More info needed about the new Pimoroni screen


#1

Please can you answer the following questions about the HyperPixel - 3.5" Hi-Res Display for Raspberry Pi:

  1. It looks like there is a touch and a non-touch version, how do you make sure you get the right one (there is no drop-down menu or anything)?
  2. What is the one line installer as it doesn’t show it on the description unlike most Pimoroni products?
    Thanks in advance,
    LouisPi

  1. There’s no non-touch version yet. That’s something we’re considering in future.

  2. https://github.com/pimoroni/hyperpixel

Software was a little bit of a last-minute rush ;)

Thanks for the help! So it has the bit printed on the back saying that touching the screen does something/nothing is just for the future.

I’d guess it’s a funny way for them to mark it’s been through quality control.

exactly what @major_tomm said. I’m sure if there is a non-touch version one day it will need a different PCB… or perhaps not, it could just not populate the chip landing, but I would expect the silk screen to be different regardless and the name to differ (slightly).
