HyperPixel 4.0 Square has all the great features of our standard HyperPixel 4.0 – a crisp, brilliant IPS display with touchscreen, and high-speed DPI interface – it's just more square!
This square version of HyperPixel 4.0 is great for custom interfaces and control panels, and works really well for Pico-8 games. Everything is pre-soldered and ready to go, just pop it onto your RPi, run our installer, and away you go!

HyperPixel 4.0 Square uses a high-speed DPI interface, allowing it to shift 5x more pixel data than the usual SPI interface that these small RPi displays normally use. It has a 60 FPS frame rate and a resolution of approximately 254 pixels per inch (720x720px) on its 4.0' display. The display can show 18-bits of colour (262,144 colors).
This Touch version has a capacitive touch display that's more sensitive and responsive to touch than a resistive touch display, and it's capable of multi-touch!
Please note: when installing HyperPixel 4.0 Square onto your RPi make sure not to press down on the screen surface! Hold the board by its edges and wiggle it to mate with the extended header (or GPIO header). Also take care not to pull on the edges of the glass display when removing your HyperPixel.
It'll work with any 40-pin version of the RPi, including RPi Zero and RPi Zero W. If you're using it with a larger RPi then use the extra 40-pin header that's included to boost it up to the required height. If you're using a Zero or Zero W then just pop it straight onto the GPIO.
The included standoff kit allows you to mount your HyperPixel 4.0 Square safely and securely to your RPi. Just screw them into the posts on the underside of the HyperPixel 4.0 Square PCB and then secure with screws through the mounting holes on your RPi.
