The Raspberry Pi foundation has now launched a new model called Raspberry Pi Zero WH.

What does ‘H’ mean? H means the 40-pin header is soldered. It can be more convenient for people who don’t own a soldering iron, or don’t feel confident soldering on their own.

Apart from the header, Raspberry Pi Zero WH specifications remain identical to the W version:

  • SoC – Broadcom BCM2835 ARM11 processor @ 1GHz with VideoCore IV GPU
  • System Memory – 512MB RAM
  • Storage – microSD slot
  • Video Output – mini HDMI port and composite video (via 2 unpopulated  pins)
  • Connectivity – 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB – 1x micro USB OTG port, 1x micro USB port for power only
  • Camera – 1x CSI camera connector
  • Expansion – Soldered 40-pin HAT-compatible header
  • Power Supply – 5V via micro USB port
  • Dimensions – 65mm x 30mm x 5mm

This will be convenient for pHat boards, but the foundation also mentioned GPIO expander tool to use Raspberry Pi Zero (W/WH)  with a PC running Debian, or other projects where you may not want to permanently solder wires, e.g. for prototyping with a breadboard.

The new Pi Zero WH should be available through all your favourite retailers. Here are some stores selling it:

Pi Zero WH at The Pi Hut
Pi Zero WH at Pimoroni
Pi Zero WH at ModMyPi
