This is a general-purpose 8.8" HDMI display from Waveshare, with 480x1920 resolution (vertical by default but can be changed for horizontal use) intended for use as a secondary/side display.

The display features an IPS panel with 170° viewing angles and a 480 x 1920 resolution. The body is made from CNC-processed alloy which contains dual hi-fi speakers. On the side is a full-size HDMI port along with a USB-C power port (~500mA current draw at the brightest setting) and a combined ON/OFF/backlight brightness button. A collapsable stand built into the rear makes this great as a portable monitor solution...or just at a great angle under your desk.

You can use this monitor with a Raspberry Pi, Jetson Nano, Windows PC and many other HDMI output devices (setup support is only offered for the listed devices, via the product documentation).

Comes complete with a USB-C cable and HDMI cable.

  • If you wish to use this monitor with a Raspberry Pi Zero, you will need to buy a Mini-HDMI cable.
