I bought a Raspberry Pi 4 4GB - 2019 model from amazon The seller says the model is 2019

enter image description here

But in the Pi circuit board its mentioned 2018.

enter image description here

So did I receive an old model or does the circuit board always say the year as 2018 ?

    That's the date the design for the 4B (ver 1) was done. It took a year from design to production.

cat /proc/device-tree/model will show details. My original Pi4 shows Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.1

I believe later models with USB fix are Rev 1.2.

The Pi4 was announced on 24 Jun 2019 - there never was a 2018 model, although the board design may be 2018.

  • The command prints Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.2
