All you need is a 4GB RAM version of the hardware and a 16GB (or larger) microSD for installation and execution. Full compatibility with the new Compute Module 4 variant announced just a few days ago is guaranteed. Here are the words of Mark Shuttleworth, Canonical CEO, in translated form.

With this release, we celebrate the commitment of the Raspberry Pi Foundation to put open computing in the hands of people around the world. We are honored to be able to support the initiative by optimizing Ubuntu for the Raspberry Pi, allowing you to leverage it for personal use, educational purposes or to start a new business.
