The Apple TV 4 Will Be A Mighty Upgrade, But Not Ready For 4K Just Yet

It was just a few minutes back we were treated to a report suggesting that the Apple TV 4 will start at a price point of $149 while also featuring universal search. But now, 9to5Mac has chimed in with a large scoop and brings to us all the hardware details of the new Apple TV 4.

According to the publication, the Apple TV 4 will come in two storage options - 8 and 16GB. Apart from that, the new set-top box will be powered by an A8 chip, and despite the processor's more than adequate capabilities, the new Apple TV won't support 4K content. Furthermore, the report also touches upon the remote of the Apple TV 4, and reveals that it will be a color matching offering and will be darker in shade, but will still be made of metal. 9to5Mac also touches upon the fact that the remote will feature two tactile buttons, located underneath the 'touchpad,' one for Siri and other for going back to the home screen. The remote will also feature 'rocker buttons' to control the volume as well.

Lastly, the report says that the Apple TV 4 hardware will be larger than the current set-top box which the Cupertino ships to the market. Apart from that the new Apple TV 4 will ship with the same ports that are found in the Apple TV 3, so don't expect any new surprises in that regard.

It's surprising to see how much has been leaked just days before Apple's big keynote next week. And judging by the pace of leaks we are witnessing, we wouldn't be surprised at all if we are treated to an image leak of the new Apple TV 4 in all its glory. After all, there's no hiding from the prying eyes these days.

As we mentioned before, Apple is set to hold its event on the 9th of September, and we expect the company to take the wraps off the iPhone 6s, the new Apple TV 4 as well as give us final release dates for its next-gen mobile and desktop software - iOS 9, OS X El Capitan and watchOS 2.

The event will be live streamed and we'll be covering everything in great detail so be sure to tune in on the 9th of September for a handful of news.
