Apple TV with 4K and HDR support reportedly coming this fall
According to the Wall Street Journal, the company is expected to release three new devices iPhone 8 along with the updated versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus that will be called iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus.
Following several leaks about Apple’s controversial yet virtually bezel-less redesign, a detailed iPhone 8 dummy model confirmed that the devices would have an elongated 18.5:9 aspect ratio like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, Forbes reported.
The iPhone 8 is expected to feature a bigger 5.8 inch display. However, the device’s overall foot-print should reduce considering the bezel-less display.
The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus is reported to sport a 4.7 inch and a 5.5inch LCD sceen respectively. The smaller variant might sport 2GB RAM whereas the bigger, iPhone 7Plus will come with 3GB RAM to support the dual-camera.
Apple might also launch a new Apple Watch which supports a SIM card, making it a standalone device.
Apple is planning to unveil a new version of the Apple TV this September. According to a report by Bloomberg, the Cupertino-company is finally refreshing the Apple TV after nearly two years, bringing it up to 4K streaming standards.
The new set-top box will reportedly have a faster processor and support High Dynamic Range (HDR) video.
The 4K resolution represents a sizeable bump up compared to traditional “HD” resolution, allowing for sharper movies and TV, and HDR technology offers the greatest accuracy in how colors are displayed on a TV.
