Roku's next streaming boxes will have new names like 'Premiere' and 'Ultra'
Roku is likely to move away from its longtime numerical naming scheme (Roku 1, Roku 2, Roku 3, Roku 4) when the company next updates its product lineup sometime this fall. Instead, according to Zatz Not Funny, the lineup will switch over to names like "Roku Express" and "Roku Premiere" with the next hardware refresh. You can expect to see five models in all, if these new vendor authorizations are accurate. The Roku 1 will be replaced by the Roku Express and Roku Express Plus, though it's not yet clear what the difference between these two boxes will be. One could offer a slightly faster processor or better remote. The Roku Premiere and Roku Premiere Plus will succeed the existing Roku 2 and Roku 3 models, and both are expected to support 4K video. At present, only the current Roku 4 supports Ultra HD video. The Premiere Plus may also be compatible with HDR video for added dynamic range and a more immersive viewing experience.
