Roku is prepping its next-gen media streaming devices, and blogger Dave Zatz got the scoop on the names (and a few new features) last month. Now he has pictures. Lots and lots of pictures.

Say hello to the new Roku Express, Premier, and Ultra hardware.

Here’s a run-down of what we know about the new devices so far:

  • Roku Express 3700: An entry-level model that’s half the size of a normal Roku box
  • Roku Express Plus 3710: A fancier version of the above (maybe with more ports?)
  • Roku Premiere 4620: A larger box, probably with a faster processor and possibly with 4K support
  • Roku Premier+ 4630: Same as above, plus Ethernet, a microSD card slot, HDR support, and maybe an improved remote control
  • Roku Ultra 4640: 4K support, HDR support, and a bunch of ports including USB, optical, Ethernet, and a microSD card reader

Roku hasn’t officially announced the new hardware yet, so we’ll have to wait a little while to wait to find out of those features can be confirmed, if there are more features we don’t know about, and how much the new models will cost (although it’d be odd if they were much more expensive than their predecessors, which tend to sell for around $50 – $130).

  1. you need to activate your Roku device it’s an important aspect for watching your favorite channels. For activating roku please follow up this link https://www.rokuactivationcode… or ring this toll-free 1-844-965-4357

  2. Roku needs a new OS or at least revamp what they have. It’s really showing it’s age compared AppleTV or FireTV/AndroidTV.

    1. Because “Let’s rearrange the deck chairs in the name of fad over function” I guess.

      1. Take a look at Playstation Vue on Roku and then look at it on FireTV. The Roku is limited on what it can present.

        1. I’ve used PSVue on both Roku and Amazon devices… Is the difference really a limitation of the Roku operating system, or were a few corners cut when the Roku app for PSVue was developed?

          I’ve used Windows boxes, Android sticks, first-gen Apple TV, Sony media streamers, Fire, and Roku. Roku is – by FAR – the best system available. The only hardware support Roku seems to be missing (for my usage) is the ability to stream directly from an HDHomerun. Right now I have to go through my Plex Server to use it.

  3. I used to be a big fan of my Roku, but these days I much prefer my Minix set-top box. It only cost a little more than my Roku 3, but it’s way more useful. No HD Netflix of course, but I don’t use that service anyway.
