Apple is all set to hold an event where it will unveil the highly-anticipated iPhone X along with iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The company is also reported to launch a new Apple TV with 4K support and a new leak just ahead of today’s launch reveals some interesting features.
According to a tweet by developer Steve Troughton-Smith, the latest Apple TV will be officially known as Apple TV 4K. The TV will be powered by a three core A10 Fusion CPU along with 3GB of RAM. This is interesting, as the previous generation Apple TV ships with an A8 processor along with 2GB of RAM. The device is already reported to support 4K content, so naturally, it requires more processing power.
Further, the developer says that the upcoming Apple TV will render natively at 2160p resolution and will support different colour formats, including Dolby Vision HDR, HDR 10 and more. Apple was previously reported to have begun discussions with movie studios for creating 4K versions of the movies and make it available on iTunes. The company has already discussed the same with the content companies that already have apps on its Store, a person close to the development told the publication.

Apple has banked heavily on the iPhones, which contributes more than half of its revenue. This coupled with service business like App Store and Apple Music has helped generate 16 percent in the recent quarter. However, same cannot be said for Apple TV, as the company has witnessed a decline in sales year-on-year. However, it seems that the company is now working to change this and it will compete with the likes of Roku, Amazon, Google and more.
