Steve Troughton-Smith who revealed details about the upcoming iPhone models has declared that Apple is set to launch the Apple TV 4K, presumably at the company’s event on 12th September. The device has been expected for a while but now we have some specifications for the device too – and with the event being so close, it’s unlikely that the details are incorrect.
…I guess three cores would make it the A10X Fusion. Correction!— Steve T-S (@stroughtonsmith) September 11, 2017
In the original tweet, Troughton-Smith says that the device will ship with a three-core A10 Fusion CPU and 3GB RAM but quickly followed up saying “I guess three cores would make it the A10X Fusion. Correction!” That last tweet sort of throws a spanner in the works when it comes to guessing which CPU will actually ship with the Apple TV 4K.
With 4K being included in the title of the device, it could mean that we will see the current device stick around or even receive a revision to its hardware.
A tvOS 11 firmware leak also testifies in the affirmative that Apple is planning to release a 4K-capable device. Those with access to the software found that the Top Shelf app images were available in Ultra HD (4K) – a curious inclusion if Apple were not shipping a 4K device this time around.
Apple’s event will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino on Tuesday, 12th September at 10 AM Pacific Time. Stay tuned to Neowin and we'll deliver all the event's news.
