Apple just announced Apple TV 4K at its event in San Francisco today, as expected. It supports HDR or High Dynamic Range videos from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Apple says that it offers sharp, crisp images, richer, more true-to-life colors, and far greater detail in both dark and bright scenes. iTunes users will get automatic upgrades of HD titles in their existing iTunes library to 4K HDR versions when they become available.
The Apple TV 4K brings new Siri Remote with a new white circle around the menu button. It has A10X Fusion chip, the same chip that powers iPad Pro for a clear 4K HDR experience. “The high-performance 4K video scaler makes HD content look better than ever on a 4K TV,” says Apple.
The TV app will be available in Australia and Canada, in addition to the US. And, by the end of the year, it will expand to France, Germany, Norway, Sweden and the UK. Later this year, the TV app will make it easier to watch and get updates about live sports just by voice commands.
Apple TV 4K starts at US$179 (Rs. 11460 approx.) for 32GB and US$199 (Rs. 12740 approx.) for 64GB and will be available for pre-order from September 15 and ships from September 22.
