Roku 4 leaked specs confirm a 4K, Quad-core device
Earlier today, Roku accidentally published an updated spec sheet in their developer guide which included information about the upcoming Roku 4. The specs have since been removed, but if they’re accurate, the new flagship Roku device will support 2160p 4K video output and pack a quad-core ARM processor. The specs listed OpenGL ES 2.0 support, which seems to indicate gaming is not a top priority for the new device, however, the field for “Wi-Fi Direct Game Remote” was marked with “yes” but that could just refer to the standard motion capable Roku remote. In comparison, the 1st-gen Fire TV supports OpenGL 3.0 while the new 2nd-gen Fire TV supports OpenGL 3.1. Another oddity is the decision to reportedly include 1.5GB of RAM in the new device instead of a round amount like 1GB or 2GB. The leaked specs also listed the presence of optical audio, ethernet, and USB ports, as well as a microSD slot.

    Maybe 2gb ram, with 512mb reserved for video? I thought the min for 4k devices was 2gb.

  2. Josh says:

    I think it is 2 GB of Ram. The FCC listed at the below FCC site…

    …shows other Roku models other than Riku 4 (4210X, 4230X, 4210X1, 4230X1, 4200X1, 4205X1). However, one of the PDF has internal pictures of the Roku box. If you look closely at one of them, you notice two K4B1G0846G-BCK0 chips. Which are 1Gb G-die DDR3 SDRAM. Plus those models seems to have the same processor that the current Roku 3 has.

    But I could me wrong. But if those models have 2 GB of Ram, I’m sure this model also does.
