Roku, a California based company is very popular thanks to its great line of media streaming devices that are greater in terms of popularity and sales compared to devices like Apple TV and Chromecast. Currently, there are reports that the company might release the Roku 4 but for now, the previous generations of Roku are still quite popular and widely used. Some of the many devices from Roku that have satisfied tons of users are Roku 1, Roku 2, Roku 3 and the Roku Streaming stick. Prices for these devices vary from as low as $40 to for the Roku Streaming stick to $100 for the Roku 3, which is a quite affordable price tag compared to the prices on devices being offered by its competitors.
Roku is quite similar to a company known as GoPro (famous for making action cameras), in the sense that it doesn’t rest on its achievements. Instead, Roku has kept on releasing upgrades that are better and well-equipped through their relevance, usability and performance. However, even with the upgrades, the Roku 2 and Roku 3 offer the same internal hardware.
The major points of differences are the remote controls used by these devices along with their respective price tags. The Roku 3 had faster hardware than its predecessor. The only major difference is the remote control and Roku also added a further juicy voice search facility to it.
Meanwhile, Roku 4, the company’s next generation media streaming device is expected to come out during summer or fall, however earlier predictions slated it for a springtime launch. It seems that the Roku 4 release date has been delayed. People now wonder if the company will still amaze people with the hardware on the Roku 4. The Apple TV 2015 model will be released next month and we just wonder if the Roku 4 can be better that.
