https://zatznotfunny.com/2017-09/universal-roku-remote/ Apparently, Roku is working on a new 4K Streaming Stick with HDR that will retain the stick form factor and not a dongle like the Chromecast. Plans are to include a new remote on some models that can control your TV better, along with a new Roku Express with a significantly better CPU for those who dont have a 4K TV, or just want a basic streamer. Not sure if there will be a Roku Express+ for those with SD TV, perhaps there will be one available. No new information on better models other than the remote. Rather than using IR for this new enhanced Roku Remote, perhaps it will use HDMI CEC (if your TV can support it). Expect these new Roku devices to be available later this year. Edit: Seems like the new remote will be IR not HDMI CEC.
