[Update: Added sorting] Google Play Movies v4.8 prepares to enable 4K upgrades, likely making them free [APK Teardown]

Google added 4K movies to its library back in late 2016, following the launch of the Chromecast Ultra. Since then, many people — myself included — came to realize that there was one big oversight: It's not possible to upgrade your existing HD movies to 4K. There was no upgrade pricing or even an option to remove a movie from your account and then purchase it again in 4K at full price.

Roku Premiere is now available, offering 4K streaming for $40

But while the Premiere only offers HDR10 and is a bit bigger than a streaming stick, many prefer its user interface and remote design.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review: A Sony vanity project and nothing more

There was a time not that many years ago when Sony was trusted implicitly by consumers all over the world. You knew if you bought a Sony product, you were getting the best, and people were willing to pay more for that peace of mind. However, Sony has struggled to find its place in today's hyper-competitive world, particularly when it comes to smartphones. Sony makes phones that are good in some ways, but the issues often outweigh the strengths. Through it all, the price is still consistently higher than competing devices.

"Atlas" is the codename for a 4K-equipped board recently discovered in a file on Google's Chromium Git.
