The Roku interface's resolution on my TCL S405 (4K) TV is not 4K

I noticed that the resolution of the Roku interface on my new TCL 43S405 TV does not appear to be 4K. It looks somewhat blurry so it is probably 1080p being upscaled. Is there some way to set the resolution of the interface itself to be 4K or is it just supposed to be this way?

I know the Roku set top boxes that are 4k models have 1080p UI upscaled, assume the TVs are the same. My Roku 3 is 720p UI upscaled to 1080p.

That's unfortunate. I hoped that the Roku software can take full advantage of the 4K display and show the interface in a crisp resolution. But I guess as long as the content can support 4K, it's alright.

I'm sure down the road they'll design a 4k menu.. right now it's probably just easier, since there's far more 720p/1080p users, and not as much demand for 4k content (yet).
Yeah, I got some Rokus.
