OSMC announced new Vero4k, opinions?

1) Is it on the Vero 4K roadmap for the remote to have voice functionality in near future? Or is there a compatible voice remote for the Vero?

2) If I have a USB HDD (WD My Passport) permanently connected, will Vero 4K spin it down after a certain amount of time of inactivity?

3) Can Vero 4K be powered up and down from the remote?

4) Can Vero 4K be powered up and down using Harmony Elite?
1. Not at this time unfortunately. Voice Control comes for 'free' on Android platforms; but is quite complex to implement on other systems.
2. The hard disk will spin down after 15 minutes. We will make this configurable in the future. 
3. In the next update, it's possible from: CEC; most USB remotes; OSMC RF remote. If there's enough demand, we can also add standby support for LIRC based remotes.
4. Assuming you'd be pairing it as a Bluetooth device (gives the best performance) it would send uinput events, so Vero 4K would be able to listen for these events.

I hope this helps.
