Sony has announced that it will be releasing its new ultra-thin 4K TVs in the United States this summer. The new lineup features a sleek design and is powered by the new 4K Processor X1, Android TV is also present onboard. The 2015 lineup includes six new series of 4K Ultra HD TVs, the X830C, X850C and X930C/X940C which can all be pre-ordered today and they’ll arrive in May. X900C/X910C will be available in the summer.
The X930C and X940C series TVs are also compatible with High Dynamic Range content though the support will be flipped on through a network update later this year. These are the models that you should consider getting if you want to stream HDR content from the likes of Amazon.
Android TV is Google’s relatively new platform with which it intends to take over your living room. It provides access to apps and games, streaming services and additional content from the Play Store through the TV itself.
Sony’s new ultra-thin 4K TVs start at $1,299 for the 43-inch X830C and goes all the way up to $7,999 for the 74-inch X940C. The company has not yet revealed pricing for the X900C which it claims to be the thinnest LED TV in the world at just 0.2-inches thin.
Sony says that the bezel-free edge on this TV is so thin that it “practically vanishes while watching,” and its Vanishing Edge feature allows the picture to fill the screen to the very edge so it feels as if the picture is floating on the wall.
