Sony's amazingly thin Android TV sets to be released in July
If any manufacturer has stood by Google for their smart TV endeavors, we have to say it is definitely Sony. They were leading the Google TV race back in the day, and this year they have invested all their smart TV efforts on Android TV. It’s awesome to see such an important TV maker back our favorite platform, but it’s even more exciting when we see they are bringing us some of the most stunning televisions around.
Yes, we are talking about those amazingly thin 4K TV sets we checked out at CES 2015. That thing was only 4.9 mm at its thinnest point (which is pretty much most of the panel). It’s truly insane when you witness such thinness in person. Just to put it in perspective, most modern smartphones can’t get that thin. The only one I can think of that is as thin as these TVs is the Oppo R5.
We were all going nuts after learning these TV sets would arrive in May, but that month came and went with no news about these TV sets. Today we are glad to tell you we are finally learning about price and availability. Though they did miss their launch goal, Sony managed to get the X900C 4K Ultra HD TV all ready for a July 2015 release, while the X910C version will be hitting store shelves “this summer”.
The X900C will come in two iterations, with size being the only differentiation. One will measure 55 inches, while the larger one will have a 65-inch display. These will cost $2,499 and $3999, accordingly. Meanwhile the massive 75-inch X910C 4K Ultra HD TV will cost a whopping $5499. Retailers like Sony, Amazon and Best Buy will be the first to carry them, and pre-sales are said to begin today.
So there you have it, guys! I can almost see myself marveling over these TVs at the store, because I am not spending that much on a TV. They are pricey, but they offer one hell of an experience. Not to mention, these things are gorgeous. It will definitely take your living room to a whole other level. Are any of you buying one?
