Sony reveals its thinnest ever Bravia LCD 4K smart TV at CES


Sony has unveiled its thinnest ever 4K LCD TV at less than 5mm thick at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Sony’s X9000C Bravia series measures a svelte 4.9mm at its thinnest point and has a new 4K Processor X1 onboard for enhanced contrast and colour accuracy for both HD and 4K Ultra High Definition. It’s actually thinner than the Sony Xperia Z3 smartphone.

It also retains Sony’s 4K X-Reality Pro for excellent upscaling and Triluminos screen technology that creates an even wider colour reproduction.

They will be available in 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch sizes.

All up Sony will have nine new Bravia TV ranges that will range in sizes from 49-inch to 75-inch.

All of Sony’s 2015 Bravia TVs will also now have Google’s latest Android TV operating system onboard to make it easier to stream videos and will also be compatible with GoogleCast to offer even more connectivity.

With a lack of local 4K content to enjoy on Sony’s TVs, the company has revealed a new handycam to give customers the opportunity to capture their own 4K videos.
