Sony 84in 4K Bravia TV coming this year

KD-84X9005 has four times the resolution of Full HD sets

Sony's catchily-named KD-84X9005 84in 4K TV will be available worldwide from the end of the year, the company has announced at IFA.

The KD-84X9005 packs in a whopping 84in 3840x2160 LCD panel, with Sony's 4K X-Reality PRO picture engine powering the images. Sony claims that the set will offer a 60-degree viewing angle, while its 10 Unit Live Speaker side speaker system should ensure that the sound coming out of the set measures up to the image.

Okay, there may not be much to watch on it yet – aside from reruns of the Olympics – but we can't wait to hang one on our wall. If we can afford it – pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed, but we'll let you know the details as soon as we have them.
