Sony was once the go-to brand for TVs, but they’ve lost much of that shine in recent years. Their new Bravia TVs, however, look set to change that.
While other manufacturers have gone with custom UIs for their tellys, Sony’s instead gone for the safer option, adopting Google’s own Android TV instead. This means you won’t just be able to share content with your smartphones straight with ease, you’ll also have direct access to apps from Google Play for use on your TV.
The range of TVs that’ll be on sale is pretty comprehensive, but these two models really caught our eye. Pricing and exact availability isn’t known yet though.
Sony Bravia X9000C Sries 4K LCD TV
It doesn’t just have Sony’s latest X1 Processor, X-Reality Pro, and Triluminos display for stunning 4K imagery – the X9000C looks just fantastic as well. Just 4.9mm at it’s thinnest with virtually no bezel, it’s even got a mounting system that puts it right up against the wall, leading to what Sony’s calling a “revolutionary floating style”. And that’s actually not too far from the truth.
Sony Bravia X9300C Series 4K LCD TV
One thing that we usually find lacking with TVs nowadays is the less-than-stellar sound. Not so with the X9300C. It’s got a full set of front-facing speakers for some impressive audio performance, which is further enhanced by Hi-Res Audio support, meaning it’ll double as a HRA player too. Seeing as sound equipment is usually hooked up to your TV already, that’s quite a welcome addition for audiophiles. Of course, it’s also got the best of what Sony’s display technologies have to offer for an immersive 4K viewing experience too.
