Sony announced that pre-sales for their new 4k Android TVs started on Sunday with full purchase availability beginning in July for their smaller 55” model (X900C) while the larger 75” model (X9100C) will be available this summer. You can buy them through Sony, Best Buy, or Amazon.
The TV itself is incredibly thin and wins the title for Sony’s thinnest TV to date coming in at just under 0.2 inches thick. The TV will be powered by Sony’s newest X1 processor (not to be confused with NVIDIA’s Tegra X1 processor) to be able to deliver top notch color and clarity whether you’re watching in HD or 4K. The processor also has the ability to upscale regular HD images to 4K as well.
The TVs are both running Android TV so you can get some of your favorite apps installed directly on the TV. From Android games to your favorite streaming services they are all right there at your fingertips, or voice with the voice search function.
The last, and very interesting, bit of information Sony announced about their new TVs is that you will be able to bring the gaming of PlayStation directly to the TV through PlayStation Now. PlayStation 3 games will be able to be streamed directly to the TV and you can play them with a DUALSHOCK 4 controller. The games from Android on a TV alone are enough to make it quite a capable stand alone gaming system but having PlayStation Now built into the TV as well is something new to entice more gamers to get on board with the TV.
Having the power of Android TV and PlayStation Now on a gorgeous looking 4K display like this would be amazing but it won’t come cheap; the 55” model will run you $2,499 and the 75” one will be $5,499.
