Sony unveil their own 4K-capable TV, measures in at 82 inches

Sony introduce their 4K-capable 82-inch LCD TV

Hot on the heels of competitor LG and the announcement of their 84-inch 4K-capable TV, Sony have just unveiled their own 4K beast. Sony's offering has been dubbed the Bravia KD-84x9005.

Quite the strange model number, and it should be a long time before we see disc- or streaming-based 4K services. This means doshing out the kind of money on this TV is going to be mainly bragging rights, or if your PC can handle pushing out the 3,840x2,160 resolution, in playable frame rates. We should expect Sony's Bravia KD-84x9005 in Q4 2012.


I'm more than happy for LG or Sony to send me out one of these TVs, and I'll test out as much high-res stuff as they want. Can you imagine three of these in Eyefinity or Surround Vision? I'm pretty sure I just heard my GPU smash out of the side window of my 800D and run for the hills, rightfully so.


Edit: Just realised this is actually an 84-inch TV, apologies. I'll keep the news as is to not cause our automatic system to throw it out again on Twitter and Facebook.
