New Sony Bravia LCD TVs hit Japan
Japan is normally a good place to look if you want a glimpse of the next-gen gadgets that will be heading to the UK down the line, and Sony’s latest Bravia LCD TV range looks to be quite something.
There are six models in all – every one full HD, naturally – and all six are 3D-capable too. Sony’s latest range of home cinema technologies include the X-Reality PRO picture processing engine, S-Force front surround 3D sound, while the trusty MotionFlow tech is present too.
There are 46in and 55in models available in the top two sub-ranges. The premium HX920 models, priced at around £2,600 and £3,200 in Japan respectively, come with the full 3D Intelligent Peak 3D LED system for high-quality 3D viewing, while the step-down NX820 series pair (£2,180 and £2,775) come with lesser edge-lit LED panels.
The entry-level NX720 pair come in 40in (£1,580) and 46in (£2,130) screen sizes, and forego Wi-Fi and Sony’s distinctive monolithic design offered by the other four models.
All the new models support Sony’s recently launched Qriocity video-streaming service, as well as a bunch of other web services, including Skype, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
