Sony has unveiled its full 2013 TV line-up. Besides the Ultra HD TVs Sony is also launching a range of TV models for the mass market, including W900, W802 and W650 with new designs and new features.
Sonyâ€™s 2013 LED models
Sony has a lot of exciting things to show off at this yearâ€™s CES show and the new TVs look promising. Sony calls its new design expression for â€ťSense of Quartzâ€ť.
The most expensive TVs will obviously be the Ultra HD models but right below those models we find the new W900 range that will be available in 40, 46 and 55 inch sizes – and possibly larger. A new base design that was first introduced on last yearâ€™s high-end TV is reused. A new Triluminos panel is driven by Sonyâ€™s X-Reality chip and MotionFlow XR960. It also has active 3D technology.
Sony is also launching a new 8 series called W802 that uses the same picture engine as the W900 – but not the Triluminos panel. W802 also offers MotionFlow XR480 and passive 3D based on the inexpensive polarized 3D glasses. W802 will be available in 42, 47 and 55 inch sizes.
Lastly, Sony mentions a W650 range and a W600 range (for select countries). These models come with X-Reality Pro chips, MotionFlow XR240 but no 3D.
The new models also have a range of new â€ťsmartâ€ť features including the option to use the TV guide on a tablet or swipe content from a tablet or smartphone up onto the TV screen. NFC pairing is also built in as well as streaming apps.
The new Bravia TV line-up will be available from spring 2013 and the Ultra HD TVs a few months later. We have no pricing details yet.
