24 Jul 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

The ultra thin X90C was unveiled in January and it is now shipping in Europe and the US, confirms Sony. The TV is just 4.9 mm at its thinnest point but it still offers Ultra HD and Android TV.

At its thinnest point the TV is thinner than modern smartphones but at the bottom half there is a thicker box for processors and tuners. Sony says that the TV can be mounted flush to the wall because of a new wall bracket solution.

The TV is a design statement from Sony; LCD displays can be almost as thin as OLED displays. Despite the thin profile Sony has still managed to pack it with its latest X1 processor that also powers other 2015 high-end TVs. The panel has Ultra HD resolution and Triluminos (an extended color space). The TV does not support HDR (high dynamic range).

Furthermore, Sony has integrated Google’s Android TV operating system, offering access to apps, channels, streaming, music and games. The TV also supports HEVC and VP9 decoding, allowing you to stream Netflix and YouTube in 4K quality.
