Sony's ultra-thin 4K TVs will start at $2,499

The new lineup will cost less than Sony's past 4K TVs.

4K televisions are still somewhat of a luxury today. HD TVs have replaced the CRT televisions in the last few years, and now 4K is gaining popularity rapidly. The biggest drawback of the 4K televisions as of late has been the price. Sony's last 75 inch flagship offering before the 2015 lineup cost $7,999. Thankfully, not only has Sony improved the capabilities of their TVs, but the prices have also been lowered.

Sony's new 4K televisions are powered by Android TV and are incredibly thin. At only 0.2 inches, and with a very small bezel, the X-Series TVs are impressive. Thanks to Android TV, these televisions will have access to various apps like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, and SlingTV. Each of the three models will feature the X-Reality PRO Picture Engine to upscale HD content to 4K for an even crisper look.

The smallest of the three, the X900C, has a 55 inch display and will cost $2,499. The 65 inch version of the X900V will be $3,999. Finally, the X910C, with a 75 inch screen, will set buyers back $5,499. Though it is still very expensive, the price is easier to swallow than that of the last 75 inch 4K TV from Sony. These TVs are not meant to be affordable or compete with entry-level 4K offerings. Sony, however, is quite confident that the features and display quality are enough to justify the price.
