Sony has four new Android-powered 4K smart televisions

With researchers predicting that the market for 4K displays will exceed $50 billion by 2020, it’s no surprise that Sony wants to corner the market while it’s still in its infancy. The company has just put four Android-powered 4K smart televisions up for pre-order, with prices ranging from $1,300 to $8,000 and shipping expected to begin in May. This is the same lineup that Sony unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier in the year. 

Four models from Sony’s 2015 Android TV-powered 4K television range are now available for pre-order, with shipping to begin in May. The Japanese electronics giant unveiled its 4K TV lineup for 2015 at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, but kept pricing and release information to itself, only saying the new sets would be available sometime in the spring. Those details are finally here and the TVs themselves aren’t far off. According to the company, all models in the X830C, X850C, X930C and X940C series are now available for pre-order and will begin shipping to customers in May, while the super-svelte X900C—slimmer than three U.S. quarters, pictured at top—and the X910 series models will be available in the summer. The entry-level X830C is available in 43- and 49-inch sizes, priced at $1,300 and $1600, respectively. Move a little further up and you’ll find the X850C series with 55- 65- and 75-inch models, costing $2,200, $3,500 and $5,000, respectively. Finally, we have the two HDR-ready sets at the very top: the $4,500 65-inch X930C and the $8,000 75-inch X940C.
