As “small” technology such as smartphones continues to get thinner, it seems that bigger tech is following suit.

At the 2015 CES in las Vegas, Sony unveiled its new range of 4K resolution flatscreen TVs, comprising 12 models ranging in size from 43 inches up to 75 inches.

Sony even claims that one model, the Bravia X90C, is the world’s thinnest 4K television. It is just 4.9mm at its thinnest point, which is thinner than an Xperia Z3 phone.

All the new TVs in Sony’s 4K range feature a 4K Processor X1, which Sony says brings excellent clarity, colour and contrast to 4K content, and also up-scales both standard-definition and high-definition content to near-4K quality.

And rather than develop its own Smart TV system, Sony has chosen to go with Google’s Android TV operating system.

Sony says that its Android TV supports voice search in 42 languages, via the built-in microphone on the touchpad remote control. It also says that users can play their Android mobile games on their big-screen TVs.

Sony also launched its first TVs featuring high-resolution audio, which the company says offers better-than-CD sound quality.

“High-Resolution Audio makes its TV debut for 2015 on the X94C and X93C,” Sony says. “Hi-Res Audio is a premium music experience that takes you beyond CD quality.

“Thanks to DSEE HX, the audio of whatever you’re watching – dialogue, music and more – is automatically up-scaled to near high-resolution audio quality for a more immersive, lifelike listening experience.”

The new range of BRAVIA 4K and Full HD televisions from Sony will be available in UK from February.

More details on the new range can be found at Sony’s website.
