Sony introduces world’s first 65 inch curved LED TV at 2013 IFAby Sayan Chakravarty
In quick succession, all the major players in the Flat TV manufacturing industry have launched curved TVs. Just a week after LG and Samsung launched their curved OLED TVs, Sony has unveiled its own 65 inch curved TV at the 2013 IFA. It’s the largest curved TV to hit the market and also the world’s first to use LED rather than OLED technology. Now that’s where the problem arises, as an LED TV, it will suffer from the same problems or limitations as a normal flat screen LED TV do. It won’t be able to match up to the outstanding color contrast produced by OLED TVs.
The curved LED TV named ‘KDL-65S990A’ is equipped with a full HD Triluminos display, X-Reality Pro processing engine and dynamic edge LED backlighting. It also sports passive 3D technology in addition to Sony’s smartphone and tablet remote control app, MHL, Miracast and NFC technology. It will hit the markets by 27th October with a price tag of $4000 and Sony has started taking pre-orders for it.
