According to reports, Sony is planning to introduce an 84-inch 4K LCD television at upcoming consumer electronics fair IFA in Berlin, which runs Aug 31 to Sept 5.
These rumours come from an Aug 23 report on Cnet.com which claimed a source “speaking on the condition of anonymity” revealed that Sony would be unveiling an 84 inch TV that can display a huge 4,096×3,072 pixels — four times the number in a normal HD — a display which is known as 4K.
According to the report, the TV will also feature a sidelit LCD panel, removable speakers and was described by the sources as having a “re-imagined retro-style appearance with a modern twist”.
