Sony launce 4K TV in India

Amidst much fanfare, Sony has
launched "more affordable"
X9004 series 4K TV's in India
among their updated Bravia W
series lineup. What are 4k TV's
you ask? Well they are TV's with
an incredibly high resolution of
3840 x 2160 pixels, much higher
than the current popular Full HD
TV's with a resolution of 1980 x
1080 pixels.
So why the moniker 4k?
Oh because they are priced at Rs
4000 only... we wish! The 4K
moniker actually refers to the
horizontal resolution only which
is around 4000 pixels. Therefore
the 4K Ultra HD (UHD) has twice
the horizontal and vertical
resolution of the 1080p HDTV
format, with four times as many
pixels overall. Did you know –
There exists an 8K UHD format
too which is 7680 pixels × 4320
pixels.
But we don't even get Full HD
(1980 x 1080) content, leave
alone 4k?
This was actually the question
asked by a journalist at the Sony
launch in New Delhi, "...stunning
up-scale abilities..." was the
prompt response from Mr.
Kenichiro Hibi, Managing
Director, Sony India. Apparently
this is performed by their 4K X-
Reality PRO engine, irrespective
whether it's TV broadcast, web
videos, Blu-ray discs or even low
resolution smartphone clips.
While we couldn't judge the exact
quality of TV broadcasts due to
the lack of TV content, the
upscaling did seem to do a good
job.
One of the advantages of having
this high a resolution is that it
can be viewed from a distance of
just 1.5 times of the height of the
screen without pixellation issues
and enjoy a wider experience at
the same distance.
The 4K LED TV's use TRILUMINOS
LED backlighting and QD Vision's
Color IQ to present "rich,
authentic colour with subtle tones
while also replicating bold colours
including hard-to-produce red
and greens". All this means is that
the TV's have the ability to
produce good colour, where the
colour gamut is much wider for
our eyes to make out differences
between shades of the same
colour, especially reds and greens
that were demonstrated.
Are the Speakers good?
No, we aren't talking about the
speech of Mr. Kenichiro Hibi, but
rather the speakers inside Sony's
new line up. They don't sound
one bit tiny and flat like the
current gen speakers even in the
premium lineup. In fact, Sony
claims to have fitted in 'Magnetic
Fluid Speaker' technology
developed by the US space
program, which enables Sony to
keep the speakers as flat as the
screen itself while managing to
shove a sub-woofer under the
LCD which is just as thin and slim.
While you cannot expect the
sound to be equivalent to that of
home theatre speakers, they do
sound exceptionally good for
inbuilt TV speakers with enough
impressive bass in them. When
demoed, the sound didn't distort
one bit but don't count on too
high a volume either.
Expect Sony's entire W series LED
line up (W950, W900, W800,
W700, W650 and W600) to have
the same 'Magnetic Fluid Speaker'
technology in addition to Wi-Fi
Connectivity, direct 3G dongle
plug in, MHL and TV SideView.
What's the price like?
"A lot more affordable" than 84-
inch 4K TV's priced at Rs 10 Lakh
upwards (anything is more
affordable than that). To be
precise, the 4K TV 65" (165 cms)
and 55" (140 cms) screen sizes
will be available at an MRP of Rs
4,05,000 and Rs 3,05,000
respectively.
Mr Kenichiro Hibi, MD, Sony
India and Rochelle Rao launching
the TV's.

Sony Xperia ZR review:

Squeezing your flagship
smartphone in a tinier, sportier
shell is the fad in Android these
days. Not the one to blindly follow
the pack, Sony has chosen to do
things differently. The Xperia ZR
didn't get as far down as the
Galaxy S4 mini and the One mini,
and got a 4.55" display rather than
a 4.3" diagonal.
However, unlike its HTC and
Samsung rivals, the Sony Xperia ZR
is keen to match the oomph of its
flagship, offering better IP
protection at that. Considering how
important dust and water
resistance were for the Xperia Z'
success, some may as well consider
this one as an upgrade, rather than
a trimmed down version. There's
also the proper shutter key - the
Xperia ZR comes across as the
better photographer too.

The battery capacity has been kept
the same, and it's even user-
removable this time. Together with
the smaller screen of slightly lower
resolution and stamina mode, you
get a smartphone that's not only
easier to pocket, but one that will
last more than the premium
package. Now, how's that not a
winning combo? Here goes the
complete list of Xperia ZR pros and
cons.

Key features

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
support; 3G with HSPA; LTE
4.55" 16M-color 720p capacitive
touchscreen with 323ppi pixel
density; Bravia Mobile Engine 2
Android OS v4.1.1 Jelly Bean with
custom UI
Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU, 2
GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU;
Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro
chipset
13 MP autofocus camera with LED
flash and geotagging, HDR
1080p video recording @ 30fps
with HDR mode, continuous
autofocus and stereo sound
VGA front-facing camera
IP 58 certification - dust resistant
and water resistant
Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct and
DLNA; Wireless TV out
GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS
8GB of built-in storage; microSD
card slot
MHL-enabled microUSB port
Bluetooth v4.0
NFC
Standard 3.5 mm audio jack
Accelerometer and proximity
sensor
Active noise cancellation with
dedicated mic
Main disadvantage
Below-par viewing angles of the
display
Feeble loudspeaker
Low-res front facing camera
So, basically all you'll be losing if
you chose the Sony Xperia ZR over
the Xperia Z is some screen estate,
the 1080p front-facing camera and
the Full HD display. We wouldn't
call any of those a deal-breaker,
though: the smaller screen favors
portability and, at this size, 720p is
more than adequate. As for the
video-call camera, most video-chat
apps don't really support much
higher resolutions anyway.
Sony Xperia ZR at ours
It seems then that Sony has
another potential winner on its
hands. The Xperia ZR might just be
what the company needed to cruise
through the next quarter and allow
enough development time for the
Honami and Xperia Z Ultra, which
look like the kinds of projects they
wouldn't want to rush.
We need to see whether the
smartphone behaves as promised,
getting the most out of an
impressive feature set. We start
with the full physical right after
the break.
