OLED Better Or 4K? Sony Any Way Clubs Them Together


While experts are debating on what's the better TV technology, OLED or 4K, Sony has gone ahead and clubbed the two together to present the world's first 4K OLED TV at the Consumer Electronics Show this week. However, the TV is a prototype at the moment and there has been no official word from the company regarding pricing and release date.

At 56 inches, the Sony make is smaller than most 4K TVs. However, it is as big as the larger OLEDs that popped up during the show. The prototype set offers 3840-by-2160 Ultra HD resolutions on a 56-inch OLED display.

How does Sony pack all those pixels required for 4K in a smaller area? According to Mashable, "Sony worked with AU Optronics to overcome the challenges with making pixels small enough for the panel."

Kazuo Hirai, Sony's CEO, pulled the curtains off the high-tech television set at CES. While the product won't be available in the near future, Sony enthusiasts can check out the 65-inch Bravia XBR-65X900A and 55-inch Bravia XBR-55X900A , two new additions to the company's 4K TV lineup.
