Sony revealed 55in and 65in versions of its flagship 84in UHD 4K TV today at the company's CES press conference, showing a renewed commitment to 4k following concerns it wasn't doing enough to encourage the growth of 4k content.

The new 55in and 65in X900A TVs will join the already announced 84in monster when they launch in the coming months, bringing 3,840x2,160 resolution images to a more affordable (but as yet unmentioned) price. They will include a 4K-optimised version of Sony's Reality Pro picture engine, as well as Motionflow XR960 image processing and passive 3D support, with four sets of glasses provided with each TV.

Unlike the 84in flagship, which has separate speakers protruding out of the display panel, the 55in and 65in models have Sony's patented magnetic fluid speaker drivers built into the screen bezel. We've heard these speaker drivers in action before and were impressed with their quality given their size, so we're expecting good things here too.

Integrated Wi-Fi will let you connect the TVs to the Sony Entertainment network (SEN) smart TV platform, and will also support screen mirroring from a compatible smartphone or tablet. NFC and MHL support are both onboard too, along with USB playback.

As another nod to the naysayers that were asking whether Sony was at all interested in encouraging the growth of 4K content, President of Sony US Phil Molyneux revealed that Sony would launch a 4k content delivery service by the summer. Little more information was given, such as how the content would be provided or what would be available, but it's a good sign that 4k TVs might soon have something to play on them besides high resolution photos.

We only saw the new 4k models briefly at the press conference, but will be taking a closer look at each on the show floor tomorrow here at CES. Be sure to check back for a more detailed hands on.
