Sony Releases Top-of-the-line 85-inch 4K TVs for 2018

Sony XBR85X900F 4K UHD HDR TV (2018)

Sony’s Biggest LED TV is 85-inches; Biggest OLED TV is 65-inches.

Sony announced their latest flagship 4K TVs will be available early April 2018. The largest TVs include two 85-inch models priced at $4500 (model X850F) and $5300 (X900F) each. The more expensive model implements local LED dimming and better color processing versus frame dimming in the cheaper model. In addition, Sony’s best OLED 4K TVs will ship in April in 55-inch and 65-inch sizes (A8F BRAVIA OLED series) that should look even better.

Sony’s A8F BRAVIA OLED TVs are said to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before with truly exceptional black, shadow and color. Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the X1 Extreme processor creating exquisite, unprecedented contrast. The X1 Extreme processor precisely controls the tremendous number of pixels and extends the capability of OLED to deliver an exquisite 4K HDR picture. With Sony’s Acoustic Surface technology, the sound comes to you from the entire screen, with voices appearing to come directly from the characters’ mouths and explosions directly from the action on the screen. Together with OLED’s exceptionally wide viewing angle, the A8F series offers an unmatched visual and sound experience regardless of the viewing position.

The new OLED TVs also feature an all-new one slate design curated to look beautiful wherever the TV may rest. The enhanced design makes it easy to mount the TV even closer to the wall, and the redesigned vertical stand disappears when placed on TV stands or entertainment centers. In addition, the A8F BRAVIA OLED will support Dolby Vision via a firmware update to be delivered later this year for even greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors.

Sony biggest LED TVs of 2018, the X900F and X850F series are now available in 85-inch options. The X900F (X90F/XF90 series) also features the X1 Extreme processor, providing the ultimate 4K HDR viewing experience by incorporating three technologies that improve picture quality, no matter what the content source: Object-based HDR remaster, Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR and Dual database processing. X-tended Dynamic Range PRO 6x technology ensures dark scenes are darker and bright scenes brighter with up to six times the brightness range of conventional LED TVs, delivering beautiful night shots full of dazzling lights and deeper blacks. For sports and high speed scenes, particularly in larger screen sizes, Sony’s newest technology, X-Motion Clarity, helps keep fast action smooth and clear with images controlled to minimize blur with no loss in brightness.

The X850F (X85F/XF85 series) features the 4K HDR Processor X1, which together with 4K X-Reality PRO up-converts Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) content to near 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) quality, while HDR content is displayed in stunning clarity, color, and contrast. Object-based HDR Remaster technology can detect, analyze and optimize each object in the picture individually to adjust the overall contrast for a more natural and realistic picture on screen. A TRILUMINOS Display provides colors as vivid as nature’s own with rich, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. Additionally, Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR reveals thousands of shades and gradations of light, for sunsets as bright and clear as real life

The X900F 4K HDR TVs will support Dolby Vision via a firmware update to be delivered within this year. To bring sound to the next level, the X900F TV is designed perfectly to match Sony’s new Dolby Atmos sound bar, the HT-X9000F.

Sony’s Android TV enables viewers to enjoy a huge range of apps from Google Play, including YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, Pandora and more. To make your TV and home even smarter, the A8F BRAVIA OLED, X900F and X850F TVs have Google Assistant built-in. To activate the Google Assistant just push the microphone button on the remote and use your voice to ask a question or say a command. This allows users to seamlessly playback or search for content, play music or stream photos, access thousands of apps or control many smart home devices through their Sony TV. Furthermore, Sony’s Android TV works with popular voice assistant speakers such as Sony’s own LF-S50G, Google Home or Amazon Alexa.
