Sony unveils 4K OLED TVs with HDR

Sony unveils 4K OLED TVs with HDR

The display panel was pure LG technology under license but the rest of that rather impressive television was pure Sony hardware.

Perhaps most exciting out of the new announcements is Sony's A8F Series, a TV lineup that builds upon the success Sony saw with the A1E it introduced a year ago.

All three TV series are powered by Android TV and include Google Assistant, as well as Chromecast features. However, the major announcement comes with latest X900f series and A8F Bravia OLED series.

The new Sony A8F 4K HDR OLED TVs is the successor of the previous year launched A1E BRAVIA OLED 4K HDR TV.

The company claims that unlike the traditional LED TVs, the Sony A8F offers a fusion of sound and image and it features TRILUMINOS Display with X-Reality PRO technology. The 2017 A1E sold at these prices when released in early 2017 and finished off past year retailing for about $3000 to $4000 for the 55 inch and 65 inch editions respectively.

The new X900F series of LCD TVs comes in sizes ranging from 49 all the way up to 85 inches.

Sony has announced new Ultra HD televisions for CES 2018, chief among them being the new A8F Series OLED TVs with the maker's 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme and Acoustic Surface. The new model's stand is different, however, with a pair of legs as opposed to the A1E's central stand. The series follows Sony's popular and well reviewed XBR X900E models introduced in 2017. On the other hand, the Sony X900F4K HDR TVs also comes with TRILUMINOS Display along with the new X-Motion Clarity technology of the company.

We're also waiting to hear about 2018 replacements for Sony's 2017 X930E and X940E premium models. Both the series also support Dolby Vision, which basically delivers higher brightness, higher contrast and more vibrant colours via Internet video services and HDMI.
