Description

Deep OLED blacks, pure sound harmony

A high-powered processor in this 4K OLED TV creates a beautiful OLED picture in total harmony with sound. All from a stunning one-slate design.

The processor that brings the best out of OLED’s beauty

The same powerful processor used to drive our 8K2 TVs precisely analyzes image data to bring out the intense contrast of OLED, with pure blacks, peak brightness and truly realistic pictures.

Sound and picture in harmony—the screen is the speaker

By having the screen act as the speaker, sound and picture work perfectly together with sound coming from the right place on the screen for a more cinematic experience.

One-slate design concept, incredibly thin

With our super-slim one-slate design, the screen meets the edge of the TV, immersing you in the picture without distraction.

Supreme pictures and sound, whatever the environment

Sit back and enjoy the best possible viewing experience. Sony’s unique ambient optimization technology automatically adjusts picture and sound to your environment.

Experience content as the creator intended

When pictures are digitally compressed from film to TV, quality is compromised and your experience is not as the director intended in the studio. A wide range of unique features lets you enjoy studio-quality entertainment in your own home, just as the director intended.

The processor that brings the best out of OLED’s beauty

The same powerful processor used to drive our 8K2 TVs precisely analyzes image data to bring out the intense contrast of OLED, with pure blacks, peak brightness and truly realistic pictures.

Boosting color and contrast for extra depth and realism

See real-world colors, discover the detail in deep shadow and bright highlights. With Pixel Contrast Booster, color and contrast are enhanced in bright areas so you can enjoy scenes full of lifelike shades and hues, more depth, fine texture, and the pure black contrast that only OLED can deliver.

Making color and contrast more real – Object-based HDR remaster

With Object-based HDR remaster, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures, and more realistic pictures.

Supreme resolution, whatever you’re watching

Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sony’s unique features. Our Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate, twice as fast as the X1™ Extreme, precisely analyzes and processes data to enrich 4K4 pictures with real-world detail and texture. Even images filmed in 2K and Full HD are upscaled close to 4K by 4K X-Reality™ PRO using a unique 4K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimized by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real-world textures.

Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colors

By widening the color spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colors than a conventional television. It analyzes and processes data in every image to make colors even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.

Making fast-moving scenes bright and clear

With pictures created by millions of individually controlled pixels, everything is sharp and clear on OLED. And with our X-Motion Clarity™ technology, even fast action stays smooth and clear. Moving images are precisely controlled to minimize blur so that pictures remain true with less loss in brightness during high-speed scenes.

Beautiful colors from any angle

Watching TV from the sides is now as satisfying as from the center. Our self-illuminating OLED panel keeps colors consistent and true, wherever you’re watching.

Sound and picture in harmony—the screen is the speaker

By having the screen act as the speaker, sound and picture work perfectly together with sound coming from the right place on the screen for a more cinematic experience.

Sound from the screen, incredibly immersive

Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, the screen is the speaker. An innovative actuator behind the screen vibrates discreetly to create sound so what you hear comes from the place in the scene where the action is happening—dialog from characters, engine noise from a car.

Sound flows around you with Dolby Atmos®

Be surrounded by sound as if you are right there in the scene. With Dolby Atmos, sound comes from above as well as from the sides so you can hear objects moving overhead with more realism for a truly multi-dimensional experience.

Enjoy multidimensional sound with S-Force Front Surround

Hear sound as you would from a separate multi surround speaker. By upconverting inputs, S-Force Front Surround virtually reproduces a multi-surround speaker system within your TV so you can enjoy all the thrills of more immersive sound.

Clearly hear voices

With Voice Zoom, you can hear human speech clearly without having to turn up the volume—ideal for news bulletins and documentaries.

Supreme pictures and sound, whatever the environment

Sit back and enjoy the best possible viewing experience. Sony’s unique ambient optimization technology automatically adjusts picture and sound to your environment.

Brightness refined for your room

On conventional TVs, brightness stays the same regardless of light in a room, resulting in pictures that are too dark or bright. This 4K OLED TV includes an embedded light sensor that optimizes picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones, so you get the perfect view.

Sound tailored to your environment

Sound experience can change depending on your room environment. For example, curtains absorb sound, while objects in front of the TV can disturb the passage of sound, compromising the quality of what you hear. This 4K Ultra HD TV detects objects and reproduces sound that’s enhanced and optimized to your room.

One-slate design concept, incredibly thin

With our super-slim one-slate design, the screen meets the edge of the TV, immersing you in the picture without distraction.

See how our beautiful design immerses you in the action

Our slim and simple one-slate design keeps you focused on the screen while blending harmoniously in any room environment.

Narrow metal bezel

Keeps you focused on the picture, not the television.

Flexible Metal Blade Stand, soundbar-ready

The direction of this versatile stand can be adjusted so your TV display won’t disturb your viewing, even when used with a soundbar.

Cable clutter minimized

Cable holders keep wires neatly hidden so your television stays free of clutter and looks good from the front, the sides, and the back.

Easy access, easy living

With easy access to all your favorite content, services, and devices, our Android Smart TVs make life simpler.

Say what you want to watch

Find your favorite content faster than ever using the power of your voice. With Voice Search, there’s no more complicated navigation or tiresome typing — you just have to ask.

Over 5,000 apps, more than any other smart TV

Sony’s Android Smart TV has an unbeatable number of apps. Choose the ones that make your life more fun and entertaining.

No more waiting

Apps start fast and there’s no more waiting when you switch between apps—Netflix starts 3x faster than before.
