Exquisite contrast, perfect blacks

Sony’s OLED TV is like nothing you’ve ever seen before with truly exceptional black, shadow and colour. Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the X1 Extreme processor creating exquisite, unprecedented contrast.

Pure black, perfect vision

Our OLED pixels work individually and can be turned off completely to deliver absolute black. This level of supreme contrast reveals detail, depth, textures, and colours for a view that is stunningly real.

Uncover the detail with 4K HDR

High Dynamic Range (HDR) will change the way you look at TV. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution¹, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, colour and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats². The result is the most lifelike picture TVs have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail.

Everything should look like 4K HDR

Our newly developed 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme outperforms our conventional 4K Processor X1 with 40% more real-time image processing power. It takes everything you watch and improves it to near 4K HDR quality¹. 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 revolution in TV sound

Unlike most TV speakers, sound comes to you from the entire screen, immersing you in exciting new entertainment experiences. You get pictures and sound in perfect harmony.

Vibrant colours, smooth gradations

Only when surrounded by true black do colours seem really vibrant. Colours are as rich and vivid as nature’s own thanks to the TRILUMINOS™ Display with more shades of red, green and blue than ever before. You’ll enjoy rich, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. And, 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping reveals thousands of shades and gradations of light, for sunsets as bright and clear as real life.

360 degrees of sophistication

No distractions. This OLED TV is more than just beautiful. It’s designed so that the stand and speakers virtually disappear—appearing as if it’s floating—leaving only the brilliance of its picture. The screen is edged with a slim 4-side frame that maximizes the viewing area.

A genius TV, a smarter home

Find all the entertainment you can dream of, faster than ever. From movies and TV shows to thousands of apps, Sony’s Android™ TV brings you everything in an instant³. Cast your favourite apps with Google Cast, and Voice Search helps you find the entertainment you want. And with Google Home compatibility, simply voice-control your TV and ask it to do things, like play your favourite YouTube videos.

Upscale to a more natural picture

The difference is clear. You’ll see lifelike detail and stunning clarity, no matter what you’re watching. Two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving images in real time. 4K X-Reality PRO™ upscales images to near 4K clarity while a second database cleans the picture and reduce on-screen noise¹. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by the powerful 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme.

Motionflow™ keeps the action smooth 

TV that keeps up with real life. Sony’s refresh rate technology enhances the OLED’s unique panel speed to allow fast moving action sequences in sports and movies to be seen with lifelike clarity.

Maximize the viewing area

The screen is edged with a slim 4-sided frame that maximizes the viewing area.

Just say what you want

Spend less time browsing, and more time watching. Voice search on Android TV™ provides you with the power of Google search in 42 languages, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time-consuming text entry.

Send to a bigger, better screen with Google Cast™

Send movies and music from your smartphone to your TV with Google Cast™. Use your phone as a remote control³.

Your favourite apps, on your TV

Enjoy a huge range of apps from Google Play™, including YouTube™, Netflix, Amazon Video, and more. Also, play your favourite Android games on the big screen³.

Clean rear look

Keep wires out of sight, thanks to a hidden cable panel structure, for a clean look.
