Exquisite Contrast, Perfect Blacks

Sony’s OLED TV is 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.

Pure Black, Perfect Vision

Sony's OLED pixels work individually and can be turned off completely to deliver absolute black. This level of supreme contrast reveals detail, depth, textures, and colors 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 resolution, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, color, and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. The result is the most life-like picture TVs have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail.

Everything Should Look Like 4K HDR

Sony's newly developed 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme outperforms their conventional 4K Processor X1 with 40% more real-time image processing power. It takes everything you watch and improves it to near 4K HDR quality. 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

Innovative Acoustic Surface technology brings a unique, enhanced viewing experience. Unlike most TV speakers, sound comes to you from the entire screen, immersing you in exciting new entertainment experiences.

Vibrant Colors, Smooth Gradations

Only when surrounded by true black do colors seem really vibrant. Colors 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.

A Design of Sophistication

A design that’s a work of art. The all-new one slate design is curated to look 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. The TV has no visible speakers, and unsightly wires are managed through stand, leaving nothing but elegance from all angles.

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 instant. Cast your favorite apps with Google Cast, and Voice Search helps you find the entertainment you want. And with Google Home and Amazon Alexa compatibility, simply voice-control your TV and ask it to do things like cast and control videos from YouTube with Google Home or change the channel or volume with Amazon Alexa.

Upscale to a More Natural Picture

The difference is clear. You’ll see life-like 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 noise. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by the powerful 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme.

Meet Your Google Assistant

Sony TVs equipped with Android TV now have Google Assistant built-in, making your life easier. Ask it questions, connect to smart home devices like Nest, or access many of the apps and services you already use every day. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help.

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 life-like clarity.

Great Picture From Any Angle

Thanks to the OLED display’s unique panel characteristics, picture looks great from anywhere you’re watching. Content looks amazing whether you’re directly in front of the TV, or off to one side or the other.

Live TV, No Annual Contract

PlayStation Vue is now available on Android TV. Enjoy live TV streaming with no annual contract and no surprise fees. Experience premium content, including sports, news and more, from your favorite networks.

Your Favorite Apps, On Your TV

Amazing TV
Was going to go with QLED but this tv is by far the best picture I’ve seen. Great wire management and has a bonus with the google assistant built in.

Better than Movie Theater with 4K
In addition to the expected new dimension of picture quality, the full screen sound system is like a live stage production where the characters speak directly to you.

Great contrast and eye popping color
Watching an Sony Oled is a totally different experience than watching an led. The picture is sharper because of the single pixel control. I watch an original episode of Star Trek on Netflix and it never looked better. The roots band on Jimmy Fallon show instruments crome was brilliant. Best picture ever.

Amazing
The picture quality is outstanding and the user interface and apps are excellent. There are only three issues that I hope Sony will address in the near future.
1. The Closed Caption button on the remote doesn't work when the source is "Set Top Box".
2. Amazon's 4k content is not available in the Amazon App.
3. The remote is complex and very rich in user interface features but hard to figure out with limited instructions.

TV is expensive but worth every penny.

Very nice dark colors and great sound.
Had this tv about two/three months. Initially selected this model but purchased 930 e instead. Kept it one day and decided on the 55 OLED. So the first unit was installed and then the OLED with no problems. Right now I would surmise the better unit is the OLED. Love the dark and rich colors and the new flat base. The screen sound is great and clear. Little adjustment was necessary during the setup.

I have built a top of the line PC for myself and this TV still out performs anything my PC can put out. The quality in the image is so good my parents (60+) actually appreciated how clear it is to watch old shows. Absolutely worth it

Beautiful picture and great sound. Only complaint is very few directions in booklet. Have trouble tuning the HDR to my liking on netflix. Beautiful picture in HD with the right Comcast cable box.

Super picture quality
My husband purchased this tv set about 3 weeks ago and we love it but we have not figured out a way to save the audio settings. We listen to music and adjust the settings but when we shut the tv set for the night, we have to reset the settings again when we turn it on the next day. There must be a way to save the new settings! I also hate having to use 2 remotes!
