Exquisite Contrast, Deep Black, and Vibrant Color

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. This level of supreme contrast reveals detail, depth, textures, and colors for a view that is stunningly real. 

Experience More Natural Picture with 4K X-Reality PRO

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. 

See Big Picture with 4K HDR, IMAX Enhanced and Dolby Vision

High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture is the way TV was always meant to be watched. 4K Ultra HD resolution and HDR video content combine to bring dazzling detail, color and contrast to everything you watch, while keeping a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. IMAX Enhanced makes movies feel larger than life. Dolby Vision brings scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colors. Whichever format you choose, Sony TVs deliver picture-perfect reality, creating an immersive and engaging cinematic experience. 

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. It’s picture and sound in perfect harmony. 

TRILUMINOS Display & 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping Deliver Smooth and Vibrant Colors

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 looks beautiful wherever the TV may rest. Wall mount the TV using the optional ultra-slim mount, or use the innovative two-way reversible TV stand to either set the TV in a standard position, or raise the TV to fit a soundbar seamlessly underneath the screen. The speakers are hidden away from view, and unsightly wires are managed through the stand, leaving nothing but elegance from all angles. It’s beauty in simplicity of design. 

Motionflow XR 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. 

A Genius TV, A Smarter Home

Android TVs by Sony now have the Google Assistant built-in, making your life easier. Ask it to play your favorite movie, check the score of your favorite team, and control your TV and even your home. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help. 

Well-Connected to Your Smart Home

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. Apple HomeKit and Airplay 2 compatibility seamlessly integrates your iPhone, iPad, and Mac with your Sony TV for effortless smart home management and content streaming.

Beautiful Picture!
After having some bad luck w/ an LG (backlight array went out after 4 years), I found this TV. After comparing it to other LG and Samsung TVs, I decided that the picture on this Sony TV was sharper, more vivid and more realistic than the others. I am VERY happy w/ my decision.

Bravo for Bravia OLED
The absolute beauty of the OLED picture of the Sony Bravia attracted me (replaced my 11 year old 1080p Bravia)to buy it. Displaying photos taken with my Sony a6400 digital camera are breath taking. On the Sony Bravia TV.

I expect a lot when I buy Sony and they delivered.
I have had the TV for about 4 wks. I set it up myself and the video how to open the box was very helpful. The directions on what cables go where was easier than I thoug
The colors and contrast are just beautiful and from every direction. The number of apps is appreciated. I even connected an antenna to compliment cable.
