Product Information

Experience an ultra-realistic image with the power of OLED technology. The powerful Picture Processor X1 Ultimate utilizes over 8 million individual pixels to create an image with exquisite contrast and vibrant color. Pixel Contrast Booster supercharges each pixel to deliver incredible picture quality.

Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, bringing the best out of OLED beauty.

With unmatched processing power, the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate analyzes content to bring out OLEDs intense contrast with pure blacks, peak brightness and natural colors. Object-based HDR remastering happens in real time to detect hundreds of individual objects on-screen and intelligently upscale everything you see to near-4K HDR quality so everything you watch is clear, bright, and incredibly realistic.

 

Boosting OLED color and contrast for extra depth and realism

Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate and supercharged via the Pixel Contrast Booster to enhance color and contrast 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.

 

Acoustic Surface Audio

Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, sound comes to you from the entire screen, creating an immersive multi-dimensional audio experience. It’s picture and sound in perfect harmony. With a subwoofer integrated into the rear of the TV, you’ll hear more dynamic, bass-heavy sound – ideal for action movies and music

 

Watch what you love, control it with your voice

Sony’s Android TV with the Google Assistant provides a smarter viewing experience. Easily search and watch your favorite movies, get answers on screen like sports scores or weather updates, control your TV and even your home - all with your voice. Just start with pressing the Google Assistant button on your remote to ask it questions, control smart home devices or access many of the apps and services you already use every day. In addition, cast your favorite apps with Chromecast built-in, or enjoy a huge range of apps from Google Play, including YouTube, Netflix, Prime Video, Spotify, and more.

 

Supreme resolution, whatever you're watching

Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sony’s unique 4K X-Reality PRO and Object-Based Super Resolution. Our Picture Processor X1 Ultimate precisely analyses and processes data to enrich pictures with lifelike detail, textures, and clarity in everything you watch. Leveraging intelligent dual database processing, content looks cleaner with less on-screen noise. Even images filmed in Full HD are upscaled close to 4K resolution by 4K X-Reality PRO. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by Sony’s Picture Processor X1 Ultimate.

 

TRILUMINOS Display, bringing you all the world’s colors

By widening the color spectrum, TRILUMINOS Display, powered by the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, 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. See exactly what the creator intended with the advanced color, light, and gradation of the TRILUMINOS Display.

 

Bright and clear motion

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.

 

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. An embedded light sensor optimizes picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones, so you get the perfect view. For uncompromised sound, Acoustic Auto Calibration analyzes the room's environment and reproduces sound that's enhanced and optimized to your room.

 

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 support seamlessly integrate your iPhone and Siri devices with your Sony TV for effortless smart home management and content streaming.

 

See the big picture with HDR, Dolby Visions, IMAX Enhanced and Netflix Calibrated Mode

High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture is the way TV was always meant to be watched. Ultra-high 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. Dolby Vision brings scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colors. The IMAX Enhanced program brings the immersive entertainment experience into the home. IMAX Enhanced content is digitally remastered to provide sharper images and more powerful sound—just as the creator intended. Netflix Calibrated Mode was specially developed to enjoy Netflix original content and reproduce picture quality as brilliant as the studio evaluation monitor, faithfully reproducing the creator's intent and vision. Whichever format, Sony TVs deliver picture-perfect reality, creating an immersive and engaging cinematic experience.

 

Incredibly thin one-slate design

With our super-slim one-slate design, the screen meets the edge of the TV, blending harmoniously in any room environment. The flush surface with narrow aluminum bezel keeps you focused on the picture, not the television. Cable holders keep wires neatly hidden, so your television stays free of clutter and looks good from any angle.

 

Premium metal stand, ready for soundbars

Our flexible low profile design provides a distraction-free experience, or the stand can be adjusted to raise the TV to fit a soundbar seamlessly.

 

Mount your Sony TV like a work of art

Make the most of your living space. The SU-WL855 ultra-slim wall-mount bracket is designed to hang select Sony BRAVIA OLED and LED TVs flush to the wall, just like any other work of art. Pull out your TV and swivel it left to right to adjust the screen angle for optimal viewing.

 

Experience content as the director envisioned

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 envisioned.

 

High-performance calibration for professionals

Sony TVs receive high-performance calibration that has never previously been possible using CalMAN software. It allows adjustments to be made with finer precision than conventional picture quality settings to meet the strict requirements of creators in the post-production stage. Colors are reproduced with maximum fidelity to the original TV signal, giving exceptional picture control for a TV. CalMAN also features an easy-to-use interface that has been well received by calibration specialists.

Good deal at great price
Got the TV for $1299. A great deal at the time. I love the TV. My only issue is I can't screen mirror with my Samsung Note 20. Both use Android OS, and this was actually a selling point for me to watch certain apps that can't be chromecast or downloaded to TV. I've also had to perform a hard reset 2 months into using. Hopefully these issues will be resolved or not continue.

Awesome picture
I love the picture quality especially if you are watching 4K shows. Only thing I notice is if you reduce the brightness the quality is noticeably reduced on less than 4K shows. Other than that my sound went out a couple times where I had to unplug and wait the first time then I found out I can reset by holding the power button on the remote which worked too. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase but would not buy at full price (Black Friday sale at Best Buy).

Early issues
I had this TV installed two weeks ago and have experienced software issues on the apps. Three days in a row the apps have no sound or no sound and the picture jumps from place to place. Each time I've had to hold the power button to reset the television. Yesterday the power wouldn't come on , so I had to pull out the plug and reboot the television. I called Best Buy and said neither they nor Sony is responsible for ant of the apps that are included on their televisions. I asked if they could exchange this set for the exact same model and was told no at Best Buy. I purchased it during their Holiday Sale Period, but due to COVID precautions by me, I didn't have it delivered until two weeks ago. Not a reaction I figured to get from Best Buy or from an $1,800 SONY TV.

The TV has been great. Since my order model was so old, we didn't know what we were missing. I recommend this model.
