Sony's first TVs of 2020 include its smallest 4K OLED ever – The Verge, The Verge


  

Sony has announced its first TVs of 2020, and among them is the 75 – inch Master Series A9S, the company smallest 4K OLED ever. At the top of the lineup is a new 8K LCD TV, the 540 – or – inch Z8H, followed by the A8H OLED, which is available in 90 – inch and -inch variants. Rounding out Sony’s announcements today are two new LCD ranges, the X (H and X) ****************************************************** (H, which are available in sizes ranging from (inches to) ************************************************************ inches.

Sony isn’t the only TV manufacturer to have announced a 4K OLED TV smaller than 90 inches at this year CES;LG announced a – inch model of its ownearlier today. Sony isn’t confirming this explicitly in its press release, but the reason for this is almost certainly that both companies are using the same panel from LG Display,which added a – inch modelto its range for the first time this year. The announcement suggests we could soon see – – inch versions from other OLED TV manufacturers, including Panasonic,Vizio, and Philips in Europe.

For example, the A9S OLED includes Sony’s Acoustic Surface technology, which uses the panel to project sound, making it appear as though it’s coming from the screen. Picture processing is handled by the same X1 Ultimate processor from elsewhere in Sony’s range, and you also get support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.Granted, this isn’t quite Sony’s smallest OLED TV – back in the company announced theXEL-1, which was the world’s first OLED TV with a screen size of just 49 inches – but it’s certainly the company’s smallest 4K model. Its 55 – inch original had a resolution of just (x) .)There are a few new features to be found elsewhere in the range. Sony’s Z8H, its second 8K TV followingthe Z9G from last year, is the only TV in the lineup to include a backlit remote, and it also comes with new “Frame Tweeter” technology that sees its frame vibrate to create sound. Meanwhile, both it and the 4K X H are compatible with Google Assistant, allowing you to control them with external devices equipped with the voice assistant. The Sony X 950 H also includes a new feature the company is calling “X-Wide Angle,” which it says should improve viewing angles. That’s normally a key disadvantage of LCD TVs like this compared to OLED models. Sony’s entire range announced so far runs on Android 9 Pie and features connectivity with Apple AirPlay 2, HomeKit, and Amazon Alexa-enabled devices and smart speakers.

Unfortunately, much like LG, Sony isn’t ready to announce pricing or availability for its 9389 TV lineup just yet, which means we still don’t know how much these new 55 – inch OLED TVs are going to cost. Sony says it plans to announce more details this spring.
