Pictures and sound in perfect harmony

Be in the moment with true-to-life pictures and acoustics to match. Beautifully detailed images combine with our Sound-from-Picture Reality™ for a captivating audio-visual performance. 

4K HDR Processor X1™ Extreme: So real you can feel it

Our 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme™ includes powerful real-time image processing for ultra detailed pictures. Images are upscaled closer to true 4K HDR quality.

OLED TV

True reality comes to life with deep black and natural colour. Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme™. Sony's 4K OLED HDR TV creates exquisite, unprecedented contrast.

Acoustic Surface Audio™

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

Transform your viewing with Dolby Vision™

Bring scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colours. Dolby Vision™ is an HDR solution that creates an immersive, engaging cinematic experience in your home.

TRILUMINOS™ Display: Extra colours, extra brilliance

See vivid real world colours all around you. A TRILUMINOS™ Display maps from a wider palette, faithfully reproducing every shade and hue in the umbrellas.

Beautiful from any angle

A clean, minimalist design keeps you focused on what's important - the picture.

Ideal soundbar position

Rotate the stand 180° and it will rise up so you can easily display your soundbar. The stand blends harmoniously with the beautifully designed TV and doesn't compromise your viewing experience. 

Cables concealed, neat and tidy

Keep cables neatly hidden in the stand and held in place with the supplied cable holder.

Just talk, a fun way to explore new worlds

Find all the entertainment you can dream of, as fast as you can talk. With advanced voice control, this Sony Android TV™ lets you enjoy movies and shows from apps or broadcast in an instant.

Say what you want to see with voice search

Spend less time browsing, and more time watching. Voice search on Android TV™ provides you with the power of Google search, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time-consuming text entry. You can also get recommendations; asking for “romantic comedies” for example, brings up a list of suitable options. 

Connect with Google Home

Connect Google Home for seamless hands-free control of a Sony TV. With Google Home, you can find and cast your favourite videos to your Sony TV, without lifting a finger.

Object-based HDR remaster

With Object-based HDR remaster, the colour in individual objects on screen is analysed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures and more realistic pictures.

Super Bit Mapping HDR

There are thousands of tones, shades and gradations of light in a sunset. Super Bit Mapping HDR reveals them. It creates smooth, natural 4K TV picture quality as you watch, without the “banding” that can occur on other TVs.

Dual database processing

One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise. The other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.

Rediscover the detail with 4K X-Reality™ PRO

With 4K X-Reality™ PRO, every image is upscaled closer to true 4K quality for remarkable clarity. Images are sharpened and refined in real time, revealing extra detail in the books and architecture of the library.

Motionflow™ XR keeps the action smooth

Enjoy smooth and sharp details even in fast-moving sequences with Motionflow™ XR. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones. It compares key visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of missing action in the sequences. Some models also include black-frame insertion for a blur-free and truly cinematic look.

Chromecast built-in: Plays nice with your other devices

BRAVIA™ is Chromecast built-in so you can easily cast your favourite entertainment like YouTube™ or Netflix from your personal device on to the stunning BRAVIA™ screen. You can cast from Android™, iOS™, or your laptop.

Google Play™: A world of content and apps

Discover movies and TV shows, games and much more from Google Play™. Enjoy a huge and ever-growing choice of appson your TV in a brand new way.

Clear Phase for smooth, balanced frequencies

BRAVIA™ uses a powerful computer model to analyse and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response. It does this by ‘sampling’ the speaker frequency with higher precision. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker’s natural response – resulting in pure, natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.

Cinematic S-Force Front Surround

Enjoy an immersive soundstage that pulls you into the heart of the action. S-Force Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum – using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you’ll enjoy rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.

Bluetooth connectivity

Connect BLUETOOTH® compatible devices to your TV for easy wire free entertainment. Pair your Bluetooth headphones or earphones with BRAVIA and enjoy TV shows and music in your favourite place - without any disturbances or interruptions.

Turn your TV into a digital recorder: USB HDD REC

Store your favourite TV shows on an external USB hard disk drive to enjoy whenever you want. USB HDD REC allows one-touch and timer recording of a digital broadcast onto any USB HDD device up to 2TB in capacity. While viewing the show, simply press REC to start recording, which will automatically stop at the end of the programme.
