Sony has recently announced a slew of new Android TVs at the CES 2019. The number of new products can be overwhelming but at least we have a lot of choices. Sony is currently showcasing the A9G 4K OLED TVs and the MASTER Series Z9G 8K LCD TVs. These two series both promise premium picture quality for homeowners who always want the best in home entertainment. Starting with the Sony MASTER TVs, the series boasts of being enhanced for IMAX and calibrated from Netflix.
Sony MASTER Series Z9G
The MASTER Series Z9G 8K LCD TVs uses the Picture Processor X1TM Ultimate to achieve the 8K display with impressive detail and contrast. For audio, there’s the Sound-from-Picture Reality feature.
The Sony MASTER Series Z9G is available in two sizes: 98-inches and 85-inches. They are super-large screen TVs with the combination of 4K and 8K. While other OEMs are only pushing for 4K, Sony is already able to deliver 8K resolution. If HD is good enough for you, imagine this 16x HD or four times the 4K quality. In numbers, 8K handles up to 33 million pixels.
The lower-specced offering is the Sony A9G Premium OLED TV which is available in three sizes: 55-, 65-, and 77-inches. This smart TV is more stunning with its very slim factor and super-wide viewing angle.
This model also uses the brand’s Picture Processor X1TM Ultimate and Pixel Contrast Booster for enhanced SD and HD content. For audio, there’s the Acoustic Surface Audio+ technology allowing an immersive sound experience.
The smart home experience can change with this product’s TV Center Speaker. Other special features include 4K clarity, High Dynamic Range (HDR) color and detail, IMAX Enhanced and Dolby Vision/Dolby Atmos, Netflix Calibrated Mode, and of course, Android TV support. Android TV compatibility lets you download media apps from the Google Play Store like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Video among others.
Sony also announced the A8G Series (65”and 55” models) BRAVIA OLED 4K TVs and the X950G Series (85”, 75”, 65” and 55” models) 4K TVs.
No information on exact availability and pricing but they will be out in Spring.
