The word about the first Sony TV models from 2019 is finally coming. Sony made its usual round of TV broadcasts what we wanted to see at CES 2019, the massive international technology exhibition that heralds the dawn of the tech industry's calendar year.
The headline is the new massive 8K Master Series Z9G / ZG9 model with 85 and 98 inch options.
This is just the device that makes headlines, as no one will really buy a 98-inch 8K TV. For the rest of the world, the new 4K Smart TVs, including additions to the Master and Bravia OLED series, as well as some mid-range sets will appeal.
While the show itself did not attract much attention, we will also be upgrading to last year's entry-level Full HD HDR, the WF66, for more modest budgets.
The range is good on a Sony 201
In the coming months there will certainly be more surprises and improvements. Here are all the Sony TVs we expect to see in 2019 – all in one place so you can get to know your Bravia from your elbow.
And do not worry, we will be updating this list shortly, so check all the latest announcements in all weeks.
Sony 2018 TV Technology
Buying a new TV is not always about the panel's quality – the Processor inside, telling the TV what to do is equally – if not more – important.
Sony's next-generation X1 Ultimate processor was first unveiled at CES 2018 and will feature both the high-end Master Series sets and the top-of-the-line 4K sets to be released this year Supply electricity.
Undoubtedly, the 8K set needs to beef up regular HD or 4K content to take advantage of all these 33 million pixels.
The A8G / AG8 OLED still carries the X1 Extreme of its predecessor – though the organic OLED display should be rich visuals regardless.
Finally, the X1 Extreme is now firmly anchored in Sony's mid-range sets, giving the X9500G / XG95 a sharper 4K and hopefully more.
Speaking of audio, Sony learns from Acoustic Surface Audio + technology Last year's OLED has shown strategically placed drivers across the entire chassis of the set to deliver a more powerful, yet compact sound in the face of growing Demand for integrated audio that can stand on its own.
The more high-end models launched in 2019 can then use Sony's sound-from-picture technology to broadcast audio exactly where its source appears on the screen. This means that when someone speaks, he actually comes out of his mouth. 19659008] Sony A9F OLED (2018) "class =" lazy-image lazy-image-loading lazyload optional-image "onerror =" this.parentNode.replaceChild (window.missingImage (), this) "sizes =" auto "data- normal = "https://vanilla.futurecdn.net/techradar/media/img/missing-image.svg" data-src = "https://cdn.mos.cms.futurecdn.net/s75FqpYJfvLGeezxcgNfJS-320-80. jpg "data-srcset =" https://cdn.mos.cms.futurecdn.net/s75FqpYJfvLGeezxcgNfJS-320-80.jpg 320w, https://cdn.mos.cms.futurecdn.net/s75FqpYJfvLGeezxcgNfJS-650-80. jpg 650w "data-sizes =" auto "data-original-mos =" https://cdn.mos.cms.futurecdn.net/s75FqpYJfvLGeezxcgNfJS.jpg "data-pin-media =" https: //cdn.mos. cms.futurecdn.net/s75FqpYJfvLGeezxcgNfJS.jpg"/>
Sony does not do that in particular They like to give information about the brightness i As usual, we expect the OLED offering to lag behind on this front: the organic LED film used in the panel emits on its own, so it does not have a large backlight to properly screw up the lumens.
However, the Z9G brings back the popular backlight Master Drive technology that Sony's Z Series has defined for the 2016 Z Series. For example, white LEDs can be used extremely precisely to set the brightness where it is needed. with sharpened contrast and minimal ble in surrounding dimming zones.
This makes the set thicker and heavier, but if you buy an 85 or 98-inch set, the seat is probably not a problem.
All Sony 4K sets share the Android TV platform and YouView. While Dolby Vision was limited to the X900F and Master Series sets last year, thankfully, this is a trickle and will come to all four of the four sets listed below – and it seems Sony has the Dolby video format over its rival HDR10 + tracked.
Google Assistant has since been rolled out to all 4K HDR TVs from Sony in the UK and Europe (albeit one year after the US), and enables hands-free voice control.
