Alex Alderson,

Sony has announced the XH90, its new 4K and HDR TV series. Pitched as mid-range TVs, Sony will be offering the XH90 series in 55-inch, 65-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch screen sizes. All models will be based on Sony's 4K HDR Processor X1, which the company claims reproduces more depth, textures and natural colours than past processors.

Additionally, the XH90 TVs incorporate Sony’s full-array local dimming and boosting technology, which dynamically changes light levels in sections of the screen depending on the content being displayed. Moreover, the XH90 series will support 120 FPS gaming, which Sony claims will be "ready for next-generation consoles". This feature will be enabled via a software update.

Running on Android TV, the XH90 series features Netflix Calibrated Mode, which has been developed for Netflix originals. According to Sony, this mode can "reproduce the same picture quality on a TV as on a studio evaluation master". Not only does the XH90 series support Google Assistant, but it also supports Amazon Alexa, Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple HomeKit.

The Sony XH90 series will be available to purchase in the UK and Europe by the end of May.
