Sony releases pricing and availability info on its 2020 8K and 4K TVs
Sony has outlined its premium 2020 TV line-up in terms of price and availability. It ranges from the X800H 4K HDR LED range through new BRAVIA models to the top-end Z8H 8K HDR SKUs. The latter are equipped with a Picture Processor X1, which handles the reproduction of native 8K content (when accessible) as well as the up-scaling of 4K or FHD to nearly the same using the OEM's X-Reality™ PRO technology.
Sony has also endowed the Z8H sub-series with more own-branded specs such as its TRILUMINOS Display and X-tended Dynamic Range PRO for 8K. These TVs also have Frame Tweeters enhanced with Acoustic Multi-Audio. They come in 75-inch or 85-inch classes, which now have guide-prices of US$6999.99 and $9999.99 respectively.
These Z8Hs are not available until the summer of 2020, however, whereas some other new Sony TVs will be available sooner. They include the A8H BRAVIA OLED 4K units, which also have the X1 processor as well as X-Motion Clarity and Acoustic Multi-Audio, which supports 2.1 channel sound that emanates from the display itself. They come in 55- or 65-inch options priced at between $2299.99 and $3099.99, and can be pre-ordered now.
There are also X950H, X900H and X800H 4K HDR LED TVs, which also have many of the same sophisticated Sony qualities, a 4K HDR variant of the new big-screen processor included. They are also, like the rest of the 2020 series, Android TVs that support Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Airplay 2.
