A faster way to the entertainment you love

Making color and contrast more real
Object-based HDR remaster
With Object-based HDR remaster, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed 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 small TV can reproduce greater depth, textures and more realistic pictures.
Supreme resolution, whatever you’re watching
Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K1 resolution with Sony's unique features. Our X1™ Ultimate, twice as fast as the X1™ Extreme, precisely analyzes and processes data to enrich 4K pictures with real-world detail and texture. Even images filmed in 2K and Full HD are upscaled close to 4K by 4K X-Reality™ PRO2 using a unique 4K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimized by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real-world textures.
Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colors
By widening the color spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colors than a conventional television. It analyzes and processes data in every image to make colors even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.

Sound and picture in harmony—the screen is the speaker
By having the screen act as the speaker, sound and picture work perfectly together with sound coming from the right place on the screen for a more cinematic experience.
Sound from the screen, incredibly immersive
Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, the screen is the speaker. An innovative actuator behind the screen vibrates discreetly to create sound so what you hear comes from the place in the scene where the action is happening—dialog from characters, engine noise from a car.
Sound flows around you with Dolby Atmos™
Be surrounded by sound as if you are right there in the scene. With Dolby Atmos, sound comes from above as well as from the sides so you can hear objects moving overhead with more realism for a truly multi-dimensional experience.
Enjoy multidimensional sound with S-Force Front Surround
Hear sound as you would from a separate multi surround speaker. By upconverting inputs, S-Force Front Surround virtually reproduces a multi-surround speaker system within your TV so you can enjoy all the thrills of more immersive sound.
Clearly hear voices
With Voice Zoom, you can hear human speech clearly without having to turn up the volume—ideal for news bulletins and documentaries.
Supreme picture quality and sound, whatever the environment
Sit back and enjoy the best possible viewing experience. Sony's unique ambient optimization technology automatically adjusts picture and sound to your environment.
Brightness refined for your room
On conventional TVs, brightness stays the same regardless of light in a room, resulting in pictures that are too dark or bright. This '4K OLED TV' includes an embedded light sensor that optimizes picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones, so you get the perfect view.
Sound tailored to your environment
Sound experience can change depending on your room environment. For example, curtains absorb sound, while objects in front of the TV can disturb the passage of sound, compromising the quality of what you hear. This 4K Ultra HD TV detects objects and reproduces sound that's enhanced and optimized to your room.
Minimalist design immerses you in the picture
Super-thin bezel keeps you focused on the screen for a truly immersive viewing experience. With its compact size, thin form and simple one-slate design, this TV harmonizes with your living room.11
One-slate design, no distractions
Our slim and simple one-slate design keeps you focused on the screen while blending harmoniously in any room environment.11
