Sony OLED 4K TV will be priced from $5,000; showcased at CES 2017
After displaying and garnering attention and positive response, Sony is all set to launch its OLED 4K HDR TVs in April this year. The unique and high-end televisions are going to be priced from $5,000, which means it is certainly going to make a hole in the buyer’s pocket.
The pre-order for the OLED 4K TV has already begun on Amazon and Best Buy. Apart from the unique viewing experience thanks to the OLED panel at the centre, the TV is claimed to come offering extra ordinary audio experience. Sony calls the technology Acoustic Surface sound system. The company claims, the viewers will feel like the sound is coming directly from the display itself rather than traditional speakers positioned at sides or below the screen. This way, it appears more realistic.
The Sony OLED 4K TV doesn’t get any conventional stand attachable to the bottom of the model. Instead it gets back mounted easel, which comes with a subwoofer and all the ports and cable management system. There are specifically four HDMI ports to be mentioned. The easel can be folded against the TV when the model is mounted on wall.
The TV will offer usual Android TV experience to the viewers in terms of the software. But there is the Google Assistant added on top to search things quicker. Specification wise, the Sony A1E OLED TV will be available in both 55-inch and 65-inch display size options. Apart from that, a bigger and better 77-inch model is also on card, but that will come later.
Speaking about the technologies the Sony A1E OLED TV series will support Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG. The OLED panel is sourced from LG, but the company claims, its television sets are very different than LG OLED sets. The biggest difference is made by the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme’ processing engine, demonstrated by the brand at the CES 2017.
