Sony last month unveiled some amazing products including, new mid-range devices, headphones, speakers and an impressive lineup of 4k HDR UHD TV’s at Consumer Electronic Show (CES). Though Sony did not reveal the pricing details of its 4K HDR Ultra HD TVs, Now the Japanese Tech Giant has announced updated Android TV Models along with Google Assistant integration.
The X900F and X850F series of 4K HDR Ultra HD TVs are both premium models with sizes ranging from 55”, 65”, and 75” variants. Since last few months, Sony has been working on updating all of its 4K HDR television to support Google Assistants.
The X900F series features the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme, producing powerful real-time image processing for ultra-detailed pictures. The X1 Extreme provides the ultimate 4K HDR viewing experience by incorporating three technologies that improve picture quality, no matter what the content source: Object-based HDR remaster, Super Bit Mapping™ 4K HDR and Dual database processing.
X-tended Dynamic Range PRO 6x technology ensures dark scenes are darker and bright scenes brighter with up to six times the contrast of conventional LED TVs, delivering beautiful night shots full of dazzling lights and deeper blacks. Sony’s newest technology, X-Motion Clarity, helps keep fast action smooth and clear with images precisely controlled to minimize blur with no loss in brightness, perfect for sports and high-speed scenes, particularly in larger screen sizes.
A TRILUMINOS Display maps colors from a wider palette, faithfully reproducing every shade and hue to provide real-world colors. The X900F 4K HDR Ultra HD TVs will support Dolby Vision via a firmware update to be delivered later this year.
The X850F series features the 4K HDR Processor X1, which together with 4K X-Reality PRO up-scales Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) content to near 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) quality, while HDR content is displayed in stunning clarity, color, and contrast. Object-based HDR Remaster technology can detect, analyze and optimize each object in the picture individually to adjust the overall contrast for a more natural and realistic picture on the screen.
A TRILUMINOS Display provides colors as vivid as nature’s own with rich, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. And, 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping reveals thousands of shades and gradations of light, for sunsets as bright and clear as real life.
Sony’s Android TV enables viewers to enjoy a huge range of apps from Google Play, including YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, Pandora and more. Google Assistant on Sony’s Android TV works just by pushing the microphone button on the remote and using your voice to ask a question or say a command. This allows users to seamlessly playback or search for content, play music or stream photos, or control some smart home devices through their Sony TV. Furthermore, Sony’s Android TV works with popular smart speakers such as Sony’s own LF-S50G, Google Home or Amazon Alexa.
