Sony Unveiled First Two 2019 TV Models

The year 2017 was probably one of the biggest years for the Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation, the Sony Corporation. The year marked the company’s return to the OLED market with the Sony Bravia A1E after its long absence from the said market. Now, 2018 marks another big year for the company. Unveiling their first two TV models in its upcoming 2018 lineup of TVs during Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018.

First up is the flagship Sony Bravia AF8(or “A8F” in UK). The AF8 is an OLED TV that boasts a quite similar specification and features to the Sony Bravia A1E, but one noticeable difference is that the AF8 features a centred traditional stand.

Second is the Sony Bravia X900F(or XF90 in UK). The X900F features LED-backlit LCD panels as well as X-tended Dynamic Range PRO 6x. Sony claims that the X900F has enhanced HDR and non-HDR content performance compared to 2017 models by boosting and dimming the backlight levels. Also, the TV also features X-Motion Clarity that smoothens fast-moving scenes with no loss in brightness.
