The Japanese company definitely made a splash in 2017 when it launched its first-ever range of 4K OLED TVs. The premium A1 series set the standard for 4K OLED picture quality and picked up a number of five-star rating and awards trophies. This year, Sony has made quite a few enhancements.

Thanks to its proprietary innovation as well as its picture processing expertise the A8F series’ 4K HDR picture quality have been refined – lending precise control of the 8 million OLED pixels. You can expect deeper blacks, rich and life-like colours and an exceptionally wide viewing angle.
The A8F series is available in 65 inches and 55 inches sizes and features all of the same technology found in the A1. You get the same OLED panel, the same 4K HDR X1 Extreme processor powering the picture, and support for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision.
It even features Sony’s Acoustic Surface technology (say goodbye to external audio speakers), where actuators placed behind the glass screen emits a rich vibrating audio, making any blockbuster an immersive experience. Other essential perks include Chromecast, Google Play and Android TV.
The only difference: design. Compared with the A1’s “standless” easel-like aesthetics with a tilted screen, the A8F features a more conventional rectangular stand which sits on the screen upright. That should make it easier to fit on most TV racks!
