This Sony is the 85-inch 4k super screen we’ve all been waiting for

Sony has launched a high specification 85-inch 4k super screen TV, priced at just £2,499. The XH80 model is the largest in its 2020 4k TV fleet.

Despite its size, the set adopts a slick minimalist design, with blade stand and hairline finish bezel.

Image quality is driven by the brand’s 4K HDR X1 processor, noted for its extreme fine detail and natural textures. HDR support includes Dolby Vision dynamic HDR. HD to 4k upscaling uses Sony’s object-based HDR remaster technology

This big screen set is perfect for cinematic bingeing of Netflix and Amazon Prime, both of which are built in.

This jaw-dropping model uses the brand’s highly regarded 4K HDR X1 processor for outstanding image quality…

If 85-inches is just a tad too big for your pad, then the XH80 is also available in 43-, 49-, 55-, 65- (pictured above) and 75-inch versions priced at £649, £749, £949, £1099 and £1899.

The stablemate XH81, with slightly different cosmetic design, is available in 43-, 49-, 55- and 65-inch screen sizes priced at £699, £799, £999 and £1199 respectively. 

Both the X80H and XH81 models (55-inch and up) sound as good as they look, because they incorporate a newly-developed X-Balanced speaker for superior audio; the sets also have Dolby Atmos 3D audio support, as found on Blu-ray discs, Sky and BT TV broadcasts and streaming video services.

The new TVs use the Android smart platform, and have Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in. There’s also Amazon Alexa and AirPlay 2 support.

These XH80 and XH81 models will come in under its flagship line, the XH95 range.
