Sony is ready to release its latest 2019 TV line. The company has detailed pricing and availability for the sets. The 8K-capable Master Series Z9G will start at $13,000 for an 85-inch model when the series arrives in June. The company will offer a 98-inch advanced model at $70,000. It is more affordable than Samsung’s $100,000 Q900 and makes the Z9G virtually inaccessible for anyone. But wealthy buyers insist on the best and don’t mind that 8K content is still very rare. There are a number of sets if you are willing to settle for 4K.
The Master Series A9G OLED line is priced higher compared to the last year’s A8F models. Its starting price was at $3,500 for the 55-inch version and a high price at $8,000 for the 77-inch edition. It is important that it is still expensive and you are getting a similar Picture Processor X1 Ultimate chip as the Z9G as well as Sony-wide perks like Netflix Calibrated Mode, IMAX Enhanced and eventual AirPlay 2, and HomeKit support for Apple-centric households. The A9G range will be available in the month of May or June, beginning with the 55-inch.
The A8G isn’t as flashy with only a 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme chip. It still has common Sony OLED tricks like Acoustic Surface Audio at a relatively low $2,500 for a 55-inch set and $3,500 for its 65-inch variant. Both TVs will appear in the month of May. If you’re happy to live with an LED-lit 4K LCD, you’ll have plenty of options. The X950G includes the X1 Ultimate and will sell for between $1,400 in its 55-inch form and $5,000 for an 85-inch beast. It will be available at the end of April. The 85-inch X850G uses a plainer processor and forgoes extras like IMAX Enhanced support in return for a more accessible and it will be available at $3,500.
