Surprisingly Cheaper than Samsung’s 98-Inch Q900 8K TV
These Z9G 8K HDR TVs feature Sony’s X1 Ultimate processor inside. This has a “unique algorithm specially developed for 8K that can detect and analyze each object in the picture,” according to Sony. In addition, it features full-array local dimming via their Backlight Master Drive technology, and 8K X-tended Dynamic Range PRO.
It obviously does not come cheap. In fact, it will have a price tag of $69,999 USD. Which is surprisingly less than what Samsung is asking for with their Q900 98-inch 8K TV. Samsung’s offering costs $100,000 USD, so users are saving quite a bit with the Sony option. For that price, users are also getting Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support built-in (arriving later this year).
Are There Any Cheaper Options?
In case you don’t have $69,999 to spend, Sony’s slightly smaller 85-inch Z9G 8K HDR option is even more affordable. It has an MSRP of $12,999 and it features the same features as the 98-inch model, except for the larger panel size.
If your budget is well below five digits then you might want to spring for a 4K TV. Thankfully, Sony also has their A8G 4K OLED TV, as well as the X950G, X850 and X800 4K HDR TV.
The A8G 4K OLED is the higher end of these four and features Sony’s new 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme technology. This comprises of Object-based HDR remaster, 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping and dual database processing.
