Sony wants to be one of the first manufacturers to put its 2018 TVs on the market. Some prices of its new models are already being known and they are already appearing on its official website. Today it is the turn of the mid-range and entry-level models. Specifically we talk about the Sony XF80, XF75, WF6 and RF4 . The first two are 4K televisions with HDR and Android TV system. The other two are very simple televisions, with Full HD resolution and without Android TV. Let's go over the details of the new Sony TVs.
Sony XF80 and XF75
In the highest range of LED TVs this year we have the new Sony XF90 and XF85, of which we have already spoken in One Expert. Just below are the Sony XF80 and Sony XF75 . These are LCD televisions with Edge LED lighting, 4K resolution, compatible with HDR and with Android TV system.
Both models equip the 4K X-Reality PRO processor , while the Triluminos system is reserved only for the Sony XF80. The latter, despite maintaining the Triluminos panel, loses the FALD type lighting, a key feature to achieve a more impressive image. The double tuner is also lost.
On the other hand, both have Android TV as an operating system , with the Chromecast protocol integrated. They also have advanced voice control, with which you can launch applications or go directly to certain content just by saying it.
At the design level, the Sony XF80 has a thin aluminum frame that gives the screen all the prominence . Its base is also quite discreet and includes a system that hides the cables.
Its little brother has a slim aluminum-effect frame . This is somewhat thicker than in the top model, but it also leaves all the prominence to the panel.
As for the support, it has two legs located in the central area. And, as is usual with Sony televisions, they also take care of ordering the wiring and leaving it hidden so that it cannot be seen from the front .
The company hasn't provided an exact launch date, but they shouldn't take long to hit the market. As for prices, the Sony XF80 will be available in 43, 49 and 55 inches, with prices of 1,000 euros, 1,200 euros and 1,300 euros respectively . Pricing for the Sony XF75 has yet to be revealed.
Sony WF6 and RF4
The Japanese manufacturer has also thought of users who are only looking for a television to watch DTT or play the console . For this type of user, it has also renewed its lower range with new products.
The Sony WF6 and Sony RF4 offer a panel with Full HD resolution and, curiously, with an HDR system . It is clear that Sony seeks to seduce gamers with a PS4 Slim or Xbox One S.
On the other hand, both feature X-Reality PRO processing . And, although they do not include an Android system, the Sony WF6 does have access to YouTube .
In addition, both offer the Smart Plug & Play system . This allows us to connect our smartphone or a USB drive to the TV. So we can easily share videos, photos and music files from various devices.
At the moment the prices of either model have not been revealed . However, like the rest of the models, they already appear on the Sony website, so they should not take long to reach the market.
