Could this be the KING of all TVs?
Sony is finally nearing the release of its 2019 TV line, and you’d better brace for impact if you’re hoping to buy one of its highest-end models. The company has detailed pricing and availability for the sets, and the 8K-capable Master Series Z9G will start at $13,000 for an 85-inch model when the series arrives in June, and a mind-numbing $70,000 for the 98-inch star attraction. While that’s more affordable than Samsung’s $100,000 Q900, it still makes the Z9G virtually inaccessible for anyone but wealthy viewers who insist on the best — and don’t mind that 8K content is still very rare, for that matter.
And 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 due in late April. The 85-inch X850G uses a plainer processor (the 4K HDR Processor X1) and forgoes extras like IMAX Enhanced support in return for a more accessible $3,500 price tag. And if you only need the basics, the X800G delivers 4K HDR starting at $650 for a 43-inch set and finishing with a $2,000 75-inch screen.
