Most of the features found on the ZD9 and even a few new ones but without the price tag

  • Sony will keep the ZD9 as their flagship LED LCD TV for the third year in a row, which is unusual these days. However they will also be releasing a new LED LCD TV for 2018 in the shape of the BRAVIA XF9005. This new model will include the X1 Extreme processor, unlike last year's XE9005, which means that it can also be upgraded to Dolby Vision, although that won't be until later in the year. The XF9005 uses a full array backlight with local dimming but now includes X-Motion Clarity which combines black frame insertion with the backlight to deliver smoother motion without adversely affecting the overall brightness of the screen. The XF9005 will also include Sony's usual minimalist styling and a stand comprised of two feet, along with the Android Smart TV platform. It will be available in April in screen sizes of 49-inces (KD-49XF9005), 55-inches (KD-55XF9005), 65-inches (KD-65XF9005) and 75-inches (KD-75XF9005). The KD-65XF9005 will offer the promise of a large screen direct LED backlight and the X1 Extreme processor at a more competitive price point when compared to the flagship ZD9.
