Rather disappointing on the FALD front.

Where is the XF93?

The new XF90 has been given a silly stand.

Ah well, there’s always next year.

Given these also use the X1 Extreme Processors as 2017 does that mean the 2017 XE93 and XE94 will also support Dolby Atmos?

I've always been a bit confused with Dolby Atmos Support on these models.

Yeahs its ugly as a sin and will sure put off may potential buyer. Why in the right mind designed that?

We'll be getting a look at the Sony stand tomorrow and there's a special demo later in the week that is embargoed, so I expect there are more models to come. We'll get a look at their full UK line-up in early February.

Is Sony (and LG and others) using same OLED-panels as last year models ?
At the moment, to me, it's looking like LG has been using and distributing the same panel from 2016 and onwards
I hope not and more detail will come out but so far nothing to say otherwise

I supposed at least it has the X1 Extreme Processor, so Dolby Vision (soonTM) which I miss out on, not sure its worth upgrading from the XE90 though and I agree, the stand is dreadful.

Yeh, this has to be my biggest issue with the TV, the sluggishness of Android TV, and how poorly supported it is for Apps, No BBC iPlayer 4K/HLG, and No Youtube HDR etc.

All the reviews I read seems to suggest the XE90 was fine with Android, it seems without an internet connection it is (as HDTVtest suggest) but most of us need it connected.......

Will these new TVs mean the death of support of the 2017 models? (which has not been stellar as it is)

Thank you Steve. Kindly check the below
1. How many zones at 55 and 65
2. Peak brightness for lcd and oled (+abl improvement?)
3. X motion? Marketing blurb ?
4. If they buffed up the memory for OS (I hope they haven’t been THAT lazy
5. Do you think vrr is available for all or just Samsung so far.

Sorry for all the questions but trying to work out the improvements if any.

Note: i am not too bothered with lcd stand as they did it to accommodate the new soundbar clearly...

Where are ZD9/XE93/94 updates? So far, a very disappointing showing from Sony.
Next Month, at least that was said.

Just looked at the video the new A8F OLED model with its stand look better and stand straight than the A1, which is still the flagship model and as a result will continue for 2018.

DV for for the new OLED A8F is via future firmware, rather than out of the box. Very disappointing that they can't ship this model with DV but 2017 Sony owners are still waiting for promised DV update in 2018!:p

Very underwhelming and just confirms my intention to get an XE93. Now I'm wondering if supplies of the XE will actually dry up soon as everyone grabs one.

Looks like the XF90 is the replacement for both the XE93 and XE90, maybe they're consolidating?

It is a poor showing though - I'm getting the impression that all the big manufacturers are running out of ideas now and thus adding pointless gimmicks like Google Assistant or integration with Alexa etc.

It is daft that Sony's flagship LCD remains the two year old ZD9.

I was really hoping Sony would include a second tier 'bog standard' OLED as part of the range... without the acoustic surface and on a more traditional stand, but still with all the processing etc.

Like many I already have a solution for the audio, so would resent paying extra for cutting edge tech which I would never use.

Maybe they will announce something in February....

Yeah, nothing too exciting here which is disappointing as I had high hopes for Sony this year.

Maybe they are watching to see what LG do first... I could see why they might want to hold back their big guns (CLED ?) until such time as the ZD9 is no longer competitive in picture quality terms.

With OLED panel development quite mature now, there's seemingly little left in the nits tank for LG.

So I think we'l be stuck between OLED and FALD LCD for a few years now. (I don't believe Samsung after the QLED marketing bull!)

Steve,

Be interested to know if any developments on Dolby vision update on their projector range, specifically the vw760. Will they have projectors at show?
