Sony, with the latest launch of the Bravia X9000F has made an advancement to its LED TV Range in India. The Bravia X9000F sports 4K HDR Panel and comes with Dolby Vision technology to provide a top-notch audio-visual experience. Although the company hasn’t revealed the prices of all the models of these series, we are sure that there are going to be three models to the Bravia X9000F which are – firstly, the 55-inch KD-55X9000F which is already in the markets and has started selling for Rs 2,39,000 at all Sony Center and electronic stores across the country. The rest two models are the 65-inch KD-65X9000F model and the 85-inch KD-85X9000F which haven’t yet arrived in the stores.
Moving on to the features of these new TVs by Sony, all the Bravia X9000F come with a TRILUMINOS display that claims to deliver very accurate RGB colours. The TV also comes with Sony 4K X1 Extreme HDR processor, which is rated to deliver 40% more real-time image processing than Sony's 4K X1 processor. The usage of the 4K HDR X1 Extreme processor means the content will be upscaled to near 4K HDR quality. Sony has also put in the X-tended Dynamic Range Pro technology that enhances the HDR and non-HDR content on screen by adjusting the backlight levels precisely for different zones of the screen. This technology which is exclusively owned by Sony is said to deliver six times the XDR contrast of conventional LED TV. Besides this, the TV also comes with X-Motion Clarity which makes use of the built-in direct LED local dimming and backlight boosting algorithm and controls the luminance and optimises its duration. Using this technology, the Bravia X9000F is able to deliver clear and smooth visuals with lessened motion blur.
Sony wouldn’t boast about this TV so much if not for the specifications which it packs inside, the Bravia X9000F comes powered with Sony 4K X-Reality Pro picture processing technology.
The new Sony TV runs on Android TV version 7.0 with the company’s own skin on top of it. The presence of Android on the software front, allows the Bravia X9000F to boast of Google Play access. There is also a speculated update on the way which is bound to bring Smart Home Ready to the TV’s platform to enable communication with other smart devices via Artificial Intelligence (AI). Users will also be able to use Chromecast to stream content directly from phones or tables which also support the functionality. Also, keeping in mind the web-binging crowd, there is a dedicated button for Netflix and Google Play to make it easier for the users to access the content online.
The TV has also been provided with a sturdy and stable stand which comes in an inverted V-shape design. The stand has a square structure with metallic bars that come into contact with the underlying surface at individual points thus giving it the sufficient build quality. The TV also has HDR compatibility, HDR 10 support and Hybrid Log-Gamma on the Bravia X9000F series. Sony also confirmed that the Dolby vision support would be added via a future update.
There is also a plethora of connectivity options available for the users who want to connect their TV to storage or other devices to add up to the already existing functionalities. The TV comes with Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.1, four HDMI ports, three USB ports (two on the sides, one at the bottom), and an Ethernet port. There are also additional features like Cinematic S-Force Front Surround, ClearAudio+, DSEE, and DTS Digital Surround. Apart from that, the TV packs in 16GB of onboard internal storage.
