Sony has just introduced its A95L TVs with QD-OLED technology and A80L with White-OLED panel, promising ever-increasing peak brightness, access to the Crunchyroll platform, a game bar, but only 2 HDMI 2.1 inputs. Here are all the details.

Traditionally, the CES in Las Vegas is the ideal place for the different players in the television market to present their new ranges. This year, however, Sony has chosen to change its ads. That is why now the Japanese brand has presented its new series of televisions for 2023, which include a total of seven ranges, ranging from high-end models to more affordable models: A95L (QD-OLED), A80L (White -OLED), X95L (Mini-LED), X90L (Full-Array LED), X85L (Full-Array LED), X80L (LED), and X75WL (LED).

Each of these series is available in different sizes, ranging from 43 inches to 98 inches.

The A95L series, with its QD-OLED panel, is the new benchmark for the Japanese brand

In particular, the Sony A95L series is the highest-end and uses the QD-OLED screen technology developed by Samsung Display. It succeeds last year’s Sony A95K and promises higher brightness. It is available in 55, 65 and 77 inches, with an aluminum frame and new feet that offer two different positions depending on whether you want to install a sound bar in front or not. The 77-inch model also offers the possibility of having the legs in the center, thus facilitating its installation in a narrow piece of furniture.

The Sony A95L has Ultra HD definition and incorporates all of the brand’s image optimization and processing technologies, such as XR OLED Contrast Pro, XR Triluminos Pro, XR Clear Image, XP Upscaling and XR OLED Motion, all managed by the Sony XR chip. . In addition, it has Acoustic Surface Audio+ technology, which uses the screen as a source of sound diffusion. The TVs are Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos compatible and support the IMAX Enhanced format to take advantage of the BRAVIA Core integrated streaming platform, with always 10 movies offered for 24 months.

Sony 2023 televisions work under Google TV with the most popular streaming platforms and a novelty: Crunchyroll, the world’s first animated content service (owned by Sony), is now available on the brand’s televisions and has a dedicated button in the new command.

An Eco Dashboard is designed to help the user reduce energy consumption, with various tricks to minimize TV consumption. You can also count on the integration of voice assistants.

Like the A95K series, the A95L TVs come with BRAVIA Cam. This is fixed at the top, in the center, at the back and allows certain automatic functionalities to be offered, such as the possibility of video chatting with other people, sound orientation, presence detection or summary control by gestures.

In 2023, the Sony A95L is the only one that supports the Dolby Game Vision format for video games. However, like the other series this year, it offers a game bar, similar to what we find in other brands. This game bar displays information about the type of signal used and allows you to adjust certain parameters of the image, or even display a crosshair for better aiming.

In addition, the Multi-View option allows you to display two different content simultaneously, for example, a video game on one side and a YouTube video on the other. Hardcore gamers and/or multi-console owners may be disappointed to find that the number of HDMI 2.1 inputs is limited to two, including one that supports eARC technology. Contrary to what MediaTek, the supplier of the chip that manages the HDMI inputs in particular, had announced for the Pentonic 1000, only two HDMI 2.1 inputs are managed, and not four. Also, these TVs are equipped with Wi-Fi 5 (and not Wi-Fi 6), and the Ethernet port is still limited to 100 Mbit/s.

The A80L series with a white OLED panel from LG Display

The Sony A80L series succeeds the A90K, A83K and A75K. It consists of 55, 65, 77-inch models and an 83-inch model that was not available in previous generations. It should offer less brightness than the A95L series, because it uses a white OLED panel (OLED_EX) provided by LG Display.

This series also uses the Sony XR image enhancement processor with the same image processing technologies as the A95L series, as well as Acoustic Surface Audio+. We can count on compatibility with Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos and IMAX Enhanced formats and the same streaming services as the A95L series. The game bar is still available, as well as 2 HDMI 2.1 inputs. Sony offers three different foot positions, one of which allows you to install a soundbar in front, without interfering with the IR receiver. The camera is offered as an option.

The A80L series will be available in April, while the A95L series won’t be available until late summer 2023. Sony has yet to announce pricing for the different sizes.
