Sony UK and Ireland has announced the pricing and availability of its first 2020 televisions to ship – offering a selection of screen sizes from 43in to 85in.
Both XH81 and XH80 series boast the 4K HDR Processor X1, which uses algorithms to cut noise and boost detail. By widening the colour spectrum, TRILUMINOS Display, powered by the X1 processor, reproduces more colours than a conventional television. It analyses and processes data in every image to make colours even more natural and precise, so pictures appear closer than ever to real life.
The XH81 and XH80 models support the Dolby Vision HDR format, and in the sound department, a newly-developed X-Balanced Speaker (55in and above models) packs in high quality sound in an ultra-thin TV design, in addition to Dolby Atmos compatibility.
The XH81 and XH80 line-up also work with Google Assistant via the Android TV platform with Google Play Store and Chromecast built-in, offering users easy access to content, services and devices via its extensive platform.

Apple AirPlay 2 users can stream movies, music, games and photos to their television right from their iPhone, iPad or Mac. The Apple HomeKit technology also provides an easy, secure way for users to control their television from their iPhone, iPad or Mac and Homepod.
