Sony has announced the prices of its 2022 Bravia 4K and 8K TVs and it will come as no surprise that the cutting-edge models will command a premium. Most notably the Quantum Dot OLED-based Bravia XR Master A95K series (Pictured above) starts at $3,000 for a 55-inch model and goes up to $4,000 for a 65-inch device. Both 4K screens will be available for pre-order in June. They’re certainly not the most expensive TVs you can buy, but you’re clearly paying for the larger QD OLED color gamut, flexible stand setup, and bundled video chat camera.
Most of the remaining TVs are significantly cheaper. If you prefer mini-LED over OLED, this is the X95K series starts at $2,800 for a 65-inch 4K panel and goes up to $5,500 for the 85-inch variant. They can be pre-ordered this summer. They also have cheaper traditional OLED options. The compact, gaming-friendly A90K (with pre-orders in July) costs $1,400 for a 42-inch display and $1,500 for its 48-inch counterpart (June). Go for the bigger one A80K and you’ll pay between $2,000 and $3,800 for sets ranging from 55 to 77 inches, with most pre-orders starting this month. The ‘entry’ on LED basis X90K costs $1,400 for a 55-inch model and costs $3,300 for an 85-inch, with most pre-orders also starting in May.
And yes, 8K is still expensive at Sony. You pay $7,000 for a 75-inch device Z9Kand $10,000 for the 85-inch equivalent. Both are mini LED TVs and will include the A95K’s camera when pre-orders start in the summer.
There’s no doubt that Sony’s OLED sets will look expensive compared to some LG and Samsung models. However, it’s obvious that Sony is banking on its picture quality and design touches that will motivate you to spend more. We’d like to add that it’s one of the few high-end brands to base their product range on Android TV and Google TV. If you don’t like webOS (LG) or Tizen (Samsung), this might be your best bet.
