Equipped with the X1 Extreme processor, it comes in 55” and 65” sizes and showcases 8 million self-illuminating pixels. The A8F Bravia OLED TV can display 4K, High Dynamic Range (HDR), HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision1 content from a supporting service provider, paired with harmonious sound thanks to Acoustic Surface technology.

With a vertical one slate design, the speaker is hidden inside, and there’s also hidden cable management.

Plus, it’s a smart TV, powered by Android TV. Download your favourite apps and games from Google Play, including Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. It’s Google Home compatible, so you can cast content from YouTube using your voice; and cast apps to the TV via Google Cast.

1 Dolby Vision firmware update will be available by summer 2018.


Enjoy your favourite video content with exquisite contrast, deep blacks, and true-to-life colours and shadow details with the Sony A8F Bravia OLED TV.

More than 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the X1 Extreme processor, resulting in great contrast. This works alongside 4K X-Reality Pro to produce incredible detail and clarity, no matter what you are watching.

As a Triluminous display, the Sony 4K OLED TV also includes 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping that helps reproduce smooth and vibrant colours. MotionFlow XR technology helps content appear with lifelike motion.


The X1 processor found in the A8F Bravia OLED TV helps upscale all content to near 4K HDR quality. So no matter what you are watching and what the source, the viewing experience will be improved.

The newly-developed 4K HDR processor X1 Extreme outperforms Sony’s conventional 4K Processor X1, providing 40% more real-time image processing power.

Object-based HDR Remaster detects, analyzes, and optimizes each object in a picture individually, adjusting the overall contrast so you see a more natural, realistic picture on screen.


Perfectly complementing the gorgeous picture of the Bravia OLED TV is a revolution in TV sound. Sony Acoustic Surface technology consists of small vibrating transducers/actuators that are positioned behind the screen on either side, vibrating the panel to create sound without causing any distortion to picture quality.

This results in a unique and enhanced viewing experience, since sound literally comes from the entire screen. You get picture and sound in perfect harmony.

  1. Why would I buy another 4K that doesn’t have 3D? I have over 150 3D Bluray discs that I would no longer be able to play. Just add 3D back in the new sets and I will be looking at updating once again. I am a sucker for new technology but I don’t want to be abandoned by the manufacturers.

    4K is great but not as much as the difference between 2D and 3D. Give us a choice.

  2. Sorry guys to dispute but there is no comparison between the 4K LG ( or Sony) and the Sony LED sets. I am a professional photographer and for over thirty years have been using pro monitors and colour science for 10 hours a day. My business is colour. The dynamic range of the OLED with its deep blacks and detailed highlights along with the deep saturation of the colours is not matched by anything available. My older Panasonic Plasma ( which has great colour) is left behind in the dirt. Unfortunately, although there is 4K content streaming and on cable, the codec compression of the signal mutes HDR and the only way to really experience true HDR and 4K is with a good 4K disc player. Sound dynamics are also far better and a good Atmos disc is stunning both aurally and visually. Until they figure out how to broadcast better lossless signals discs will never die. As far as 8K broadcasters are having a hard enough time with 4K – don’t wait for 8K – when 8K content is finally perfected they will be working on 10K – like all tech the powers that be will always be spinning the next great advancement. Get yourself a good 4K set along with a Sony 4K player now and enjoy. As far as burn-in is concerned just like a Plasma set dont keep a stationary image on your screen for more than a few hours – simple science. Most OLED sets also have a pixel wipe feature that will level out values if you have concerns.

  3. Your problem is watching CNN not the burn in… And OLED is way better than led or lcd… The response time is on par with a plasma, unkind the 2 just mentioned, which will give you motion blur.

  4. Don’t bother to spend on this one cause 8k TV is just around the corner; LG has already shown one off at a Electronics show in Asia. Samsung and is also going to make 8k screens available soon. I’ll bet that you’ll be able to get one next year.

    • we have 75in oled that’s cost 50000 usd an 8k tv is not going to be ready for consumer market for a while. Consumer market for 40-55in TV.

  5. While everything else about this TV might encourage one to buy it, my only suggestion is to read about the ‘burn-in’ problem specific these days to OLED’s. I bought the 65″ LG OLED and barely within the year had to request for a panel change as the burn in had occurred due to my excessive watching of CNN. The banner ‘BREAKING NEWS’ on the CNN channels had burnt in. So do your homework. Otherwise my TV produces stunning picture quality.

    • I have had a OLED for more than 2 years, and also have plamsa for more than 5 years. I have not had an issue with burn in. If your getting a burn in that mean you been watching the same content for a long time. Honestly if you keeping changing of what you watch you should never get a burn in.

    • Pretty the “Shop now” button Howard immediately above your comment. It takes you to the BestBuy website and a search result for this TV giving you the prices.
      As of this comment, $4.8k CAD for the 65 and 3.8k for the 55.

    • Also, if you’re not “deadset” on OLED, you can get an LED LCD version of this made by Sony called the 930E that also uses the same “X1 Extreme Imagine Processor”, same android TV system, etc for $2500/$2200 respectively or about half the cost. Right now, in my opinion, I’d say OLED is overrated. The 930E has a BEAUTIFUL picture for half the cost at the same sizes with identical image processing technology. OLED has a slightly higher chance of burn in of images for gamers. So if you game, it’s no-brainer.

        • Even the 900E is spectacular picture but i will say the android system is slow to react and frustrating
