Slide 4 of 7


Sony X900F, X850F

Following up on the success of its X900E and X850E from 2017, Sony announced the F series a few months ago which features its latest 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme. Why is it so important? For starters, Sony is the top flat-panel TV manufacturer in the 2018 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis, so any information regarding a new model is going to cause a bit of a stir! But the twin models can back that hype up with some meaningful upgrades over the E model range, like Sony's latest 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme, which includes Object-based HDR Remaster, Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR, and Dual database processing capabilities. Features to know: Will support Dolby Vision HDR through a firmware update (going out later this year). X-Motion Clarity technology. X-tended Dynamic Range PRO 6x.
