Sony has sold its original OLED TV with a $5, 000 hefty price tag. To brand the company’s OLED TV as expensive is actually an understatement. And if you are a huge fan of both design and image processing, then you must opt to patronize other alternative brand like LG.

Now for this year, this wouldn’t be a problem for Sony. This comes after the company has revealed the pricing for its A8F sets this year. Sony’s A8F starts with a price of $2, 8000 for a 55-inch model. The price is expected to soar to $3, 800 for the company’s 65-inc model.
With Sony’s current price for its latest TV variants, it is obvious that the price is more expensive than LG C8. LG is selling its C8 product for $2, 5000 only, however, it is obvious to justify Sony’s expensive price. Compared to LG, Sony’s A8F is powered by a screen-as-speaker technology.
That’s an obvious catch as rumors suggest that Dolby Vision is not yet ready. Online reports suggest that Sony’s A8F and the company’s other 4K TVs won’t support HDR format. It would only support HDR format until an update would arrive later this year. This means that you have to settle, for the time being, either HDR10 or the Hybrid Log-Gamma, respectively.
Meanwhile, if you are planning to go with LED-based 4K TVs, you can select from a variety of variants. Sony’s X900F has an entry-level price of $1,100 for a 49-inch model. Such price is expected to climb to $5,300 for an 85-inch variant. Also, you can now pre-order Sony’s A8F via Amazon and Best Buy respectively.
