Features Specifications

Four times clearer than HD

That’s right—four times clearer than Full HD 1080p.26 Get acquainted with the highest resolution picture Sony has ever produced on a TV. With four times more resolution than Full HD, the 4K Ultra HD screen contains over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160).

Everything is enhanced

The new 4K X-Reality™ PRO chip enhances HD (or lower resolution) images by analyzing and refining images with beautifully natural detail and astounding color, breathing new life into everything you see with phenomenal 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution.27

Colors never seen on TV before

Spoil yourself with the widest color spectrum we’ve ever offered on a television. Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS Display technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors—just the way you want them.

4K Ultra HD now and in the future

Sony 4K Ultra HD TV owners are the first in the world to be able to enjoy hit Hollywood movies in 4K Ultra HD, using the Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player (sold separately). Sony 4K TVs are also ready to support the next 4K video formats, such as 60p 4K sports video, that will become possible using the new HDMI® 2.0 specification. A convenient and free Internet firmware update will be available late 2013.28

The difference is dynamic

It's all about perfecting a natural look. Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with local dimming delivers pitch-black night scenes and illuminates bright scenes.

Movies in 4K Ultra HD

Sony has introduced the world’s first in-home media player to bring you 4K Hollywood hit movies (sold separately). Four times clearer than HD, Sony’s Video Unlimited 4K service allows you to rent or purchase feature films, TV shows, documentaries and more.

Lifelike motion

Quick motion seen in action movies and sports appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow™ XR 960 technology, which takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, smooths out the picture where the camera can't for clearer and more natural movement.

Your smartphone, now on TV

Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the X850, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own.

Go way beyond cable with built-in Wi-Fi®

Open the door to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps.29

Custom control installations

Get immersed in 3D

There’s 3D, then there’s 3D with 4K (3,840 x 2,160). Life-like 3D images emerge from the 4K screen with realism that makes your heart race. The level of detail is absolutely stunning — it's the closest thing to a 3D theater in your living room.12

Twice the fun: 2-player games with no split screen

SimulView™ gaming presents two separate full screen pictures: each player watches independently through SimulView mode on the included 3D active glasses.25
