When OLED TVs first hit the market, product selection was limited to just one model from one brand. Today, we have multiple models available from two of the three top brands in the business. With that increase in product selection comes an added difficulty in shopping for a new TV. If you’re planning on buying an OLED TV this year, we’re here to help you decide which is the best for your needs and budget. Today, we’re going to be comparing the newest Sony OLED TVs, both of which have just recently hit our shelves. Continue reading or skip down to our video comparison to learn the major differences in the Sony A80J vs the A90J.
First, a preface. Both the Sony A80J and A90J are stellar TVs, offering arguably the best image quality available from the brand—and beyond. They share many of the same features, including:
- The new Cognitive Processor XR – Sony’s top-tier image processor
- XR Triluminos Pro – Sony’s color technology, giving the picture on these TVs a wider color palette
- Google TV – Arguably the best smart TV OS available
- Bravia Core – Sony’s new lossless 4K streaming service, available only on high-end Sony TVs
- HDMI 2.1 – Futureproof connectivity, perfect for next-gen gaming consoles
- Dolby Vision – For the stunning dynamic range of one of the premier HDR technologies
- IMAX Enhanced and Netflix Calibrated Mode – Ensuring your content looks exactly as its creators intended
- Similar screen sizes – Both are available in 55-inch and 65-inch models. However, the largest A80J available is 77 inches, while the A90J is offered in a 83-inch option.
In short, neither of these Sony OLED TVs will disappoint. But there are subtle differences between the higher-end Sony A90J and its more affordable sibling that may matter to the most demanding users—things like the sound system, the physical build, and the extreme upper limits of picture quality. Carl touches on these differences in his video.
