Sony’s new A95K QD-OLED TV could be cheaper than we first thought
The latest QD-OLED TV lineup from Sony could be as low as $4,000
While we have no official A95K release date just yet, Sony may have accidentally revealed the pricing of its flagship QD-OLED A95K TV. Alongside this, prices for the A80K and A90K TVs are also being speculated, with retail values being much cheaper than we first thought.
It’ll come as no surprise to learn that Sony’s new lineup of QD-OLED TVs is one of the most anticipated of 2022. They will feature the latest QD-OLED technology that is said to merge the best features of both Quantum Dot and OLED technologies.
Sony A95K latest news and updates
February 15th, 2022: Potential prices leak for the Sony A95K based on eligible rewards points from official Sony US product pages.

So, how much will the A95K cost? Well, according to HDTVTest (who has calculated prices based on Sony’s reward points system), we could see the A95K retail for as cheap as $3,000 (55-inch model).
The 65-inch variant looks like it could launch for $4,000 while the 55-inch is $3,000 – but how did we get to those figures. Well, if you head over to the official Sony Bravia XR A95K product page, the brand has published the reward points for purchasing either size of the new QD-OLED TV.
Sony’s rewards points system seems to work on a dollar-to-point ratio – with almost every product across the site using this rewards system. Looking at the A95K product page, it highlights the reward for buying a 55-inch A95K will be 3000 points – meaning it’ll likely launch for $3,000.
We did the same calculation for the Sony 65 inch and the price worked out to $4,000 – see image below for reference.
If the leaked prices are to be true, that’ll make the new lineup of QD-OLED TVs much cheaper than we first expected. One Korean news publication posted a suspected $8,000 price tag for the A95K – which seemed likely considering market inflation and the new tech being implemented in these TVs. However, the new data (which may be too good to be true) suggests we could see a much more affordable launch price.
Sony QD-OLED vs LCD LED prices
So, if the Sony A95K prices are to be believed, how does that compare with the current generation of LCD TVs?
Well, let’s take a closer look. Here are the LCD LED prices for 2021/22:

As you can see from the graph above, if the reward-based prices are to be true, you’d have to say that the next-gen QD-OLED TVs showcase excellent value for money.

In other news, Dell looks set to beat both Samsung and Sony to the QD-OLED punch, releasing its Alienware AW3423DW QD-OLED ready gaming monitor. The 34-inch ultrawide gaming monitor – which uses similar panel technology – will retail for around $1,299. Here’s what the company stated:
“We’re excited to announce that the Alienware 34 QD-OLED Gaming Display will arrive early this Spring for $1,299 USD“
If all is to be true, it looks like 2022 could be an incredibly exciting time for display enthusiasts.
