CES 2022 was a breath of fresh air as far as display technology was concerned, offering up new and exciting products that are sure to be some of the best 2022 has to offer. Alongside LG’s C2 and G2 series, Sony also unveiled a high-performance TV lineup that looks set to utilize the latest QD-OLED technology (like Samsung’s QD-OLED TVs) – merging the benefits of both OLED and QD (Quantum Dot).

The new TV lineup from Sony is called the Bravia XR Master Series A95K and will supersede the hugely popular A90J lineup of TVs. Despite plenty of exciting announcements for the A95K being showcased, one question about the A95K still remains – when will the release date be?

Fortunately, the wait for that answer is finally over, with Sony officially unveiling prices and release dates for the entire 2022 TV lineup. Of course, the A95K is the most anticipated of their 2022 display range, with an official US release date of June. Prices will start from $3,000, putting them well above the price of similarly-specced S95B.

In this guide, we’ll be keeping you bang up to date with all the latest Sony A95K release dates, prices, specs, and general updates so you’re ahead of the curve when it comes to purchasing your next TV.

Sony A95K QD-OLED TV release date: What we know so far

Sony officially announced a US release date for its 2022 TV lineup yesterday, with TVs available from June onwards. Alongside this, the company has published a Bravia XR A95K landing page on its website that offers up a list of features and some limited specifications.

If the Samsung and LG launches are anything to go by, Sony’s new A95K QD-OLED TV should launch sometime in the first half of 2022. Both Samsung QD-OLED and LG C2/G2 panels have been speculated (by insiders) to hit shelves within the first half of the year.

As always, we’ll be updating this page as and when new information comes in, so be sure to bookmark us for the latest news on the Sony Bravia A95K.

Sony Bravia XR A95K QD-OLED price

The big surprise surrounding the latest Sony news has to be the pricing. Sony has listed the 55-inch variant at $3,000, a mere $800 more expensive than the Samsung S95B – its closest rival.

That gap only widens as we compare the 65-inch S95B and A95K variants, with Sony’s start price set at $4,000 – $1,000 more than the S95B.

We’ll be reviewing both QD-OLED TVs in the coming weeks and it’ll very interesting to see how the two panels compare – especially with Sony’s $800 premium.

Sony A95K QD-OLED sizing guide

As far as size goes, we will likely see the Sony A95K QD-OLED hit shelves in 55 inch and 65 inch variants. As Sony will be using a Samsung Display panel for this particular lineup, we can expect to see the same range of models as Samsung’s latest QD-OLED.

Alternatively, it looks like the Sony A90K is the TV of choice for gamers who want to enjoy a smaller – yet still equally as immersive – visual experience. This particular lineup will feature 42 inch and 48 inch variants, ideal for both console gamers and individuals that don’t have the space for a larger alternative.

Sony Bravia XR Master Series A95K Specs

Looking at specifications, the big news surrounding the A95K is the Samsung Display panel that sits at the heart of this TV. For all intents and purposes, QD-OLED is a ‘best of both worlds’ technology that combines the benefits of both OLED and Quantum Dot.

For those new to TV tech, that means Sony’s Bravia XR Master Series A95K will deliver the extremely high contrast ratio (thanks to individually controlled pixels) and perfect blacks of OLED – while also offering the intense vibrancy and high peak luminance of Quantum Dot. A win-win scenario.

Sony Bravia A95K features

Panel technology aside, the Sony Bravia XR Master Series A95K looks set to drop with a 4K UHD screen resolution, an improved XR processor (that offers Depth Control and Flexible Color), and even better viewing angles than OLED. As always, Sony’s A95K will also feature Acoustic Surface Audio+, a built-in Bravia Cam for video chat and gesture control (at a later date), and a brand new 36% smaller remote.

Like many modern TVs, the Sony A95K also follows the ‘made for PS5’ trend that seems to be washing over the display marketplace. Accompanied by Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode, PlayStation 5 gaming should look absolutely fantastic on this TV. Furthermore, with ALLM (auto low latency mode) and Variable Refresh Rate technology, you’ll be enjoying silky-smooth gameplay at 4K 120Hz in no time.
