”We’ve never before tested a TV this size that’s this good.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

The perfect OLED TV for smaller rooms

OLED TV is widely regarded as the ‘gold standard’ in TV yet, until recently, has only been available in larger TV screen sizes. With this Sony 48 inch TV, you get a smaller version of the award-winning BRAVIA OLED technology. This means you get all the OLED benefits, just in a TV that fits your room.

4K OLED panel for the finest picture around
Backlighting technology is a thing of the past with OLED. Instead of using various arrays of LEDs to light an LCD display, OLED uses over eight million self-illuminating pixels for sensational image quality. With self-illuminating pixels, you get outstanding contrast. Blacks are far deeper than LED displays and corresponding whites much brighter. For the ultimate in realism, OLED is where it’s at.

Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR just keeps getting better
Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR marries AI to cognitive intelligence for a picture balance that’s best suited to humans rather than just algorithms. The processor analyses every element of the picture to give a sharper image with greater depth and realism. The latest processor features Depth Control and Flexible Colour Contrast Control for even greater depth and colour vibrancy.

XR Triluminos Pro and OLED Contrast Pro for ultimate colour
XR Triluminos Pro combines with XR Colour to deliver the truest and most natural colour. For the highest levels of contrast and detail, XR OLED Contrast Pro adjusts the brightness to give brighter peaks and more detail within darker areas.

The smoothest images with XR OLED Motion and 4K XR Smoothing
Keeping the millions of pixels in check, Sony’s XR OLED Motion technology keeps the action flowing smoothly. Minimising blur, the powerful processing strikes the perfect balance between ultimate detail and the smoothest motion. 4K XR Smoothing reduces picture banding, giving a more lifelike and natural flow to images.

Picture quality as the creator intended – NCM, Dolby Vision and Calman Ready
Compatible with a wide range of technologies, the XR-48A90KU reproduces visuals, just as the creator intended. If you’re a movie fan, you’ll love NCM (Netflix Calibrated Mode). NCM bypasses many of the TV’s processors, giving you a picture that’s much closer to how the filmmaker intended. Calman Ready, this TV is also ideal for those who wish to calibrate their TV to truly professional levels.

Acoustic Surface Audio+ for perfect sound to picture sync
Sony’s unique Acoustic Surface Audio+ speaker system enhances the sync between what you see and what you hear. Vibrating actuators positioned behind the screen pinpoint the sound to the action, heightening the sense of connection and realism. With a centre subwoofer fitted, Acoustic Surface Audio+ gives a bottom-end boost, too.

XR Surround with 3D Surround Upscaling for enveloping sound
Part of the Cognitive Processor XR, XR Surround with 3D Surround Upscaling takes a regular audio signal and creates a virtual surround sound effect – making you feel more immersed in the action.

Works with BRAVIA CAM*
The optional BRAVIA CAM (extra cost option), is the innovative new camera that does so much more than video calls. BRAVIA CAM recognises where viewers are sitting and optimises the picture and sound to suit. It also facilitates the use of gesture control. All this plus it still functions with your TV to make it the ultimate device for video calls.

*Gesture control and auto optimisation function due later in 2022

Google TV**
Using Google’s world-class interface, Google TV makes accessing this Sony TV’s smart features a breeze. Customise your home screen with the apps you use the most, enjoy recommendations, curate your movie nights and even add to your watchlist via your smartphone – Google TV makes sense of Smart TV. You can also access the Sony’s picture, sound and other TV settings – keeping all you need under one ‘roof’.

**This Sony BRAVIA TV features the Youview catch-up TV service, which includes BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 & My5.

Hands-free voice control your TV
Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. The built-in mic lets you search, hands-free. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony is compatible, too. Apple AirPlay and Homekit compatibility makes it possible to integrate with your Apple system. Support for Amazon Alexa devices also means you can voice control via your existing Alexa device.

New, premium quality remote control
Pared back and premium, the new aluminium remote control is a joy to use. Simplified buttons and a backlight make it easy to use, day or night. It’s also easy to find. With Function Finder, simply ask the TV to find the remote and remote sends an alert signal – perfect for when it’s dropped behind a cushion!

The perfect partner for your PS5
Combine this BRAVIA XR TV with your PS5 and get a fully optimised experience. Whether you’re gaming or watching a movie on your PS5, the TV automatically adjusts to optimise the picture and settings. Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode mean your PS5 is served better than ever by this Sony TV.

Multi-position stand
Supplied with a multi-position stand, the XR-48A90KU is ideal for use, with or without a soundbar. Dedicated settings offer a higher position for soundbar in place or the standard, low profile position for a sleeker style. The adjustable stand also makes the TV suitable as a desktop gaming display.

Brilliant as TV, gaming monitor, or both, the Sony BRAVIA XR-48A90KU is an incredibly versatile OLED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Wow I got his TV a week ago, and it is just amazing. The OLED quality is just stunning, the apps are great and in addition you get to access Sony's own streaming service. Sony quality is there, even the remotes (yes you get two) are top quality. RECOMMENDED

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, superb picture I bought this TV 3 weeks ago & both the features, picture & sound are excellent, I was hoping to get the A95k, but 55” wouldn’t fit in the space I have available, but I have to say, the 95 must be some TV if it outperforms this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Nice colours. Very deep blacks. Like that it has Apple TV

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite good All the Apps for Internet radio are pretty useless. It's three steps back from the German TV that it replaced. Otherwise very satisfactory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant replacement for our 10 year old Tv the s So pleased with this new Sony tv Lice everything about the sound & picture quality.
Date published: 2022-08-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture I bought this TV a month ago and have been very pleased with it so far (great picture quality and sound is OK but better through a sound bar) apart from one aspect. The sound bar doesn't work when the TV is getting its signal direct from the aerial socket: it defaults to the TV's speakers. The sound bar works fine with all the other inputs eg blue ray player, BBC iPlayer programs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great TV. I've been awaiting the appearance of this model on the market for quite a few months. I originally considered the XR-55A84K but it was too big, so I assumed Sony would be producing a 48" version, it being the most popular TV size in the UK. I have to say, it was well worth the wait. It was relatively easy to instal (although information as to which numbers the HDMI inputs have would be useful), and starts up really fast. My old Sony took ages. The picture quality is absolutely superb, and the sound, albeit through a Sony sound bar from my old TV, is an improvement over the old model. I also like the remote; the buttons are illuminated for a short period when it's picked up; very useful in poor light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV but……. This really is a great TV, set up was quick and easy and was up and running within 15 minutes. The picture quality is outstanding however what’s wrong with the sound quality, it sounds like the sounds coming out of an old Sony Walkman set of headphones, no depth very tinny very disappointing indeed.
