Featuring Sony’s powerful X1 processor, the Sony Bravia KD-55XG8505 makes the most of all your TV viewing, and more.

Powerful X1 processor – for the best image from any source

The sophisticated X1 processor takes account of the fact that not all UHD 4K signals are equal. A RAW 4K UHD signal from a 4K UHD player requires different processing than a Netflix 4K or a USB video signal. Sony's X1 processor analyses every signal and optimises it for the best performance possible. Thanks to Sony's X-Reality PRO 4K technology, standard images from TV and other sources are taken as close to UHD 4K resolution as possible, for stunning clarity.

HDR support, including Dolby Vision
HDR maximises picture quality, bringing detail to the darkest areas of the picture as well as making the overall image look more life-like than ever. As well as HDR10 and HLG formats, this Sony 55” TV is also compatible with Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Very much an industry standard, Dolby Vision continually adjusts the picture for the most remarkable realism.

The smoothest motion with Motionflow XR 800Hz from a native 100Hz screen
This Sony is also fitted with a native 100 Hz screen for faster refresh rates. Combined with Sony's Motionflow XR 800Hz, this screen gives the Sony super-smooth motion, that's both crisp and steady. Whether you're watching a fast-moving action movie or sports event, this Sony 55 inch TV remains smooth and steady.

Acoustic Multi-Audio for enhanced sound
Acoustic Multi-Audio uses an array of speakers around the body of the TV to provide sound that’s as closely related to the picture as possible. As well as the usual down-firing speakers, sound positioning tweeters tie-in the sound for perfect voice sync.

Android TV at its best yet
Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy. Sony’s latest Android TVs are up to 60% faster at launching apps than before. This means that as you switch between YouTube, Netflix and the Home Menu you get a more responsive feel and can enjoy your content sooner.

Google Assistant for effortless interaction
Built-in Google Assistant and voice control makes finding content easier than ever. You can find new entertainment, check schedules and control your smart home simply by talking to the screen. For universal control, the system also works with Alexa (once connected to a suitable device) and Apple AirPlay/HomeKit via AirPlay.

Make TV easy, with YouView
YouView is a popular innovation that brings together live and on demand TV in an effortless, intuitive way. The simple menu page lets you easily find live or catch-up programmes, without having to open separate apps.

Bluetooth remote
Supplied with a brand new remote control design, this Sony TV uses Bluetooth functionality for even easier control. With all the keys (except power) linked via Bluetooth, you no longer have to point the remote directly at the TV to operate it.

Sleek design
Sporting an aluminium trimmed bezel and a smooth design, the KD55XG8505 looks every bit the quality product you’d expect from Sony. Neat details include the feet with built-in cable tidy – ensuring the Sony’s style is kept as clean as possible.

Watch it all, at the best quality possible, with the Sony Bravia KD-55XG8505.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little difficult to setup! I researched extensively before buying this product, I have found it difficult to sync it to the sound bar (haven't managed this on week later!) and can't adjust the sound bar using the tv remote control. Picture is excellent but am frustrated with the sound bar issues.
