Superb colour from Triluminos display with 4K X-Reality Pro

Sony’s Triluminos screens display a full palette of colours in truly life-like form. Every hue and shade is richly and accurately recreated. Thanks to Sony's 4K X-Reality PRO technology, standard images from TV and other sources are taken as close to UHD 4K resolution as possible, for stunning clarity.

HDR support
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. With HDR10 and HLG formats covered, this Sony 55” TV is compatible with a wide range of HDR movies, games and TV.

The smoothest motion with Motionflow XR 400Hz
Fitted with Sony’s Motionflow XR 400Hz, the Sony KD-55XG8196 provides 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.

Android Oreo TV
Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy. The Oreo version makes searching for content easier as well as adding further customisation options and app editing.

Control your TV with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant
Connect up your Amazon Alexia device and you get access to wide range of voice control options. Alter the volume, change the channel or input and more – all just by asking Alexa. Alternatively, connect a Google Home and use the Google Assistant to control the Android menu and find your favourites.

Sleek design
Sporting a super-slim bezel and a smooth design, the KD55XG8196 looks every bit the quality product you’d expect from Sony. Neat details include the minimalist aluminium feet with built-in cable tidy – ensuring the Sony’s style is kept as clean as possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony Bravia Swapped a New Samsung for this sonybravia due to technical fault on Samsung and was pleased with the picture quality on that but the Sony is streets ahead sharpness and the colours are far better the connectivity is also much better the tv remote learns many functions of the firestick and sky box it was a £120 more than the Samsung but worth every penny. I would also like to say what a pleasure it Is to deal with the guys at richer sounds once again the best just got better at what they do. I would recommend them to anyone looking for audio visual hifi stuff oh and six year guarantee for no extra Currys wants £175 for two years when I compared deals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb picture quality I bought this Sony Android for upstairs for my wife so she could use all the apps like Netflix, itv hub, etc, but after seeing the quality I am looking at changing my 55" curved tv and buying a larger Sony Android for downstairs , I have installed some apps myself easily via xplore, but in general the colour is brilliant, deep black, vibrant colours, brilliant, I haven't been a Sony person in the past but my outlook is much different now, top Mark's.
