#7167 The chip for all 4k models from Sony is Meditek MT5595 2x ARM17 + 2x ARM7 = not very strong chip.

No idea what 1080p models in 2015 use as a chip. Hope their up-scaling is like Samsung H7000/7150 of last year which was best ever. The Sony last year only barely matched the MediaTek chip on H6400 for example. (while the 7 series had Samsung chip and Samsung scaling algorithm)

viewtopic.php?p=7143#p7143

The W805C/W80C & W755C/W75C use same panels in 55", 50", 43" from AOU (99% sure)

W855C/W85C are bigger versions of W805C/W80C (65" & 75") and the only differences are that these two 65" & 75" have direct led while all other models are edge led. (hope Sony has perfect implementation for edge otherwise expect uniformity issues)

Another one is that the 65" & 75" have long duct speakers.
Rich, satisfying sound is a vital part of your BRAVIA entertainment experience. This newly-designed speaker reproduces rich, powerful bass and lower mid-range sounds, adding extra punch and depth to action movies, music and dialogue. The long 1.2m speaker duct is cleverly folded into a compact unit that’s hidden neatly behind the TV screen’s bezel

R550C / R55C / R440C / R44C use same panels as W705C/W70C in 48", 40", 32" from Chinese supplier (50% sure) but W705C/W70C has X reality pro chip or software suite.

W805C/W80C = Android. X reality pro, Active 3D, motion flow 800 ( 60 Hz panel + eye bleeding x4 BFI ? )
W755C/W75C = Android. X reality pro, no 3D, motion flow 800 ( 60 Hz panel + eye bleeding x4 BFI ?)
W705C/W70C = No android but smart, X reality pro, no 3D, motion flow 200 (60 Hz panel + x2 BFI )
R550C / R55C = No android but smart, no 3D, motion flow 100 ( 60 Hz panel )
R440C / R44C = No smart, no 3D, motion flow 100 ( 60 Hz panel )

You can turn off BFI but hopefully they don't have PWM.

#7171 Great info!

I'm looking forward to the new Sony TVs with Android TV, but as you say the MediaTek chip does not look very powerful.

I hope that manufacturers will launch powerful Android TV 4K media players in the near future, too.

#7173 As I wrote in the other Panasonic thread, I'm very interested in the new Panasonic and Sony TVs.

I hope that you will take one of the new Sony W8 or X8 TVs in for testing ;)

#7180 I'm not sure yet, but we hope to take a look at one of the "value-for-money" TVs such as the W8 :) And then also one or two of the Ultra HD models.

#7290 Still waiting for the new Sony 2015 TVs! What is taking Sony so long? I remember that Sony has released most of its TV in February/March these past few years. Is it because of the Google involvement?...

#7302 I can't decide which one to buy Panasonic 55CX700 or Sony 55W805/9C :) 4K vs 2K, Firefox vs Android, I'can't wait for Sony tests.
