Sony 2019 A9G and A8G OLED TVs now available

11 Jun 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

The two new Sony OLED TV ranges that were unveiled at CES 2019 are now available in the US and Europe in 55, 65, and 77-inch sizes.

Sony 2019 OLED TVs

Sony A9G (AG9 in Europe) has been available in some regions for a couple of weeks. The more affordable A8G (AG8 in Europe) has now joined the line-up. These TVs replace last year's A8F and A9F series from Sony.

While A8G comes with largely the same features as last year's models, the flagship A9G adds a couple of new features. Besides the 'X1 Ultimate' video processor and HDMI eARC, two features not found in A8G, A9G will get support for Dolby Atmos. Later this year, it will also get Apple's TV app as well as AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support.

Both models come with Sony's 'Acoustic Surface' speaker technology that uses actuators to turn the OLED panel into a speaker membrane. A9G has a more advanced version of the speaker system that includes new actuators and two subwoofers.

 Sony AG9 (A9G) 4K OLED

Sony's new models will compete with 2019 OLED TVs from LG, Panasonic, Philips, and others. Unlike its main competitor LG, Sony has yet to equip its high-end 4K TVs with HDMI 2.1 ports and features. The company recently confirmed that PlayStation 5 will support 4K120, which requires HDMI 2.1. Instead Sony is highlighting distinguishing features such as a Netflix calibrated mode and 'IMAX Enhanced'. Sony TVs also come with Google's Android TV platform that gives users access to apps from the Google Play Store. Chromecast is built-in, too.

Another noteworthy detail is that Sony is bringing back a 77-inch OLED model after having ignored the largest - and disproportionately expensive - format last year. The new 77-inch A9G carries a considerably lower starting price than the company's 77-inch A1 OLED model did in 2017.

Sony A9G and A8G are now shipping in the US. In Europe, where the TVs are called AG9 and AG8, Sony is shipping them in most territories and the TVs should be more widely available in the coming weeks. See the table below for information on prices and dealers.
