Sony Bravia XR OLED 4K Ultra HD Smart TV | XR42A90KU
Whatever you’re watching, you’ll see it upscaled close to 4K quality thanks to our unique Cognitive Processor XR™. You’ll also enjoy striking contrast on our OLED screen that’s expertly controlled by our unique technology to deliver real life depth and pure blacks in every scene.
Cognitive Processor XR™
Take vision and sound to the next level with Cognitive Processor XR™. Our revolutionary processor on Sony BRAVIA XR™ TVs reproduces content the way humans see and hear for an incredibly lifelike experience. It understands how the human eye focuses, cross analysing images to give real life depth, extraordinary contrast and beautifully vivid colours.
XR OLED Contrast Pro
XR OLED Contrast Pro boosts colour and contrast in bright areas for exceptionally realistic pictures defined by absolute pure blacks and peak brightness. With a temperature sensor  and high luminance panel , this OLED TV utilises our Cognitive Processor XR™ to detect screen temperature and precisely control light so pixels in bright areas are illuminated simultaneously.
XR Triluminos Pro
Powered by our Cognitive Processor XR™, XR Triluminos Pro enables A90K to access over a billion colours and reproduce each one with the subtle differences seen in the real world. Together with our wide colour gamut panel and human-centric processor, it can detect colour from saturation, hue and brightness to deliver natural shades in every detail.
XR HDR Remaster
With XR HDR Remaster, this TV can detect each object on screen, analyse its colour and adjust contrast for even more realistic pictures. Object-based processing, powered by BRAVIA XR, takes precision to a whole new level by adding adjustment of hue, saturation, brightness, motion vector, bandwidth and more. The result is exceptionally real scenes with greater depth, lifelike textures and natural colours.
XR 4K Upscaling
With XR 4K Upscaling, you’ll enjoy entertainment close to 4K quality, whatever the content or source. Our Cognitive Processor XR™ accesses a vast amount of data, intelligently recreating lost textures and detail for real world pictures.
4K XR Super Resolution
XR Super Resolution detects individual objects in a picture and reproduces virtually real world textures on screen. Our BRAVIA XR processor precisely analyses and processes data to power 4K pictures with four times the resolution of Full HD to enrich scenes with real world detail and texture.
4K XR Smoothing
XR Smoothing creates smooth, natural 4K pictures as you watch, without the “banding” that can occur on other TVs. Scenes are reproduced with thousands of tones, shades and gradations, making them look incredibly real.
XR OLED Motion
Powered by our Cognitive Processor XR™, XR OLED Motion combats blur by detecting and cross analysing key visual elements on successive frames. It creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones so you can enjoy smooth and clear action, even in fast-moving sequences.
Beautiful colours from any angle
Watching TV from the sides is now as satisfying as from the centre. Our self-illuminating OLED panel keeps colours consistent and true, wherever you’re watching.
Get the edge on the competition with BRAVIA. With HDMI 2.1, you can get an up to 120fps framerate on compatible games, so you can take on any challenge in shooting, sports and high-performance games with near instant on-screen action. You’ll also enjoy ultra-smooth gaming with reduced input lag of 8.5ms with 4K/120fps and dedicated Game Mode.
Auto Low Latency Mode
With Auto Low Latency Mode in HDMI 2.1, BRAVIA recognises when a console is connected and powered on, and automatically switches to low latency mode. You’ll enjoy smoother, more responsive gameplay – vital for fast-moving, high-intensity games.
Variable Refresh Rate
With a Variable Refresh Rate in HDMI 2.1, BRAVIA avoids stuttering delays and screen tearing. This TV dynamically adjusts the display refresh rate to match the variable frame rates of the gaming device for smoother gameplay.
Auto HDR Tone Mapping
With Auto HDR Tone Mapping the HDR settings will be optimised instantly during your PS5™ console’s initial setup. Your PS5™ automatically recognises individual BRAVIA TV models and selects the best HDR setting for your TV accordingly. So even in high contrast scenes, you’ll see the crucial details and colours in the brightest and darkest parts of the screen.
Auto Genre Picture Mode
BRAVIA automatically switches into Game mode to minimise input lag and make the action more responsive. When watching movies on PlayStation5® consoles, it switches back to Standard Mode to focus on picture processing for more expressive scenes.
Acoustic Surface Audio+
Sound comes directly from the screen with Acoustic Surface Audio＋™. Two actuators vibrate, uniquely turning the entire screen into a speaker to create powerful acoustics that move with the picture so you hear realistic sounds with clear and natural dialogue. A centre subwoofer boosts bass for truly immersive cinematic sound at home.
3D Surround Upscaling
With BRAVIA XR™, everything you watch gets the true surround sound treatment. XR Surround virtually creates surround sound from the sides and vertically using just the TV speakers, so you can experience 3D audio without the need for in-ceiling or up-firing speakers. Our BRAVIA XR™ TVs are also compatible with Dolby Atmos®.
Voice Zoom 2
Hear TV dialogue more clearly without turning up the volume. Even if speech is difficult to hear, Voice Zoom 2 detects the type of voice, analyses it and enhances its clarity.
Acoustic Center Sync
When you connect a BRAVIA XR TV to a Sony soundbar, the soundbar reinforces the centre speaker channel for clearer and fuller vocals. This enables sound to precisely match on-screen action for a truly immersive experience.
Ready for 360 Spatial Sound
Tailor your Dolby Atmos® experience by combining our SRS-NS7 wearable speaker with BRAVIA XR™ for spatial surround sound. With selected Sony headphones, you can also enjoy the simulated surround of 360 Spatial Sound using Wireless Transmitter WLA-NS7 (sold separately).
Connect Bluetooth® compatible devices to your TV for easy wire free entertainment. Pair your Bluetooth headphones or earphones with BRAVIA and enjoy TV shows and music in your favourite place – without any disturbances or interruptions.
Sit back and enjoy an enthralling viewing experience. Our unique ambient optimisation technology with light sensor automatically adjusts picture and sound to your environment.
On conventional TVs, brightness stays the same regardless of light in a room, resulting in pictures that are too dark or bright. This TV includes a light sensor that optimises picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones so you get the perfect view.
Acoustic Auto Calibration
No matter where you’re sitting, this TV detects your position and optimises sound so you’ll enjoy the same sound quality as if you’re sitting right in front of the TV. Sound can change depending on your room environment. Curtains, for example, absorb sound while objects in front of the TV can disturb the passage of sound, compromising the quality of what you hear. This TV detects objects and reproduces sound that’s enhanced and optimised to your room.
Works with BRAVIA CAM
Connect your BRAVIA XR TV with BRAVIA CAM, sold separately, for an even more immersive viewing experience. BRAVIA CAM recognises where you are in the room and how far you are from the TV, then adjusts sound and picture settings so they’re just right. You can also enjoy an array of fun new TV experiences with BRAVIA CAM including gesture controls, video chat and many more.
