Enjoy Your Favorite Content with Rich Colors and Detailed Contrast
The 4K HDR Processor X1 powers the X85J TV to deliver a picture that is full of rich colors and detailed contrast. Complemented by a multitude of advanced features, such as TRILUMINOS Pro (providing a wider spectrum of color), Motionflow XR (for smooth and clear action), and 4K X-Reality PRO (which enhances anything you watch to near-4K quality). Enjoy your favorite content just as the creators intended, powered by the 4K HDR Processor X1.
Advanced Color and Gradation
By widening the color spectrum, TRILUMINOS Pro, powered by the 4K HDR Processor X1, reproduces more colors than a conventional television. It analyzes and processes data in every image to make colors even more natural and precise, so picture quality is closer than ever to real life. See exactly what the creator intended with the advanced color and gradation of TRILUMINOS Pro.
The Entertainment You Love, with Help from Google

Searching is easy – just ask Google. Press the Google Assistant button on the remote and try saying "find action movies" to search across your favorite apps.
Smooth and Clear, Even in Fast Scenes
Enjoy smooth and sharp details even in fast-moving sequences with Motionflow XR. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones. It compares key visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of missing action in the sequences. Some models also include black-frame insertion for a blur-free and truly cinematic look.
Upscale Everything You Watch
See glorious 4K pictures, rich with real-world detail and texture, powered by the 4K HDR Processor X1. Even content filmed in Full HD are upscaled close to 4K resolution by 4K X-Reality PRO using a unique 4K database.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture is the way TV was always meant to be watched. Ultra-high resolution and HDR video content combine to bring dazzling detail, color, and contrast to everything you watch, while keeping a far wider range of brightness.

Sony X85J Reviews

Overly Complicated.

Setup is overly complicated and takes too long. Still haven’t figured out how to tie to Alexia or why it wants to act as an Apple TV.

Great pictures

I have a receiver that drives my speaker system which uses RCA (White/Red) input. Can I use any of the TV's HDMI ports to provide audio out (with converter of course) while watching TV content?
Asked by: Joseph
No. But you can go from the optical audio output on the TV into your receiver using a Gefen digital to analog converter (BH #GECDAAA).
