Sony KE48A9 48″ OLED 4K Television with Android TV

The processor that brings the best out of OLED’s beauty
The same powerful processor used to drive our 8K1 TVs precisely analyses image data to bring out the intense contrast of OLED with pure blacks, peak brightness and truly realistic pictures.

Sound and picture in harmony – the screen is the speaker
By having the screen act as the speaker, sound and picture work perfectly together with sound coming from the right place on the screen for a more cinematic experience.

One slate design concept, incredibly thin
With our super slim one slate design, the screen meets the edge of the TV, immersing you in the picture without distraction.

Object-based HDR remaster
With Object-based HDR remaster, the colour in individual objects on screen is analysed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures and more realistic pictures.

Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colours
By widening the colour spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colours than a conventional television. It analyses and processes data in every image to make colours even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.

Sound flows around you with Dolby Atmos®
Be surrounded by sound as if you are right there in the scene. With Dolby Atmos, sound comes from above as well as from the sides so you can hear objects moving overhead with more realism for a truly multi-dimensional experience.

Narrow metal bezel
Keeps you focused on the picture, not the television.

Flexible Metal Blade Stand, sound bar ready
The direction of this versatile stand can be adjusted so your TV display won’t disturb your viewing, even when used with a sound bar.

Cable clutter minimised
Cable holders keep wires neatly hidden so your television stays free of clutter and looks good from the front, the sides and the back.

Over 5000 apps, more than any other smart TV
Sony’s Android Smart TV has an unbeatable number of apps. Choose the ones that make your life more fun and entertaining.

No more waiting
Apps start fast and there’s no more waiting when you switch between apps – Netflix starts 3x faster than before.

Enjoy studio quality with Netflix Calibrated Mode
This mode was specially developed to enjoy Netflix originals and reproduce the same picture quality on a TV as on a studio evaluation master. With Netflix Calibrated Mode, the creator’s vision and intent is faithfully preserved.

Control your TV and smart devices with your voice
You can ask your TV with the Google Assistant to connect and communicate with your smart devices including security cameras and appliances. It’s truly effortless and offers the ultimate experience.

Connect with your Alexa
Connect your Alexa enabled devices for seamless hands-free control of a Sony TV. With Alexa, you can power up your TV, change channels, control volume and more.

Works with Google Home
Connect Google Home for seamless hands-free control of a Sony TV. With Google Home, you can find and cast your favourite videos to your Sony TV, without lifting a finger.

Works with Apple AirPlay / Apple HomeKit12
With Apple AirPlay, you can stream video and audio to your television right from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Watch movies and shows from the Apple TV app, your favourite apps, or even Safari. Share your photos with everyone in the room.

Easy control with smart remote
Connect set top boxes and other devices via HDMI to your OLED Smart TV and control them all using one smart commander. A slimmer, more rounded design with built-in voice control microphone and enhanced button layout makes it really easy to use too.

Preserving the passion of the creators
To address colour variations from the production process, this TV is ready to use Portrait Displays’ high-performance CalMAN® auto-calibration software. This allows an unprecedented level of calibration and the ability to fine tune adjustments simply not possible through conventional picture settings. It delivers high-fidelity colour reproduction that’s true to the original TV signal and can even adapt to the subtlest changes in colour that may occur over time. This TV is CalMAN® ready, allowing customers to benefit from software used by visual creators in post-production, quality-control workflows, further demonstrating our commitment to deliver pictures with professional-grade colour calibrated accuracy in the home.

Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, the screen is the speaker. An innovative actuator vibrates discreetly to create sound so what you hear comes from the place in the scene where the action is happening – dialogue from characters, engine noise from a car – rather than from speakers at the sides.

BRAVIA™ uses a powerful computer model to analyse and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response. It does this by ‘sampling’ the speaker frequency with higher precision. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker’s natural response – resulting in pure, natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.
