Sony officially announce A95K QD-OLED $3,000 start price

Last Updated:

After much excitement, Sony has finally unveiled the official pricing for its 2022 lineup of TVs, including the brand’s hugely anticipated QD-OLED A95K TV.

The Sony A95K will launch in the US in the next couple of months, priced at $3,000 for the 55-inch variant and $4,000 for the 65-inch. Canadian consumers won’t have to wait quite as long, with pre-orders now live with expected arrivals sometime this month (May). Despite UK pricing still yet to surface, a price leak from John Lewis has suggested a £2,699 starting price – lining up nicely with the US official price announcement.

Alongside the A95K, Sony also unveiled its Mini-LED TV pricing for North America, including the impressive 8K Master Series Z95K which will start from an eye-watering $6.999 (75-inch).

Of course, there’s more to Sony’s 2022 TV lineup than the A95K and Z95K.

Below we have listed the complete Sony 2022 TV pricing, including all new models and sizes:

Sony Master Series A95K QD-OLED TV

Sony X95K 4K Mini LED TV

Let the QD-OLED price war commence

Let’s not forget that Sony’s A95K is not the only QD-OLED option available right now. Despite Samsung not marketing its S95B as a QD-OLED TV, it most certainly is – and a much cheaper one at that.

Like the Sony A95K, the Samsung S95B will also come in 55-inch and 65-inch sizes. However, despite offering up similar specifications, the Samsung S95B will be considerably cheaper than its Sony counterpart.

The S95B will hit shelves with a start price of $2,200 for the 55-inch variant – $800 cheaper than the A95K. The 65-inch, by contrast, widens that gap even further, with the Samsung retailing for $1,000 cheaper than the 65-inch A95K.

Of course, we’ll be completing thorough reviews on both TVs once available, and it’ll be interesting to see how Sony justifies the hike in price.

Sony A95K QD-OLED specifications

For those stumbling across this piece, the Sony A95K is one of the market’s first QD-OLED TVs – a new technology that bids to merge the best qualities of both QD (Quantum Dot) and OLED (Organic Light-emitting diode). The new flagship TV from Sony will come to shelves in 55-inch and 65-inch variants to start, however, with Samsung announcing the start of mass production of 49″ and 77″ QD-OLED panels, we could see that lineup extended next year.

While this TV seems to be marketed to the general consumer, gamers will be pleased to hear that it will feature a bunch of game-tailored features – including HDMI 2.1 support, [email protected] gameplay, and VRR support for next-gen consoles.

Of course, the brand’s 20222 OLED-based TVs seem the best choice for gamers, with the A90K hitting shelves in 42-inch and 48-inch variants – pitting it against the already popular LG OLED C2 series.
