From what I’ve read, it will be more expensive than current models.
Of course it will be even though it’s not seemingly a huge upgrade for what it is. Maybe in a few more years when they can get the OLED’s out of the equation and just go with Quantum Dots then they may have something more worthwhile. These corporations are greedy and they keep testing the consumer to see how much they can get away with charging. So far they get away with murder as I’m seeing it. Sony just keeps resting on it’s laurels and the majority aren’t seeing it. Sony is slowly digging itself a grave though if they keep it up by not competing harder.
I don’t think the industry is the same anymore. Cheap, big sized televisions seem to what the majority of the people want; quality comes in a distant second.
I for one is absolutely thrilled with my cheap big TCL tv. Yes I see the OLED’s at Costco for over $1k but with HDR and Dolby Vision (and Roku built in), you just can’t beat that deal (in my case $499).
The new innovations in OLED screens from LG continue to impress. Now they have these new rollable screens that emerge from a plinth on the floor. Amazing.

The Sony OLEDs are just rebadged LGs, as I'm sure has been said above.
I knew these were coming someday and that TV is very cool... but $100K? Really?? Not that cool!
I'll admit, that's a deal! However, this Sony's upscaling and processing are literally to die for. I've never seen anything like it!
I know! But prices come down pretty fast on LG models. My 77" OLED is now far cheaper than what I paid for it; you can by an 83" 4K model for that price. The 88" 8K model that originally listed for $35,000 can now be had for $25,000. Every year the technology and innovations get better and the prices come down.
When OLED was first announced, the story was that eventually, you would be able to be a portable 65" OLED TV that you could carry a tube and unroll it when you visit someone and tack it to the wall. This roll out TV is getting there but not quite.
And only $100,000! I'll buy 3!
We joke, but here in the bay area all kinds of people with unlimited resources are building their dream homes and wouldn't blink at putting one of these in multiple bedrooms. Then LG takes that money and more of its own to invest in the manufacturing process. Before you know it, rollable OLEDs are affordable and everyone is buying one. Bet they'll also have a ceiling-mounted model that looks like a cornice and descends like a projection screen.
Has anyone else jumped on one of these yet?
The only hiccup I’ve had since setting up the A80J is concerning CEC, the non-standard, unregulated, whatever-the-corporation-thinks control program. I have a six year old Marantz receiver controlled by the Sony (with ARC, not eARC). A couple of times a week, five minutes after turning off the TV (which turns off the AVR), the Marantz will turn back on. Forty seconds later, it turns back off. The TV never turns back on, but it appears it’s looking for something. Odd, but totally manageable.
Otherwise, this TV is absolutely stunning.
I'm constantly in awe of its picture quality with 4K material & upscaled 1080p.
When the 65" came down to $1800 at costco w/ a 5 year warranty included, I had to bite. That's a lot more than I'd want to pay for a set, but after having reliability issues with other brands, I decided it was worth it. I was looking at the LG C1 for that price, but when the A80 dropped $400 to the same price as the C1, I jumped. Best TV I've ever had for sure.
You won't regret it.
