Color, clarity and detail at their best
The W850A displays everything you watch – HD movies, sports, YouTube clips and home movies – in clarity and detail so real it’s like looking through a window. Sony’s X-Reality Pro engine restores images to their original beauty with rich colors and high contrast for our most lifelike picture ever.
More brilliant color than
See a wider range and more brilliant colors than ever with Sony's unique TRILUMINOS display, giving you our most authentic viewing experience ever. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid, while faces look better with more natural skin tones.
Moves like real life
Golf balls roll clearly, with less blurring, as the camera follows them across the green. Footballs retain their detail and move smoothly as the camera pans quickly during a kickoff. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic. Motionflow XR 480 takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to double the motion effect for lifelike clarity.
The difference is dynamic
It's all about perfecting a natural look. Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with local dimming displays your movies and shows with tremendous accuracy and detail, especially in dark scenes where details tend to get lost. Contrast boost in just the right areas creates pitch-black night scenes and bright scenes that pop with vibrant color.

|Sound that’s all around you |
Whether you’re watching movies, live concerts, drama or sports – enjoy rich, dynamic sound from your TV speakers that feels like it’s filling the room. Unique to Sony, S-Force Front Surround technology processes audio signals to create an immersive, finely detailed soundstage that pulls you right into the heart of the action. An enlarged ‘sweet spot’ lets you enjoy optimum audio reproduction, even if you’re not sitting dead-center right in front of the TV screen. It’s the perfect way to enhance your viewing experience, with sound you might expect from a dedicated multi-channel surround sound system.
Your smartphone, now on TV
Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the W850A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own.
1. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally “mirror” what’s seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it’s charging from the TV5.
2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast enabled to the TV2.
3. Using One-touch mirroring with NFC technology, briefly place your compatible Xperia smartphone to the one-touch remote. You’ll instantly be able to view exactly what is on your smartphone’s screen on the TV6.
