OLED panels deliver perfect black levels, vivid colors, and exceptional contrast ratios.The new Alpha 9 Gen 5 AI processors will help further increase luminance through a smarter algorithm and better heat dissipation.

Each person using the TV can set up their own favorites and content recommendations. The company says users will watch cable and satellite content on two television sets without an extra set-top box.

A new Dark Room Mode will adjust the screen brightness depending on the lighting in the environment. The G2 series will consist of 55-, 65- 75-inch models.
