Access all your favourite content on this Android TV, and search just by using your voice with the new aluminium Voice Remote, all framed in a narrow bezel and our premium narrow blade stand.
See the beauty with more colour, contrast and clarity
The X1™ Processor is the power behind this 55 inch TV's realistic 4K HDR picture. It enhances the colour, contrast and clarity of what you watch giving you more depth, a more natural texture and more vibrant colours.
This works with Sony's 4K X-Reality ProTM technology which uses a unique database to upscale images even closer to 4K resolution*, resulting in glorious images full of life-like colour and contrast.
Be immersed in vivid, real world colour
By widening the colour spectrum, our TRILUMINOSTM Display (powered by our X1 processor™) reproduces more colours than a conventional television. This technology analyses and processes the data in every image to deliver pictures that are more natural, precise, and closer to real life
Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos
With Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, the KD-55XH8196 provides a cinematic Dolby experience. The Picture Quality is perfectly adjusted for stunning colours, bright highlights and deep dark blacks. And Dolby Audio provides an immersive audio experience to draw you into the action.
Clear, multidimensional sound
Our new X-BalancedTM speaker*, innovatively designed to complement the sound quality and slimness of the XH81, produces high quality, multidimensional sound.
*only available on 55" models and above
