The Sony A95L is the successor to last year's first QD-OLED TV, the Sony A95K, one of the most talked about TVs of 2022, bringing unparalleled picture quality. This year Sony is bringing upgrades to the A95L to deliver better brightness and image quality.

The A95L uses a new QD-OLED panel, which Sony claims will increase peak brightness by 200% over the A95K. QD-OLED panels increase panel brightness by adding a layer of quantum dots, combining the advantages of electron dots with OLED, while achieving perfect black levels and excellent color.

The A95L adds Sony's heat sink to the QD-OLED panel and then performs a custom thermal analysis with the Cognitive Processor XR to improve efficiency while reducing power consumption.

In addition, Cognitive Processor XR continues to provide picture processing support for TVs. Sony's new XR OLED Contrast Pro, XR Triluminos Max, XR Clear Image, and XR OLED Motion processing help to better improve the quality of images.

The Sony Bravia X95L features mini-LED backlight technology, which serves as the successor to the Sony X95K, with an additional 20% local dimming area. It also features Sony's XR Clear Image feature to help upgrade the picture, improving image clarity while reducing panel flooding.

The 2022 QD-OLED model Sony A95K is a stylish, unique TV, largely due to its unique stand that can be placed in front of or behind the TV. But instead of continuing with this stand, this year's A95L opts for lighter, simpler legs. These legs can be mounted in three ways: in a narrower position, towards the sides, or with the screen raised.

As an OLED TV, the Sony A95L is not particularly thin, due to the fact that it houses the sound system and radiator in its panel. It is available in 55", 65", and 77" size options.

The Sony X95L is beautifully designed and the bezel-less design makes the screen look beautiful. The X95L is available in 65", 75", and 85" sizes, and only the 85" size is available in the US.
