Sony Is Introducing 'Ready for PlayStation 5' Bravia TVs

From PC Mag: To take full-advantage of the features offered by the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, there's a good chance you need a new TV. Sony knows this, and so the company is launching new Bravia models that are clearly marked as "Ready for PlayStation 5."

As Gamespot reports, so far two new Sony Bravia models have been announced, carrying the model names Z90H and Z8H. We know that the next-gen consoles support HDR, but they will also offer 120Hz refresh rates at up to 4K resolution and a low-latency mode. In order to enjoy all those features, you need a TV with both HDR and a HDMI 2.1 port.

Both of Sony's new Bravia models offer those, but the Z90H is expected to be more limited than the Z8H. Based on what the existing Bravia X90H offers, we should expect 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch model options. However, while all three offer HDR and 120Hz refresh rates, the refresh rate is limited to 60Hz at 4K resolution, so you can only use 120Hz for 1080p gaming. This seems like an oversight by Sony, so hopefully the information is wrong and the Z90H will offer 120Hz at 4K. The Bravia Z8H is actually an 8K TV, but it will offer both HDR and 120Hz refresh rates at 4K, making it the preferred choice for PS5 owners who want the best quality output (if they can afford it).
