Sony’s new Bravia XBR-A1E OLED TV is a big step for the TV market

It seems rumours about Sony making an OLED TV were true. The Japanese company just announced the XBR-A1E Bravia 4K OLED TV at CES 2017. Sony’s TVs have so far been using its Triluminous Display technology, which is similar to Samsung’s Quantum Dots. However, theoretically, OLED panels should provide much better colours. OLED panels on paper allow nearly true blacks on a television, and infinite contrast ratio.

From what we’ve seen on LG’s OLED TVs so far, the use of this technology should give Sony’s new Bravia a considerable boost in terms of picture quality. In fact, reports say that Sony isn’t actually producing the OLED panels itself, and they’re most likely being sourced from LG Display.

Further, Sony’s television has built in support for Dolby Vision HDR through the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme chip, which is Sony’s in-house processor for 4K HDR picture. This is the same chip that powers Sony’s Z9D HDR television, and we’ve seen the admirable job it does on that TV. However, it is unclear whether Sony’s new OLED TVs will support both Dolby Vision and HDR10 content. It should, theoretically, be possible. We’ve put the question across to Sony and will update this story whenever we hear from them.

Nokia 6 announcement leaves a lot of questions unanswered

Nokia 6 announcement leaves a lot of questions unanswered

We’ve all pictured it. Arto Nummela comes on stage, puts up a slide of all Nokia phones of yore, and then puts an ‘A’ in front of them, signifying that they’re all now on Android. Why not, right? The phones that made Nokia the legend could very well be the ones that bring it back into the market. Right? Right? Wroong.

The first Android phone sold under the Nokia brand is going to be the Nokia 6. We all know that now. The metal clad smartphone that runs on a Snapdragon 430 has received mixed reactions from the public, why? Let’s discuss.

midst all the specifications, you may have missed a crucial bit of information about the Nokia 6. According to HMD Global, the phone has dual-amplifiers that produce dB louder sound than regular amps. That, in our opinion, is a very Nokia thing to do. Such an enhancement can indeed be useful to the user. It may be apparent only when tested side-by-side, but it may also be one of those features that you can’t let go of once you use it.

Nokia’s “legendary” status may end up being an issue in its revival. The company is known for innovation, it is known for making products that others didn’t think of. When people think Nokia, especially one that isn’t aligned with Microsoft, they can’t help but expect something that no one else is giving them. Looking at how saturated the industry is today, that may be a major issue.
