Last year the X90J and the X95J were almost identical TVs with the X95J simply using a more advanced FALD backlight making the distinction between the two models harder for most consumers. Today in our Sony X95K review we are going to test Sony’s new 2022 4K flagships and although it again looks similar to the 2022 X90K there is one fundamental difference this time around. The inclusion of the new mini LED backlight.
Sony didn’t have any mini LED TVs in 2021 so the X95K marks their first try with this more advanced LED LCD backlight. And probably this is why this is also their only mini LED model this year along with the fact that is being offered in sizes 65 ″ and up. In general, the X95K feels like an X90K slapped with a better backlight as everything else is the same so it will be interesting to see how much better it performs.
Looking at the specs the X95K is a 4K TV with a VA panel and a frequency of 120Hz. It uses a mini LED backlight system along with Sony’s best Cognitive Processor XR. At the same time, it comes with all the advanced features Sony has like Acoustic Multi-Audio, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, IMAX Enhanced, HDMI 2.1 ports with VRR, ALLM, and HFR, and Google TV that includes Chromecast, Airplay and voice control among others.
