Sony Bravia XR-55X90J specifications and features
The Sony Bravia XR-55X90J is a 55-inch Ultra-HD (3840x2160-pixel) LED TV with Sony's Triluminos technology, which is similar to the quantum dot technology used on televisions marketed as QLED TVs.

The TV also has full-array local dimming, HDMI 2.1, a peak refresh rate of 120Hz at Ultra-HD resolution, auto low-latency mode, and variable refresh rate.

Touted as the world's first TV with cognitive intelligence, the Sony Bravia XR-55X90J is powered by the XR Cognitive Processor. This allows the TV to detect the focal point - that is, the most important element or zone in a particular frame - and enhance the picture quality exactly where it predicts the viewer's focus is. The picture quality is thus claimed to be more natural looking and memorable, according to Sony.
The television is among the first to run on the Google TV user interface, which is the spiritual successor to the stock Android TV UI and was first introduced on the Google Chromecast With Google TV. There is also access to Google Assistant and Alexa voice assistants, Google Chromecast built-in, as well as support for Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple HomeKit for screen mirroring and IoT connectivity respectively.
