Amazon Prime Day this year is taking place over the course of two days, January 21 and 22.
OLED TVs are considered among the most desirable televisions on the market. And while the TVs have always been known for being expensive, there are some attractive deals available on OLED TVs, especially from Sony.
According to USA Today, there are several such offers available on Prime Day for Sony OLED TVs. For instance, the 48-inch Sony Bravia XBR-48A9S is available for $1,298, a $200 discount from the normal price.
There are also discounts available for the Sony A80J TV line. The 55-inch A80J OLED TV is available for $1,698 ($201.99 off), and the 65-inch A80J OLED is going for $2,198 ($301.99 off the regular price.)
Meanwhile, per the newspaper, there’s one big discount available for a top 2021 LG OLED TV. The 65-inch LG C1 OLED TV is going for $2,096.99, a discount of more than $400.
According to the current rankings on RTINGS, the Sony A80J is the seventh-best TV currently available, while the LG C1 is the sixth-best. The Sony A90J is the top-ranked model among 2021 TVs, while the LG C1 ranks second, and the Sony A80J third.
Sony announced its XR line, which includes several OLED models, at CES back in January. The main models available in the 2021 line are the MASTER Series Z9J 8K LED, MASTER Series A90J and A80J OLED, and X95J and X90J 4K LED.
“Sony’s goal is to offer viewers the best and most immersive experience—authentically delivering the creator’s true intent,” Mike Fasulo, the president, and chief operating officer of Sony Electronics, Inc., said at the time of the line launch. “Our new BRAVIA CORE technology and the XR lineup take the industry to the next level with a powerful, cinematic experience, enabled by the world’s first TVs with cognitive processors.”
“Enjoy breathtaking OLED contrast with picture quality that feels deep, natural, and real,” Sony’s website said of the XR picture. “Our revolutionary processor uses human perspective analysis to cross-analyze and optimize hundreds of thousands of elements in the blink of an eye. Combined with our unique OLED panel, this technology delivers truly lifelike picture quality with ultimate pure blacks.”
The 2020 edition of Prime Day was delayed from its usual date until the fall, due to the pandemic. Once it finally happened, third-party sellers took in $3.5 billion. That successful Prime Day was part of Amazon’s massively successful 2020, as the pandemic led to a rush towards more e-commerce and huge profits for the company.
