The Sony Bravia XF80 (X800F in the US), the successor of the Sony Bravia X800E, will be one of the new addition to Sony’s mid-range 4K UHD HDR tv lineup for 2018. It’s an LCD type of TV with a built-in Android OS that offers access to video streaming, games, and other types of apps. Chromecast is also integrated within this TV allowing you to cast your videos to the TV from your mobile device that supports either Miracast, Chromecast, or Intel WiDi. Compared to the high-end model, the XF80 doesn’t come with Sony X1 Extreme processor and it lacks a twin tuner.

In terms of design, the Bravia X800F or XF80 features an aluminium finish bezel and a stand that lets you hide the cables and hold them in place with an included cable holder.

Compared to the XF85, the main difference is that the XF80 features a non-aluminium frame and a 50Hz display panel while the XF85 has an aluminium frame and 100Hz display panel.
