My local sony marketing representative asia-pacific tells me that sony will release:
X900G/X90G -->which is the successor to the X900F/X90F.
X950G/X95G----> which is the combined successor to the X930E/X940E. X930e had higher peak brightness and X940e had better blooming control. This new model combines both and will be powered by the X1 Ultimate.
Z9G/ZG9----->which is the successor to Z9D/ZD9 (not the ZF9).It has backlight master drive like the D and has a native 8K screen. Available in 85 and 98" sizes and both will be really expensive.
A9G---->Oled successor to the A9F.
All these tv's will release in the first half of 2019.
Only the Z9G/ZG9 out of all these models will have hdmi 2.1, rest all will be hdmi 2.0b.
I am being told that there might be a couple of new tv's released in september by sony which will have hdmi 2.1 and starting next year in 2020, most sony tv's will shift to hdmi 2.1.
So people who want to secure their tv purchase for the next few years, unless buying the Z9G, would be better advised to wait a little, till september or early next year, you will get a future proof tv with hdmi 2.1 by waiting. If you don't care about 2.1, then sure you can buy from these models.
