Last year’s Bravia A1 was one of the best-look­ing TVS you could spend your hard-earned cash on – even if it did have a funky flip-out stand that not ev­ery­one was a fan of. Sony’s reined it in a bit this year, turn­ing its at­ten­tion to im­age qual­ity and HDR in­stead. The AF8 gets Dolby Vi­sion sup­port, Google As­sis­tant voice com­mands built in, and im­proved pic­ture-pro­cess­ing tech that could make it the best-per­form­ing OLED TV you’ll see all year. Oh, and it has a sub­tle stand that isn’t quite as bonkers as last year’s A1. Some­times play­ing it safe pays div­i­dends. Sony’s Acous­tic Sur­face sound trick­ery still turns the whole screen into one gi­ant speaker, though – a much cooler al­ter­na­tive to the puny of­fer­ings that sit at the bot­tom of most tel­lies. At the time of writ­ing there’s no word on price or re­lease date, but we have all our fin­gers crossed that it’ll make it onto shelves in time for the World Cup this sum­mer. Whether it’s a Messi masterclass or Gareth’s boys bow­ing out in the first knock­out round, you’ll want to ex­pe­ri­ence it on a screen as fab­u­lous as this. a BBQ on Venus £tba stuff.tv/sonyaf8
