If you happen to be in the market for a brand new, top-of-the-line television, you may want to bookmark Sony’s webstore. The Japanese giant has always been ahead of the curve, but a particular product of theirs is shaping up to be the piece de resistance. Earlier this week, Sony unveiled their upcoming Master Series Z9G, and the fresh flat screen is already a marvel in home technology.

While most of us are still getting accustomed to 4K resolutions, the Z9G comes armed with a powerful 8K display that promises to show off near lifelike images. If that wasn’t enough to pique your interest, the company is raising the stakes with even more bells and whistles.

On top of the impressive 8K feature, Sony is throwing in a ton of flashy additions to the Z9G including an impressive IMAX display, and Dolby Vision and Atmos sound capabilities. Currently, Sony plans to drop a 85-inch model, or if you’re hoping for a full theatrical experience, you can choose an upgraded 98-inch version. Of course, all of this doesn’t come without a hefty price tag.

Your pockets better be full if you’re looking to pick up one of these Z9Gs, because the retail price for these bad boys varies between $13,000 and $70,000 USD depending on the size of the screen. If you’re willing to shell that kind of money out, be sure to keep your eyes glued to Sony’s webstore here for updates on an official release date.
