Seeing how quickly LG and Sony 77" OLEDs dropped makes me regret my 85" Samsung Q90T purchase a bit ($3,600 through Greentoe). Yes, I get an extra 8", but the Samsung HDMI issues and UI in general are frustrating, and Dolby Vision would be nice.

OP listed the same model number twice... I'm assuming that's a typo

The biggest difference is that the CX supports nearly all HDMI 2.1 features, while the Sony is limited to HDMI 2.0 (although it does support eARC) - which is not really a huge deal unless gaming is important to you (in which case, get the CX or a C9). Other than that, the LG has a 22 point white balance adjustment option and separate adjustment settings for both SDR/HDR10+HLG/Dolby Vision, while the Sony is 10 point and SDR/HDR share the same WB settings - so if you calibrate the display professionally, you might be able to get slightly better shadow detail from CX, but that is really getting into the weeds. Most professional reviewers seems to give Sony the nod for better motion, but performance is close enough that I wouldn't really put too much stock in that. I also want to say that the LGs tend to have higher peak brightness in HDR, the Sonys are more conservative in allowing the panel to torch your eyes, around 700-800 nits for the LG CX/C9/WX/E9 (the B9/BX have lower peak brightness, around 500 nits) vs 600 nits for the A9G.

End of the day, though, the 2019/2020 LG and Sony OLED are all excellent TVs.

Wonder if Sony will release a 2020 model 77" OLED or if we'll have to wait for the 2021.

So if I'm getting a ps5 I should opt for the LG because of the HDMI 2.1 support?

it was a typo, the last model should have been the 55" but it will not let me edit the post for some reason.

This is the current top tier Sony OLED. The A9 "H" does not exist yet and has not been announced.

IMO the Sony outperforms the LG when watching movies and definitely with motion. I have compared the 2 side by side with the same source at the same time split between the 2 TV's. Again, this is my opinion, but the rest of the people preset for this test also gave the Sony the win by a slight margin for pure picture quality.

Yep, 100% I would recommend getting a set with HDMI 2.1 (LG or otherwise) if you are in the market for a new TV and want to game on either of the next gen consoles. HDMI 2.1 adds variable refresh rate, auto low latency mode, and can do 4K@120Hz (at 4K resolutions, 2.0 is limited to 60Hz, although it's also worth mentioning that the 2.0 spec is capable of 1080P@120Hz).

This is now a 2+ year old model. The are some features definitely missing that the next model will have. I would've bought this a year ago, but today the new model is around the corner and there's a reason why these have been going on sale lately.

Even if 2.1 supportss higher frame rate. Gpu in Ps5 wont avg AAA games in 4k specially with bigger screens. I probably doubt even next ps6 would avg 120fps in 4k in these tvs.. Unless you play minecraft or some sort
