This week Phillips has added three new 4K Ultra HD TVs to its range in the of form of the Philips 8900, Philips 9100 and Philips 7900.
The Philips 8900 4K Ultra HD 55-inch curved TV is powered by Android and uses Philips’ three-sided Ambilight and micro dimming technology to adapt the viewing experience to your room as well as providing high-quality upscaling and a 1000 Hz refresh rate.
“The Philips 8900 TV has a 139cm (55’’) curved display that stands on a new ‘ribbon stand’. This creates a bold look, which is enhanced by the high-quality polished chrome finish. 3-sided Ambilight complements the outstanding appearance of the 8900 series. Ambilight is now capable of following really fast moving scenes in action and sports games.
All Philips 4K Ultra HD TVs powered by Android – including the Philips 8900 – are certified by Google. This means that they have access to all apps, services, and content in the Google Play Store that are suitable for TVs. This app and service offering is provided on top of the existing Philips Smart TV portfolio.”
Phillips has also taken the wraps off their new Philips Media Player UHD 880 which has been created to provide users with a Android powered box that provides support for the new HEVC streaming format (aka H.265) as well as applications, games and other goodies available from the store.
The Philips Media Player UHD 880 (pictured below) will cost around €249 when it launches next year and comes fitted with a HDMI 2.0 output, USB connection and wireless and Ethernet LAN connectivity.
Unfortunately no information on pricing has been released as yet but the three new models will be launching in Europe sometime in the current quarter. As soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
