TP Vision, owner of Philips television, is releasing a new series of MiniLED televisions this year, in different picture sizes.
The first model in the new “The Xtra” series of TP Vision televisions is the Philips 9308 MiniLED TV, which will be launched in the third quarter of this year in 55″ and 65″ sizes. According to TP Vision, they offer ‘great performance and excellent value for money. Positioned among the Ambilight OLED models, the 9308 continues to offer exceptional picture and sound performance thanks to the 7th generation P5 processor and the addition of a top quality 120 Hz, 98% DCI WCG panel – with an impressive light output of 1,000 nits and a 64W 2.1 Bowers & Wilkins frontal sound system.’
The announcement continues: ‘A unique immersive viewing experience is delivered through the three-sided version of the Ambilight system, while viewers can also enjoy an enhanced and expanded Smart TV experience developed by TP Vision. The premium European design of the television extends to an extra narrow metal frame in a dark anthracite finish, with a thin strip across the bottom of the screen in a brushed black sheen that matches the finish of the open-frame stand. The design is finished with the dark Kvadrat audio blend fabric for the speaker grill’.
A second new ‘The Xtra’ MiniLED set – the Philips 9008 series (pictured at the top of this post) – is also being launched in 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch with the 7th-generation P5, a 120Hz 1000 Nits panel, a powerful 40W 2.0 sound system and anthracite gray legs.
The Philips 9308 and Philips 9008 will be available from fall 2023.
The One continues to deliver top performance
There is more news from TP Vision: ‘The hugely successful ‘The One’ Performance series remains an extremely important part of the Philips Ambilight TV range and will be upgraded in the second quarter of 2023 with two new series – the Philips 8808 and 8508. Both TVs are equipped with the 7th generation P5 processor. ‘The One’ models will continue to offer the comparable performance level, European design and quality – plus key features – of a more premium model, but at an ultra-competitive mid-range price. The 8808 series will be available in 43″, 50″, 55″, 65″, 75″ and 85″ screen sizes, and the 8508 will be available in 43″, 50″, 55′ and 65″‘.
High-quality WCG panels are available in both series with 120Hz for the 8808s and 60Hz for the 8508. The 8508 60Hz panel also features DLG and HRS technology to deliver 4K 120Hz content with smooth motion and, according to the manufacturer, near sharpness of a native 120Hz panel. ‘Both series include three-sided versions of the immersive Ambilight system and the new Google TV OS, plus the more intuitive user interface. The best of European design is evident in both series. The 43″ – 65″ 8808 has a minimal anthracite gray bezel with a brushed effect at the bottom edge of the screen. The swivel EVO stand is also finished in anthracite gray. The 75″ and 85″ versions of the 8808 feature metallic anthracite gray cut-out round legs’, we read in the press release.
The 8508 series has a narrow anthracite gray bezel with a brushed effect at the bottom of the screen and a height-adjustable anthracite metal stand using gray offset sticks.
The Philips 8808 and 8508 will be available starting in May.
