TP Vision details Philips TV plans for 2016
PUS9600 is missing in action
TP Vision has outlined the key developments for the first half 2016 Philips TV product range with the full line-up to be revealed at a special launch event in Brussels in February.
TP Vision has confirmed that the flagship 8601 and 8901 AmbiLux sets will move from limited to full distribution by mid-January but, curiously, there is absolutely no mention of the delayed 65PUS9600 which we were told was being held up until the HDR specs were finalised. Well, that moment has come already, yet still no 9600. Let’s hope they’re saving it for the event in February.
Moving on, a new 6000 UHD and 7000 UHD series will be launched in the first quarter all featuring new higher spec panels, Android TV with extended storage and with Three-sided Ambilight now available throughout the 7000 range and the majority of the 6000 range.
Sound will also be premium quality with high power outputs and Philips unique double and triple ring speaker technology featuring in both the 6000 and 7000 ranges. The 7000 range will also be the new entry level for HDR capable performance.
The 5000 Full HD series sets will also feature upgraded picture and sound quality, plus improved Android TV performance and will be available for the first time with slim-line aluminium bezels and stands. Available in the first quarter 2016, the 5000 series will include the new 24” multi-function 5211 set as a range highlight, combining the functionality of a monitor, a TV and a dedicated high quality Bluetooth speaker into the one product that’s designed for the living room, kitchen or bedroom.
A wide range of Full HD small screen and large screen models will be available in the new 4000 series also available in the first quarter
