Philips 65OLED873 4K TV Preview
A 65-inch 9002 in all but name
The new Philips 873 is, despite the different serial number, identical to last year's 55POS9002 but uses a 65" panel instead. The 873 combines the P5 picture processing engine and the three-sided Ambilight system, together with an OLED panel. The combination of the 873’s 900nits peak-light performance, wide colour gamut and the P5 picture processing engine allows the set to easily reach and even surpass the standard for UHD Premium certification and Philips’ own exacting HDR Perfect standard - for HDR10, HDR10+ and Hybrid Log-Gamma content. Sound quality is equally impressive thanks to the inclusion of Philips patented and powerful triple ring technology and DTS HD Premium Sound compatibility.
The 873 uses a brushed aluminium open frame and a ‘Cradle’ central stand that creates a floating look. The razor thin chassis and the extremely tight dimensions and fit of the OLED panel, within the super thin narrow bezel, are also attractive design points. The 873 is powered by the Android M Smart TV system and is certified by Google, giving access to all TV orientated apps, services, and content in the Google Play Store. It also comes with two controllers, the first is the familiar dual-sided remote with a QWERTY keyboard and the second is a stripped down version that has been designed for simplified and voice control. The 65" 873 will be available in the UK in the first half of the year, although pricing has yet to be confirmed.
