A bit backwards that there flagship model only goes to a 65" screen and the model below the flagship can go to a 75" screen !!

Thank you Steve
Am I right in assuming:
- no fald lcd like last year (8210)
- none is reaching 1000 nits or certified premium uhd
- no va panel

Can you kindly confirm if brightness of panel increased on last year? Sound the same to me as last year...(just improved by better processing like LG potentially)

Thank you for keeping us so well updated and enjoy Amsterdam

Are the LCD models going to support HLG especially with some models having the P5 engine.
Yes they will support HLG and the models with P5 will also support HDR10+.

Philips used to be a very good and common brand in the UK, but now? As @High Fidelity says, I have never seen them in stores.
Do they distribute just through specialised stores or just on the Internet?

The current 8102 FALD is marketed as Micro Dimming Premium.

Is that better or worse than the 75 inch 8303 with Micro Dimming Perfect, or the 7803 and 7303 series' Micro Dimming Pro? Your guess is as good as mine...

The 8000 Series use IPS panels, edge lighting (apart from the 75-inch version) and don't appear to have Ultra HD Premium certification. The 7000 and 6000 series use VA panels and have direct LED backlighting but no local dimming zones as far as I can tell.

The 7 and 6 series could be interesting fald if they add local dimming
Seen 400 nits peak quoted which seems very low for lcd
Good Lcd not a big priority for Philips apparently. Shame as they had a promising lcd from last year combining fald ( just add quantum dot). 8102 was certified premium. Missed opportunity really

Ridiculous number of new models, I never see Philips TVs in any major store, how are they going to sell them, I would not buy a Philips TV, IMO Ambilight is nonsense.
Ambilight is brilliant!! Though I guess Dreamscreen will do the same job on any TV.

Always had a soft spot for Philips in general and their TVs (even after new owner as R&D/staff still Philips employees). Their software is always trouble, but the picture quality, motion and sound are always top rate, design usually nice too.
@Cliff They're in Argos, Very/Littlewoods and Amazon. They should really get into JL, Currys, etc...

@Steve Withers Great to see them being open about the panel types (if only Sony, Samsung and Panasonic could do the same!) - any word on when Sony and Panasonic will make full 2018 detailed announcements?

Oled looks good especially the entry model one. Let’s hope it reaches uk this year

As for lcd, someone should have told Philips that a flagship lcd needs at least 1000 nits and fald. 400 nits as top brightness is simply a joke in 2018!!!

Anyone bought a TV Philips in Europe and used it in uk.
Beside the difference in plugs, anyone knows if the uk apps will work standard?
Thanks in advance

So will the direct lit ones like the 50PU6703 have less clouding and better uniformity then the edge lit 50PUS6272?

I don’t see why not. You could ask on the Philips support forum.

I see that the 8102 (2017 FALD) is listed on BBC iplayer website as being compatible with iplayer 4K, even though this model is not sold in UK sadly. So UK apps must work ??

According to the .ro and .fi Philips websites the PUS6703 has 6400 dimming zones.

Google Translate
That is not what it says? It says the picture is analyzed in 6400 sections ...

"The picture technology in the 55PUS7101 is built around a native UHD LCD panel illuminated by an edge LED lighting system. There’s no local dimming, although the TV does benefit from something called “Micro Dimming Pro”. This breaks the image down into thousands of zones for analysis by the TV’s processing engines, to deliver more accurate and measured results. The system also works hand in hand with a light sensor to add a degree of room condition optimisation to the picture output." Philips 55PUS7101 Review | Trusted Reviews

Looks like prices have been released for the 2018 LCD's - just to confirm, all Philips LCDs this years are indeed EDGE lit and not FALD?
Not "all" models are edge LED but there are no FALD models no. There are direct LED models without local dimming ... (according to the Toengel site).

Thanks for that input, I recon I might simply wait for first reviews on the new 8000 LED series vs. the 803 OLED...
