Just how 'mini' are these mini-LEDs supposed to be?

1000 zones on a 16:9 screen is about 42 x 24 zones. A 65" panel is about 1800 sq in, so each zone is nearly 2 square inches in area.

No LED is made that size; they're all a small light source with an optical diffuser to spread the light out.

Provided adjacent zones blur together seamlessly I can well believe that the end result looks good with most content - but where's the innovation here? What's been achieved that's new?
These tv's also come with quantum dot (more colour volume) and I read wide viewing angle and higher brightness than all tv's before from philips

Both Mini LED models will have a VA panel, more info here.



As it looks they will also have a wide viewing angle filter, similar like Samsung and Sony have on their highest FALD models.
Thanks for confirming.

can't find any true 10bit panels with matching specs at 75". not sure if worth paying premium for 8bitfrc panel with some leds behind it :(

Yes. The specs are really impressive. It will be interesting to see first reviews and compare with LG QNed/ Samsung Neo. I hope Philips is improved in overall quality.

Specs are one thing and real world performance another. Philips is usually overdoing it with their specs and what's with their weird point system, when they rate their own TV's with points. I remember in 2017 or 2018 when their more expensive TV's which were rated with more points had worse picture than their lower class TV's because higher class had IPS panels while lower VA. We will have to wait for some review first, I don't trust Philips anymore.

Also I think Philips is pretty bad when it comes to DSE and banding, I haven't yet seen a TV by them without DSE or banding, this TV can be best LCD ever but if they won't improve DSE and banding it will spoil the whole experience.

Absolutely right, philips just uses marketing tricks and probably monetizes reviewers not to disclose downsides flooding search engines with positives. So a lot of info on internet is just part of philips sell strategy. I have only seen few professional honest reviews with all tech details disclosed pointing to issues within their tv's and panels in them.
Things like "wide angle" is open to debate of each understanding of it. How wide angle VA panel can be? How do I know that angle suits my environment and I got what's been advertised? As example LG is quite informative on its kit so that user can select what best suits him.

Utterly pointless pricing a 65 mini led the same as an oled.. I know which I'd buy and it wouldn't have lights behind it.

OLED has come down in price and the big number FALD LEDs are still pricey to make. Something like 1000zones on a decent VA panel has the potential to be very good, higher brightness/no burn in etc. It has it's place.

My Samsung Q9 is almost OLED like in dark room, with much less zones than 1000. In fact, on Netflix's initial user menu it is always surprises me how it is way brighter against the black background than my OLED yet suppresses blooming. I'm not saying brightness is everything, but the reason we like OLED so much is how it can display bright objects set against a black background, and the Samsung Q9 does this very well in 99% of cases.
