The first 2020 OLED TVs from Philips are rolling out now in Europe. The OLED805 and OLED855 feature 4K, Ambilight, Android 9.0 and for the first time DTS and Play-Fi. Additional OLED models for 2020 will be unveiled soon.

PHILIPS 2020 OLED TVS:
Like last year, OLED805 and OLED855 and in some regions OLED865 feature 4K Resolution, support for multi-HDR HDR10, HDR10+, HLG and Dolby Vision, Android TV version 9.0, and of course Ambilight.

New major features this year are DTS Play-Fi and an upgraded P5 AI video processor that has been optimised through machine learning to enhance the picture in five areas, the company explained; source, color, contrast, motion and sharpness. We will take a closer look in our upcoming review.

As for DTS Play-Fi integration, the company says that it is the first step towards building a complete wireless connectivity platform. In addition to multiroom music support, DTS Play-Fi lets users connect speakers wirelessly to the TV in up to 5.1 surround sound.

The OLED805, OLED855 and OLED865 are technical identical. The difference lies in design and the table top stand. Another new development worth highlighting is the revamped remote control in leather with backlit buttons.

The New OLED TVs From Philips Will Compete Head to Head With OLED TVs From LG, Sony, Panasonic And Other TV Brands in Europe.

GOOGLE, DOLBY & B&W PARTNERSHIPS:
The new OLED TVs from Philips will compete head to head with OLED TVs from LG, Sony, Panasonic and other TV brands in Europe.

Sony and Philips have both embraced Google’s Android TV platform that offers access to apps via the Play Store whereas LG is positioning its OLED TVs as console friendly by including HDMI 2.1 ports, and Panasonic has a customized, high brightness OLED panel in its flagship model.

Besides its partnerships with Google and Dolby, Philips has partnered with Bowers & Wilkins. These 8 Series OLED TVs will not come equipped with B&W speakers but the company has teased that it will soon unveil additional 2020 models with B&W speakers.

We expect to hear more in early September during IFA 2020. Philips OLED 8×5 models are rolling out now in Europe and will be more widely available in a few weeks.

Written by: Rasmus Larsen –


2020 LCD models from Philips are rolling out now in Europe. The new mid-range TVs feature Ambilight, 4K and DTS Play-Fi. They run either Android or Saphi.

PHILIPS 2020 LCD TVS:
In Philips’ 2020 line-up you get Ambilight from PUS7805 and up, and Android TV from PUS8505 and up. The more affordable models run the company’s own Saphi platform, which has a different selection of streaming apps.

The new LCD TVs launching now are mid-range models. An upgraded version of ‘The One’ (PUS8505) TV comes with all of the essential features of a modern TV, said Philips.

A new feature this year is DTS Play-Fi from PUS8505 and up, which lets you connects compatible speakers wirelessly to the TV. In addition, it lets you connect a Philips TV to a DTS-powered multiroom system.

The TVs also support Dolby Atmos audio from apps such as Netflix, which can be transmitted to a sounder or receiver via HDMI.

Philips Will Soon Introduce New High-End 9 Series LCD TVs.

HIGH-END LCD TVS COMING LATER:
Besides the new 7 and 8 series LCD TVs, Philips will soon introduce new high-end 9 series LCD TVs, including PUS9005 that reintroduces 4-sided Ambilight. The mood lighting system can be extended through Philips Hue. Ambilight also offers game and music modes.

Due to the market situation and dearth of content, the company is taking wait-and-see approach to 8K. All of the new mid-range models feature 4K resolution. A low-end 6 series model with HD resolution will be introduced only in select markets. Philips is not alone is in phasing out HDTVs.

The upcoming 9 series TVs will also feature Bowers & Wilkins speakers. We expect to hear more about the plans in early September at an online event. Usually, Philips would unveil its latest TVs at the IFA show in Berlin but IFA is more or less cancelled this year due to coronavirus.

The 2020 LCD TVs from Philips are rolling out now in Europe, with the 9 series models expected this autumn.

Philips Hue Box Gains Support For Dolby Vision and HDR10+

Date: 29 May 2020

Written by: Rasmus Larsen

The Philips Hue Sync box that lets you sync Philips Hue lights to the action on-screen now works with Dolby Vision and HDR10+ content. The update also adds support for voice assistants.

Philips Hue Sync Box updated

The ‘Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box’ was launched in February 2019 but at the time it lacked support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+, meaning that it could not produce any light effects from a HDMI signal with Dolby Vision or HDR10+ passed through it.

The latest update adds just that.

From now onwards you can enjoy synchronized surround lighting effects from your Philips Hue lights when watching Dolby Vision or HDR10+ content with compatible TVs, the company announced.

Not all devices are compatible:

However, be aware that not all TVs and playback devices are supported, seemingly due to variances in Dolby Vision profiles. A list of compatible devices is included in the table at the bottom. The software update also adds support for popular voice assistants, including Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple Siri. This lets you power on/off, start or stop light sync, switch HDMI, and switch between sync modes via voice commands to an external compatible device. Lastly, the box can now be configured to work with infrared commands from your TV remote control or Harmony universal remote. The software update is free and can be installed via the Hue Sync mobile app. The Philips Hue HDMI Sync is available for 230 dollars in the US and 250 Euro in Europe from meethue.com.

Philips Hue Sync – Compatible Dolby Vision devices:

TV models that support Dolby Vision from these brands have been tested:

TVs:
LG – Only 2017 and later
Sony – All
Vizio – All
TCL – 2018 and later
Panasonic – All
Philips – All

The following HDMI Sources that support Dolby Vision have been tested:

Sources:
Apple TV 4K – Yes
FireTV 4K – Yes
Chromecast Ultra – Yes
Nvidia Shield (2019 models) – Yes
Xbox One S/X (only apps) – Yes
Blu-ray players – No
