Philips has put the small dishes in the big ones with its latest Oled + televisions which are announced – on paper – like an excellent vintage. Philips Oled TVs were so far flawless in terms of image quality, both in SDR and HDR, but the manufacturer had abandoned video games a bit, bypassing HDMI 2.1 and offering a delay in fairly average display (around 32 ms on the Philips 55OLED805). These new Philips OLED936 and 986 models feature the new Oled LG Display panel which can display up to 20% brightness (called Oled Evo at LG), HDMI 2.1 (4K / 120 Hz, VRR, eARC), a new technology to avoid marking, a Bowers & Wilkins audio system and still the Ambilight ambient lighting system which is the originality of Philips televisions.
Philips OLED936: 48, 55 and 65 inches
In the 55 (140 cm) and 65 inch (165 cm) version, the Philips OLED 936 features the brighter Oled LG Display panel, which is also found on the LG 65G1 and the Sony XR-65A90J. The 48-inch model retains a classic Oled panel since the new one is not yet available in this size. The OLED936 uses the new Philips P5 Dual Chip processor made up of two separate video processing chips for better rendering.
The big news is HDMI 2.1 compatibility, including 4K 120Hz, VRR, and eARC. Philips announces that the display delay now drops to 8ms in 4K VRR and 12ms in 1080p. These televisions are also compatible with AMD FreeSync Premium and Nvidia G-Sync. The latter was until now reserved for LG televisions. This shows how much Philips is now interested in gamers. Like the 2020 models, these TVs support all current HDR formats (HDR10, HDR10 +, Dolby Vision, HLG).
If Philips already offers one of the best motion compensation systems on the market, engineers have further improved the system now called Fast Motion Clarity, which ensures the insertion of adaptive black images at 120 Hz. We should be able to benefit from even sharper moving images.
The audio system evolves with new boxes for the three tweeters, a more rigid 100 x 65 mm membrane and a more powerful magnet for the bass speaker, as well as four mid-range speakers and speakers oriented towards. the top for the slightly repositioned Dolby Atmos effect. Visually, the integration of the eye-shaped tweeter-on-top – signature of the manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins – is clearly visible.
Regarding the system, Philips still trusts Android TV in its latest version. Finally, the television retains the Ambilight system which this year passes on four sides, just to illuminate the base of the device in addition to its three sides.
The Philips 48OLED936, 55OLED936 and 65OLED936 televisions will be available in the coming days at the respective prices of 2300, 2500 and 3500 €. The 48-inch model is particularly expensive to pay, but it is probably one of the best-equipped “small” televisions on the market, especially in terms of the audio system.
Philips 65OLED956: the most premium Oled model from Philips
The Philips 65OLED956 incorporates the characteristics of the OLED936, namely the brighter Oled panel, the Philips P5 Dual Chip processor, the HDMI 2.1 connection (4K 120 Hz, VRR, eARC), FreeSync / G-Sync compatibility, Android TV in its latest version and the Ambilight system on four sides.
It also takes the design of the Philips 65OLED954 from 2020, but the audio system has been revised for better precision. The three 100mm mid / bass drivers are now equipped with Continuum cones and more precise filtering components to reduce distortion and improve high frequency reproduction. The three loudspeakers are independent and isolated. Those at the ends are equipped with classic tweeters while the one in the center has the famous tweeter-on-top decoupled from the main speaker to improve rendering.
The Philips 65OLED956 TV is only available in this size with its floor stand. It will be marketed during the fourth quarter for a price of around € 5,000.
Philips OLED806: the more affordable Oled model still in HDMI 2.1
Released earlier this year, the Philips OLED806 went under the radar. And yet, there is no shortage of arguments. While it ignores the brighter Oled panel and the P5 Dual Chip processor of the two top-of-the-range models, it corrects one of the main weak points of last year’s models: the display delay and HDMI 2.1 support. This model therefore has two HDMI 2.1 4K 120 Hz inputs, ALLM, eARC and VRR. The Philips OLED806 thus supports FreeSync Premium and Nvidia G-Sync. For this model, Philips announces a display delay of only 12 ms, enough to put it in direct competition with the Samsung Qled models and, above all, the Oled LG, the only other TVs compatible with Nvidia’s G-Sync.
The Philips OLED806 retains a 120 Hz 10-bit Ultra HD Oled panel, the Philips P5 AI Perfect Picture Engine video processor, Android TV in its latest version and, of course, the Ambilight system on four sides. Small subtlety compared to 2020, the feet can no longer raise the TV to place a sound bar under the slab. Instead, Philips offers two finishes on the legs: black or chrome, which can be chosen simply by turning them over at installation.
The Philips OLED806 is available in four sizes, all those currently available in Oled: 48 (122 cm), 55 (140 cm), 65 (165 cm) and 77 inches (196 cm) at the respective prices of 1300, 1800, 3000 and € 5,000.
