Philips OLED+908 – Flagship shines the light
Available in Autumn 2023 – in 55”, 65” and 77” sizes – the OLED+908 features the latest META OLED panel with the additional power of the 7th Gen P5 AI processor, an integrated Bowers & Wilkins sound system and a three-sided Next Gen Ambilight system, all combining to offer a uniquely immersive, exceptionally high-quality viewing experience.
The new META OLED panel uses a Micro Lens Array layer and a META brightness boosting algorithm to offer a potential peak light output of 2100 Nits, representing an increase of 70% while also offering a wider viewing angle and an energy efficiency improvement.
The 7th Gen P5 AI processor offers an improved V2 version of Ambient Intelligence continuing to allow the real time adjustment of the brightness, gamma and colour response of the screen to guarantee optimum performance matched to the ambient lighting conditions.
The V2 version of Ambient Intelligence uses a new XYZ light sensor that can now measure the colour temperature of light in the viewing room, so that the white point of the screen image now exactly matches the real time tint of the room’s ambient lighting.
An improved Super Resolution feature also offers exceptional edge sharpness while also creating rich detail in the main part of the enhanced screen object.
Sound quality matches the exceptional PQ thanks to the 3.1, 80W Bowers & Wilkins sound system, with six front mounted drivers firing directly at the listener in a dedicated Left, Centre, Right (LCR) arrangement – giving an extra wide sound stage with crystal clear dialogue. Deep, accurate bass is provided from a large, rear mounted subwoofer supported by four passive radiators.
As with all 2023 OLED Ambilight TVs, the OLED+908 will feature the new Google TV OS, a refined and more sophisticated version of the existing Android TV experience with a more intuitive interface and home screen, now offering a greater emphasis on personalized content and tailored recommendations.
Google TV joins a new, more intuitive user interface in the Ambilight 2023 range, offering easier access to the key settings and functions while also providing less menu overlay of the on-screen image.
The minimalist design of the OLED+908 features a super-slim dark metal bezel matched by the dark Kvadrat Audiomix cloth speaker grill and with a new black sheen, metal open frame stand. The OLED+908 also debuts a new remote control with a rechargeable battery – via USB-C – a new ‘123’ hot key to turn the backlight on and off and a motion sensor to detect when the remote has been lifted and activate the backlighting.
Philips OLED808 – Improving on the most widely admired OLED range
The OLED808 series adds a new screen size to the Ambilight TV range via the first 42” OLED model – joining the existing 48”, 55”, 65” and 77” screen sizes.
The OLED808 range brings the power of the new 7th Gen P5 AI – featuring Ambient Intelligence V2 and the new Super resolution features – and includes high-output 1000Nits OLED_EX panels, for 55” and above screen sizes, to guarantee superb picture quality.
The OLED808 – plus all of the 2023 OLED series – offers a superb, advanced gaming performance, by now adding Dolby Vision 4K 120Hz compatibility to HDMI 2.1 e-Arc, VRR support for 4K from 40Hz to120Hz at a full bandwidth of 48Gbps (444, 12 bit) FreeSync Premium and G-SYNC compatibility plus Auto Game and Auto-Low-Latency modes.
Excellent sound quality continues to be a highlight of the range thanks to an integrated 70W 2.1 sound system – 50W for the 42” – with a more accurate digital crossover precisely controlling the distribution to the two-way left and right speakers and the dedicated triple ring, rear facing bass driver – supported by four passive radiators.
The OLED808 has a razor thin, zero bezel design with an outside dark metal frame that allows a seamless connection to the more sophisticated and powerful Next Gen three-sided Ambilight system, with its increased colour detail and accuracy, to create the most immersive viewing experience.
Most versions of the OLED808 feature a new central, elegant metal satin chrome EVO swivel stand with the only exception being the 77” model which adopts new metal, flat satin chrome offset sticks.
The Google TV OS and the new UI also ensure simpler and more personalised user experience.
