Philips 9707 and 9607 TVs
Philips' 9707 / 9607 flagship TVs leak

10 Jul 2012 | Rasmus Larsen |

The 9 series has represented Philips’ flagship TVs for many years. The 2012 variant has been kept secret so far but FlatpanelsHD can now reveal details and pictures of the Philips 9707 and 9607 TVs, coming in 46 and 60 inch sizes, from a credible source.

Philips 9 series leaks

Philips has already unveiled their new 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 series TVs but until now we have known very little about the new 9 series. A leaked Russian document now reveals the new 9707 and 9607 TVs with pictures and technical specifications. The 9 series is expected to arrive in 46 and 60 inch sizes.

The document reveals a Philips TV with an extremely slim bezel made from some kind of metal. The TV is minimalistic and elegant, and Philips returns to the elongated remote control; now with a full QWERTY keyboard on the back side to control the TV’s Smart TV features.

On the technical specification sheet we find a 1200Hz Perfect Motion Rate (PMR) system, 3D Max (Philips’s name for active 3D with active 3D glasses), a 2-player mode that requires 3D glasses, a Moth Eye-filter to help reduce reflections on the screen surface, and a Micro Dimming Premium system. We have no further details about the Micro Dimming Premium system and are not sure if it is a full local dimming system. All previous 9 series TVs from Philips have utilized full local dimming. Image processing is handled by Philips’ Perfect Pixel HD engine.

Philips plans to include the Smart TV Premium platform with TV apps in the 9 series TVs. The document also reveals a function that allows users to stream TV channel from the TV onto a smartphone or tablet screen via “WiFi Smart Screen”. Lastly, it is mentioned that you can control the TV with a smartphone, tablet or keyboard. WiFi is built in.

The leaked document appears official and credible. It contains correct information and details on all models previously unveiled by Philips. The document also mentions new DesignLine TVs which will replace last year’s DesignLine TVs. The TV has a leaning design and is positioned in the mid-price segment.

Philips is expected to officially announce the new 9 series TVs and the new DesignLine TVs at IFA 2012 in September. FlatpanelsHD will provide full coverage from IFA 2012 in Berlin.
