TP Vision – the company that produces Philips TVs – is planning to unveil its first Ultra HD TVs at the coming IFA 2013 show in Berlin this September. The TV will become Philipsâ€™ new 9000 series, according to Pocket-lint.
Philips to unveil Ultra HD TVs
Everyone seems to be having an Ultra HD TV these days. Most of them are very expensive but with more competition comes lower prices. That is why it is interesting to see Philips join the race.
This is not Philipsâ€™ new 9000 series but the new 8000 series
The site Pocket-lint claims that they have seen the first prototype of the TV. It will be part of Philipsâ€™ 9000 series that has always represented its top-of-the-line models. The TV is, reportedly, capable of handling 4K content at 60 fps (frames per second) but besides that details are scarce. Currently, LG is only of the few manufacturers of Ultra HD TV panels for the mass market and with its current 55, 65 and 84â€ť version, it is likely to see Philipsâ€™ Ultra HD TV in the same size classes (except the 84â€ť).
Philipsâ€™ new Ultra HD 9000 series is expected to be unveiled at the IFA 2013 show in Berlin this September, and hit the market in 2014.
