Philips launches its first OLED TV

20 Jan 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

The Philips 901F is the first to combine OLED, Ambiilght, and Android TV in one package. Originally announced in September 2016, the TV is now available in select European countries and will launch in more soon.

Philips’ first OLED TV

The OLED TV is produced by TP Vision and will be available only in Europe. The Philips TV brand is controlled by a separate company in the US. The model is called 901F and was announced at IFA in September as the new 9 series model, meaning that it represents the best picture quality in a Philips TV.

901F is available only in 55 inches and is the first to combine OLED technology with a 3-sided Ambilight system. That is no surprise since Philips has so far chosen to keep its patented ambient light system exclusive to its own TVs.

901F comes with 4K resolution, HDR (High Dynamic Range), an expanded color gamut (99% DCI-P3), and the ’Perfect Pixel Ultra HD’ picture processor. The OLED panel is sourced from LG.Display. Sound is delivered by a 6.1 system with a total effect of 30W and the soundbar is integrated below the panel.

Like all other TP Vision-made Philips TVs the OLED comes with Android TV built-in. This is the first OLED TV running Android but it will soon be joined by Sony’s A1 OLED. The Android TV operating system is developed by Google and gives you access to apps and games via the Google Play store. Chromecast is built-in.

Philips 55POS901F is available now in select European countries and will arrive in more countries soon. In Germany it is listed for 3500 Euro.
