Video: New Philips 8000 series

Philips has unveiled new 7000 series and 9000 series TVs but for the first half of 2017 last year’s 8000 series will carry over. A new 8000 series model will launch in the second half of 2017 – possibly at IFA in Berlin.

Philips’ new 8000 series was teased at the company’s European launch event in Madrid last week by Danny Tack, Director Product Strategy & Planning. It will be the company’s first LCD TV with quantum dot film that can help achieve higher peak brightness and a wider color gamut.

- “It is with quantum dot film and will be 1000 nits light output,” said Danny Tack

The full video in which Philips teases the upcoming 8000 series is embedded below. In the video the TV is compared side-by-side with last year’s 7601 model but Philips stressed that it is an “early prototype” without the new P5 video processor.
