More affordable Philips OLED TVs without Android revealed

25 Jul 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

Later this year, 55 and 65-inch OLED754 models will be added to the Philips 2019 line-up, according to a report by toengel.net. These are the first Philips OLED TVs without Android.

Philips Europe (TP Vision) has been putting its faith in Google's Android TV platform since 2015 but last year it began phasing in its own linux-based Saphi platform as an alternative in some of its more affordable TVs. An upcoming OLED754 will apparently be the first non-Android OLED from Philips. It will instead feature Saphi that offers access to apps such as Amazon, Netflix and YouTube (in HDR).

The new TVs have yet to be formally introduced but Philips blog toengel.net has discovered tons of references, press photos, and even full specifications (in German) on the Philips websites. This also marks the first time that Philips is bringing OLED technology to its 7 series, which is a line of mid-range TVs that are more affordable than the high-end 8 and 9 series. OLED754 will feature 4K resolution, a P5 video processor, 3-sided Ambilight, a 2.1-channel 40W sound system with a built-in subwoofer, and a slim design.

It will also offer Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support. Philips has been in the HDR10+ camp for a few years now but starting with its 2019 generation of TVs it is adding Dolby Vision support to almost its full line-up of TVs. As such, OLED754 will support multiple HDR formats; HDR10, HDR10+, HLG and Dolby Vision. The company has already unveiled new 8 series OLED TVs for 2019 and is expected to announce additional models at IFA 2019 in September where we expect the 55 and 65-inch OLED754 models to amongst the highlights. - Source: toengel.net, Philips
