Philips launches new LCD TVs with HDMI 2.1, miniLED & Ambilight

27 Jul 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

Philips has launched an upgraded line-up of LCD TVs for 2021, its first with HDMI 2.1 ports. The company is also rolling out its first LCD TVs with miniLED zone dimming. 

2021 Philips LCD TVs

The new line-up was announced in January and is rolling out now gradually across Europe in sizes ranging from 43 to 75 inches. The headlining new feature is HDMI 2.1 ports and features. For the first time in a Philips TV you get support for 4K120, ALLM and VRR for next-generation gaming with consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The TVs also support HDMI eARC for improved audio quality and features. The other headlining new feature is the miniLED backlight in the two PML ranges that will launch in the coming weeks in Europe. While miniLED in itself does not improve picture quality, Philips has – like LG and Samsung – taken advantage of the smaller light emitting diodes to increase the number of dimming zones (approx. 1000) behind the LCD panel, for better brightness control and contrast.
