Philips is launching its first OLED TVs with HDMI 2.1 ports and its first 77-inch model. Four new OLED ranges are rolling out in Europe.

OLED is trickling down to Philips' 7-series making the self-emissive display technology more widely accessible – at least in Europe. OLED705 is Philips' most affordable model but it lacks some of the latest technologies. OLED706 adds HDMI 2.1 and other new features. For the first time, Philips offers HDMI 2.1 ports in its TVs. At this time, only PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X take advantage of the extra bandwidth in HDMI 2.1 but more devices are expected to launch in the future. OLED706 and up support 4K120, VRR (and FreeSync), ALLM and eARC.
