Philips unveils new 48-65" flagship OLED936 TVs with HDMI 2.1, B&W sound

17 Aug 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

Philips has unveiled its 2021 generation of 9-series OLED TVs. OLED936 features Bowers & Wilkins sound, a dual-chip P5 processor, Android 10, and for the first time HDMI 2.1 ports.

OLED plus B&W sound

Philips refers to its new flagship TVs as 'OLED+'. It is not a new OLED technology but a marketing term to indicate that they come with Philips' most advanced technology including Ambilight and its best TV sound. Philips OLED936 will be available in 48, 55, and 65 inches with 4K resolution and 4-sided Ambilight mood lighting, which in recent years has been expanded to support Hue integration, Music synchronisation, Game Mode, Lounge Mode, adaptive wall colors, and more.

There are two main differences compared to the 2020 generation (OLED935). The first difference is that OLED936 now comes with two HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K120 support for next-gen gaming on PS5 and Xbox Series X. Optional HDMI 2.1 features like eARC, VRR (and FreeSync), and ALLM are also supported.

Another highlight is the built-in 3.1.2-channel speaker system with Dolby Atmos and upgraded drivers, engineered by Bowers & Wilkins. - "A car chase. A whisper. The music. The exclusive Bowers & Wilkins sound enclosure brings a thrillingly lifelike performance to whatever you're watching. The iconic tweeter-on-top design keeps dialogue pristine. Up-firing speakers let you get the most out of immersive Dolby Atmos," the company said.

Android 10, DTS Play-Fi

Everything else that we have come to expect from a Philips OLED TV is still here, including multi-HDR support (HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, Dolby Vision) as well as DTS-HD and DTS Play-Fi support. The TVs run Android 10 with access to streaming apps like Amazon, HBO, Disney+ and Netflix. You also get built-in Google Assistant and Chromecast. For the first time, Philips' 2021 TVs support AV1 video decoding. The company has yet to comment on its transition plans from Android TV to Google TV.
