Philips 9000 65PFL9708 / 84PFL9708 4K Ultra HD TVs Announced

TP / Vision have unveiled their new 9000 series of Ultra HD TV / 4K TVs over at IFA.

Philips is the latest manufacturers to join in on the 4K UHD game, and it’s no longer the playing field ruled by Sony, LG and Samsung. Budget U.S TV manufacturers Vizio are rumored to be releasing a range of 4K TVs by the end of this year.

The Philips 9000 series of ultra HD TVs will be available in 65-inch as the Philips 65PFL9708, which has a price of 4,999 Euros, and the 84-inch Philips 84PFL9708, which will go for a healthy 14,999 Euros.

Both of the Philips 4K TVs accept and process 4K signals thanks to its Ultra Pixel HD Engine. They also of course also feature picture upscalling, which Philips says is also beneficial when applied to native UHD content. This is somewhat interesting, as I for one, would probably like my native 4K signal and content left “as is”, but it’s an interesting feature.

The Philips 9000 4K TV is also a Smart TV and comes with a remote control which features a full keyboard making using the Smart TV functions easier. There is also a “pointing application” making it easier to select app on the Smart TV home page, and also when browsing the web.

CEO at TP Vision, Maarten de Vries, said

“Our 65 inch Philips 9000 series UHD TV stands out from the crowd with its award-winning picture quality and its very attractive price. With a recommended retail price of 4,999 euros, we have opened up a new price segment for well-equipped top-class UHD TVs. Large-screen UHD TVs are suddenly an option for a much broader audience.”

TP Vision / Philips say that their 4K TVs are available immediately!
