TP Vision has announced the Philips 6500 series of smart TVs. The televisions will have a full HD resolution, Ambilight functionality and the latest version of Android TV. The group will also release the cheaper and all-new 6300 line in the second quarter of 2015.
The Philips 6500 series is equipped with Ambilight, the colored LED lighting that TP Vision also uses for its high-end televisions. It concerns two-sided Ambilight lighting. The TVs run the latest version of Android TV, or Lollipop, and Philips’ own smart TV platform complements Google’s operating system.
Philips supplies the TVs with a QWERTY keyboard integrated into the remote control, making text entry easy. Furthermore, the models are equipped with Micro Dimming Pro. According to the manufacturer, the TV analyzes the display of content on 6400 different zones on the image surface, in order to dynamically adjust the backlight based on ambient light. This should improve the contrast.
The cheaper 6300 series of Philips TVs also have Micro Dimming and two-sided Ambilight, but Android TV is missing. Earlier this year, TP Vision announced that all smart TVs with Android TV that the company will release this year will receive the latest version of the OS. Almost all of the company’s recent models run Android TV.
TP Vision could not yet report the prices and precise release dates of the 6500 and 6300 series.
