Electronics manufacturer Philips has unveiled its 2021 range TVS, with MiniLED screens the hero of the series.
Philips announced the arrival of two MiniLED televisions for release this year – the 9636 and the 9506 which come in 65-inch and 75-inch sizes.
These screens will be the first televisions manufactured by Netherlands-based Philips to feature MiniLED.
Both models use Philips’ fifth-generation P5 picture processor with anti-burn-in technology and support for the light-sensitive HDR10+ Adaptive mode.
The 9636 will also ship with a 3.1.2 sound system from audio firm Bowers & Wilkins.
The MiniLED TVS will be available in mid-2021, however an Australian release date and pricing have not yet been confirmed.
Philips is also releasing two models in OLED – the 806 in 48, 55, 65 and 77-inch and the 856 in 55 and 65-inch.
But Australian customers may have issues getting their hands on a new Philips TV, as finding a retailer that stocks the products has proved difficult.
In May 2020, Channel News reported Australian retailers were not receiving shipments of Philips TVs due to COVID-19 production problems.
JB Hi-Fi appears to be out of stock on all Philips TVs, while Harvey Norman is selling seven LED and LCD models – two of which are on clearance.
The Australian Philips TV site www.philips.com.au lists 18 4K Ultra HD TVs, 22 Smart Philips TVs, 2 OLED TVs and 5 Android TVs. The local site also lists information on Philips Ambilight models.
