TP Vision has unveiled its second Philips-branded OLED TV at a launch event in Madrid this week, following on from the critically-acclaimed 901F series launched late last year.
Like the 55POS901F, the Philips 9002 will come in one screen size, 55 inches (model number 55POS9002), and will feature native 3840×2160 UHD resolution, new P5 picture processing engine, support for both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats, three-sided Ambilight, and the latest M version of Android Smart TV system.
TP Vision / Philips says that the P5 picture processing engine boosts the inherent qualities of OLED – namely true blacks, vibrant colors and wide viewing angles – by providing 25% new processing features and 25% more processing power. They are claiming that this will result in an overall performance improvement of 50% in the key image quality areas of source correction, sharpness, color and contrast when compared with the award-winning Pixel Precise Ultra HD Engine.
In terms of HDR performance, the Philips POS9002 will deliver a peak brightness of 750 nits and a DCI-P3 coverage of 99%. Given these specifications, it will come as no surprise then that the OLED television will be UHD Premium-certified.
Design-wise, the Philips 55POS9002 won’t carry a bottom-mounted integrated soundbar, unlike the 55POS901F. Nevertheless, sound quality will be kept up by the inclusion of Philips’ patented and powerful triple-ring technology and DTS HD Premium Sounds compatibility.
The Philips 9002 OLED is scheduled to arrive in the summer following Freeview Play certification. Prices remain unannounced.
