Philips PUS8507 The One LED TV, from 43'' to 86'', Ambilight 3, HDR Dolby Vision/HDR10, HDMI 2.1, Android 11…

After the presentation in our columns this morning of the TV series Philips PUS8807 The One, back as announced on the other TV series The One, the Philips PUS8507. Namely, it also offers a giant 86'' (218 cm) diagoanle.

On the menu of this TV series The One, the Philips 43PUS8507 (43'', 106 cm), Philips 50PUS8507 (50'', 127 cm), Philips 55PUS8507 (50'', 127 cm), Philips 55PUS8507 (50'', 127 cm), Philips 65PUS8507 (65'', 165cm), Philips 75PUS8507 (75'', 191cm) and Philips 86PUS8507 (86'', 218cm).

In short, the two Philips The One vintage 2022 series are almost identical in every way. Only the frequency of the LCD panel differs, native 100 Hz on the PUS8807 screens, 50 Hz on the PUS8507 TVs presented here. Of course, this difference also induces a change in the functions of the HDMI 2.1 connectors, logically not compatible with an HFR 4K/120 signal. Also, the VRR function supports 40Hz to 60Hz frequencies only.

Main Specifications

For the rest, there is a 10-bit, 50 Hz LCD panel, associated with a Direct LED Global Dimming backlighting system. HDR Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR HLG compatibility is required. At the heart of these televisions beats the P5 Gen5 processor, in its version specifically adapted to LCD technology. And it is he who manages the exclusive Micro Dimming function to display an always optimum contrast on the screen. On the sound side, the Philips PUS8507 TVs include a 2.0 audio system with a total power of 20 watts. Precision, a Dolby Atmos decoder is present.

Still concerning the sound section, the Philips PUS8507 TVs benefit from the DTS Play-Fi function allowing the configuration of a wireless 5.1 Home Cinema system or the integration of the TV within a multiroom system. Namely, an upcoming Firmware update will allow the Philips PUS8507 TVs to be used as the central channel within a multi-channel configuration. Apart from these technical characteristics, there is also a DVB-T/DVB-C and DVB-S2 tuner and the renowned Natural Motion motion compensation, a true signature of Philips televisions.

Ambilight 3

The Philips PUS8507 series benefits from Ambilight 3 (active on the top, right and left sides of the screen), always able to adapt to the color of the back wall, and the Ambilight + Hue function (click to learn more about this great option!) to combine the Ambilight effect of the TV with the Philips Hue bulbs in the room, directly from the screen and no longer from a tablet or smartphone. Not to mention Ambilight Gaming Mode with extremely low latency, active with all games (via console/PC, Google Play, Cloud Gaming, etc.) to fully immerse the player in the action, and Ambilight Music (with Spotify for example ) to enjoy a nightclub atmosphere. Precision, this last mode can be active even when the TV is off.

Smart TV Android 11

Always present, the UPnP multimedia gateway (DLNA) via the Ethernet port or Wi-Fi ac compatibility, and a Quad Core processor. These allow you to enjoy audio, video and music content stored on a Mac/PC computer or a Nas hard drive via the home network; to connect to the internet (the television then transforming into a computer monitor) via a USB keyboard and mouse; control the screen using a free iOS and Android app; finally, to program the recording on a USB key or an external hard drive of their favorite shows.

The Android 11 Smart TV function of Philips PUS8507 TVs allows access to the Google ecosystem directly from the TV screen (Google Play Store, Play Movies, Play Music, Google Chrome, etc.) and install their favorite applications via 16 GB of built-in Flash memory (expandable via USB), like a smartphone. Plus VP9 compatibility and built-in ChromeCast functionality for viewing smartphone/tablet content on the big screen via a compatible app. Finally, Google Assistant is in the game with even the possibility of controlling various connected objects certified “Works with Google Assistant” (Philips Hue lamps, Nest thermostat, etc.). Similarly, it will be possible to directly access a specific series on Netflix or a video / music on Youtube, vocally. To access Google's voice assistant, simply press the dedicated button on the TV remote control and speak. The "Works with Alexa" certification requires the use of an Amazon Echo Dot type speaker.

Also integrated, the Miracast functionality (Wi-Fi Direct + mirroring to share on the TV screen l interface of a smartphone, tablet or PC). Likewise for HBBTV compatibility. MP3, WMA, AAC, Mpeg2, Mpeg4, WMV, VC-1, AVC/H.264 and Jpeg compatibility is provided via, among other things, AVI and MKV containers.

Remote control with microphone and HDMI 2.1

Namely, the remote control for Philips PUS8507 televisions incorporates a microphone for the Hey Google function. Finally, the connectors of these TVs have two HDMI 2.0 inputs and two HDMI 2.1 inputs compatible with eARC, VRR (from 40 Hz to 60 Hz as a reminder), ALLM and FreeSync. Note again an extremely low Input Lag at 9 milliseconds. In short, perfect features to satisfy video game enthusiasts.

Namely, always with a view to meeting the needs of gamers, a Game Bar is appearing on the Philps PUS8507 TVs. This allows users to quickly access game-related settings, changing them on the fly without wasting time (see photos above and below).

Last details, the 43'', 50'', 55'' and 65'' diagonals have a central leg, a double leg for the 75'' and 86'' specimens (see photo above).

Philips PUS8507 series release date planned for spring. Indicative prices still unknown.
