Philips PML9008 The Xtra, 4K Mini LED TV: specification update and photos

In addition to the Philips PML9308 Mini LED TV series, the brand will offer a second Mini LED TV series under the The Xtra label, the Philips PML9008.

The Philips PML9008 Mini LED TV series will therefore have three references, the Philips 55PML9008 (55'', 140 cm), Philips 65PML9008 (65'', 165 cm) and Philips 75PML9008 (75'', 191 cm). The main difference, at the time of writing these lines, with the PML9308 screens concerns the audio section of the televisions, 2.0 with a power of 40 W against 2.1 and 64 watts.

Philips PML9008 TV, P5 processor

For the rest, the Philips PML9008 screens of course benefit from the P5 processor mixed with artificial intelligence for a magnified HDR experience. Precision, the Fast Motion Clarity and anti-marking modes, exclusive to Oled screens, are therefore absent. For the rest, we find all the features associated with this formidable chip: new ambient light sensor, two HDMI 2.1 inputs with eARC, VRR, HFR 4K/120, ALLM and FreeSync Premium Pro.

About these Mini LED TVs equipped with 120 Hz 10-bit LCD panels, Philips announces a luminous peak of 1,000 nits and a Full LED Local Dimming backlight system. Of course, compatibility with HDR Dolby Vision (limited to 60 Hz), HDR HLG and HDR10+ Adaptive technologies. Namely, the 55'' specimen has 80 independent zones, 144 for the 65'' and 75 inch.

Philips PML9008 TV, DTS Play-Fi

Still on the sound side, the Philips PML9008 TVs benefit from the DTS Play-Fi function (see our news Philips and DTS Play-Fi partnership: televisions, sound bars and wireless and multiroom speakers) allowing the configuration of a Wireless 5.1 Home Cinema or TV integration in a multi-room system. Precision, a Dolby Atmos decoder and a Dolby Atmos Virtualizer function are also required. On the other hand, no Google TV on Philips The Xtra screens but the “home” Smart TV function. Last precision, we must also mention for the Philps 2023 TV range a new remote control, significantly shortened and rechargeable via USB-C.

Scheduled for release in October.
