P5 Gen7, heart of Philips OLED848 TVs

On the menu of all these TV series, and featured, the seventh generation of the P5 processor with artificial intelligence for a magnified HDR experience.

This is based on a new light sensor that is much more precise to offer a white point that perfectly matches the lighting of the moment. Namely, the Super Resolution function, also improved, offers unprecedented sharpness and a great wealth of detail. Not to mention two HDMI 2.1 inputs (plus two HDMI 2.0) with eARC, VRR (from 40 Hz to 120 Hz), HFR 4K/120, ALLM, FreeSync Premium Pro and G-Sync compatibility.

Compatibilities with Dolby Vision HDR technologies up to Ultra HD 4K and 120 Hz, HDR HLG and HDR10+ Adaptive are still required.

Also, the three-sided Ambilight function is in order. As a reminder, since last year the latter has been managing the color diodes placed at the back of the TV, around the edge of the panel, independently and no longer by group of diodes for a significantly more precise synchronization with the images displayed on the screen.
