Philips PML9308 The Xtra, 4K Mini LED TV: updated indicative prices

The indicative prices of the Philips PML9308 Mini LED TVs are now known.

The Philips PML9308 Mini LED TV series has two references, the Philips 55PML9308 (55'', 140 cm) and Philips 65PML9308 (65'', 165 cm).

Philips PML9308 TV, P5 processor

The Philips PML9308 screens of course benefit from the P5 processor mixed with artificial intelligence for a magnified HDR experience. Precision, Fast Motion Clarity and anti-marking modes, exclusive to Oled screens, are logically 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.

Regarding these Mini LED TVs equipped with 10-bit 120 Hz LCD panels, Philips announces a peak light of 1,000 nits, 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 gamut and a Full LED Local Dimming backlighting system. Namely, the 55'' specimen has 80 independent zones, 144 for the 65 inch. Of course, the brilliant Ambilight process, here three sides (top, right and left), is still in place.

Of course, the brilliant Ambilight process is still available, in three-sided mode, as is compatibility with HDR Dolby Vision (limited to 60 Hz), HDR HLG and HDR10+ Adaptive technologies.

Philips PML9308 TV, 2.1 64 W sound system

The Philips PML9308 Mini LED TVs integrate a 2.1 audio system with a total power of 64 W from Bowers & Wilkins. The triple ring type subwoofer is complemented by four passive membranes to reinforce the bass impact. Precision, a Dolby Atmos decoder and a Dolby Atmos Virtualizer function are also required.

Also on the sound side, Philips PML9308 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 5.1 wireless Home Cinema system or the integration of the TV into a multiroom system. On the other hand, no Google TV on Philips The Xtra screens but the “home” Smart TV function. Last clarification, we must also mention for the Phiilps 2023 TV range a new remote control, significantly shortened and rechargeable via USB-C.

Immediate availability. Indicative prices: €1,499 for the Philips 55PML9308, €1,799 for the Philips 65PML9308.
