Philips’ new OLED TVs could actually dethrone LG as the ultimate gaming TV

Philips has just announced its latest generation of OLED TVs, featuring two new models: the Philips OLED808, which has been upgraded to become a powerful gaming tool and comes in a new 42-inch size; and the high-end Philips OLED+908 (pictured above), which promises breakthrough brightness on par with the best OLED TVs coming later this year.

These TVs share a common image processor upgrade, and the 7th generation Philips P5 is included in all three TVs. The new processor places great emphasis on real-time image adjustment based on ambient lighting conditions, including adjusting the color temperature of the screen based on the color of the lighting in the room. This is the same principle as Apple’s True Tone technology used in products such as the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2022) and MacBook Pro 16-inch (2023) – and I’m a big fan of it. The idea is to make the white on the TV screen look like the white in the room around you, which reduces eye strain. There are also improvements to detail processing in the new chip.
