Philips is Now Making Android TV Powered Smart TVs





Today Philips partner Funai Corporation, Inc announced two new Android TV powered 4K HDR 10 smart TVs ranging in from 43” to 75” starting at $349.99. Powered by Android 8.0 the new TVs will give customers access to thousands of apps including HULU, SlingTV, YouTube TV and Games available on Google Play.

“Combining Funai’s innovative display technology with the Android TV platform gives users a new central hub for their home and provides endless entertainment options for all viewers,” says Youssef Ibrahim, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Funai Corporation, Inc. “The new series not only gives users instant access to their favorite entertainment programs in 4K, it can also control smart lights, thermostats, cameras, and more, regardless of which room they are in; providing unprecedented convergence between television, entertainment and multi-zone connected home control.”

The Philips TVs will include HDMI, antenna RF, Wireless 802.11ac dual-band MIMO, Ethernet and USB multimedia, and audio options including digital optical and Bluetooth 4.2 for optional headphone, keyboard or other accessory connectivity.

No release date has been announced but Philips will be showing off the new Android TV powered smart TVs at CES. Cord Cutters News will be there to take a look at these new TVs and try to learn more.

Correction: In an early version of this story we said Funai Corporation was the parent company of Philips. It was meant to say partner company.
