Philips introduces first UHD TV with Android

This is not the first time we are going to see a TV with Android but for first time, we are going to tell you about an Ultra HD TV powered by Android. Presenting, the Philips 8809 series with a 4K display; a 55-inch television with 3840×2160 pixels, hexa-core processor and Android 4.2 in core. Also, if 4K is too much for you, you can also get quad-core Philips 8109 and 8209, which features a 1920×1080 resolution in choices of 48 or 55 inches, and also powered by Android 4.2.

Talking about some other good things about it, the Philips’ Ambilight technology sets the colors behind and around the TV to match the display, the mood, or even your room. Android will allow you full access to Google Play, which means you can play any game on your TV, and also Google Chrome browser is there as well, so this TV might make you say goodbye to your tablets and laptops. Also, it has gesture control, voice recognition, remote control via smartphones or tablets, screen mirroring, recording, and dual channel display.

It is supposed to hit European and Russian markets in Q2 2014, although we don’t know when will it hit the US market.
