philips-6900-smart-tv-top.jpgTP Vision, the new TV manufacturing arm for Philips, have revealed the new PFL6900 Smart TV series, ditching the chunky frames of Philips’ earlier offerings.

Measuring just 35mm thick but still squeezing in the atmospheric Ambilight technology that throws light around the walls surrounding the TV, they’re fully connected sets with 3D support thrown in for good measure.

Available in 42 and 47-inch sizes, both 6900 series screens offer catch-up TV services, web browsing, online video download stores apps and USB hard-disk recording of shows across three USB ports.

Android and iPhone users will be able to control the sets via the Philips MyRemote App, while gamers will be able to use the 3D capabilities of the screen to view the entire display each when sharing the TV for split-screen multiplayer games.

600Hz Perfect Motion Rate refresh rates and 4 HDMI ports round off an impressive spec list.

Pricing and availability to follow. We’ll update when we have it.
