(Pocket-lint) - Philips frequently refreshes its TV lineup, with new designs and updates, and 2021 will be no different.

A new range of Philips OLED TVs are coming soon. While, at the top end of its LED TV range, it will also introduce Mini LED tech for the first time.

Here then are Philips' top TVs, from the new 2021 models to 2020 sets you can still buy now - sometimes at a discount.

We're not covering all of them, just those that stand out based on their features and positioning.

Philips OLED TVs

TP Vision

Philips OLED 806/856

  • Available: TBC
  • Screen sizes: 48in, 55in, 65in, 77in
  • OLED, 3840 x 2160 pixels, HRD10+ Adaptive, Dolby Vision, HLG, Filmmaker Mode, Dolby Atmos, DTS Play-Fi, Android TV

Philips will stick with its OLED+ 935 as the flagship model for the foreseeable future, but last year's 805 and 855 will be replaced with OLED TVs with a few new features and improved picture processing.

The difference between the 806 and 856 is largely aesthetic - coming with different stands, basically. In addition, the 856 will only be available in 55 and 65-inches. The 806, on the other hand, adds 48 and 77-inch variants - the latter being the largest OLED TV from the Philips brand yet.

One of the main additions is the P5 AI Intelligent Picture Engine - a processor that analyses images and cross references different picture situations to apply the best settings. It also has a superb anti-screen burn technology that recognises and dims static logos on screen.

In addition, each of the new OLEDs come with 4K 120Hz and variable refresh rate (VRR) technology for gaming. Those combined with ALLM (auto low latency mode) ensure that those with next-gen consoles get the most from their machines. HDMI eARC and Dolby Atmos are on board too, for audio support.

The final string to each set's bow is four-sided Ambilight.

While it has been around for a while, the current flagship comes with many of the tech functionality of the newer models above. That includes the anti-screen burn technology that can greatly help to reduce screen retention.

This TV also comes with a class-leading Bowers & Wilkins sound system that provides a 3.1.2 surround effect, including two Dolby Atmos elevation speakers that heighten audio.

Like the 806/856, the 935 has Filmmaker Mode. It is also DTS Play-Fi enabled, which means it can link to other Philips Wireless Home System speakers to either create a wider home theatre (with rear channels) or sync music around the home.

Philips Mini LED TVs

TP Vision

Philips MiniLED 9506

  • Available: TBC
  • Screen sizes: 65in, 75in
  • Mini LED, 3840 x 2160 pixels, HRD10+ Adaptive, Dolby Vision, HLG, Filmmaker Mode, Dolby Atmos, DTS Play-Fi, Android TV

Philips has embraced Mini LED technology for its top-end LCD/LED TVs this year. That means the backlight uses thousands of tiny LEDs in its backlight, which are grouped into 1,000 zones. These zones can be turned off, brightened or dimmed idependently, leading to more accurate colours and better contrast than previous LED panels.

ALso, thanks to the size of the LEDs, there is less light bleed, so black levels can be much deeper and darker than ever before. It's the closest the tech can get to OLED, yet remains more affordable.

The MiniLED 9506 comes with four-sided Ambilight and the same P5 AI Intelligent Picture Engine as the 2021 top-end OLEDs. It is also 4K 120Hz, so is capable of playing PS5 and Xbox Series X games at their best. VRR and ALLM are on board too.

HDR10+ Adaptive is added to the HDR suite of standards, which adapts the picture depending on lighting conditions.

TP Vision

Philips MiniLED 9636

  • Available: TBC
  • Screen sizes: 65in, 75in
  • Mini LED, 3840 x 2160 pixels, HRD10+ Adaptive, Dolby Vision, HLG, Filmmaker Mode, Dolby Atmos, DTS Play-Fi, Android TV

The MiniLED 9636 is almost identical to the 9506 above, apart from the fact that it also comes with a Bowers & Wilkins sound system built into its stand.

This 3.1.2 system provides 70W of power across all channels, while two upfiring units provide extra height for Dolby Atmos tracks.

Like all of Philips premium models in 2021, it comes with DTS Play-Fi so can hook up to other wireless speakers around the home and become part of a multiroom audio setup.
