Smaller OLED screen
Although this is a smaller OLED TV, 4-sided Ambilight makes it appear much more immersive. This unique Philips technology enjoys its ultimate incarnation, with 4-sided Ambilight. Using intelligent LEDs all around the TV, colour from the picture is cast into the room – in real time. Colour, vibrancy and excitement move beyond the screen and into your living room to bring you a viewing experience beyond the ordinary, with this extraordinary Philips 48 inch TV.
The ultimate picture technology - OLED
Delivering the ultimate picture quality, this Philips 48 inch TV uses OLED technology. Unlike conventional LED TVs, OLED doesn't need a backlight. Each pixel makes its own colour and light. When they are turned off, they are completely black. With deeper blacks you get enhanced colours and astonishing contrast that allows you to enjoy the purest, most lifelike image.
Introducing artificial intelligence, with P5 AI Perfect Picture Engine
The P5 AI Perfect Picture engine is the ‘brain’ behind the picture and even ‘thinks’ in a similar way to us. The powerful processor uses deep-learning AI algorithms to get the most lifelike images possible. Maximising detail, colour realism and smooth motion, the P5 AI engine optimises OLED and Ambilight for a brilliant performance.
HDR to the max, with HDR10+
For the highest quality picture, HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology to date. With HDR10+ each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments. The 48OLED806 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.
Gaming made better
With HDMI 2.1 connectivity at its heart, the Philips 48OLED806 has many features that makes it the ideal choice for gaming. Once connected to one of the HDMI 2.1 sockets, ultra-low-latency mode is automatically selected when beginning game play. VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and FreeSync are supported, giving you the fastest and smoothest response possible. Unique to Philips, Ambilight’s gaming mode brings another dimension of immersion.
Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, this Philips 48” OLED TV is also compatible with Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas around the world. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.
Dolby Atmos for enhanced sound
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in, the Philips 48OLED806 decodes Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. Featuring a built-in 2.1 speaker set-up with subwoofer and a 50 watt amp, it provides powerful, well-rounded sound.
Android TV for smart TV
In a complicated world of catch-up TV, Android TV makes sense of it all. Using a clear, intuitive interface, Android lets you effortlessly switch between Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Disney+ and many other services. Android lets you pick up where you left off in the latest series or check out new movie releases – all without getting lost within complicated menus.
Voice control with built-in Google Assistant and works with Alexa
Working via the built-in Android system, Google Assistant helps you find content, apps and even controls compatible smart home devices, such as the Philips Hue lighting system. All this is available by simple voice command. Alternatively, connect your Amazon Echo or similar Alexa device and use voice commands via Alexa (Works with Amazon Alexa).
Beautiful design – right down to the leather-backed remote
Featuring an ultra-thin metal bezel, the 48OLED806 is a minimalist masterpiece. The quality of design extends to the remote control, which features a tactile, Muirhead leather-backed finish and backlit keys. Discreet feet are easily detachable for wall mounting the TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Babadoobey from Amazing OLED tv in the smaller size bracket Fantastic tv, amazing picture quality and small footprint for a 48 inch screen given the edge to edge design. Paired with a Sonos Beam Gen 2 and 2x Sonos One surrounds (also highly recommended) it’s a real powerhouse of a setup for a medium sized room that you don’t want dominated by a larger tv. Design is aesthetically pleasing and delivery was fast, chuck in the 6 year guarantee and it’s a really good deal all in all. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moobear from Excellent TV After much deliberation, a number of emails, a 100 mile round trip and some great advice from the guys in Chester, I bought this TV. The picture is simply breathtaking, the sound is pretty good although doesn't touch my soundbar (of course). Thinking the ambilight was a gimmick that I'd never use, how wrong I was. It simply makes everything much more immersive. Great our of the box, easy to set up, superb unit. Couldn't ask for more. One slight niggle, the so called £170 worth of films, are all pretty old and to be found on Amazon or Netflix. Doesn't really bother me and I think the offer has finished now anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magpie1 from Excellent quality. I've had this for a couple of weeks now and I'm very pleased with the TV. The price from Richer Sounds was very good and the delivery actually came a day earlier than expected. The TV was easy to set up, straight out of the box, though I haven't been through all the, many available, tweaks and adjustments yet! I wondered about the Ambilight feature, but only a couple of with/without comparisons and I like the 'with' a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by J kear from OLED the new TV experience l! Bought this tv a couple weeks ago as needed a new TV and wanted a change from Samsung. I had read the What Hi 2020 awards winner review and waited for the price to come down. I spoke to Croydon store they didn’t have the model on display but similar version which Mark demonstrated - I initially thought the OLED was abit of a gimmick but since watching tv/sport/films I wouldn’t go back to standard tv! Only problem I initially had was setting up the sound on my QM2 sound bar - I spoke to the Richer Sounds technical telephone line and Croydon store who were really helpful and I’ve sorted the issue - If you haven’t got an up to date sound bar like me I’d recommend using the digital sound cable / TOSLINK cable as best sound option watching TV / Disney / Blu ray etc. The tv only has x 2 4k hdmi ports the rest are EARC HDMI which is enough for me but something to keep in mind if looking for high end use age. As always excellent customer service from Richer Sounds and piece of mind with 6 year guarantee. Thanks Richer Sounds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WibbletheCat from Great picture Bought for my parents on the basis of the positive reviews this TV has received and it doesn't disappoint. Easy enough to assemble and set up. Picture and sound very good (especially compared to what it replaced).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ian1950 from Impressive Just Installed in a bedroom and picture and sound are both really good. In fact the picture is almost as good as my Sony Bravia which was almost twice the price. Ambient light is an interesting feature and took some getting used to but we are well impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Fantastic picture I wasn't going to spend quite so much on a TV but I'm really glad I did. The OLED picture is absolutely stunning; sharp image, vibrant colours and really deep blacks. Really easy to set up and use and very good sound
