The ultimate picture technology - OLED
Delivering the ultimate picture quality, this Philips 55 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.
3-sided Ambilight for enhanced immersion
Unique to Philips, Ambilight technology expands the picture’s presence, giving a more immersive and engaging experience. With intelligent LEDs around the top and sides of 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 55” TV.
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 55OLED706 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.
Gaming made better
With HDMI 2.1 connectivity at its heart, the Philips 55OLED706 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 begining 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 55” 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 55OLED706 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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Colin NG10 from Philips Ambi light 55" Awesome Bought 65" but found it a little too big for my room - Richer sounds swapped it for 55" fabulous customer service - came round after shop closed to swap - try getting Currys to do that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by komiszkrissz from Stunning picture quality and connectivity My review is gonna be a bit biased since I'm absolute fan of Philips Ambilight technology. It boosts immersion In an excellent way and I honestly think once anyone experience watching colourful movies with Ambilight there is no turning back. Especially if you have other Philips smart lighting in house because all can be easily synchronised with the TV. About 55OLED706/12: I still own the 55OLED803 which is an excellent OLED TV. Great set of applications pre-installed, excellent picture quality. 706 improves on that a big time: - Dolby Atmos sound (all applications that supports it automatically passthrough Atmos sound when available (netflix, appletv) and with a compatible AVR that's the best sound you can get - Dolby Vision which makes HDR content look even better - significant improvement on responsiveness on remote controls (apps start faster, button press has less delay) - applications (there are a few apps that are not available on most modern TVs including AppleTV+) - HDMI2.1 support (Ps5 / Xbox Series console can reach up to 120Hz with super low latency with Variable Refresh Rate) All this comes with excellent customer support from Philips(I has an issue with iPlayer and created a ticket and next day I was called by an expert from UK and not from a call-center where nobody know anything except the standard copy-paste help content) Overall I would absolutely recommend over any competition just because of Ambilight alone not mentioning the price / value proposition with HDMI2.1 and Dolby support).
