4K TV powered by Android

Philips has announced a range of new products which will be based on the Android operating system, all of which will be arriving in the second quarter of this year. The new 8109 and 8209 series are 48 and 55 inch sets which output content in 1080p , and are said to “feature a very responsive gaming capability” and are listed as coming with a quad-core processor, which is interesting. Android will also be powering Philip’s new 55 inch 8800 series, which outputs content in 4K and powered by an unspecified hex-core processor.
The TV’s will ship with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and come with Chrome, Play Movies, Music, Youtube, and other media apps, pre-installed. There’s also full Google Play Store integration,
There’s only 2.7GB worth of storage space for extra apps and media content in the TV itself. Fortunately, the range of USB ports and WiFi connectivity means that you can connect an external drive somewhere else. As well as a healthy selection of interfaces and ports, the TVs can also grab content via Philip’s Remote app, Wi-Fi Miracast, and SimplyShare, which will allow for content streaming to and from mobile devices.
