Philips details four lines of new Smart TVs

Philips has just offered a first look at its upcoming range of Smart TVs. The 7000-series is the range-topper, getting active 3D support and two-player, full-screen gaming in 2D by showing a different image based on viewing angles. They can also convert 2D signals to 3D, and will be available in 40-, 46-, and 55-inch sizes. All get two 20W speakers, five HDMI inputs, three USB ports (for adding a mouse and keyboard, in addition to a thumb or hard drive), integrated Wi-Fi, and Ethernet. Philips' two-side Ambilight backlighting tech is built into the panel, and the sets have DLNA network streaming.

The 6000-series comes in 32-, 37-, 42-, 47-, and 55-inches, sharing most of the 7000's specs but downgrading to passive 3D tech, 12W speakers and four HDMI inputs. Both series have YouTube and Netflix apps built-in.

The 4000s don't have 3D tech, but get 1080p panels. Web access is present through Wi-Fi for streaming video, there is DLNA support, and expansion involves three USB ports, four HDMIs, and an A/V input. Available sizes will include 32-, 37-, 42-, and 47-inch models.

The entry-level 3500-series will range from 19- to 42-inch sizes and either 720p or 1080p resolutions. All have DLNA support, YouTube, three HDMI ports, two USB ports, and an add-on USB Wi-Fi adapter.

Finally, the 3000 range doesn't connect to the web but get 100Hz displays in 32-, 37-, 42-, and 47-inch screen. One USB port lets users connect thumb drives and all have three HDMI ports.

No prices are yet available, though the sets are due to ship sometime in the spring. [via SlashGear]
