Philips Elevation 60
Philips' latest TV is its slimmest yet and is expected to hit shelves later this year, sporting a new four-sided Ambilight feature

Philips has announced the release of its latest TV, the 60-inch Elevation. 

At 13.5mm deep, the Elevation is Philips's slimmest set ever and will be on sale throughout the UK for £2,800 from September.

The company claims the Elevation, featuring Perfect Pixel HD, offers "flicker-free" pictures with vivid colours and a sharp picture – and 900HZ Perfect Motion Rate is said to guarantee smooth and precise picture movement. 

The TV also features Wi-Fi Miracast and SimplyShare, designed to let users stream content from their smartphones to the TV screen.

Wi-Fi Smart Screen pulls digital broadcast TV onto users' smartphones, while Multi-room watching means programmes can be streamed to another TV in your home. 

More after the break

The free MyRemote app for iOS and Android, meanwhile, lets users record favourite shows on the go.

A selection of Philips Smart TV apps also ensures that users are able to access – online – video on demand, Skype, social media services and catch-up TV.

The Elevation also comes with Ambilight 4-sided XL which, according to Philips, creates an "illusion of a TV floating in a halo of light".
