TP Vision, the company that markets Philips televisions in Europe, is currently working on an Android TV 8 (Oreo) update for a large number of models. Even models that were launched in 2014 would receive the software update, according to toengel.net based on their own sources
Android TV Oreo for large number of Philips TVs
The Philips 4K Ultra HD televisions that have a MediaTek processor could expect the update, and that means that even 2014 models can get the latest version of the Android TV smart TV platforms. However, when the updates are rolled out exactly is not clear.
Android TV 8 (Oreo) was recently announced by Google. This latest version of the Android TV smart TV platform offers a completely new design of the home screen, with more focus on content. The big tiles in the first row are now a thing of the past.
According to Google, the goal is that the user must be able to go directly to his favorite content (film, series, etc.) within one click. In so-called channels, similar content is packed together to make it easier to search and select. In addition, the integration of the Google Assistant becomes a lot more important and more prominent.
As soon as TP Vision officially announces the updates for the Philips televisions, we will let you know immediately.
