A Philips LED TV costing INR 9999 ($143) is now official, and comes straight after the launch of the most affordable television in the world the Detel D1 that costs just INR 3999 ($57). Hence, we cannot help but potentially state that the economical television segment in India is potentially set for a larger boost in the near future.
USP of Philips’ latest 22-inch INR 9999 TV is that it is built with the LED technology; not LCD as that of Detel D1. If you are alright with using 22-inch TVs, then the Philips INR 9999 device would be available at both online as well as offline platforms beginning from the second week of December 2018.
