I saw that in the current Philips advertising in commercial television:

did philips steal a design idea from B & O ??
Why is not there such a retro design alternative from B & O at an affordable price?

 

This OLED TV is available for 55" and 65".

I saw this promotional video on German television and immediately thought that this

was a revised version of Beovision 7 40 with Beolab 7 2!

Isn't this similarity immediately recognizable?

Erm, not at all, no.

Agreed. Looks like a cheap Philips OLED TV with Hue lights stuck on the back of

it with a third party Soundbar. The BV7 40 was a design statement, one that cannot be replicated with super thin OLED panels.

Philips have their own Ambilight tech, its pretty cool actually. I had a Designline 55 Glass panel TV years ago.

 

If you want to see what B&O copied, look at the Loewe Individual Compose Speaker for the pole stand. Then again you can say Loewe copied the BV7...

The Ambilight part is great. But the 980 series of Philips remind me vaguely of a Loewe. And a Loewe vaguely reminds me of a BV. The Philips with the stand is not bad eitherway.
