Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB: Features, Specifications

The new Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB features a 43-inch MVA LCD panel with 3840 x 2160 4K Ultra HD resolution. To help reduce annoying reflections, the panel comes with an Anti-Glare 3H coating. As we mentioned already, the monitor is DisplayHDR 1000 certified, which means the panel is capable of reaching a peak brightness of over 1000 nits. For superior contrast, the Momentum 436M6VBPAB uses a local-dimming backlight. According to Philips, the panel has a static contrast ratio of 4000:1 and a response time of 4ms (Gray to Gray). Philips also claims 97.6% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour gamut and 10-bit colour (8-bit + FRC) support. Apart from being capable of delivering great HDR performance, the monitor integrates Philips’  Ambiglow technology, which creates an image-matching halo of light on the rear wall to create a more immersive experience.

On the connectivity front, Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB features HDMI 2.0, Displayport 1.2, mini Displayport, and USB Type-C display inputs. And while Philips has confirmed that the monitor supports Adaptive Sync, the variable refresh rate range hasn’t been specified yet. The native refresh rate, however, is 60 Hz.

Apart from the display inputs mentioned above, the Momentum 436M6VBPAB also includes a USB Type-C port (DP Alt mode) and 2x USB 3.0 ports with fast charging supports. For connecting audio devices, the monitor has a PC audio-in/headphone out port. Like other 4K monitors on the market currently, the latest from Philips features a flicker-free backlight and has a LowBlue Mode to cut down on harmful blue-light emissions. The monitor’s integrated stand only offers tilt adjustments between -5 to 10 degrees.
