We still have to be patient for about two months until Philips Hue will officially present its new products. Today I can already give you a small preview of some of the new products that will be presented at the end of August or beginning of September.
As we already suspected a few weeks ago, Philips Hue is working on brighter light sources. Instead of the usual 806 lumens, they will be brighter in the future – and even much brighter than we could assume so far.
Thus, the standard-size bulbs will be able to offer 1,100 lumens in the future. In addition, there will be a larger lamp with 1,600 lumens, which will be available in future not only as Hue White, but also as Hue White Ambiance and Hue White and Color Ambiance. The larger design is necessary due to the higher heat development of the LEDs and the therefore necessary passive cooling.
New filament lamps feature White Ambiance
Philips Hue will also continue to expand its filament range. The E27 lamps in the filament shapes Standard, Edison and Globe will soon also be available as White Ambiance. Similar to third-party suppliers, Philips Hue will install two filaments with warm white and cool white LEDs to adjust the colour temperature. The maximum brightness is 550 lumens.
Completely new in the range is the smallest filament lamp by Philips Hue so far, which will have an E14 base for the European region. At the start, however, only dimmable white technology with a fixed colour temperature will be used.
That’s not all, by the way. Still top secret are some new Hue products that are supposed to have Gradient technology. So far, this has only been used in the Gradient Lightstrip and enables the simultaneous output of several colours.
