Philips Hue launches several new products here at IFA 2019, including an impressive new filament collection that adds a bit of old charm to the mix.
Here's everything new in the Philips Hue portfolio announced at the show!
Philips Hue Filament Collection
Up to 16 million colors and the ability to control your entire lighting setup with just your phone is fantastic. But if you're not ready to switch to smart bulbs because you prefer the look of an old-school bulb, the wait is over.
The new Philips Hue Filament Collection looks just like an Edison style bulb with its luminous inner winding. It's still an LED bulb and comes with all the features you would expect from a Hue smart bulb. You can turn the brightness up or down, adjust and control the bulb network, and do a lot more using just your phone. With up to 550 lumens, these also become very bright.
Philips Hue starts at € 19.99 (~ $ 22). The Filament Collection goes on sale in Europe next week and will be available in the US in October with a starting price of $ 24.99.
Hue Go Portable Smart Lamp
The Hue Go Smart Light is an extremely comfortable multicolor that can be used in many colors, where you are going. However, the original version is far from perfect, and Philips Hue strives to address many of these 2019 upgrade issues.
The most important upgrade is battery life. It makes a significant jump from just 3 hours to about 10 hours with the new model. Like the other smart lights, the new Hue Go comes with Bluetooth compatibility. This allows you to control it by phone or voice with the help of smart home helpers. Finally, the loading port is easier to reach and brighter than the older version.
The updated Hue Go portable smart lamp will be available in Europe next week and will ship to the US in November at $ 79.99.
Philips Hue Smart Plug
Philips Smart Plug allows you to add smart to your existing desk lamp or floor lamp. Well, that may be a little overpriced. What you can do is turn the lamp on or off using the app, your voice, or a smart accessory. Smart plugs are nothing new, but obviously Philips wanted it on the market.
Philips Smart Plug also launches in Europe next week, priced at € 29.95 ($ 33). It will be released in the US in October at a price of $ 39.95 .
