Polaroid released details on its decently affordable Google Cast TVs earlier this week, and now Philips is showing off its 6000 Series Google Cast Ultra HD TVs. They'll be available in July. The 6000 Series TVs are available in four sizes — 43 inches, 49 inches, 55 inches, and 65 inches — and start at $649.99. So far, only the 55-inch and 49-inch versions are listed on Philips' website. All the models come with 4K resolution and can read HDR metadata.

We're probably going to see a whole lot more of these Google Cast TVs, HDGuru reports, as manufacturers look for ways to make TVs smart without having to develop a proprietary smart OS, like Samsung and Sony. Basically, it's one of the easier ways to get apps on TVs without reinventing the wheel.
