Chart Edit

The Philips 55PUK4900 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were released more than a year ago also do not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering alternative televisions which also have a built-in camera including the LG 105UC9[plb_2828825_price], or the Samsung UN88JS9500[plb_3186351_price] which also has a higher rating.
