Today, Philips Electronics India held a press event for the media which turned out to be a starry one that had everyone’s eyes glittering with desire. Wondering what is Philips’ latest offering? Read on to find out the connection between Katrina Kaif and diamonds and of course Philips.

The main product that was unveiled was the one-of-a-kind diamond-encrusted Ambilight FlatTV. This 42-inch Ambilight LCD HDTV has been crafted in conjunction with New York-based jewelry company A.Link.

Even more special is the fact that Philips has specially developed this sparkling TV as a unique and one-off celebration of the millionth Ambilight FlatTV.

It demonstrates that consumers are seeking an exceptional viewing experience which only Ambilight can provide. We are proud to host the Diamond Ambilight FlatTV in India and showcase its artistic brilliance.”

The diamond-encrusted Philips Ambilight FlatTV is undoubtedly the most expensive TV at a whopping price of $150,000 (Rs. 59,03,250). This single piece will be shown at different events around the world and will finally be auctioned off to charity sometime later this year.
