Although the bulb is a yellow-orange on its plastic outside, it gives off a white light. Rated at 2700 Kelvin, it's a more yellow light than the white light some LEDs give off. Because color temperature can be tuned with LEDs, consumers can sometimes choose between white and the warmer yellow-white.
The shape of the Philips bulb also improves the light dispersal so that it's more even. Traditionally, LEDs have been used for downlights and other directional lighting applications.
