Sharp to sell world’s 1st 8K TV in China from Oct
Sharp Corp will begin selling the world’s first 8K ultra high-definition TV in China from October and in Japan from December, the electronics maker said Thursday.
The 70-inch liquid crystal display Aquos 8K is expected to carry a price tag of around 60,000 yuan in China and about 1 million yen in Japan, or both around $9,000 when converted.
It will be capable of displaying greater contrast between the dark and light parts of an image and producing more vibrant colors. It will also upscale 4K and full HD images to 8K quality, the company said.
