It boasts double the resolution of 4K TVs today
Sharp continues to make its presence felt by introducing new technology to the Philippine market. During the press launch at Shangri-la Fort, Sharp unveiled its line of 4K and 8K Aquos LED TVs—both in Android Nougat and EasySmart flavors.
Speaking of the latter, the Japanese brand is pushing technology to the limit: While 4K content is all the rage nowadays, Sharp is bringing 8K to the mainstream. Since its official unveiling last October 2017, Sharp has brought its Aquos 8K LED TV to China, Japan, Taiwan, the European Market, and the Philippines.
Aside from boasting of an insane 8K resolution, the LCD-70SX970A comes with Android Nougat and support for HDR10 and DV content.
While 8K content is still considered a niche market, Sharp TV System Business Unit Deputy General Manager Toshio Kawata thinks that everyone will benefit from it. “8K will dramatically impact many aspects of our lives: medical, business, security, education, transportation, and many more,” Kawata said.
No price has been given to the LCD-70SX970A as of press time.
