Are your eyeballs ready?

Sharp Philippines launched yesterday the world’s first 4K TV with 8K resolution, the Sharp AQUOS XU Series (LC-80XU930X/LC-70XU830X). That’s a grand total of 33.18 million pixels across the display.

The AQUOS XU Series achieves 8K resolution on a 4K panel with the X8-Master Engine Pro upscaling circuit. This also enhances the color gamut in tandem with Sharp’s Quattron Pro color technology.

Other features of this TV include Rich Color Pro Technology, which enhances the power of 4-Color technology with a new direct backlight that expands the color reproduction range by 40 percent, and Ultra Dynamic Range Pro, which utilizes the new direct backlight with control area dimming technology to produce great contrast. The N-Black Anti-Glare Technology (LC-80XU930X only) also contributes to clearer color reproduction.

The Sharp AQUOS XU Series features a sleek aluminum frame  and an adjustable loop stand (LC-80XU930X only) that can be adjusted up to 40cm on the inner portion.

Switch channels and access features quicker with the newly developed smart remote control equipped with a Sharp original touch pad and a slide bar.

Because it’s an Android TV, the XU Series allows users to give commands using the Smart Remote with Google Voice Search function. Stream movies and TV shows, listen to music, play games exclusive to Android and enjoy instant access to Netflix, YouTube, and more. Google Cast is built-in.

The Sharp AQUOS XU Series is now available in all leading appliance stores nationwide.
