Sharp have claimed a world first with the launch of a new 8K TV. Its new 70-inch AQUOS 8K TV is said to be the first “consumer-use” TV with an 8K LCD panel and a HDMI input supporting 8K. The company states it produces “ultra-high-definition images with 16 times the resolution of full-HD which could not be expressed with 4K images... It reproduces images at ultimate reality, with ultra-fine details even the naked eye cannot capture”. China will be the first to receive the new 8K TV in October.
