The new Beyond 4K model offers 66 million subpixels.
At its CES 2015 press conference, Sharp has revealed its latest collection of 4K displays. Among the new sets is a model that simulates an 8K resolution.
The new 4K TVs will be available in three lines: the UB30, UE30, and UH30 series. The UB30 series will be available in sizes ranging from 43-inches to 65-inches. The UE30 line comes in sizes ranging from 60-inches to 80-inches and features the SmartCentral platform with Android TV, LED dimming, and a 480Hz refresh rate. Finally, the premium UH30 series comes in 70-inch and 80-inch models and offers a color-enhancing backlight and a higher 960Hz refresh rate. In addition, the company's Beyond 4K 80-inch model uses proprietary pixel-splitting and Quattron technologies to create 66 million subpixels. That's 42 million more subpixels than a traditional 4K set and 167 percent greater resolution, simulating a 7,680 x 4,320 picture.
Sharp's new 4K and Beyond 4K TVs will start shipping this Spring with prices ranging from $750 to $6,000.
