Sharp debuts first 4K Android TVs
The Japanese Sharp has launched its first 4K TV sets, which run Google’s Android mobile operating system. According to the company, the new TV sets are now available in stores. The new Sharp 4K Android TV sets belong to two new Sharp lines called UE30 and UH30 and include 60-inch, 70-inch and 80-inch models.
The new product lines differ in the number of TV sets offered – the UE30 line includes three models with 60-inch, 70-inch and 80-inch displays, while the UH30 line has 70-inch and 80-inch models but is said to offer more vibrant colors. Just like with any new technology the new Sharp TV sets are expensive – the 60-inch model starts at USD 2099, while the largest 80-inch model costs USD 6299.
Sharp knows that these TV sets are costly and that’s why the Japanese company has also released the UB line, which includes affordable 4K TV sets. The line offers a 43-inch model, which starts at USD 599. Compared to the USD 2099 entry level price for a 60-inch 4K Android TV, the USD 599 asked for a 43-inch 4K UB television seems like pocket change.
