Sharp’s new 4K Aquos TVs have Android TV baked in
Unveiled today at CES in Las Vegas, the sets boast displays up to 80 inches in size and flagship Sharp features like AquoMotion and AquoDimming, but as you might expect, they don’t come cheap.
Sharp actually announced three new sets today, but only two of them have Android TV built-in. The UE30 is the more affordable of the two, with prices starting at $1,999.99 for the 60-inch option. In addition to the features mentioned above, you get SmartCentral 4.0, a quad-core processor, the Revelation upscaler, and a “wallpaper mode.”
The UE30 also boasts dual stand placement options, 4 HDMI ports, 3 USB ports, and Wi-Fi connectivity. It’s also available in 70- and 80-inch options, which will cost you $2,799.99 and $5,399.99 respectively.
Not expensive enough for you? Then check out Sharp’s top-of-the-line UH30 series, which delivers everything you get from the UE30, as well as SPECTROS technology, THX certification, and better post-processing. The UH30 is available in only two options — 70 and 80 inches — which are priced at $3,199.99 and $5,999.99.
Sharp’s third TV is the UB30, which is a budget option that starts at $749.99 for a 43-inch screen and goes all the way up to 65 inches for $2,299.99. You’re still getting a 4K set and many of the features that come with the sets above, but there is no Android TV — though you could add that yourself with a relatively cheap set-top box.
Sharp’s new sets will be available in the U.S. this spring.
