[CES 2014] CES is a great opportunity for companies to share their latest technology advancements not just to show off their prowess, but also to offer customers a chance to purchase their latest technological products. Sharp has recently unveiled 8K devices which are presumably more for show than for purchase, but if you’d like to actually learn more about products that you can purchase, fret not because Sharp has you covered as well through their new range of AQUOS Quattron+ (Q+) television devices that will range in the 60-inch, 70-inch, and 80-inch classes that will feature Full HD panels but at the same time also have the ability to play 4K content thanks to its upscaling technology.Since these devices use Full HD panels, Sharp claims that they will be a lot more affordable compared to 4K televisions available in the market at the moment, which we have to admit do come in at pretty steep prices for top of the line models. There will be varying Q+ models, such as the UQ lineup which will be priced ranging from $2,999.99 up to $5,999.99, and the SQ lineup which will be priced slightly cheaper and will range from $2,299.99 and will go up to $3,099.99, depending on which size you are going for.
Both lineups will offer Full HD displays and upscaling technology, but with the UQ lineup, these models will sport a titanium brushed solid aluminum bezel, while the SQ lineup will feature a silver-brushed plastic thin bezel, which we guess helped to reduce its costs as well.
For those who don’t need such advanced technology, so to speak, Sharp will also have their regular AQUOS television lineup that comes in 60-inch, 70-inch, 80-inch, and 90-inch classes. They will come with Full HD support along with Sharp’s SharpCentral Smart TV platform, and will be priced ranging anywhere between $1,299.99, up to a whopping $8,899.99, which we can only assume is the price for their 90” models. Sharp’s new television lineup is expected to be available come Spring 2014.
