Sharp P9000

2017 Sharp TV line-up announced with 4K and HDR

The 2017 Sharps TVs are still “Hisense inside”. The Chinese brand is using the brand to enter the US market and will in 2017 launch five ranges of Sharp-branded 4K UHD TVs.

Sharp was one of the first brands to integrate Google’s Android TV platform but since Hisense took over it scaled back. The new TVs will instead feature Sharp’s “Smart Central” platform, which is quite frankly underwhelming.

If you can live with that the new Sharp do come with some interesting features. The star of the show is the P9500 series that features full-array local dimming, 4K resolution and support for HDR10. It is equipped with quantum dot technology in order to reproduce a wide color gamut (90% DCI-P3) and can apparently achieve over 1000 nits peak brightness.

P9500 will be available in 70 and 75” sizes for $6000 and $8000.

The other 9 series TV, Sharp P9000, will offer most of the same features but use edge LED instead. It will not hit the same 1000 nits figure either.

Sharp P9000 will be available in 50, 55 and 65” sizes for $1000, $1300, and $2000.

Additionally, Hisense will launch Sharp-branded P8000 and P7000 mid-range models. The P8000 offers full-array local dimming but no longer offers the wide color gamut (no quantum dots inside). It still claims to support HDR. P8000 will be available in 50, 55, 65 and 75-inch sizes.

The P7000 ditches full-array local dimming and quantum dots but still claims to support HDR10. It will be available in 43, 50, 55, and 65-inch sizes.

P8000 models will sell for $750 (50”), $850 (55”), $2000 (65”), and $2700 (75”). The P7000 will cost $450 (43”), $550 (50”), $650 (55”), and $1000 (65”). They will be available later in 2017.
