Sharp announced its first Ultra HD TVs in January 2013, but we had to wait 9 months before seeing a Sharp Ultra HD TV in stores. Sharp originally planned to launch 60-inch TVs, but has decided to launch a 70-inch instead.

The 70-inch TV has a 120 Hz LCD panel with 3840x2160 pixels, four times Full HD. It has received the THX4K certification for its accurate color and picture reproduction, and it can naturally upscale non-4K content such as TV channels, DVDs and Blu-ray via the Revelation 4K Upscaler chip. Four HDMI inputs are available, but Sharp makes no mention of HDMI 2.0.

The TV has a sleet metallic black frame and a minimalistic design, with a discrete 6-speaker system at the bottom. It comes preloaded with 4K photos and has a wallpaper mode that Sharp imagines you will enjoy when not watching TV. You can also connect external devices via the built-in SD card reader or one of the two USB ports.

Sharp has implemented its SmartCentral platform with access to services such as Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, YouTube, Pandora, Rhapsody and more. You can control it with the remote control or from your iOS or Android smartphone with the Sharp Beam app.

Sharps’s 70-inch LC-70UD1U is available in U.S. stores now. Sharp says that the suggested retail prices is $7499, but it is already available for less than $6000
