Sharp's new Ultra HD TVs have Android TV

05 Jan 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sharp will be releasing a range of new Ultra HD TVs in 2015, starting at $999. Three ranges will include the new Android TV platform and the TVs will be available in up to 80 inches.

New Sharp TVs with Android TV

Sharp will release the high-end UH30 and UE30 models along with cheaper UB30 and some Full HD models.

The UH30 is the flagship model and it will be available in 70” (LC70UH30) and 80” (LC80UH30) sizes for $3,199 and $5,999, respectively. Both will feature “Spectros”, which increases the color gamut, local dimming, as well as HDMI 2.0. The TVs will also be THX certified and use Quattron / pixel-splitting technology to increase the sub-pixel count to 66 million (42 million more than in a typical 4K TV), which can improve detailing, according to Sharp.

UH30 will, like the UE30, come with Google’s new Android TV platform that looks promising. Sony and Philips will also use Android TV in its 2015 TVs along with several media box manufacturers, making it the first cross-manufacturer Smart TV platform.

UE30 also comes with Android TV but has no THX certification. It will be available in 60” (LC60UE30), 70” (LC70UE30), and 80” (LC80UE30) for $1,999, $2,799 and $5,399, respectively.

The cheaper UB30 will be available in 43” (LC43UB30U), 50” (LC50UB30U), 55” (LC55UB30U), and 65” (LC65UB30) for $749, $999, $1,199 and $2,299, respectively. These TVs will not offer Android TV.

Sharp also announced a few new Full HD models, including a 70-inch UQ model with Android TV and new 60 and 70” EQ models without Android TV.

The TVs will start shipping in spring, except for the 80-inch UH30 which will be available in late 2015.
