Sharp AQUOS 8K LED TV is The First 8K TV Announced in the Philippines

Last Thursday - May 17, 2018, at the Grand Ballroom of Shangri-La Hotel at The Fort, legendary Japanese tech giant Sharp Corporation officially unveiled the Sharp AQUOS 8K LED TV, which is set to be the first commercially available 8K TV in our country.

To quote Mr. Toshio Kawata, Deputy General Manager TV System Business Unit of Sharp Corporation, during the event:

"Today, I am excited to announce the launch of Sharp’s AQUOS 8K LED TV tuned for Asia in the end of year 2018 here in the Philippines to lead the 8K Display Industry."

8K, which has image dimensions of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels, is the latest technology for ultra-high-definition screens, having 16 times the pixel-density and resolution of Full-HD resolution at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and 4 times that of 4K at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.

According to the company, Sharp AQUOS 8K LED TV reproduces images at "ultimate reality", with ultra-fine details the naked eye cannot capture.

So why did Sharp decide to herald the advent of the 8K age not only in the Philippines but also in other parts of the world?

Simply put, Sharp AQUOS 8K LED TV is part of the company's continuous efforts to innovate and provide consumers with world-class quality products that meet the needs and wants of consumers.

According to Mr. Kawata, "Apart from displaying TV broadcasts and other media contents, 8K will dramatically impact many aspects of our lives: medical, business, security, education, transportation and many more."

As of writing, Sharp Philippines Corporation has yet to disclose the official pricing details of the Sharp AQUOS 8K LED TV. I believe they'll do that once they are ready to make the TV available in stores later this year. Stay tuned for updates!
