Sub $1,800 4K Sharp OLED TV Revealed
Sharp TVs are back with the Japanese Company giving journalists a sneak peek overnight in Europe of a new range that could be in Australia early next year.
Currently being sold exclusively at The Good Guys, Sharp has taken the wraps off its latest AV offerings, a new 4K QLED TV that is tipped to sell for sub $1,800.
Not short on top end specs the new range shown in Europe, includes a new EQ Series TV that has Android TV built in a ‘frameless’ design and support for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision with 12-bit colour reproduction.
The Android TV operating systems feature all the usual streaming apps – Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube, Disney+, while Google Chromecast lets you stream content from your mobile device or laptop to the new Sharp OLED TV.
For gaming fans, the new EQ TV supports Google Stadia, the tech giant’s online gaming service.
Because of its price the TV only has 4K at 60Hz rather than 120Hz, so it might not be the TV for next-gen machines, such as the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, but for watching movies it’s perfect.
The real standout is the audio with a pair of 12W two-way speakers from Harman Kardon built into the TV.
This audio system has been designed to take advantage and get the most out of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound codecs.
Sharp has also announced the 2.1 HT-SBW202 soundbar.
The company says it outputs a total of 200W and comes with a “powerful wireless subwoofer for optimal cinema-style bass performance”. Connectivity includes HDMI ARC, optical input and Bluetooth 4.2 for streaming audio.
Sharp TVs are distributed by Tempo Australia.
