Sharp likes 'em large and has today announced the launch of its new flagship smart TVs, for the UK, including the giant 80” LC-80LE857K. The LE857K series so includes a junior 70-inch model in the LC-70LE857K.

The LE857K series are the flagship TVs in Sharp’s AQUOS LED range, promising Sharp’s best ever picture quality and natural colour reproduction thanks to third generation Quattron 3D and its 800 Hz Active motion technology.

Alberico Lissoni, VP Consumer Electronics for Sharp Europe, said “Whether you’re a sports fan who wants to be in the stadium, or you’re looking for that cinema experience at home, the LE857K series makes you feel like you’re there. Don’t just watch it, get immersed in the action.”

The series’ design uses a slim 15mm pure aluminium bezel and an open metal stand designed to create the floating effect which is currently all the rage.

The smart LC-80LE857K and LC-70LE857K include the new AQUOS NET+ open browser, with broadcast TV, internet, social networking, apps, video on demand and stored media, all accessible through one interface.


Additional features include an optional Wallpaper mode, which turns the TV into a piece of art or photo frame when in stand-by mode. Sharp says it displays the image with a low brightness level, so it’s like looking at a ‘real’ picture, which fits in with the style of the room. When in Wallpaper mode, the TV uses low power and can be set on a timer.

The new AQUOS Remote Lite app, available on the App Store and Google Play later this month, turns Android and iOS smartphones and tablets into remote controls which can change channels, pause, play and rewind TV, control volume, record shows and more with only a swipe or tap of the screen.

We've never really been sold on Sharp's Quattron technology, Unlike standard RGB TVs, which only offer Red Green and Blue subpixels, Quattron 3D uses a fourth Yellow subpixel (RGBY). Sharp claims this means better definition, smoother diagonal lines and smoother colour gradations, which look more natural but we don't really get the point.

The Sharp LC-80LE857K and LC-70LE857K are available to buy later this month from major retailers.
