It’s not just Sony playing the thin TV game, with Sharp announcing its latest AQUOS LCD TV boasting 2.3cms thick body.
Available in 52 and 65-inch screen sizes, the XS1 series features advanced contrast ratio of 10,000:1, 6ms response time, detachable speaker system, five 2.1-channel speakers, and 100Hz picture enhancement technology, plus gallery mode for displaying photos from a USB stick.
This premium 1080p-capable range may not be as thin as the XS1, but it does offer 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 450cd/m2 brightness. Sharp hasn’t mentioned any of its other feature set at present, but as a premium TV, I’d expect it to pack in most of Sharp’s audiovisual technologies.
Available in 32, 37, 46, and 52-inch screen sizes.
