Sharp says bigger is better with an 80 inch telly

How much room does your current TV occupy? Maybe you’ve got a 42, 55, or one of those massive 65 inch models that we started seeing this year. Whatever you have, it doesn’t hold a candle to what Sharp is releasing this week.

Currently the biggest consumer TV available in Australia, Sharp’s 80 inch 3D Quattron LCD TV aims to offer a bigger picture than its competitors by combining a massive Japanese LCD panel, Aquomotion Pro technology, and Yamaha audio to deliver what Sharp says is “unrivalled picture quality and impressive functionality.”

“Throughout the years Sharp has produced many first-to-market products that meet the needs of consumers,” said Mark Beard, Sharp’s National Marketing Manager for Australia. “Recent years have seen consumers, within Australia in particular, looking to get more bang for their buck whilst technologically advancing beyond the 21st  century.”

“Sharp’s 80-Inch IPTV is the biggest to hit the Australian market allowing consumers to bring the cinematic experience into their own home.”

The massive TV release come as Sharp celebrates its 100 year anniversary, with the big event almost heralding a big product like the LC-80LE940X 80 inch LCD TV.

Inside the TV, you’ll find a dual-core processor, USB playback, and 3D functionality, though from what we understand, the 3D is of the active kind, with the TV arriving with only one pair of glasses. Smart functionality is also present, offering support for YouTube, Skype, web browsing, and social media through the Sharp Aquos Net service.

This isn’t the first gigantic TV we’ve heard Sharp will be releasing this year, with reports that an even bigger 90 inch TV will hit Australia later this year.

Meanwhile, if 80 inches is more than enough for your living room, you should be able to find the Sharp LC-80LE940X in electrical stores for $10,999 by the end of August.
