Sharp Electronics isn’t sitting idly by in the “whose is bigger?” battle. Hot on the heels of announcements of Sony and Samsung’s 52-inchers, the folks at Sharp have announced a new series LCD screens in their Aquos line.
Each set supports 1080p resolution, and they range in sizes from 42-inches to 52-inches diagonal, with either side or bottom speaker locations. The new panels are said to offer improved contrast (2000:1 dynamic) using “Black Advanced Super View Full Spec HD LCD panels”, and a fast 4ms refresh rate. These specs don’t sound quite as good as the Samsung specs, but they’re still a significant improvement over prior years’ models. US pricing and release dates have not yet been announced.
