Sharp is now shipping its AQUOS Q+ collection of advanced LCD LED HDTVs. The displays use proprietary technology to scale 4K content while offering significantly more subpixels than a standard HDTV.


The AQUOS Q+ series comes in two variations: the SQ and the UQ line. The SQ lineup comes in 60-inch ($2400) and 70-inch ($3400) models. Meanwhile, the premium UQ line comes in 60-inch ($3000), 70-inch ($4000), and 80-inch ($6000) models, and features THX certified picture, Active 3D with two Bluetooth 3D glasses, an AquoMotion 960 240Hz panel, and Super Bright technology. Both lines use the company's  Quattron panel and Revelation technology. Though they still use 1080p panels, each pixel in the display is divided into two, resulting in 16 million subpixels -- 10 million more than a standard HDTV. Likewise, the TVs can accept 4K signals for playback at near-4K resolution, and can upscale standard HD images to make them sharper and more vivid.

The LC-60SQ15U, LC-70SQ15U, LC-60UQ17U, and LC-70UQ17U are now available for purchase from Amazon, and the LC-80UQ17U should be available soon.
