Sharp have just announced the new Aquos Quattron G series to the market over in Japan.
The new Quattron G models all feature the new Quattron technology which makes use of red, green, blue and yellow color filters (with yellow being an additional color) to bring more natural and realistic colors.
Sharp have announced six new models in the Quattron G series with sizes ranging from 40-inch to a massive 80-inches.
The 40, 46, 52, and 60-inch models will be released June 10th 2012, with the 70, and 80-inch models following shortly after on June 20th. This is of course in Japan. We hope we will see these models in the rest of the world soon. It’s not yet clear if they will keep the same name or not.
There are currently no suggested retail prices just yet, but the 80-inch model is expected to go for 950,000 yen (approx US $11,660), and the 40-inch for 160,000 yen (approx US$1,900).
Sharp say that the average Japanese user watch their TV from a distance of 2.4m on average, and with a 60-inch or larger HDTV experience a more realistic sensation from that distance.
Using a newly developed image processor powered by a dual core CPU the speed and accuracy of the processor has been improved. It automatically judges whether a yellow color pixel should be used rather than using the red and green sub pixels. Reproducing colors and textures have become more accurate thanks to this technology.
