It’s 85-inches from corner to corner and boasts a resolution of 7680×4320, which is 16 times more pixels than a 1920×1080 Full HD display. Additionally, while a Full HD TV requires just one HDMI port to push pictures to the set, Sharp’s LV-85001 requires four of the newer HDMI 2.0 variety.
While we highly doubt that the average person will be saving up for one, Sharp hopes it can push a few to distinct business clients (like high-end graphics professionals) before its launch at the end of October.
