Sharp has unveiled its best and most expensive television yet. The ICC Purios is a 60-inch Ultra HD television that is expected to hit the Japanese market on the 20th of February 2013. Sony says that this 4K TV will cost Y2,625,000 or about $31,283.
This TV will be sold on a made-to-order basis. Sony doesn’t know yet if it will sell the 4K TV overseas. Sure the price is crazy, but a Sony spokesperson says: “There may be other 4K TVs on the market, but our 4K TV offers images that are so realistic that viewers feel as if they were experiencing the scene in real life.” So if you want the best, be prepared to pay.
The ICC (Integrated Cognitive Creation) Purios will have a 3,840 × 2,160 screen resolution. Which will make you feel better about that high price.
