The highest resolution TV, the Beyond 4K Ultra HD, has 42 million more subpixels than standard 4K Ultra HD, Sharp said in a press release.

"With more subpixels, this TV delivers 167 percent greater resolution than traditional 4K UHD and begins to approach 8K," the release said.

The TV is one of the company's Quattron models, which features Sharp's proprietary pixel-splitting technology. The TV also includes Sharp's Android-based smart-TV platform, which gives users access to games and apps on Google Play.
