Sharp outs 8K LED TV, IoT Inverter Aircon, and campaign for locally-made Sharp products

Sharp Philippines has announced their AQUOS 8K LED TV, with 16x the resolution of Full HD (or 1920×1080), the Super Premium Split Type IoT (internet of things) Inverter Airconditioner, and the start of the company’s Philippine-made products campaign. The event was held last May 17 at Shangri-la at The Fort. The launch also included the Sharp AQUOS 4K TV series and showcased other Sharp home appliances, including 2K TVs and air purifiers. 


8K resolution offers incredible, ultra-fine details the naked eye cannot capture, and hence is used in the fields on medicine, business, security, education, transportation, film-making, and by those who value intense detail and color in their videos. The Sharp AQUOS 8K LED TV was first introduced in October 2017 and is currently distributed in China, Japan, Taiwan, Europe, and soon, the Philippines.

Super Premium Split Type IoT (internet of things) Inverter Airconditioner

This IoT airconditioner features Plasmacluster Ion Technology, which keeps both the air in your room clean, and the inside of the aircon itself, clean. It can be controlled through a mobile device through an app, has an easy to follow LED indicators for different settings, and automatically cleans the inside of the unit to prevent the growth of molds.

The IoT Inverter Airconditioner also has a 14-degree Celsius temperature setting – the lowest setting in the industry – which is effective for indoor cooling in severely hot weather (like in the Philippines during the summer); and this works even when outside temperatures soar. The Super Premium Split Type IoT Inverter Airconditioner comes in 1.0 HP (AH-XP10VF) and 1.5 HP (AH-XP15VF) variants.

Locally-Made Sharp Products aimed at the Philippine Market

Sharp Philippines is also launching a campaign that highlights Philippine-made Sharp products, including LED TVs, washing machines, videoke, and electric fans.

The company believes that supporting local will improve the Philippine economy. The company aims to increase sales by 20% in 2018.
