Sharp, the renowned Japanese electronics company, appears to be on the verge of a significant product launch. An online listing on a Chinese e-commerce platform has given us a glimpse into what could be a groundbreaking 100-inch TV, set to debut in China. Although Sharp has not made an official announcement yet, the listing provides an exciting preview of the product's capabilities.
This TV stands out with its extraordinary 288Hz refresh rate, promising ultra-smooth visuals.
