LAS VEGAS -- While the LE660 released late in 2014 will remain in the lineup for 2015, Sharp has introduced a new LE653 model below it with smaller screens.
The HD mainstream LE653 will come in six sizes -- 32 inches, 40 inches, 43 inches, 48 inches, 55 inches and 65 inches -- and will feature the company's SmartCentral streaming platform with a dual-core processor to speed applications like Netflix along.
The TVs will feature a "modern design," wallpaper mode, onboard Wi-Fi, a frankly measly three HDMI inputs including MHL, and built-in 20W audio.
In addition the models from 43 inches up receive AquoMotion 120 motion compensation (240 in the 65-inch model).
Availability and pricing of the LE653 series are yet to to be announced.
