Toshiba to sell low-priced 4K TVs

JIJI

Toshiba Corp. will launch a new line of ultrahigh-resolution 4K liquid crystal display televisions in June that are more affordable than the existing models, the firm said Tuesday.

Toshiba will launch the Regza Z8X series in Japan in three screen sizes, with the smallest, the 58-inch model, likely to retail for around ¥500,000. With the low prices below ¥10,000 per inch in terms of screen size, Toshiba aims to boost sales of 4K TVs, which have four times more pixels than full high-definition TVs and thus can display high-resolution images even on large screens.
