Sharp is expected to turn plenty of heads at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week with the unveiling of its 85-inch, 8K, glasses-free 3D television.

While 8K television may be a little ahead of its time, according to TechRadar.com, it will not stop the curious from checking out Sharp and its technology at the show.

"Although 8K televisions are a way off from appearing in our various consumer houses, the proof of the concept has been floating round shows for a long time," said Patrick Goss of TechRadar.com. "That said, Sharp will garner plenty of attention for its 85-incher – developed in conjunction with Philips and Dolby – in Las Vegas as the Japanese giant attempts to prove that 3D is not all about the glasses."

Goss wrote that the 8K television will have 16 times the resolution of the today's HD television, which customers are just now catching up to.

"Given that the world is just beginning to embrace 4K and content for that format is thin on the ground, we won't be expecting a massive shift into 8K just yet," Goss said.

Chris Smith of the tech website BGR said the 85-inch television won't be the only thing Sharp will have in its CES play box this week.

"The company has also announced a variety of new TV models part of the Aquos Quattron+ that will be able to deliver 4K playback support and will come in three classes including 60 inches, 70 inches and 80 inches models," Smith said on his BGR site.

"The Aquos line of LED Smart TVs is also getting new 60- and 70-inch models capable to deliver 4K Ultra HD playback, just like the Aquos Quattron line, which will also receive new 60- and 70-inch models," Smith added. "Finally, the Sharp Aquos HD will get new models from 60 inches to 90 inches, with the company expected to expand the small and mid-size offering as well this year."

CNet.com reported that Sharp chief executive Toshi Osawa told the CES audience that he believes that the company's new television line will reign again as the world's largest HDTV seller.

"Sharp has put more 60-inch or larger televisions in American homes than any other manufacturer," Osawa told CES attendees.
