During a press conference in China, Sharp announced the AQUOS XLED F8. The XLED F8 is a 65-inch Mini LED TV, priced at RMB 16999 (US$2500 approximately). The F8 features a 4K 120Hz display with 2160 local dimming zones and an eye-searing 1800-nit peak brightness. Unfortunately, the XLED F8's launch appears to be limited to China at the moment.

Sharp recently announced the XLED F8, a Mini LED TV set to featured 2160 local dimming zones and a remarkable 1800-nit peak brightness. The XLED F8 is 65 inches, with a 4K 120 Hz panel. The large number of local dimming zones and very high brightness make it great for HDR content.

Sharp didn't offer details about response times or viewing angles, so it's still not clear exactly how well-suited the TV will be for gaming. The XLED F8 uses Mini LED tech, widely touted as a best-of-both-worlds compromise between the high brightness possible on IPS panels and OLED's better contrast and dimming capabilities. 

In terms of pricing, the XLED F8 will launch at RMB 16999. This is a considerable outlay, equivalent to US$ 2500. Sharp appears to be limiting availability of the TV to China - it's unclear at the moment when (or if) you'll be able to get your hands on it in other places.
