Foxconn Readies 70-Inch LCD TV for April 2013 Release

It will use a Sharp-made screen but won't support 4K resolutions

Foxconn wasn't very interested in large-size LCD TVs until not long ago, but the company tested the waters with a 60-inch LCD based on Sharp-manufactured panels.

And since the testing of the waters returned favorable results, the corporation has decided to make more displays.

The first one will be a 70-inch LCD TV. It will debut in April and won't have UHD support, meaning that Full HD will probably be its resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels).

There will be a 4K TV later though, or more. Digitimes reports that while the April-bound TV will not be an UHD model, one such display will probably be released in the second half of 2013 (3840 x 2160 pixels).

Foxconn may even build up to ten extra TV production lines in order to take advantage of growing demand in China.
