Hisense, which now makes and markets Sharp-brand TVs in North America, said Monday that its Sharp AQUOS N7000 series TV line, which will be the first Sharp models marketed by the new brand licensee, is shipping to retail stores now.

The AQUOS N7000 series carries models in the 43- ($499.99 suggested retail), 50- ($699.99), 55- ($799.99), 60- ($1,199.99) and 65-inch ($1,499.99) class screen sizes, all of which have a new sleek classic Sharp design, featuring a metal bezel and inverted trapezoid at the base of the TV.

All of the models are enabled to read high dynamic range (HDR) metadata via USB or HDMI 2.0 inputs and render standard dynamic range (SDR) images for a picture that can depict over 16 million colors, the company said.

Read more on the Sharp N7000 TVs after the jump:

All feature: edge-lit LED panels (except the 43-inch which is direct lit), AquoMotion, built-in apps, dbx-tv sound, dual-band Wi-Fi reception, an Octa-core processor, 4K media player, and app store/web browser.

Also included in each model is Sharp Revelation Upscaler, which delivers sharper images of SD, HD and Full HD content on the 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160p) resolution panels.

Motion is handled using AquoMotion backlight scanning technology to create the illusion of smoother motion images. All models also have AquoDimming, which automatically enhances contrasting colors to create darker blacks and whiter whites.
