New LG 4K UHD Projector Launching At CES

According to LG, the new UHD projector, called the HU80KA is approximately half the size of a now available 4K projector. The company confirmed that it has the capability to make it extremely bright so as to watch the content on a well-litroom, if required. The LG 4K projector supports HDR content so that the images appear life-like and realistic.

Regarding the company's much-anticipated presence at the CES 2018, LG's head of IT business division, Chang Ik-hwan said, "At this year's CES event, we are excited to bring value to consumers with our first 4K UHD projector, which delivers the highest resolution we've ever offered in a compact size". The projector can be kept on the floor, mounted to a wall, or simply hung from the ceiling, and perform equally well, regardless of the position. If that's not enough, you can also connect your own speakers or a soundbar via the optical output, HDMI or via Bluetooth (though a wired connection would provide a better experience). This model is actually half the size of competing 4K-capable projectors on the market, and while pricing hasn't been announced, LG does say that it'll be "affordable". With a convenient carrying handle and Auto Cord feature, users have a flexibility of installation that ensures the LG 4K UHD projector will look great in any room for any occasion. Giving you an incredible viewing experience. This is because projects take up less space than a TV would, and it can also generally project images and videos larger than a TV, although there will be certain aspects you'll have to sacrifice in the process.

The projector will run on webOS 3.5 and have a smart TV interface. Which means it won't be coming out anytime soon. Of course we can't speak to its quality based on the renders we're seeing, but LG is expected to demo it at CES 2018 next week, so we'll probably find out more then.
