LG to showcase its first ever 4K projector at CES 2018

Besides being LG's first UHD projector, the LG HU80KA is also the brightness one with 2500 lumens of brightness.

The CES 2018 tech show is all set to debut on January 9 at Las Vegas and go on till January 12.

After announcing that it will launch world's first 88-inch OLED display at CES 2018, LG has made another big announcement for CES. With the global 4K projector market expected to grow rapidly, LG is confident that its leadership in the LED projector segment can be repeated in the 4K projector segment as well.

Carrying the model name HU80KA, the projector, according to LG, is created to provide users with a superior cinematic experience without having to compromise on the display quality. LG's new UHD projector seems to have achieved all the essential features and claims that the size of their product is half the size of what others offer in their own market. It is a compact and upright device that can create a huge 150-inch screen on your wall.

Apart from providing the highest resolution that you could expect in any product these days, the device also supports HDR video with HDR10 technology. Audio output options include optical, HDMI, and Bluetooth.

The projector's portable size and unique upright design is only made possible by the mirrorless I-shaped engine which allows the projector to show flawless images whether it's placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling. That allows the projector to show ideal images no matter where it is placed.

The LG HU80KA, as it's called, is portable enough to be lifted by the handle and placed anywhere. There's no mention about ThinQ AI or Google Assistant, but you do get a bunch of streaming apps built roght into the projector.

As yet there are no details on how much this new LG 4K UHD Projector will retail for, we will have more details at CES 2018 next week.
