LG's compact 4K UHD projector to debut at CES 2018

LG's compact 4K UHD projector to debut at CES 2018 LG's compact 4K UHD projector to debut at CES 2018

LG 4K projector creates a 150-inch screen on the wall.

After having revealed a monolithic 88-inch 8K TV and a trio of 4K PC monitors, this time it is a 4K capable projector that the company is showing off before its debut at the CES event.

Apart from providing the highest resolution that you could expect in any product these days, the device also supports HDR video with HDR10 technology.

LG seems to be going all out for CES 2018. LG claims the new UHD projector is roughly half the size of competing 4K options on the market, many of which are "heavy, expensive, and hard to install" according to the company.


Unfortunately, the same can't be said of the sound quality given the two puny 7W speakers that the setup accommodates. LG engineers and designers took on the challenge of downsizing the 4K UHD projector without sacrificing image quality and came up with a premium device that is half the size of competing 4K projectors while still being easier on the wallet.

LG has designed the HU80KA to be a portable, upright projector, which is actually unique and it was made possible by its mirrorless I-shaped engine. Fear not as the HU80KA has a plethora of connectivity options ranging from optical, HDMI, and Bluetooth. That allows the projector to show ideal images no matter where it is placed.

LG is also claiming that the projector can be ceiling mounted, though we're struggling to work out exactly how you could do so while accommodating its height.

The projector also comes with carrying handle and Auto Cord feature and there is a Mirror Reflector that acts as lens cover to protect the device from dust. We are pretty excited to see this portable 4K projector in action at the CES 2018. Dolby vision is not mentioned in the product description but it could be added at a later date but if they don't provide the improved visuals, it might be a small dent in this amazingly well-done projector.
