LG HU80KA 4K UHD projector to debut at CES 2018

LG has just unveiled a beast of a projector that supports 4K HDR projection and comes with half the size of competing 4K projectors which LG said are a hassle to install and setup.

As we reported earlier that the South Korean giant has prepared many devices on board for CES 2018.

While having a TV in your living room is probably one of the most ideal setups, there are also benefits for using projectors. While they are "heavy, expensive, and hard to install", according to the company, the HU80KA is the opposite of all these. Rated at 2,500 lumens, the HU80KA certainly has a bright future ahead of it, making it LG's brightest projector so far, matching it up against what's now available in the market today. The projector has a portable form factor with the mirrorless I-shaped engine that lets it do the task it is meant to even if you place it on the floor or hang it from the ceiling. On top of that 4K resolution there is also support for HDR meaning a wider range of colours and contrast can be displayed. 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). The projector will play media off a USB drive, and also lets you hook up an external keyboard and mouse.

How much will the HU80KA cost?

LG isn't yet sharing the HU80KA's pricing, but that's par for the course with home theater announcements at CES. Companies throng to show off their latest gadgets, make us drool at them, then once everything is over, they reveal the prices.

This 4K projector is a high spec model that has 2500 lumens to create a huge screen on the wall.

CES 2018 kicks off on the 7 of January 2018 and goes on till the 12 of January 2018.
