LG Announces the HU80KA 4K UHD Projector - CES 2018

  • LG's tiny 4K projector puts a 150-inch screen in any room

It's a 4K UHD projector with the name HU80KA. Whereas, the specs and price will certainly be disclosed on the CES 2018 in Vegas.

After announcing that it will launch world's first 88-inch OLED display at CES 2018, LG has made another big announcement for CES.

LG engineers and designers downsized the 4K UHD projector without sacrificing image quality. LG says that it designed the 4K UHD projector specifically to get around the common heavy, expensive and hard to install projectors we are all familiar with.

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. The maximum capacity is pegged at 2,500 lumens which according to the company is the brightest projector they have ever created.

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 ideal images whether it's placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling.




The 4K UHD projector comes with two powerful 7W speakers that deliver some good sound output. But for a real cinema experience connecting a soundbar or speakers is probably best and can be done easily via optical, HDMI or even Bluetooth.

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. What's more, the Mirror Reflector can be used as a lens cover to protect the projector from dust when stored away.

LG 4K UHD projector owners will have no shortage of content to watch, as the projector's webOS 3.5 smart TV interface can access the most popular online streaming services offering 4K content.

With the announcement of the LG HU80KA, LG did not mention any pricing or availability for this projector.
