No news on availability or pricing yet for the projector, but we hope to see it in Malaysia soon. Aside from being 4K-capable projector, the device also has support for HDR 10, making it capable of giving the users incredible viewing experiences. "LG's 4K UHD projector promises great cinematic experience thanks to its excellent 4K picture quality and portable size, meaning that the movie environment can be created in any room of the house at any time." company said. It sits upright like a pillar, a design that comes from its "mirrorless I-shaped engine". Also, it can be connected to external speakers or soundbars through optical output, Bluetooth or HDMI.
LG hasn't mentioned a price or release date at this stage but judging from Sony's 4K short-throw USTP projector bar, which took a while to be released and cost around £32,000, we're not expecting this LG version to be one for everybody. The maximum capacity is pegged at 2,500 lumens which according to the company is the brightest projector they have ever created. In terms of audio performance, the LG HU80KA projector features two 7W speakers. That allows the projector to show flawless images no matter where it is placed. The users can place it on the floor or mount it on the ceiling. This feature makes moving the projector even easier. As far as content goes, customers won't have any issues finding anything to watch. LG HU80KA is roughly half the size of competing 4K projectors. The connectivity options include the standard ports for USB, Ethernet and HDMI and also offer wireless support for external devices like a keyboard and mouse.
Oh, and it runs webOS just like LG's TV lineup so it's got most of the big streaming apps integrated out of the box. Which means it won't be coming out anytime soon.
LG is one of the companies that seem to be lining up a lot of products to be unveiled at the CES 2018.
