LG's compact portable 4K laser projector comes with a handle

This is actually LG's brightest projector to date.

LG has just made another announcement for a product that will be debuting at CES next week in Las Vegas. 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.

The LG HU80KA, as it's called, is portable enough to be lifted by the handle and placed anywhere. This model is actually half the size of competing 4K-capable projectors on the market, and while pricing hasn't been announced, LG does say that it'll be "affordable". "LG's 4K UHD projector promises superb cinematic experiences thanks to its excellent 4K picture quality and portability, enabling users to create a true movie environment in any room of the house". Of course what would a "cinematic experience" be without some great sound. It sits upright like a pillar, a design that comes from its "mirrorless I-shaped engine". That allows the projector to show ideal images no matter where it is placed. Also, it can be connected to external speakers or soundbars through optical output, Bluetooth or HDMI.

The trash can (sorry, projector) features the same webOS software as LG's televisions, meaning it has access to a wide range of streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video - both of which offer Ultra HD content and even some HDR shows, too.

The projector can be positioned on the floor, hung from the ceiling or can be mounted to the wall. It also allows the newest projector from LG to display ideal images no matter where it is positioned. As far as content goes, customers won't have any issues finding anything to watch. While they are "heavy, expensive, and hard to install", according to the company, the HU80KA is the opposite of all these. Which means it won't be coming out anytime soon. Considering the LG Full HD projectors top out at 2,000 lumens that's an impressive jump up for this beast of a unit.
