The projector can be positioned on the floor, hung from the ceiling or can be mounted to the wall.

LG isn't revealing pricing just yet, but likely will during CES next week where the projector has already won the CES 2018 Best of Innovation award.

While we don't have specific dimensions, the HU80KA is roughly half the size of other 4K projectors - LG says it wanted to avoid how "heavy, expensive and difficult-to-install within the home" other products are. On top of that 4K resolution there is also support for HDR meaning a wider range of colours and contrast can be displayed. The company has just revealed its new HU80KA projector capable of producing a 150-inch display.

The CES 2018 tech show is all set to debut on January 9 at Las Vegas and go on till January 12.




While having a TV in your living room is probably one of the most ideal setups, there are also benefits for using projectors. It can be easily connected to an external speaker via Bluetooth, HDMI or optical output. Giving you an incredible viewing experience. Well LG has two 7W speakers available for this projector, which will provide some incredible sound. That allows the projector to show ideal images no matter where it is placed. This feature makes moving the projector even easier.

LG touts that the company's engineers have challenged themselves to come up with the 4K projector that is smaller than the others on the market without letting down on the performance.

Aside from the above-mentioned features, the HU80KA also sports an Auto Cord, which allows the cable to rapidly wind up. In fact, LG claims the ease with which the HU80KA projector can be used and installed happens to be the biggest USP of the device. LG did mention that it will be on display at its booth during CES next week, so expect more details on this projector in the next few days. Plus it has USB, Ethernet and HDMI support for connectivity as well as wireless support for external devices like keyboard and mouse.
