Ahead of CES 2018, LG announced the HU80KA, otherwise known as the LG 150-inch 4K HDR Projector. The first of its high-end living room gadgets for 2018, the projector is said to be roughly half the size of competing 4K options on the market, many of which, they claim, are “heavy, expensive, and difficult to install.” By contrast, the HU80KA is being billed as an “affordable yet premium device” that can output a 150-inch picture.
Ideal for anywhere in the house, LG’s new projector is not only huge in size, it’s also very, very bright. LG says it tops out at 2,500 lumens, which makes it the company’s brightest projector yet by quite a distance and also puts it on level terms with pretty much anything else on the market.
As well as 4K resolution, you also get support for HDR video with HDR10 and the projector can be positioned on the floor, mounted to the wall, or hung from the ceiling. There are two built-in 7-watt speakers and audio output options include HDMI, optical, streaming apps, and, of course, Bluetooth. The projector will also play media off a USB drive.
The LG HU80KA 150-inch 4K HDR projector has got a price yet – we’d expect that over the course of next day or so – but it’s fair to assume it won’t be much less than £2,000 if at all. Keep an eye on the LG Website when it’s officially launched.
*UPDATE* The LG HU80KA projector will go on sale this week in the US for $3,000 (around £2,230). There’s still no word on a UK release date.
