The Korean giant, LG has revealed one of its high-end living room gadgets ahead of the CES 2018: a 4K HDR projector. The company claims its high-end living-room gadget, new UHD projector, roughly half the size of its competitors’ on the market, many of which are costly and difficult to set up, according to the company.

In contrast, the HU80KA is claimed to be an “affordable yet premium device” that is able to display a 150-inch picture in any room of your house. That can picture can be extremely vivid, too; the giant says it tops out at 2,500 lumens, which makes it the company’s brightest projector yet and it stands out among what’s on the market today.

Apart from the 4K resolution, you also get support for HDR video with HDR10. The projector can be placed on the floor, mounted to the wall, or hung from the ceiling, and LG says it’ll work great in any of those setups.

The projector comes with built-in 7-watt speakers, but you might want a pair of a soundbar with this thing. Audio output options include optical, HDMI, and Bluetooth. The projector will play media off a USB drive, and also lets you attach an external keyboard and mouse.

And yes, it runs webOS just like LG’s TV lineup so it’s got most of the big streaming apps integrated out of the box.

LG hasn’t revealed its pricing details, but it’s clear that would be revealed at the CES. We’ll have to wait a few more days for the preview as well other related specifics.
