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. The company has just revealed its new HU80KA projector capable of producing a 150-inch display.

With the LG HU80KA, you will get a cinematic experience, from the 4K picture quality, and the projector still being portable. It would work well on any of these mentioned positions. Also, it can be connected to external speakers or soundbars through optical output, Bluetooth or HDMI.

Justin Timberlake says new album will be his most 'personal' yet
After seeing the visuals in the video teaser, though, we're hoping this isn't the last we see of Timberlake being one with nature. Timberlake's 2-year-old son Silas , and wife Jessica Biel , whom he pulls in for a kiss, make cameos in the video.

"At this year's CES event, we are excited to bring value to consumers with our first 4K UHD projector, which delivers the highest resolution we've ever offered in a compact size", said Chang Ik-hwan, head of LG's IT business division. For audio, there is a pack of two 7W speakers that can give a user loud and clear sounds. Whether that be on the floor or mounted from the ceiling. Also there is the Auto Cord feature, allowing the cable to quickly wind up so that it makes moving the projector even easier. This is because projects take up less space than a TV would, and it can also generally project images and videos larger than a TV, although there will be certain aspects you'll have to sacrifice in the process. When it comes to the content, customers won't have any problems in finding anything to watch. 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. Plus it has USB, Ethernet and HDMI support for connectivity as well as wireless support for external devices like keyboard and mouse. Of course we can't speak to its quality based on the renders we're seeing, but LG is expected to demo it at CES 2018 next week, so we'll probably find out more then.

Thus far there's no pricing for LG's HU80KA.
