LG is confirmed to debut its first ever 4K projector at the Consumers Electronics Show (CES) 2018.

While other 4K projectors are short and squat, the HU80KA is a much taller tower that appears to be created to sit directly on the floor rather than on a table or stand.

The South Korean consumer electronics tech giant said the 4K UHD projector, called HU80KA, will project images that are 25 percent brighter than previous products, with the diagonal screen size reaching 150 inches.

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. This is actually LG's brightest projector to date.

Up LG's sleeve is what also appears to be a 4K HDR projector.

On top of the 4K resolution, you also get support for HDR video with HDR10.

LG has designed the HU80KA to be a portable, upright projector, which is actually unique and it was made possible by its mirrorless I-shaped engine. The right way to go about it is to add it to a sound bar or as most people do, you can always experience the best surround by using an amplifier combined with 5.1 or 7.1 speaker setup to enjoy true theater like experience at home. Fear not as the HU80KA has a plethora of connectivity options ranging from optical, HDMI, and Bluetooth.

Aside from the above-mentioned features, the HU80KA also sports an Auto Cord, which allows the cable to rapidly wind up.

In case you were wondering, the HU80KA runs webOS similar to the current lineup of LG's TVs. Nevertheless, all the information about this awesome projector is anticipated to be revealed during its announcement at CES 2018.
