It's a 4K UHD projector with the name HU80KA.

LG seems to be going all out for CES 2018. LG says that it designed the 4K UHD projector specifically to get around the common heavy, expensive and hard to install projectors we are all familiar with. Apparently LG's engineers have been able to downsize the HU80KA without sacrificing image quality.

With a maximum screen size of 150-inches, you're going to be thankful for every single one of 4K's 8 million plus pixels.

Apart from the 4K resolution, the HU80KA also supports HDR video with HDR10, which is a new high dynamic range format. There are two 7-watt speakers built into the projector which would be fine for casual watching but if you want the immersion, it is recommended that you hook the projector up to an external speaker system via optical, HDMI or Bluetooth.

LG says that its the design and build "gives the projector the capability to show ideal images whether it is placed on the ground, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling".

So far, LG hasn't revealed further specifications and price of the projector. That allows the projector to show flawless images no matter where it is placed.

The projector also comes with carrying handle and Auto Cord feature and there is a Mirror Reflector that acts as lens cover to protect the device from dust. 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. Dolby vision is not mentioned in the product description but it could be added at a later date but if they don't provide the improved visuals, it might be a small dent in this amazingly well-done projector.
