LG announced its first-generation CineBeam 4K laser projector at last year's CES, and ahead of the upcoming 2019 conference, the company is launching the second-generation HU85L model from the HU80K's tall, black tower shape, instead for one traditional rectangular gray box that fits seamlessly into your living room. According to LG, the new HU85L is Ultra Short Throw (UST) technology, which allows a 90-inch screen to be projected just two inches off the wall. Alternatively, users can shift it slightly further to seven inches for a larger 120-inch image.
LG has not yet announced the full specifications, but it is promising that the HU85L offers up to 2,500 ANSI lumens of brightness and 4K UHD resolution as well as USB, Ethernet and HDMI connectivity ports. Like the other LG Smart TVs, the HU85L will also support the company's ThinQ AI with voice commands and smart suggestions for what to see next, as well as a range of integrated streaming apps.
There is not a word yet about the price or release date of the HU85L, but LG is likely to provide more information when the CES is released in a few weeks.
