LG launches tiny 4K projector

LG Electronics makes more than televisions: the South Korean manufacturer has just launched its latest projector in the lifestyle segment, called the LG CineBeam Qube.

The CineBeam Qube (HU710PB) is one of the smallest 4K projectors the world has seen to date. Nevertheless, LG claims that the new 4K projector will be able to turn almost any indoor space into a movie theatre!

Measuring no more than 80 x 135 x 135 mm and weighing just under 1.5 kg, the small video projector also has a handle that can rotate the projector lens 360 degrees once you’ve found a stable surface. (Photo: LG)

Small and portable projectors are all the rage at the moment because they allow us to create a big picture in no time: Samsung, for example, has had some success with its portable The Freestyle.

LG’s version differs in that it uses mains power and is therefore more ‘stationary’ – but should be easy to move around when needed. The LG projector features Auto Screen Adjustment, which helps to adjust the focus, size and position of the image.

The CineBeam Qube is also a “smart” projector as it runs the LG webOS (6.0) user interface with menu options and in-built streaming services such as Netflix, YouTube, Disney+ and Prime Video (requires a subscription of course). The projector also has a kind of “standby mode” where it can display atmospheric backgrounds.

The LG Cinebeam Qube uses an RGB laser light source and LG’s own video processing. The manufacturer claims it has an impressive contrast ratio of 450,000:1 and a colour space of 154% of the DCI-P3 colour space.

You’ll probably need a fairly dark room and a relatively small viewing area to get anywhere near these figures. The brightness is listed at 500 ANSI Lumens (equivalent to just under 150 nits). But we’re still looking forward to testing it in practice.

The price of the LG CineBeam Qube has not yet been announced, but it will be presented in more detail at the CES show in Las Vegas next week. Watch this space!
