LG claims that the new projector is almost half the size of its 4K rivals and crowned its 4K UHD model as "affordable yet premium device."
LG has unveiled a new projector — the HU80KA ahead of CES 2018. The new 4K UHD model is the first such projector which is said to deliver ultra-sharp video.
The company claims that the device is almost half the size of its 4K rivals in the market. While most 4K projectors currently in the market are heavy and expensive, the company crowned its 4K UHD projector as an "affordable yet premium device."
With the new 4K UHD projector, the company claims that it can create a 150-inch screen at 2,500 lumens that make it the brightest projector from the company until yet. The model also supports HDR content for a cinematic experience in the home.
Apart from the 4K resolution, the company also offers HDR video support with HDR10. LG says projector's portability and upright design have been credited to the mirrorless L-shaped engine which allows the projector to be placed on the floor, mounted on the wall.
The LG HU80KA model comes equipped with standard connectivity options such as USB, Ethernet and HDMI ports, as well as wireless support for external devices such as a keyboard and mouse. The model comes packed with two 7-watt speakers in the projector and can be connected to external speakers or soundbars.
The South Korean giant has not yet revealed the price and other details regarding the HU80KA projector. LG will put the whole 2018 projector on display at the LG Booth in the Las Vegas.
Besides, the company latest version of MiniBeam Projector — PF50K will also be showcased at CES 2018.
Tom's Guide performed charging tests on the top 10 flagships. This bargain model came out on top.
You just realized that your phone is low on juice, and panic sets in. How much charge can you get in a limited amount of time? We tested 10 of the top flagship phones and found that the OnePlus 5T is the fastest in the land.
The good news is that most of the premium Android phones these days offer some form of quick charging via their USB-C adapters. In the case of the latest iPhones, you can get fast charging, but only if you pay extra for both a 29-watt power adapter and a USB-C-to-Lightning cable (about $68 total).
For our first round of testing, we wanted to find what battery percentage these phones could reach in 30 minutes of charging with their included adapters. The phones were on, but the screens were turned off. With the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, we used both the standard AC plug and the fast-charging gear to bring you both sets of results.
The OnePlus 5T led the pack, reaching an impressive 59 percent in 30 minutes. The advantage for the OnePlus? Unlike most other Android phones, it doesn't use Qualcomm's QuickCharge technology. Instead, it employs the proprietary Dash Charge, which delivers higher amperage than QuickCharge and uses dedicated circuitry in the charger itself for heat management. (Android Central has a great explainer on how Dash Charge works.)
However, it's important to note that these iPhones charge slower than the rest of the field even with their included adapters. For instance, the iPhone X hit only 17 percent after 30 minutes.
Among other phones, the Galaxy Note 8, S8 and S8+ were all in the same ballpark, at 35 to 38 percent, and the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL had comparable results.
So how about after an hour? The OnePlus 5T once again took the prize, reaching 93 percent in 60 minutes. The LG V30 snagged second place, at 86 percent, and the latest iPhones all vied for third place, though the iPhone X had the most capacity, at 81 percent. And, yes, you could argue that you need to cheat to hit these numbers with the iPhone, because you have to buy extra gear.
Overall, if filling up your phone fast is a top priority, the OnePlus 5T is the champ. And at $499, it's also the most affordable phone you can get that comes with flagship-level specs and performance.
