LG PF50KA - potentially the best mobile projector for MACs coming

LG announced at CES2018 last week the HU80K UHD projector - as a side remark (last sentence) they also indicated the PF50KA:

Also on display will be LG’s latest version of its portable and convenient MiniBeam Projector (model PF50K), featuring webOS 3.5 and Full HD resolution

After a lengthy research I found following information:

  • 600 ANSI Lumen
  • Full HD 1080P
  • USB-Type C for charging and images
  • 4 h battery life
  • compact design - should be 150 x 150 x 45 mm
  • weight probably around 1 kg
  • price potentially around 700-800 EUR

here's a snapshot of the new projector:

The interesting stuff is 4h battery life plus USB-C plus 1920x1080 pixel.

600 ANSI lumen should be plenty of light for a 40-60" 'portable display'

I will definitely give this device a try as an ultra mobile display - very tempting due to size, weight and capabilities and with USB-C only one type of cables are neccessary.

I'd love to have a 2nd screen to my 13" laptop always with me and of course also for films and business presentations in smaller groups.

With webOS 3.5 the projector can be used as TV replacement when traveling and as a very capable Netflix and Amazon Prime Hub.

Last but not least one or two loudspeakers are built in.

Very very very tempting for me and probably exactly what I was looking for the pst years.

Will keep you updated once I get further information.
