LG Electronics announces party-sized CineBeam Qube projector

LG Electronics has made yet more announcements ahead of CES 2024, unveiling a new CineBeam Qube projector and MyView branded monitors that are expected to go on sale later in the year.


LG traditionally makes a series of AV announcements prior to CES while holding back on its flagship TV offerings and this year is no different. Prior to the latest announcement, the company revealed its 2024 soundbar lineup, a new series of high-end UltraGear OLED monitors for gamers, and its upcoming range of QNED LCD TVs (see more in the video below).

Now the company has announced its first projector for the new year in the shape of the CineBeam Qube HU710PB, which appears to be a high-end model aimed at film aficionados that want to be able to watch high-quality, big-screen movies in any location.

It’s a stylish yet compact lifestyle projector that features a relatively “minimalist aesthetic”, with a rotatable handle to enhance portability. Despite being designed as a mobile device that can be carried anywhere, the LG CineBeam Qube HU710PB boasts some impressive capabilities. LG said it can deliver brightness of up to 500 lumens while throwing up a picture of between 50 and 200 inches onto any surface. It also hits a whopping 154% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour gamut, comes with support for HDR10, and has HDMI eARC and USB Type-C inputs for connectivity. The Qube is said to run webOS 6.0, enabling video streaming on the go via apps such as Netflix.

As for PC users, they may well be interested in LG’s all-new MyView brand of smart monitors. Launching later this year, the MyView lineup consists of three 4K monitors that can stream video from Netflix and other apps without connecting a PC. LG’s smart monitors are really just PC displays with TV capabilities, and run the webOS 23 platform. The new models include the LG 32SR85U, 32SR83U and 32SR70U, and they are fitted with a 31.5-inch IPS panel, with similar specifications. The main differences between the models pertain to design elements, such as their stands and profile-bases.

LG said the MyView monitors support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as Apple AirPlay 2 and Miracast. They’re said to come pre-installed with apps such as Microsoft 365 and Google Calendar, and the 32R85U specifically can also be combined with a detachable full HD webcam for video calls. LG also listed features such as 60Hz refresh rates, HDR10 support, 5ms response times, 95% coverage of the DCI-P4 colour gamut, and built-in 5-watt speakers.

In its latest announcements, LG made no mention of pricing or launch windows, so we’ll have to wait and see if the company announces more details at CES 2024, which kicks off on January 9 in Las Vegas. However, it’s likely that LG’s new OLED TVs will dominate the headlines at next week’s event.
