LG’s 4K projector, the CineBeam Qube, might just be the classiest home device we have seen in a while, with its boxy but sleek design artistically modeled to fit into any home. Owning a nice TV is no longer the flex it used to be considering that most of us have adapted to a life of using our phones, iPads, and laptops for all of our streaming services and viewing needs. Now when a device like the LG CineBeam projector makes an appearance, we find ourselves tempted to consider the investment in a device that can enhance our streaming experience. The 4K laser project has not fully revealed any actual evidence of how well it actually projects images, but here are some of the things we do know about the LG CineBeam specs.
“LG’s upgraded projector lineup offers a range of lifestyle-enriching devices that present outstanding spatial integration and versatility as well as immersive, cinematic viewing experiences.”

LG’s 4K Projector—The Cinebeam Qube Is Designed To Fit Right Into Your Home
LG is known as a reliable source for home technology but its product designs are not something that often give us pause. From their fridges to washing machines, the company usually makes sturdy devices that are meant to blend into the background. The LG CineBeam projector (model HU710PB), however, looks set to be a statement piece despite being quite simplistic in its design. The 3.28lbs device has a 360-degree rotatable handle that really cinches in the look, taking it from looking a little like a CPU to resembling the hand-cranked projectors of the past. The retro aesthetic of the device paired with its compact size makes it perfect to use as an addition to your decor until you need to pull it out to screen a match for your friends or watch a movie with your family. This is where the LG CineBeam specs come into play.
According to the LG CineBeam specs that were released, the device can project a screen size of 50–120 inches with a 1.2 throw ratio, which should provide a decent viewing experience once set up. The laser projector offers 4K UHD resolution at 3,840 x 2,160 and a 450,000:1 contrast ratio. The 500 ANSI Lumens brightness score is not as impressive as other projectors on the market, which might be a letdown for those expecting the full force of the HDR 10 support to shine with this device. The RGB laser light source on the LG 4K projector, is touted to be highly color-accurate as per the company which should mean “movies and other content are displayed just as their creators intended, with rich colors and deep blacks that add depth and vibrancy to every scene.”
The LG CineBeam specs are supported by the company’s internal operating system, which means the device will run on the LG webOS 6.0. It might not be as convenient as running more familiar Android or iOS software on the device, but it does ensure you have easy access to the streaming services of your choice and HDMI eARC and USB-C ports, which is all you really need your projector to be able to support. The reported 3W Mono speaker is also a useful addition to the device and overall, it seems well-suited to a mid-sized home, taking up limited space and projecting to a size that should still provide a good viewing experience without compromising on quality.
Overall, LG’s 4K projector, the compact CineBeam Qube, can be a great addition to any home, designed to be a portable traveling companion if necessary, but also well equipped to sit on your shelf without being intrusive. The LG CineBeam specs should hold up well in comparison to other similar devices on the market, its brightness being the only potential drawback of the device. There is no information available on the price of the LG CineBeam projector or when it will be available in the US, but those who want to see the device in action will get a glimpse of it at the CES booth (#16008) at the Las Vegas center, the event set for 9-12 January.
We hope this isn’t the last we see of the 4K laser projector and more similarly designed devices from LG.
