The Hisense 120LX is the next addition to its Laser TV lineup and is the world’s first 8K offering in the ultra-short throw arena. Hisense debuted the 120LX at CES 2023. While 8K is more or less an unfathomable direction for current gaming hardware (despite some manufacturer’s claims), it can still have appeal for watching 4K content (since 8K content is also near non-existent presently) via upscaling that might provide a better viewing experience than a native 4K projector. As Hisense has yet to officially launch the 120LX it has not posted images of the new projector but we have reached out to them regarding promo materials for it and will update this article if materials are provided. Meanwhile, Projectorscreen has obtained a couple of images.
