Anker’s sub-brand Nebula just announced its first portable 4K laser projector packed full of features. The new Nebula Cosmos Laser 4k brings laser technology and much higher light output to your living room, backyard, or anywhere else you want to have a movie night.
While Anker makes some of our favorite portable projectors, like the soda-can-sized Nebula Capsule a few years back, this latest model kicks things up a notch in every aspect. From the light output, specs, features, and a high price tag to boot.
The Nebula Cosmos 4K Laser runs Android TV 10, comes with a built-in 30W speaker setup, and supports dozens of popular streaming services and apps for random movie nights on the go. Perhaps the most significant upgrade here is the laser projection, which can project a 4K video at 2400 ANSI lumens, which is higher than its non-portable Cosmos Max from last year. With that much light output, you can easily enjoy entertainment without being in a dark room or waiting until sundown for a backyard streaming session.
The company is calling it the “world’s most compact 4K laser theater” device. And as you can see from the image above, Anker’s latest Nebula projector packs a serious punch in a small package. It runs Android 10, supports HDR10, Dolby Audio, and seamless automatic autofocus, so you don’t have to move it forward or backward to get the picture in focus.
The Nebula Cosmos Laser 4K projector supports auto Keystone correction, making setup a breeze without putting it on a tripod or getting perfectly centered. When you combine Keystone correction, auto-focus, and the two integrated 10-watt and dual 5-watt speakers on each side for excellent sound, spontaneous movie nights should only take a few minutes to set up.
While this certainly isn’t the first 4K laser projector, or the first portable projector from Nebula, combining all of that into one device should make this a compelling option for customers.
That said, there’s no integrated battery like some of Nebula’s earlier protectors, so it’s not 100% portable as you’ll still need a power source. Additionally, while it does run Android TV 10, in order to run select apps like Netflix HD to take advantage of 4K, it requires Anker’s streaming dongle that plugs into the back.
The Nebula Cosmos Laser will be available for pre-order later this month for $2,199, with a release date sometime in Mid-March. The company will also offer a 1080p variant priced at $1,599 for those interested.
