The CES (Consumer Electronics Show) which happens every year, as it’s an annual trade show to showcase products and in this trade show, big and small companies can showcase their products. This year’s CES event is scheduled for January 9 and it will be continued until January 12 and the event will be held in Las Vegas (like every year). As we are a week shorter to witness for the CES 2018 event, in this article I’m going to preview the event.
What should we expect from the event?
Last year company’s set trend for the Artificial Intelligence and Augmented reality, and it also pointed out that these two are going to rule in upcoming days. So, I think that CES event will have lots of products which is powered by both the AI and AR. At the CES event companies unveil products from almost every category such as vehicles, home appliances, drones, and much more. However, we should not expect many smartphones. As smartphone manufacturer unveils more devices at the MWC and IFA event.
In this article, I will note down products from some big guns whom I believe to unveil their products during the event. So, without wasting any single second let’s get into the article.
It seems the Mountain View company is keeping something big for us, as the tech giant Google is all set to attend the trade show. And I’m sure that the company will create a huge impact of its first presence at the CES, there is no information about the kinds of stuff which Google will unveil. So, let’s wait and see what Google will bring out.
The South Korean electronics giant LG has a press conference on January 8, which is a day before CES event. And there is a report with says, that the company will unveil a new smartphone called LG G7 along with new devices into its K Series portfolio. Moreover, it is also expected that the company will unveil smart products under its new brand called ThinkQ.
They are not going to launch any new device at the event, but there is a rumors which says that the company will make way for Huawei Mate 10 Pro in the United States of America. At the event, the company may reveal more details about the carriers. There is a rumor which says, the device will be exclusively available via AT&T.
The company may and unveil the Nokia 6 (2018) at the event, as recently the device has gone through the Chinese regulatory website TENAA. If we track down the history then, the first Nokia 6 was also unveiled at the CES event in 2017. Right now, there is no confirmation about this but I hope the device will be unveiled at the event.
The Japanese electronics giant Sony hasn’t revealed its plan for the CES event, but I guess that the company is all set to unveil a new smartphone called Sony Xperia L2. As the device leaked yesterday in a 3D render video, which gives lots of information about the device. It is expected that the device sport a 5.5-inch display and it will be powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor along with 4 GB of RAM, and the device will run on Android Nougat.
The company will launch their new mid-range devices called Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) at the event. And there is a report which says that the flagship device of Samsung called Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are going to make their first public appearance at this event, but the company will officially launch the device in February at the MWC event. Moreover, the company will also unveil three innovative tech products such as Relumino Smart Glasses, S-Ray Speakers, and GoBreath App during the event.
New innovations which can expect
In-display fingerprint sensor
This year’s CES 2018 may witness for the first device which powered with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Last year, at MWC event we got the first look at this technology. But after that, there was no information about it. However, I feel that in this year we will see the device in reality.
As I mentioned above that in last year, the Augmented Reality has received an important focus by some well-known companies. Now in this year, I am sure that the AR technology is going to get a big attention and it will go on a different stage. We know Google has come up with is Google ARCore, Apple is also there with its ARKit. And even the social networking app like Snapchat has also started to use the technology of Augmented Reality into its face filters. So, all this suggest that in this year’s CES 2018 event will deliver something big in the field of AR.
It is expected that in this year, the trade show will witness for the new and innovative electric cars. The JVCKENWOOD has announced to unveil two new wireless Android Auto head units at the event. In addition, The Verge reports, company’s like Ford, Byton, Uber, and Lyft may showcase their innovative products.
