The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, a major event showcasing new technology, starts today. The event covers a wide range of tech developments, including health smart homes, foldable displays, computing devices, and TVs. Truly CES is a exploration into the most futuristic technology on the planet.
Here ‘s what you can expect.
- Computing – Expect to see unconventional laptops with dual-screen displays and powerful specs, including large 16-inch and 18-inch displays with high pixel counts and refresh rates, from top brands like Asus, Lenovo, and Acer.
- Processors – Intel and AMD are releasing new chips, with Intel’s 13th generation and the Core i9-13980HX, marketed as the “world’s fastest mobile processor” with 24 cores, already available. Apple’s next processors are expected to be released in a few months. AMD’s offerings, including the HX, HP, and U series, will vary depending on the type of computing device.
- Smart Phones – While CES is typically not focused on smartphones, there may be some new releases, such as the rumored ThinkPhone from Lenovo-owned Motorola. Major smartphone launches from brands like OnePlus and Samsung are expected to happen early next month, with other brands following soon after.
- Television – TV manufacturers will showcase TVs with 4K resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) at CES, as well as models with improved display panels like QLED and OLED, paired with advanced image processing algorithms. 8K TVs are not yet widespread enough to justify the cost.
- Healh Tech – Health technology continues to expand in scope and usefulness. Withing’s new U-Scan stick, which can be installed in a toilet and analyzes urine samples to provide information on a person’s metabolic and reproductive health, is one example. Samsung is also developing a telemedicine app for smart TVs, which will allow users to connect with doctors through a webcam.
- Displays – Asus and Alienware are competing to release the first 500Hz refresh rate monitor for PCs, with Asus describing its version as the first of its kind. Dell is also set to release a high-tech 32-inch Pro Display XDR with a resolution of 6144×3456 pixels. It is unclear which company will come out on top in this battle.
- Smart Work – Acre is introducing the BD3, a bike desk that allows users to work and exercise simultaneously, generating kinetic energy through pedaling that can be used to charge electronic devices. This innovative product aims to make it easier for people to fit in a workout even on busy days with calls and work.
