All electronic products are categorised in different sections like Automotive, Product Design & Manufacturing, IOT (Internet Of Things), Entertainment & Advertising Content, Health & Wealth, Robotics, etc. One of the coolest thing about this event is that it is not dedicated or encouraging to a specific field or sector. They are giving proper attention and display to every product and technology that are been showcased.
CES main intention is to showcase and provide a global stage for innovation for everyone. It is a sort of world’s gathering place for all such people’s and companies who have a thirst to innovate and do some productive stuff for humanity.

What To Expect In CES 2020
The year 2020 is said to be the magical year because there are so many life-changing innovations and technology that are going to be displayed. CES has not started yet but certainly, rumours and leaks have started. There are many rumours around the internet but not all of them are correct. So we have filtered all the leaks and news and brought you the most authentic information about this year’s CES.
Here are some of the most expected launches of CES:
Home technology is not something that is been exposed for the first time. At present we have Google Home & mini version, Amazon Echo & Alexa smart display, JBL link view, Sonos Beam, JBL Link, etc. There are many more but the question arises, what after this? This technology is dependent on the internet, even smart speakers have limitations.
They are yet not programmed to handle or answer in a difficult or tough scenario, like what happens if there is some emergency situation. So the companies are working on this, Amazon is all set to launch a new version of their smart speaker. So let’s hope Google will also upgrade their Home Max and Mini versions with the introduction of 5G networks.
Foldable Phones with 5G
CES is all dedicated to electronics and technology but, with the mobile sector, it is doesn’t attain success. then the question may be asked, why? The reason is the MWC (Mobile World Congress) that is been held every year in Spain, Barcelona. This year it is going to start in February. It is the biggest exhibition in the mobile industry. However, Samsung and other companies will showcase their new smartphones at CES.
Now foldable phones are introduced in 2019 but it was not that successful, so now Samsung is coming with the new generation of foldable phones. Even the technology of 5G is also going to be introduced. The new 5G carriers, speed and other demonstration will also be illustrated.
Introduction to 8K Smart TV
There is always been a debate between LG & Samsung, who manufactures best-LED TV for consumers. The answer is unknown because both the companies are tech giant in this field. Both manufactures 4K TV with Ultra-HDR support but, now in 2020 they are taking a step forward and introducing 8K with Ultra-HDR support. Shocked! don’t worry 8K is now on a path to reality.
Aside from that, it packs an OLED panel, with good reliability. Both the companies are presenting their products but LG is taking a step forward and also introducing a curved screen for gamers. At CES 2020 LG is going to launch its 38-inch curved display monitor with 4K support. The display is having IPS panel including 144hz refresh rate with the compatibility of Nvidia G-Sync.
In the industry, there are many companies that provide you with fitness tracking application or with products but, none of them is too accurate or stylish. However, OURA is a Finland based company that manufactures smart rings. The concept of the smart ring is simple to track down all your activities especially sleeping time. They introduced their first ring which was loaded with numerous features.
So now in CES, they are set to launch their new OURA ring which packs even large number of features that are customised according to the users. The new ring is now powered with advance artificial intelligence it tracks your daily exercise, routines and learns all your behaviour and mood. According to the company, it automatically transfers your data and learns your pattern and act according to it.
Transportation is another department that CES holds every year. Many transport companies showcase their new model or concept car to the audience. In this new year get ready to see even more concept cars that too with the integration of artificial intelligence. Some companies have already teased their new models like Aston Martin, Fiat, Honda, Jeep, etc.
A piece of news about Honda is revealed that they are going to show a demonstration of A.I. Thus a new feature of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assitance Systems) is also developed for these cars. This sort of self-driving feature is introduced earlier but companies have reintroduced this with some new innovation.
One of the biggest chip producers in the world is Intel. Seeing this everyone is speculating that this year Intel will introduce something new and innovative. Like last year Intel introduced 10nm ice lake processor based on the sunny cove architecture.
Similarly in 2020 speculations are made that Intel is going to announce six more nine generation processor. These processors will vary from core i3 to i9. According to the news, this is the biggest launch ever that Intel is going to make. Even rumoured are made that this year Intel will also debut their much-awaited GPU.
