Here ‘s Everything You Should Expect From CES 2018
CES an annual trade show put on by the Consumer Technology Association. It’s one of the biggest tech trade shows in the world with over 170,000 people in attendance. Companies big and small attend the trade show every year, showing off the latest and greatest products they have to offer.
CES will take place between Tuesday, January 9 and Friday, January 12, 2018.
Like every year, CES 2018 will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
So, which products are expected to make their debut at the trade show? Let’s take a look.
According to a recent report from VentureBeat, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are “scheduled to make their first public appearance” at CES.
This doesn’t necessarily mean the handsets will be announced at the show— Samsung might just show them off in a teaser video. The official unveiling isn’t slated until March 2018. Though, it wouldn’t surprise us if Samsung used CES to announce an official reveal date for the devices. What we’re saying is, don’t expect to learn a lot about the S9 at CES this year.
Samsung could also announce an upgraded version of the Chromebook Pro, which launched at CES 2017.
LG’s press conference will take place on January 8, a day before CES kicks off. According to a report from BusinessKorea, LG will reveal the G7 at the trade show — but we don’t agree. The flagship will likely make its debut at MWC in Barcelona, same as its predecessor.
LG could opt for the same strategy for CES 2018. This means it might reveal their successors sometime this month or in January and then display them in Las Vegas.
Huawei isn’t expected to launch new smartphones in Las Vegas. But it is possible the company will use the event to announce the launch of the Mate 10 Pro in the US. After all, it did the same thing with the Mate 9 at CES 2017.
As spotted by Chrome Unboxed, CES 2018 will be the first time Google will be present at the show with a big, standalone booth. Not only that, the company has also reserved eight hospitality suites.
Rumors suggest it could reveal a few new Chromebooks that will join the Pixelbook, which made its debut in October.
Additionally, Google might use the event to offer consumers a close-up look at its lineup of products. These include the Pixel 2 smartphones, Daydream View VR headset, and smart speakers like the Home Mini, among others.
Rumors suggest that ASUS is working on an upgraded version of its C302CA Chromebook that will go head to head with Google’s Pixelbook. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but there’s a chance we’ll see it at CES.
Many other companies including HTC, Sony, ZTE, and Lenovo will be present at CES 2018; though there are no specific details on which products they might show off. We’ll likely hear more rumors about the products that could make their debut at the show over the next month. When that happens, we’ll update this post to keep you up-to-dated.
