Consumer Electronic Show ecognized as the flagship development of digital technologies for the consumer sector was held in Las Vegas, from 5 to 8 January. Let us see what new items were presented by well-known manufacturers.
New era TVs
LG has launched a new flagship-class 4K TV series at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dubbed Signature TV OLED W, the new 65-inch TV is incredibly thin at just 2.57mm. There's also a 77-inch variant that has been launched alongside it.
Xiaomi has introduced the Mi 4 TV in three screen sizes of 49-inches, 55-inches, and finally the largest at 65-inches.
Xiaomi’s Mi Tv 4 with 65-inch display has been designed with a modular approach, and has a separate Mi TV Bar consisting of the mainboard and a sound system, which supports Dolby Atmos for better sound technology.
Faraday Future — an electric vehicle company that pitches itself as a threat to Tesla — attempted to show off its self-parking feature in front of an auditorium full of journalists, employees and perhaps a few “skeptics and naysayers,” according to Executive VP Nick Sampson.
As instructed, YT Jia, the founder and CEO of LeEco — which the company contends is merely a “strategic partner” but offers few details on the nature of the connection beyond that — pressed the button on the driver-side door that should have sent the car to the middle of the stage.
The CES show floor has always had its share of robots, but most of them were gimmicks. But no more: Robots at CES 2017 were transitioning to real consumer products. Pepper, Kuri and LG's Hub Robot are designed for consumers or businesses in the real world, and -- if all goes as planned -- you'll be able to buy them soon, in some cases for less than $1,000. Just manage your expectations: Don't expect C-3PO -- and don't expect them to climb stairs, let alone traverse shag carpets.
Razer showed off Project Valerie, the world’s first triple display laptops. Instead of a single screen, you can feast your eyes on three separate 17.3-inch 4K screens arranged panorama-style.
“Project Valerie provides the most expansive viewing experience in a notebook,” Razer says. Powered by a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, the laptop features a Surround View with a resolution of 11520×2160.
Huawei's Mate 9 is big, powerful and, at $599, incredible value. While it may be too big for some, its entry into the U.S. market heralds a turning point for the Chinese company, which is competing extremely well with Samsung and Apple for global smartphone market share.
Unfortunately, Huawei still has roadblocks to overcome before it can sell its phones at U.S. carriers, but in the meantime it has launched the Mate 9 at several well-known and accessible online retailers.
LeEco has launched two smart bicycles, the Smart Road Bike and Smart Mountain Bike, ahead of CES 2017 on Tuesday. The bicycles run LeEco's own Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based 'BikeOS' and come with a touchscreen display that provides users with turn-by-turn navigation with the help of integration with Here maps.
