It is quite obvious that we may not see the unveiling of many smartphones at the event, as compared to MWC and IFA, however, rumors suggest that some smartphones brands will still be there to unveil their latest inventions.

Samsung, Huawei, LG, Lenovo, Dell, Sony, and such others tech giants are expected to attend the event, however, we still don’t know which products they are planning to reveal on the tradeshow. By gathering rumors and leaks we have compiled a report for few brands which are most like to take their cut in CES 2018.

Samsung at CES 2018

Samsung is expected to launch several gadgets for CES 2018. There have been a couple of rumors to suggest the Galaxy S9 flagship smartphone will appear at the Vegas show but we’re doubtful. It is likely that the South Korean giant might reveal a video teaser about the phone. It is also likely that Samsung might launch its new smartphone from the Galaxy A series of 2018, which might be having S8 like infinity display. Rumors also suggest that Samsung Galaxy X, which will be the first foldable smartphone by the company is also expected to be launched at the tradeshow. Samsung has earlier filed a patent for its foldable Galaxy X phone.

Galaxy S9, Samsung's upcoming flagship is right around the corner. It is expected to be announced with a glimpse at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to be held in January 2018. Android users are anxiously waiting for this smartphone release as it is expected to have an array of new features including an improved facial recognition feature. The phones will sport 4GB RAM ( we might be able to see three variants of the flagship device. Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S9 mini. The internet is overflowing with the concept pictures of S9 from different designers. The concept artists are visualizing upcoming flagship according to their thought process. One common theme in all the concept pictures is a full bezel-less screen. If that becomes a reality in the S9 series, it is going to be a great treat for Samsung buyers.
