Events like CES are always very special to the Korean tech giant. Even though the event offers a huge opportunity to Samsung yet it still comes up with the prototypes that don’t have a future when it comes to mass production and public sell out. This year 8k is again in conversations for Samsung. The new Samsung’s 8k flagship is QN50TS QLED, which doesn’t have any bezel virtually. The gadget has an excellent AI and bombastic audio boosting speakers at every side. Besides that, a rotating TV panel is also introduced by Samsung that is perfect for Generation Z who love watching videos on their phones constantly.
Samsung also showed its new MicroLED technology. The tech is almost commercially ready. The sets are available in 3 different sizes.
The highlight of the event is Ballie by Samsung, a smart home robot by the company. Who use artificial intelligence to control the daily house chores. It has an inbuilt camera and a speaker which aids Ballie in so many tasks.

An electric car is the last thing people were expecting from a tech giant like Sony. The company names its car Vision-S and it came with 33 sensors. Based on the prototype of that car, all the other electric vehicles were put to shame afterward.
The PS 5 that Sony reveal looks exactly like the PS4 but with different numbers tacked up at the end. Another great gadget by the company was 8k LED designated as 75-inch KD-75ZH8. The LED is supposed to be cheaper than the ones that were offered last year.
OnePlus came up with the concept of phones for the viewers in CES. The company had been teasing its followers for a while with this phone but it was finally demonstrated at CES. The prototype device has an invisible rare camera. The camera glass is electronically tinted electrochromic glass. This means the camera only appears when used.
This company stole the thunder of many companies by unveiling a foldable phone. The company also came up with an update RoWrite. This digital notepad is 40% lighter in weight from its predecessor.
