In this event, we are going to watch some new devices from Google which have a support of Google assistant. Some new audio systems, tech gadgets and more are going to introduced by Google at CES 2018.

Other than that, they are also introducing some laptop and google pixel book upgrades and add-ons and also some new tablets which are also a nice move from Google’s side. They are also providing us some new Android Audio devices which have a JVC Kenwood audio drivers which are especially for car audio systems, making them completely wireless.

In this year’s event, LG is going to launch heir new set of TV tech which will be filled up with an introduction to new features and upgrades.
This year we saw some of the best LG smartphones like LG G6, V30, and 30+, etc. which are really awesome devices, but the main target customers of LG is in home appliances and electronics. And every year, LG tries to focus on that only in Consumer Electronics Show.
In this 2018 lineup, we are going to see a technology through which you can handle LG new screens through one hand only. A tech through which they make their TV lightweight and one-handed management features are something new which we are going to see. They are also going to add an Amazon Alexa and google assistant support through which you can tune up and handle all functions of TV through our voice control, making a smart room experience. Good going!
Sony at CES 2018
If you are a CES follower, then I think you already knew that every year, Sony tried to target Consumer Electronics show to introduce their new range of Audio and video gadgets and accessories. and this year, this same scenario will be repeated.
Bu the main twist is that:- It is said that Sony is going to launch 3 New smartphones which have a flagship range to upper mid range budget this year, according to Evan Blass [a popular leaker in mobile category]. According to some leaks, these 3 mobile phones have new design and upgrades.
Other than that, they are also going to launch some new headsets and a new 4K projector with some new features. Along with that, it is also speculated that some new Sony Bravia LED TVs are also making their debut this year. We are expecting a new OLED display panel and exclusive features in it. Let’s see what they will launch in this CES 2018.
Lenovo – Launches at CES 2018
Every year, Lenovo is climbing up in every department which is related to Mobiles, Laptops and their accessories. Specially targeting on laptops category, this year, Lenovo is trying something new. They are going to hold their show in this event on January 9 from 11 AM [timings will differ from country to country, this is pacific time].
This time, Lenovo is saying that they are going to announce their latest innovations with Google, Qualcomm, and Microsoft. Agreements had been summed up between these three.
If Lenovo partnered with these two, then I think that they are going to launch their Google Daydream VR headset here which will be powered by a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Processor, Google’s idea and software and Lenovo’s hardware. As Google broked up an agreement related to this with HTC, now, they are searching for a new manufacturer for Daydream VR headset. I think they chose Lenovo for this.
If my expectations are right, then this will be an interesting Tech to see as a comeback.
