Samsung has a lot of things in a similar range, starting from smartphones to TVs to appliances at CES 2022. It’s expected from Samsung to offer several new 4K and 8K Neo QLED TVs similar to the last year’s excellent models like Samsung QN90A and QN900A. Also, we are waiting to see some of its mid-range phones, including the long-delayed Samsung Galaxy S21 FE and upcoming flagship phone Samsung Galaxy S22.
Sony at CES 2022 Convocation
It’s always tough to nail down the devices of Sony on CES convocation. Previously, they had represented a concept car, an animatronic dog, and so on. That’s why you never know what Sony will have this year.
From the audio department of Sony, it’s going to bring a new lineup of digital media players, i.e., Walkmans, One or two pairs of premium headphones, and some wireless speakers. It is expected to see at least three to four new 4K and 8K Sony TVs. However, Sony doesn’t show off much about its camera. Will we see the PlayStation VR 2 at CES 2022? Maybe not, but keep your eyes peeled to get surprised by Sony.
INTEL at CES 2022 Convocation
Intel’s biggest expectation is to reveal its new Alder Lake CPUs at CES 2022. We expect the launch of some of the flagship enthusiasts’ silicon in November. But, those might be a high-end desktop chips. In CES 2022 convocation, the audience might see Alder Lake chips making as the mobile computing segment. The big.LITTLE architecture would significantly boost the energy efficiency in Laptops. The new Alder Lake chips might leave the Apple M1X and M1 processors behind, along with AMD’s Zen 3 chips.
Panasonic at CES 2022 Convocation
Usually, Panasonic announced two significant updates, i.e., new OLED TV and headphones at CES. In 2022, Panasonic could change it and surprise us with something new and different. But, the rest of the announcement from Panasonic will likely come during IFA 2022.
Hisense at CES 2022 Convocation
Hisense never launched many products like Sony, Samsung, LG, and other big companies at CES. However, it’s worth visiting the booth in Las Vegas. We’re expecting another lineup of Google TV-toting smart TVs from Hisense for the UK and some new laser TVs for the USA this year. You will also find some super-futuristic display technology at Hisense’s booth. Most of these are either conceptual or exclusive in the Chinese market.
TCL at CES 2022 Convocation
TCL will offer a launchpad for its new products coming out earlier but get delayed. Apart from that, we will see an exciting range of flexible-screen devices, TVs, phones, and other gadgets from TCL at the CES 2022 convocation.
TVs from TCL are just like bread and butter. Following up on the TCL 6-series 8K TV, we expect to see a new 6-Series Mini LED TV. In recent few years, TCL has started to launch phones with their brand, and it’s expected to see the launch of the TCL 20 and TCL 30 series. Also, TCL Tabs and tablets are predicted to launch.
Prediction from AI-Gadget-Blog
Besides all the launches from the particular companies, AI-Gadget-Blog predicts the launch of some smartphones, cameras, wearables, and innovative home accessories. Does this prediction fits well or not. Let’s wait for the convocation.
Smartphones in CES 2022 Convocation
CES isn’t, but MWC (Mobile World Congress) is a stage for upcoming smartphones. However, some brands choose CES for debuting their new handsets. It includes most of the flagship-level smartphones. In comparison, mid-range and budget-friendly smartphones are usually saved for Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February.
As previously mentioned, Samsung and TCL would bring their flagship smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, TCL 20, and 30 series this year. Also, it’s expected to have pricier Samsung mid-range smartphones following up the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72. Even Motorola can show Moto G phones like in past years. At the same time, we’re expecting non-traditional, especially flexible-display phones like LG Rollable and TCL Rollable, similar to the CES 2021. However, neither has reached the market.
Cameras in CES 2022 Convocation
In recent years, the camera world has sharpened increasingly shunned CES convocation that doesn’t mean to get surprised with some reveals like previous year’s Sony Air-peak drone. We’re expecting to see Canon EOS R5c in early 2022 following its predecessor Canon EOS R5. According to the rumors, it will offer a video-focused version and active cooling to overcome the overheating issues of the R5.
Apart from the traditional cameras, the action camera maker Insta360 will introduce big at CES like before. So, it’s possible to see a new modular One R system this year. The stage of CES is ideal for new photographers with their innovative tech like the Pixii Camera shake. Moreover, with some VR captured front, Canon’s new 3D VR lens might be a new trend in CES 2022.
Smart Home Accessories in CES 2022 Convocation
Touchless tech was a big highlight at CES 2021. Kohler’s kitchen faucet for water dispensing by placing a hand in front of it, Arlo’s video doorbell for giving alert while someone is going to push the doorbell or standing on the doorstep. We expect to see more touchless tech gadgets during this ongoing global pandemic at CES 2022.
Some primary smart home devices like home security cameras with more intelligent AI give better resolutions and notify unwanted motions. A plethora of robot vacuums with better suction is expected to come with AI-enabled to navigate your home and avoid obstacles like socks, charging cables, keys, and so on small things.
Wearable in CES 2022 Convocation
Most fitness-tracking brands like Fitbit and Garmin host their product launch events for every product instead of revealing it at CES Convocation. But, it doesn’t mean Fitbit will be totally out of CES 2022. Owned by Google, Fitbit is working to bring Fitbit Apps and celebrated for WearOS – the operating system of its smartwatch.
Traditionally, CES is used to showcase new WearOS watches from the companies like Skagen, Suunto, and Withings. As they all show the latest Google-powered devices, it’s an eye-catching moment to see how the Fitbit integration will work on a smartwatch. Besides this, some other fitness trackers are expected to launch.
At CES 2021, a UK-based DNA Band revealed an uncommon watch. It uses saliva to derive data from providing customized advice during groceries shopping. So, we need to keep a close eye on the start-ups to see some weird and beautiful wearables like previous that attract an investor’s attention.
There is a change in the booth of Amazon and Fitbit in CES to launch new devices and keep the insights hidden behind a paywall. It makes the possibility for the appearance of ‘fitness tracking service.’ At CES 2022 Convocation, we might get a free fitness tracker needed a monthly subscription to see your health data.
