The Consumers Electronics Show 2018 is officially underway, and gadget fans are already in the news. Nearly 200,000 attendees will pass through the corridors of several of the locations of CES 2018 this week, and will see thousands and thousands of new products presented in the coming days. Of course, you do not want to have to examine thousands and thousands of new products to find the best in the group. Luckily for us, that's why we're here.
We have reviewed all the most important announcements in Las Vegas so far, and we have collected the 10 most exciting new products that have been presented so far. See the full list below, and keep up with much more of CES 2018, as the show continues throughout the week.
LG OLED mobile TV
Very seriously, this is simply amazing.
Before the official start of the show last weekend, LG introduced the world's first OLED television that can be rolled up like a sheet of paper. . LG is known around the world for its magnificent OLED displays and the company is now working on a technology that will allow those screens to fit into spaces that would otherwise be impossible. Imagine a huge OLED screen that slides from the ceiling like a projection panel!
LG introduced its first paper thin OLED during last year's CES event, the LG W7 measuring only 2.57 mm thick. Taking magnificent samples of that type and placing them in tight spaces definitely seems to be the next logical step. As seen earlier, LG's current 4K prototype is rolled into a base so it can be hidden while not in use.
Samsung "The Wall" TV
Definitely, this can be archived under NEED. Last year at CES, Samsung introduced a new television called The Frame that looks like a work of art hanging on the wall. For CES 2018, Samsung decided to transform its entire wall into a television.
Samsung's new modular TV is called The Wall, and it's composed of modular MicroLED panels like the one shown above. They are completely bezelless, so they end up forming a single massive 8K television that measures 146 inches diagonally. As we said … NEEDS.
Intel H-series Chips with Radeon graphics
It's not easy to get excited about the processors, but you'll definitely be excited when Intel's latest chipset release into ultrathin laptops that are more powerful and energetic. -effective in the market at this time.
Rivals Intel and AMD have teamed up to create a new series of 8th generation Core processors that combine Intel's Kaby Lake SoC modules with discrete AMD Radeon graphics. So far no machine has been announced for the end user with the new chipsets, but you can expect to see many things throughout the week.
Nvidia Drive Xavier
Autonomous cars represent one of the most interesting technologies to proliferate in the coming years, and Nvidia has just announced the SoC that will help make this future come true. Nicknamed Nvidia Drive Xavier, the new chipset is the most complex SoC ever created, with more than 9 billion transistors. It will bring a wide range of AI characteristics to autonomous vehicles, and samples will begin to be sent to companies sometime this quarter.
LG InstaView ThinQ Refrigerator
Do refrigerators really need massive touch screens? If you had asked us a few days ago, we would have said no. Now that we have seen the new LG InstaView ThinQ refrigerator, the answer is clearly affirmative.
"LG InstaView ThinQ is the culmination of state-of-the-art cooling technology and maximum comfort and efficiency, with a 29-inch LCD touch screen that transforms from a computer screen to a transparent window with just two strokes, the Smart refrigerator recommends delicious recipes based on what is at hand to provide a revolutionary answer to the eternal question of what to eat for dinner, "LG said in a press release. "Once a recipe is selected, the refrigerator automatically sends the information to an oven connected with Alexa, verbally guiding the chef through each step of the process, for an uncomplicated cooking experience." Users can also access and listen to their songs. favorites on Amazon Music, iHeartRadio and other music streaming services directly on InstaView ThinQ for a more enjoyable culinary and dining experience. "
Nebula Capsule Pocket Cinema
The Anker Mars Nebula is by far our favorite portable projector, but it's a bit expensive if it's not something you plan to use all the time. That is why we are so excited that Anker announced on Monday the launch of the smaller counterpart of Mars, the Nebula Capsule. This new portable cinema takes everything that made Mars great and makes it a form factor the size of a soda can. Despite its impressively compact size, the device can project a bright image that measures up to 100 inches diagonally. It also presents a 360 ° sound and a battery that lasts up to 4 hours of video playback.
Oh, and unlike most of the products you will see at CES 2018, the Nebula Capsule is now available at this time.
Amazon's smart speaker line is fantastic because it acts as a delivery mechanism for Alexa. Do you know what would be even better though? Access Alexa without having to saturate your home with small speakers everywhere.
We are definitely moving towards a future without speakers for Alexa thanks to devices such as the ecobee4 smart thermostat and the GE Sol lamp. Now, iDevices Instinct can be added to the stack. This elegant light switch is installed in place of the old boring switches, adding connected light control along with built-in Alexa voice services, giving you access to all Alexa skills without taking up any additional space in your home.
Samsung Q9S 8K TV
An 85-inch 8K television with a beautiful Samsung screen is quite impressive by itself, but the recently introduced Samsung Q9S also has something more to offer. As there is basically no 8K content, the Q9S uses AI to improve the lower resolution content at 8K.
Here are some points from Samsung's press release:
- First, QLED TV, based on AI technology, is equipped with a database that studies and analyzes millions of images in advance to transform low resolution content into high resolution. When powered by a low-resolution source, this QLED TV function selects the optimum filter and converts the source into a high-quality image.
- In addition, by increasing image processing 64 times, the technology helps to offer natural images in high resolution, without compromising the gradation in the image. In the image of an aurora, for example, the television offers consumers a subtle and impeccable gradation.
- Finally, the new QLED TV classifies the image quality elements (black / bloom / brightness) in the input sources per scene to produce images with richer and more detailed contrast. With the function, the edges of the text become clear and an image of moonlight is offered with the edges of the moon in the background clear, not blurry.
MirraViz UltraBright MultiView screen
The California-based startup, MirraViz, is probably not a name I'm familiar with at the moment. But you will be quite familiar with the company once you review your new UltraBright MultiView screen.
In short, this revolutionary projection screen allows users to point two different projectors on the same screen, producing two completely different images. The special screen basically bounces on each projected image in the same direction from which it comes, allowing two different people in two different positions to see different images on the same screen. On top of that, it's incredibly bright, as you can see in the following video:
The UltraBright MultiView screen is now available starting at $ 499.99.  Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra
Sony has had a difficult time in the mobile market in recent years, but the company introduced three new smartphones on Monday morning that it hopes will help straighten the ship. We cover the three new models today, but our favorite is undoubtedly the Xperia XA2 Ultra.
This midrange phablet will offer users excellent upper mid-level performance and features included in an excellent looking shell. It also includes a double-lens camera, but it's on the front instead of on the back, as expected. On the back there is a 23-megapixel single-lens shooting game with the latest Sony Exmor RS sensor. Depending on the price when the XA2 Ultra is launched next month, it could be a hard-to-reach phone in the mid-range market.
