The CES frenzy has officially started! Today we present to you the first news roundup with nothing but CES 2015 stories, courtesy of HTC, LG and Samsung.
HTC has taken it to Weibo (China’s version of Twitter) to tease what they have ready for CES. The flyer is written in Chinese, but we manage to get a date and some times. Get ready for January 6th, guys!
What might we be seeing from the Taiwanese manufacturer, though? The flyer’s writing clearly states “Always Desire more”. That means it’s a Desire Phone we are talking about, here.
Opinion: I really no longer know what to expect out of Desire phones. I mean, they used to be known for their affordability and mid-end quality, but then came the HTC Desire Eye
With CES just around the corner, LG is giving us a quick glimpse at what we will be looking at in Vegas. It seems their booth will include the presence of 8 4K televisions. These would be the UC9, UB9800, UF9500, UF9400, UF8500, UF7700, UF6800 and UF6700.
That doesn’t tell us much, though. Just a bunch of model numbers. What you need to know is that these will come with 3840x2160p resolution, a thinner profile, improved viewing performance and a much better interface.
We recently told you that WebOS would have a strong presence at CES, and that is because all these models will be sporting it. In addition, LG is saving specific models and prices to be unveiled at the show floor.
Opinion: It seems there will be sizes and prices for everyone, right? I am especially fond of LG panels, so I can’t wait to see these TVs at the show floor. By the way, don’t forget to join us by checking out our content. It’s all taking place next week!
I don’t tend to care much for speakers at CES. Well… at least I don’t usually plan to check them out beforehand. Samsung really has got something very special under its sleeve, though. They are teasing some speakers that straight up look like they are from the future.
Samsung calls them the WAM7500 and WAM6500. The main difference is that one uses a stand, while the other is for carrying around. They are shaped somewhat like an egg, but the best part is that this form factor allows for multi-directional sound. This means the speakers fill their surroundings with sound, as opposed to simply shooting it one direction.
The WAM6500 is the “movable type”. The main difference is that it has what looks like a handle, as well as an internal battery and full wireless connection for listening to sound from any device. Both ca be used with TVs, smartphones, tablets, speakers and the whole deal.
Opinion: OMG… I want these so bad. I haven’t wanted speakers like this in a long time.
