If you have not had time to focus your eyes on CES, it does not matter, and today we are here to show you all the news that CES 2017 left us. There have been few, but we have been left with the desire to see some Renowned presentation or appearance on the scene of a truly innovative or promising device. This has not been and for now it is time to settle and review the many things that we have seen in this event of worldwide relevance.
Smartphones, an almost untouchable world for CES
In a few weeks, the Mobile World Congress will start in Barcelona where the most prominent manufacturers of mobile devices will meet to present their new developments for 2017. This makes CES an event in which smartphones are not the main protagonists , as it happens in many other events.
Huawei dared showing its Honor Magic, which he had already officially presented days ago at an event in China. Another Chinese manufacturer such as Xiaomi officially confirmed that the Mi Mix will arrive very soon in a white version only in China and took the opportunity to reaffirm his idea that his new flagship is the device of the future. With OnePlus we closed the Chinese circle and that is also the manufacturer of the Asian country announced a OnePlus 3T in gold.
Asus dared more than just a color change and officially presented the Asus ZenFone AR and Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom. BlackBerry was the last manufacturer to appear on the scene, to present a new device, the BlackBerry Mercury, with which to try once again the position it had until recently in the mobile phone market.
Alexa, the Amazon assistant
Despite not being present at CES 2017, Amazon has been one of the great protagonists, thanks to its assistant Alexa which is integrated into more than a dozen devices presented during the event held in Las Vegas. Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, probably never thought they could go this far with Alexa when they officially introduced it some time ago.
Between the most prominent devices where Alexa appears integrated, the following stand out;
- LG introduced a new fridge and a robot that can be controlled using Alexa
- Whirlpool's new line of dishwashers, refrigerators and ovens will also be able to be controlled through the Amazon assistant
- Samsung did not miss his appointment with Alexa and is that his new robot broom can be controlled using the voice, something that can be really comfortable and above all practical
- Lenovo, one of the manufacturers of the moment, presented a smart home assistant that is based on Alexa
Until recently, the Amazon assistant was only integrated into the devices of the large virtual store, but in a very short time it has made the leap to many other devices, from a huge number of manufacturers, who seem to have opted for Alexa rather than one. of the many other virtual assistants that are available on the market.
CES is increasingly taking dyes to become a motor show, although with certain different from those of a lifetime, and it is that in this only autonomous and electric cars are seen that are increasingly fashionable and more popular.
In this edition of the event held in Las Vegas we could see the cars of some of the most prominent manufacturers on the international scene such as BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota or Nissan. In addition, Ford also had its place, which presented the first hybrid version of the legendary Mustang.
Not only could we see new vehicles, but also some manufacturers such as Chrysler and Hyundai integrated Android into their cars or how Nissan will implement Cortana, Microsoft's virtual assistant, in some of its new vehicles.
Televisions, one of the strengths of CES
The latest editions of CES have had televisions as the main protagonists. And is that some of the most prominent manufacturers in this market have decided to present their new devices at this event, where "curves" and "4K" are increasingly common.
Among the novelties that we have seen these days, the new OLED W7 from LG that has a thickness of only 2.57 millimeterSo what is the same that is thinner than any of the fingers of your hand. Samsung of course did not want to be left behind and for this, it officially presented the new Q line that boasts an invaluable thickness and also one of the highest brightness on the market.
Sony, another of the greats in the television market, managed to surpass Samsung and LG, and it is that with its new device it has managed to attract the attention of all those attending CES. And it is not for less thanks to his 2.5-millimeter-thick TV that uses its own screen as a speaker, vibrating it to amplify its sound.
Of course and as every year we have been able to see true innovations of all kinds, with gigantic televisions, with revolutionary designs and with new incorporated technologies that will undoubtedly be something of the most everyday in the not too distant future.
There is also a site at CES for gamers
Although we could say that computers go more than unnoticed by CES, gamers continue to have their place at the event and there have been few manufacturers who have remembered this group of users.
ACER For example, he presented a laptop, which we could describe without any problem as a real beast, which would be the dream of any computer game fan, thanks to its 21-inch curved screen, its 64 GB of RAM or the latest generation Intel Core i7 processor that mounts insider. Unfortunately, and as we already said, it will be a dream for many and that is that its base price will be 9.000 euros.
Another of the manufacturers that managed to attract the attention of the attendees was Razer who presented a project that enlarges the image of a lifelong screen on a wall and also a laptop with nothing more and nothing less than three 17-inch screens that is hidden in the top cover.
