CES is an annual trade show organized by the Consumer Technology Association. The event hosts presentations of new products and technologies in the consumer electronics industry. Here’s what we expect to see at CES 2020.
CES 2020 — All That You Need To Know About It
We are expecting to see more laptops sporting mobile broadband. Faster always-connected laptops, and on top of that can act as a hotspot. We are hoping to see a broader range of devices joining the fray with 5G. Rumors have it that Apple will be joining the ‘party’ too with 5G MacBooks.
Qualcomm will be a significant player in the 5G technology as the company recently revealed its Snapdragon 7c and 8c chips. The company is attending to bring always-connected systems to mainstream consumers in broadly. However, we should also keep an eye for Qualcomm’s 8cx processor.
A 7-nanometer chip, the 8cx chip, is featured in the company’s Project Limitless concept and is assumed to achieve better performance and a more lasting battery life along with LTE connectivity. Rumors have it that Samsung is also working on a 5G tablet, the Galaxy Tab S6. According to what some say, Intel is teaming up with MediaTek to make their 5G laptops, which means that Qualcomm may have competition.
Foldable PCs and dual screens
While we may not see many or any of the foldable tablets at CES 2020, it is the next step in computer technology. As foldable phones are now a trend, we do expect to see several new concepts as companies are now exploring this new medium.
If there would be any foldable computers at the event, it will more likely come from Lenovo. We may see Foldable ThinkPad X1 at CES 2020! Lenovo’s possible competitor might be Microsoft with the Surface Neo.
Laptop manufacturers are getting a grip on this new concept as well. Asus is leading the charge with excellent laptops such as the ZenBook Pro Duo and the ZenBook 15. However, t we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a lot of dual-screen concepts at the show.
Advanced Micro Devices returns
AMD’s been doing amazingly on the desktop front over the past few years. We are suspecting the company to have a comeback on the mobile front. We hope to see laptops sporting either a Ryzen CPU or a Radeon GPU, and possibly getting AMD processors in laptops; however, graphics cards will be more promising. It is time to have a more extensive range to pick from besides Intel and Nvidia.
More 10th Gen
Intel company is still working on introducing its Project Athena initiative. And that means more laptops!
Business laptops that have Intel’s vPro technology are limited to use 8th Gen chips due to to10th Gen not supporting the technology yet. We are also anticipating to see the release of 10th Gen H-series processors for gaming laptops.
