What can you expect at the Samsung CES 2018 press conference?
In promo art for the press conference, Samsung depicts a phone with a stylus, a TV, a watch, a washer or dryer, a fridge, and a robot vacuum - all things the company has unveiled in previous years at the show. Just keep in mind the company plans to focus on IoT this year, so expect many of these devices to be connected or Wi-Fi enabled.
Keep in mind Samsung has already announced some products ahead of CES, such as: the Galaxy A8 phone; the first Thunderbolt 3 QLED curved monitor; the S-Ray directional audio speaker; GoBreath, a recovery solution for people who have experienced lung damage; and Relúmĭno, a smart visual aid to help people with vision challenges.
Here are some of the things it has already announced during CES 2018:
- Samsung unveils 'The Wall': The world's first MicroLED TV, set to take on OLED
- You'll be able to buy an 8K Samsung QLED TV later this year
- Samsung Family Hub smart fridge adds Bixby and SmartThings control for 2018
Rumour has it we could also see the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at CES but that's unlikely with MWC around the corner in February. We may see a teaser though.
