    The CES 2020 ensures that we start off a new decade of technology with a bang. Being the year’s greatest tech extravaganza, Las Vegas will play host to the Consumer Electronics Show to showcase the technology we can expect for the near future and beyond. With a hint of pop culture and a few automobile silhouettes, this season will also round up latest tech trends for the rest of the year.

    Last year saw many technological innovations towards consumer electronics like televisions and smart devices. This year we’re expecting autonomous vehicles to make a big splash. Greater connectivity will also be the name of the game at CES 2020 with talks of 5G getting stronger with each passing day.

    With greater connectivity comes greater content from streaming platforms. The past year has seen the rise of many greats like Disney+ as well as Apple TV. With already a plethora of streaming services to choose from, what will be the deciding factor? Content – and that depends on which streaming platform does it best.

    But when it comes right down to it, CES is always about the smart devices. Whether it’s smartphones, tablets, laptops, or even smartwatches, you can expect a truckload worth of smart devices the moment you set foot on the floor. Read on to see the full list of what you can expect from CES 2020.

    Smart Devices

    Much like what CES 2019 unveiled, this year is all about foldable smartphones. With Samsung, Huawei, and Motorola leading the charge by introducing game-changing technology, you can expect to see more manufacturers jumping into the fray soon enough. Aside from smartphones, smartwatches and other smart devices are expected to make a big splash as well, which is usually the case for CES.

    5G Connectivity

    While CES 2020 will focus on smart devices, it wouldn’t reach its potential without 5G connectivity. This year is just the beginning of the latest and fastest connection to date and we can definitely expect more in the coming years. Samsung is already on board with it by introducing the Galaxy Note 10 5G variant and it won’t be long before many other manufacturers make the leap.

    Streaming services have been popping up over the past couple of years with Netflix in the charge.
