The most interesting things from CES 2020: TVs, flexible displays and smartphones

The first major technology exhibition is behind us and we can sum up its results. At CES 2020, we showed a lot of interesting things, but we will stick to the topic of consumer electronics.

Smartphones There were no incomplete announcements of new models. Manufacturers talked about their ideas and discussed how the industry could change in the future.

The OnePlus Concept One was not particularly revolutionary. The manufacturer simply used a new type of glass that can change the transparency. As a result, we get a more pleasant back cover, which can have both one and ten sensors, as well as the ability to take good pictures with a lot of light.

Hisense Color became the first smartphone with a color e-ink display. It remains to be seen how it will perform in practice, but for those who like to stare at the screen for hours on end — a great choice.Cyrcle Phone is just a round smartphone that hardly anyone needs, but it attracts attention.Screens Samsung introduced the Q950 TV, the screen of which occupies 99% of the area of the front panel. Its thickness is 15 millimeters, and the resolution of the matrix is 8K.

Samsung The Sero is a rotating TV that can be installed in a vertical position.The new ULED XD panels from Hisense consist of two LCD layers at once. Color is responsible for showing the image, and black and white blocks light from bright pixels, providing almost reference black without the burnout characteristic of OLED.ASUS together with NVIDIA presented the first gaming monitor ROG Swift 360 Hz, the main feature of which, as you can understand from the name, was the image refresh rate of 360 Hz. The response is only 2.8 ms.

The bendable screens in this field were particularly active.

TCL showed its vision of a bendable device. Her planet smartphone is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy Fold, but lacks an external screen. It has a 7.2-inch display and quite large frames. It will be discussed in detail at MWC 2020.The first bendable laptop finally got its official name. It will be sold under the name Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold. It has a 13.3-inch OLED matrix with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. You can use it both in the classic format with a physical keyboard, and in the doubled-up format. The model will go on sale in the second half of the year.

The concept of its bendable tablet was also shown by Intel, but this is definitely only a concept that looks quite impressive. The release of Widows 10X (the OS version for bendable screens) will certainly push this category of devices.

Many people assumed that Sony would show the new PlayStation 5 console at CES 2020, but instead only presented the official logo. It's nothing special.

Panasonic has introduced the world's first virtual reality glasses with UHD and HDR support. So far, they will not be sold freely, but a device with such a design would definitely find a response among consumers, so everything will take its time.

Wearable electronics company Withings has revealed the ScanWatch, which is a real mix of regular and smart watches. In addition to the classic dial, they have a very small additional display on which you can view notifications or data about physical activity. They are protected from water ingress and operate for up to 30 hours on a single charge.Huami revealed the first protected Amazfit T-Rex smartwatch with a Casio G-Shock design, updated the popular Amazfit Bip S, and introduced the first fully wireless PowerBuds headphones with a heart rate sensor.

The next exhibition in line is MWC 2020, which will be held from 24 to 27 February in Barcelona.
