CES 2023 was a showcase of the latest and greatest in technology, and it did not disappoint. From cutting-edge televisions to innovative smart home devices, there was something for everyone at the show. Here are 12 exciting products that stood out at CES 2023:
#1. OLED Computer Monitors
At CES 2023, we saw the introduction of several new computer monitors featuring OLED technology. Also, LG, Acer, and Asus all announced 27-inch monitors with OLED displays, which offer far better contrast and color vibrancy than traditional IPS displays. The monitors have a resolution of 2560×1440 and a refresh rate of 240 Hz, making them perfect for gaming.
Furthermore, unlike standard IPS displays, OLED panels don’t have a backlight that glows through and illuminates a picture. Rather, they rely on millions of unique LEDs that can turn off and on individually, which permits nearly infinite contrast and better color reproduction. This results in a more vivid and lifelike image, which is particularly beneficial for gamers looking for an immersive experience.
One of the biggest advantages of OLED technology is its ability to produce true blacks. Because each pixel turns off individually, there is no light bleeding, resulting in a much higher contrast ratio. This is especially beneficial for dark scenes in games and movies, where the contrast ratio is critical.
#2. Samsung ViewFinity S9
Samsung’s ViewFinity S9 display is a game-changer for creative professionals. The monitor offers 5K resolution, 600 nits of brightness, and 99% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. It is the same as Apple’s extremely expensive Studio Display. One of the most notable features of the ViewFinity S9 display is its ability to be calibrated with an Android phone. This makes the process infinitely easier and more realistic for most people to do.
Calibrating a monitor is a process that typically requires equipment that costs hundreds or even thousands of dollars, as well as a bit of expertise. With the ViewFinity S9, you can easily calibrate your monitor with an Android phone, which makes it much more accessible for most people.
The ViewFinity S9 also offers some other impressive features. It can charge laptops with up to 96 W of power, which is more than the 65 W of the current 4K monitor pick, the Dell S2722QC. It also comes with a non-reflective matte finish, which makes it great for working in brightly-lit rooms.
#3. Lenovo Think Book Twist
Lenovo’s new Yoga Book 9i is a unique laptop that features not one, but two 13.3-inch OLED screens, used in a variety of positions. The laptop comes with a kickstand, an external keyboard, and a stylus, which allows you to use it as a normal laptop. But with its two wide screens, it can also be used in a stacked position, with one screen for a meeting and the other for presentation notes, or even with two side-by-side vertical screens. It can also be laid flat like a paper notebook, with two pages open in front of you, this will be especially useful for creatives, designers, and artists.
#4. Noesis Florio 2-in-1 Robotic Floor Cleaner
The Noesis Florio is a robotic floor cleaner, set to release in February, and it seems to be the perfect cleaning solution for those who want a hands-free, efficient and convenient way to keep their floors clean. The Florio can be programmed to switch automatically between vacuuming, dry mopping, wet mopping, and vacuuming-and-wet-mopping combined.
#5. Intel N-Series Processors
Intel’s new 13th-generation N-series processors seem to have a potential solution to the problem of finding affordable Windows laptops that don’t feel miserable to use for basic tasks. The i3-N300 and i3-N305 processors, in particular, are being viewed as promising options for budget laptops. The i3-N305 will be available in the updated Acer Aspire 3, starting at $350 for the 15-inch model and $500 for the 14-inch version.
#6. Fellow Opus coffee grinder
The Fellow Opus is a newer, more affordable coffee grinder from Fellow, designed for mainstream coffee drinkers. This product features off-the-shelf conical burrs for consistent grounds and a more plastic body design to lower the cost. It also has an internal adjustment wheel for fine grinds for espresso and can handle all kinds of coffee styles. It is slightly taller than the Ode model but still compact.
#7. Samsung Bespoke kitchen line
Samsung’s Bespoke line offers customizable panels for appliances in unique brushed steel colors, making unique kitchen designs more accessible. Additionally, these panels are easy to install and change and effortlessly affixed to Samsung dishwashers, stoves, washers, dryers, and refrigerators. The highlight of the series is the Bespoke 4-Door Flex Refrigerator with Family Hub, which features a 32-inch touchscreen that allows you to monitor other Bespoke kitchen appliances, stream content, or upload photos via a Google Photos integration.
#8. Razer Blade 18
In the past, high-end gaming laptops with cutting-edge graphics required a bulky power supply, and chassis, and generated high surface temperatures. However, advancements in power management from Intel and possibly AMD, combined with improvements in Nvidia’s 40-series RTX mobile graphics chipsets, are resulting in a new batch of higher-end gaming laptops at this year’s CES that are more portable and cooler.
#9. Roku’s own TV line
Roku will be launching its line of value-oriented Roku TVs in the spring. Besides, the latest range will consist of 11 LCD TVs (both HD & 4K). It varies from 24 to 75 inches and is priced from $120 to $1,000. Moreover, these TVs will come with either the standard Roku Voice Remote or the Voice Remote Pro. And some models will include advanced technologies such as local-dimming LED backlights. Roku is still partnering with TV manufacturers like TCL and Hisense to sell Roku-based TVs, and this new line of TVs does not affect those partnerships.
#10. LG Signature Wireless OLED TV
Wireless TVs are a thing now. LG has unveiled its LG Signature wireless OLED TV. The TV is 97 inches and uses a transmitter box to send audio and video signals. Further, this technology offers an additional level of convenience and portability which could potentially make it a more attractive option than popular lifestyle TVs like Samsung’s Frame. The LG Signature OLED M3 also features a 97-inch 4K OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and self-lit pixels, as well as AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync technologies. No release date or price announced yet, though expected to be expensive.
#11. Samsung SmartThings Station
The Samsung SmartThings Station is the latest smart home hub to hit the market. This device got recently announced at CES 2023 as an all-in-one solution for connecting and controlling any smart home device. The Station will function as a smart home hub for all your connected devices, letting you control them with the press of a button while having access to all of the latest technologies. This device can connect with your smart home and Matter-enabled devices for simpler automation. SmartThings is an umbrella control and automation forum for a range of first- and third-party gadgets, not just Samsung’s. It is also compatible with voice assistants such as Samsung’s Bixby, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google Assistant.
#12. CosmOS by Sonical
Sonical’s CosmOS is an innovative operating system for headphones and hearing aids. This will allow users to download apps and customize their devices to fit their specific needs. It can send and receive information over Wi-Fi, RFI, and the like, and it is compatible with Windows, Apple, and Android devices. Moreover, the OS will be able to plug in the specs of individual headphones. So that apps can adapt to the needs of that specific set and take out some of the guesswork when creators are mixing audio and designing features. With this new technology, headphones and hearing aids will become modular, allowing for more customization and versatility. Sonical will have announcements this year about early headphone models that are adopting this technology. Also, it is expected that true wireless headphones with increased processing power will become the norm in the next few years.
