Expectations are not very high from LG’s press conference, things could change at the last minute. There’s a strong buzz of the arrival of a new K-series smartphones at CES 2018. Rumours also point to the launch of the G7 flagship smartphone, though it’s less likely the announcement will happen at CES.

Sony

Every year Sony announces new products at CES in Las Vegas. Sony, even though, hasn’t unveiled at new products at this point, but we can expect to see a lot of new devices on January 8. The company is expected to launch a new range of OLED TVs, premium headphones, next-generation of mirrorless cameras, and other products, though we doubt the company will launch its much-awaited bezel-less smartphone at CES. Instead, the announcement might take place at MWC in Barcelona next month.

Qualcomm

Qualcomm is expected to talk about 5G, the next-generation of wireless networks, in detail at CES 2018. While we’re not expected to see first generation of smartphones designed for 5G at this year’s CES, Qualcomm will instead highlight how consumers can benefit from 5G in 2018. After all, 5G will offer much faster speeds than 4G LTE. In the US, AT&T announced that it expects to introduce mobile 5G service in a number of markets in 2018. Verizon, a major wireless carrier, will launch a 5G network in the second half of the year in the US. Qualcomm will also likely discussing benefits of Windows 10-powered PCs with its Snapdragon chips.

Intel

Intel has been in the center stage after it revealed that the design flaw found on processors by the company affects millions of Window PCs and Macs manufactured in the last decade or so. But Intel will make sure the controversy doesn’t affect the company’s new Kaby Lake G, which incorporates an Intel 8th-gen CPU with a custom-built AMD Radeon GPU. Intel first talked about its collaboration with AMD in November last year. The chipset promises to bring thinner, lighter, and powerful premium laptops. Expect a number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Dell and HP announcing laptops with the processor.
