CES 2022 lasted from January 18th to January 21st of this year, and despite several large names pulling out participation, there was no shortage of announcements from the year’s biggest tech event.
While the majority of the attention is usually focused on the names we’re all acquainted with, there were a few surprises from brands you may not be aware of. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of all the most exciting tech items introduced at CES 2022.
We noticed some fascinating aspects about convergence, such as how devices provide additional capabilities beyond their primary role. CES 2022 was surely difficult, but firms did not fail us with revolutionary devices that outperformed everything showed off the previous year.
LG G2 Television
At CES 2022, Sony will not be the only company displaying gleaming new televisions. LG, as predicted, showcased several of its next TVs, including its largest and brightest OLED screen to date. The flagship G2, which succeeds the G1, has a number of significant upgrades over its predecessor.
The most remarkable is that, thanks to new algorithms and increased heat dissipation, the G2 TV can provide a higher peak brightness than any of LG’s prior products. Even when your TV is in a room with abundant sunlight, a brighter OLED display allows you to enjoy viewing without glare.
The G2’s best feature is that it comes in a massive 97-inch version with 8K resolution, which is really incredible.
The Samsung Freestyle Projector
Do you want to recreate that movie-going experience at home? With its new ultraportable projector, The Freestyle, Samsung has you covered. This two-pound TV replacement can project up to 100 inches onto any surface, be it a wall or a screen.
The projector is mounted on a 180-degree cradle, so you may watch movies on the ceiling if you choose. What’s more surprising is that it can generate 1080p HDR video and has 360-degree sound for such a little gadget. In some markets, it’s already out for pre-order with a retail price of $899.
Intel, Nvidia, and AMD have all released new silicon
We’re cheating a little by lumping Intel, AMD, and Nvidia’s new products together. On the other hand, they’re all brand new chips. The three businesses had competed once more at CES 2022 to see who can bring the fastest and most powerful silicon.
Intel revealed the next generation of their hybrid architecture 12th Gen Alder Lake processors for laptops. The Core i9-12900 HK, which is believed to be Intel’s fastest mobile processor ever, is the flagship of the new series.
Meanwhile, Nvidia made a series of surprising announcements, including the unveiling of the much-anticipated GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card.
Odyssey Ark by Samsung
It’s up to Samsung to design cool-looking curved displays. This year, the Odyssey was debuted by the South Korean electronics behemoth.
The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, 4K resolution, and a wraparound field of view that is immersive. You can also flip it vertically to have it curl over your head, as previously described. Quantum dot color and Mini LED backlighting will also be included. Apart from this, Samsung hasn’t revealed anything else.
The monitor is scheduled to be available in the United States later this year, however the price has not yet been announced.
Sony’s QD-OLED Television
New televisions are a must-see at CES, and Sony debuted the world’s first QD-OLED TVs this year.
What exactly is QD-OLED? Quantum dot organic light-emitting diode (QD-OLED) is an acronym for quantum dot organic light-emitting diode. This is a brand-new display technology that essentially builds on what OLED already offers. Samsung Displays, the Samsung company that made and supplied the panels for Sony’s new TVs, boasts of improvements such as more vibrant colors in bright regions and greater viewing angles. You can, for example, look at your TV from the side and not notice any color changes.
The A95K has four HDMI connections, two of which are dedicated to video.
Spin 513 Chromebook by Acer
Acer‘s new Chromebook Spin 513 is a very inexpensive convertible that delivers a punch when it comes to productivity gear.
An octa-core MediaTek Kompanio 1380 processor and Arm Mali-G77 MC9 graphics power this laptop-tablet. The Kompanio 1380 is Mediatek’s latest upper mid-range chip, which is touted to represent a significant improvement over the 500 and 800 series.
Acer claims that the Spin 513’s 13.5-inch panel with a 3:2 aspect ratio provides 18 percent more vertical screen space than a 16:9 aspect ratio panel. It also has a resolution of 22561504, which is the same as the brand’s higher-end Chromebook Spin 713.
Chromebooks are rarely as adaptable as Windows computers, yet they are still affordable for everyone.
HyperSense Razer Enki Pro
Back in 2019, Razer mentioned the possibility of a vibrating gaming chair, and it’s now a step closer to being a reality.
The Enki Pro HyperSense is a gaming chair with a 65,000-haptic-variation haptic engine and +/- 1 G-Force feedback. As the gaming gear maker puts it, the physical feedback syncs with the game, movie, or music you’re playing, boosting your immersion to the next level.
In other words, when you make a quick turn in a racing game, you will not only see or hear it, but you will also feel it.
B600 Video Bar by AnkerWork
If you do a lot of video calls for work, you know how crucial it is to have a good camera and microphone to look and sound professional. The AnkerWork B600 Video Bar is a remote meeting equipment that fulfills both of these requirements, as well as others. A webcam, a key light, a microphone array, and speakers are all included in one all-in-one device.
The camera sensor captures 2K resolution video at 30 frames per second and includes field-of-view adjustments, focusing, and image enhancements powered by artificial intelligence. During meetings, the key light, on the other hand, lights your face.
To decrease ambient noise and improve clarity, the bar has a four-mic array with dynamic beamforming. It also has speakers, so you can hear the people you’re conversing with.
