CES 2021 is now well underway, with Day Two bringing another big wave of tech announcements from the likes of Nvidia, AMD and Sennheiser. These followed some similarly exciting reveals from LG, Samsung, Sony and TCL on the day one, proving that CES is still a great place to get a glimpse of the near future – even when the show is a virtual affair.
So far, the biggest story of CES 2021 has arguably been the LG Rollable smartphone, which we saw for the first time in a short teaser trailer. That doesn’t mean there haven’t been some other strong contenders for the CES limelight, though.
Day two was the turn of the graphics card titans, with Nvidia and AMD both delivering big news. The confirmation that Nvidia’s RTX 3000 graphics cards are coming to gaming laptops is huge news that could see next-gen laptops arrive with a serious performance boost. Not to be outdone, AMD fought back by showing off its exciting Ryzen 5000 series of mobile processors.
This followed several big CES 2021 stories in TVs and home theater land on the previous day. Another landmark announcement was LG Display’s confirmation that 42-inch OLED TVs will launch this year. We’ve been waiting for OLED tech to arrive in smaller screen sizes for a while, so this could be big news if you’ve been thinking about getting a second screen for your home this year.
Keener to upgrade your home cinema audio? Samsung also announced a new Dolby Atmos soundbar, which could be its most immersive yet and pair nicely with its new flagship 8K TV, the Samsung Neo QN900 8K QLED TV. The tech giant also revealed some AI-powered washers and dryers for those of us who are unimpressed by the intelligence of our home appliances, and confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S21 will arrive on Thursday.
With Sony also showing off its Airpeak drone for the first time and TCL confirming that it’ll be launching a rollable or foldable phone this year, CES 2021 has been a brilliant sneak peek of the biggest launches coming this year – here are all of the most exciting stories so far.-Techradar
