2019 Show Delivers with 8K TVs, Foldable Phones
The previews of the CES 2019 line-up of products were being pooh-poohed by some industry wonks just before the doors were to open. They predicted a repeat of 2018. Rumors of the show’s demise were premature. The show was a hit for attendees who visited the thousands of entrepreneurs, established high-tech leaders.
In addition, hope-filled vendors with a dream showed their best and brightest ideas to the crowd. Here are some of the amazing devices and upgrades you missed if you decided not to attend this year.
8K TV was big this year at The CES 2019 Show in Las Vegas. The giants like Samsung, LG, Sony, and Panasonic all showcasing new and updated TVs, foldable smartphones, tech wearables and more. Some TVs that roll out like a tube and measure 65 inches in screen size.
The weird stuff included diaper monitors, walking cars, and even a wooden deep breathing device.
