The Consumer Electronics Show (CES), one of the world’s largest events showcasing the latest in technology, is all set to begin at Las Vegas. And this year promises to be bigger and better than ever. Here’s what we’re hoping to see some of our favorite tech companies bring to CES 2013:
Asus: According to rumors, Asus will showcase some of its 7-inch tablets at the event. One such tablet we’re hoping to get a look at is the Asus ME172V, an affordable Android tablet with a 7-inch 1024X600 pixel resolution display, a low-end processor and a price-tag of $130. We could also get to see the Asus ME371MG, a 7-inch tablet with an IPS display having a resolution of 1280X800 pixels, powered by an Intel Atom processor, and a 3 MP camera. This tablet could be priced at under $250.
HTC: HTC could offer a peek at the HTC M7 flagship smartphone for 2013 – featuring a 1080p resolution display and powered by a Qualcomm S4 processor. We can hopefully also get a look at 7-inch and 12-inch tablets from HTC running on Windows RT at the event.
LG: We’ve been hearing rumors that LG’s busy working on a high-end Android phablet with a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1080p and powered by a Snapdragon S4 processor. Maybe CES 2013 is when we get to see this nifty device? LG could also showcase its new range of SoCs powered by Cortex-A15 processors and Mali-T604 graphics that could power mobile devices as well as smart TVs and other gadgets.
Samsung: Of course, this is going to generate the greatest level of excitement at the event. World’s largest smartphone maker is expected to show its bendy 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED displays. We’re also hoping to get a peek at Samsung’s 13.3-inch slate that resembles the Asus Transformer, as well as Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which would be powered by a 1.6 GHz Exynos 4412 processor and have a screen with a resolution of 1280X800 pixels. Samsung might even showcase its Galaxy S4, but only to its company executives. Maybe it would even give us a little insight into its new range of Tizen smartphones during CES 2013.
Sony: Now, we all know how Sony is working aggressively to increase its lineup of Android-based smartphones. So maybe CES 2013 will be the event when Sony would take the wraps off its Sony Xepria Z or Yuga monster phone with a 5-inch display, as well as Odin smartphone, both of which would feature HD displays and Exmor RS cameras. Also expected to be showcased is the affordable HuaShen Android smartphone.
