    2020 International CES will begin on Tuesday, January 7 and ends on Friday, January 10

    It's almost that time of the year again, CES 2020 is a week away and already there are lots of news teasers from vendors as to what will be shown:

    5 Innovations That Will Dominate CES 2020
    CES 2020 is set to give a glimpse of the leaps forward that today's consumers are most excited about.

    Meet Neon, Samsung’s artificial human (who is nothing like Bixby), at CES 2020
    By Aaron Mamiit December 29, 2019 8:30AM PST

    "Samsung is set to unveil a new artificial intelligence product named Neon at CES 2020, and apparently, it will be nothing like the company’s A.I.-powered digital assistant Bixby.
    Not much is known about Neon so far, aside from what has been posted so far on the product’s social media pages. The pinned tweet for Neon’s official Twitter account, meanwhile, is just three words that form a cryptic message.

    NEON (@neondotlife) December 27, 2019

    Supporting the “Artificial Human” teaser is a series of posters bearing the tagline “Have you met an ‘artificial’?”, with some of them in foreign languages.

    Have you ever met an "ARTIFICIAL"?

    NEON (@neondotlife) December 23, 2019

    The speculation was that Neon is a more advanced version of Bixby, as Samsung has described the product as an “artificial intelligence being” that may become a user’s “best friend.” This certainly calls to mind a digital assistant like Bixby, but Neon’s official Twitter account shot down the comparison.

    Honored to have so much coverage even before we unveil. But contrary to some news, NEON is NOT about Bixby, or anything you have seen before. #NEON is coming to #CES2020, so stay tuned! @neondotlife NEON (@neondotlife) December 26, 2019

    Neon is developed by the Samsung Technology and Advanced Research Labs, or STAR Labs. Leading the unit as its President and CEO is Pranav Mistry, who is best known for his work on the Sixth Sense augmented reality technology and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

    Mistry himself apparently could not contain his excitement for Neon.

    For past few years, I have been working on something exciting. FOLLOW @neondotlife to learn more. Please SHARE and ask your friends to join, too. https://t.co/m3DEbTqqYe pic.twitter.com/jaWgALTzj4

    Samsung’s Bixby is different from its rival digital assistants, namely Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant, and Amazon’s Alexa, as the software is spread out to several apps, and on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, those are Bixby Home, Bixby Vision, and Bixby Voice. Not all Samsung smartphone users are a fan of Bixby though, which has resulted in tutorials on how to remap the Bixby Key at the sides of Galaxy S10, Galaxy S9, and Galaxy S8 devices.

    It remains to be seen exactly how Neon will be different from Bixby, and how it will be an improvement to the shortcomings of Samsung’s digital assistant. Fortunately, the wait will not be for long, as Neon is set to be unveiled after just over a week at CES 2020.

    In addition to Neon, here is what we expect to see at CES 2020. The annual trade show will officially open the exhibition floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center on January 7.


    "Artificial Human
    Samsung is teasing plans to unveil what it calls an “artificial human” called NEON at the Consumer Electronics Show, which kicks off January 7.

    For the past couple of weeks, a series of posts from the official NEON social media accounts have asked the same question in various languages — “Have you ever met an ‘ARTIFICIAL’?” — with a post shared on December 26 spelling it out that “NEON = ARTIFICIAL HUMAN.”

    Digital Trends
    It's December, and that can only mean one thing: There's less than a month to go until the world's leading manufacturers take to Las Vegas to showcase their latest hardware at CES 2020. Here's everything you need to know.

    CES 2020 Preview: What to expect

    5G devices & 8K TVs will be everywhere. Foldables, Smart Cars and Sex Toys. The Smart Home. AI Assistants. These are the big tech trends expected to dominate CES 2020. What are some of yours?

    LG OLED TV "Surprise" at CES 2020 |CB#42
    Dec 24, 2019
    FOMO on tech
    LG is still innovating OLED TVs as it makes a "surprise" announcement for CES 2020, and it’s a doozy - let’s check it out!

    Samsung Readying "Dual LED" TV for CES 2020: QLED Mini LED TV? |CB#28
    Oct 26, 2019
    FOMO on tech
    What's up with the Dual LED TV that Samsung is secretly developing? FOMO has some ideas, let's dig into the possibilities! "Dual LED" hmmm....

    Maybe another format war on the horizon?... Samsung left in the cold by CTA (CES hosts) with CTA's 8KHD certification - which Samsung 8k failed to meet.

    Samsung 8K TVs Fail Test Set by CES 2020 Organizers!? |CB#15
    Sep 20, 2019
    FOMO on tech
    The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) recently established specifications to certify 8K TVs, and Samsung's newest 8K TVs apparently fall short. This is a problem for Samsung because the CTA also organizes CES 2020. Can Samsung fix their 8K TVs by CES or will they do something else? Let's unwrap this!

    The CES 2020 Innovation Awards are done months ahead of the actual show, and the awards were announced for Samsung back in November:

    Samsung Electronics wins 46 CES 2020 Innovation Awards
    Nov 7, 2019

    All of the honoree's for the CES 2020 Innovation Awards are listed on this CES 2020 page:

    CES 2020 Innovation Awards
    The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products.

    I can already see some of these products (TWS, IEM's, Headphones) are superseded with newer models recently.

    The Samsung 30TB SSD might still hold the top title in it's category:

    Samsung 30.72TB PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD

    By Samsung Electronics
    Honoree - Computer Hardware & Components
    Samsung 30.72TB PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD (PM1733) is the industry’s fastest and largest capacity SSD. It is based on next-gen PCIe Gen4 solid state technology, and is targeted at AI analysis, big data and IoT applications, as well as other apps requiring extremely high reliability and performance.

    CES also brings together markets outside the US early for exposure to what is coming at the next CES:

    The only thing I would care about in Ces 2020 is new 17" laptops with 4k 120hz panels, and lots of them. Amd won't give anything new for lappies, neither Intel nor Nvidia..

    17", 4k/120hz, and the 65w variant of the 3900x. Day one purchase here if someone can deliver that in a decent chassis for 3k or less.

    Monday, 6th Jan at 2:00 p.m. PST is the AMD Keynote by Lisa Su :)

    AMD will live stream its 6th Jan CES 2020 press conference
    by Mark Tyson on 2 January 2020, 11:11

    "AMD has officially announced that it will be holding a press conference at CES 2020. The big Las Vegas tech show officially starts on Tuesday 7th January. However, AMD and some other big players traditionally unveil important products, make big announcements, and tease the latest and greatest in tech a day ahead of the show opening its doors to the public. Thus the AMD press conference at CES 2020 is scheduled for Monday, 6th Jan at 2:00 p.m. PST at the Mandalay Bay resort."

    AMD Media Days News Conference
    Monday, January 6 2:00 – 2:45 PM

    "AMD today announced that it will hold a press conference as a part of the official CES 2020 Media Days, and hosted by AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. The event is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 6 at 2:00 p.m. PST at the Mandalay Bay.
