CES 2015, The International Consumer Electronics Show is one of the most awaited tech events for those waiting to see what the latest developments and trends in technology are likely to be. The event isn’t just about smartphones and tablets, but about the kind of technology that will be big soon, maybe not in 2015 but perhaps in the coming decade.
So what can we expect over here? Yes, The internet Of Things. This means that the next level of evolution for the Internet, where even daily household objects such as television sets, cars, homes, kitchen appliances, are all connected to the web. It all sounds very much like science-fiction, but the reality is that these changes are already taking place.
9 Things to look out at CES 2015
As it happens every year, CES 2015 will kick-off the new year for the tech industry. The first big tech show of the year is scheduled for January 6 to 9 and there’s a lot to look forward to. The attention is usually on phones, but there’s a lot that happens. So, here are some things you can look forward to at the CES this year.
1. LG Web OS 2.0
The next version of LG’s WebOS is coming at CES. The company sent out a tweet confirming the same. WebOS has been an effort by LG to resurrect the OS for televisions. A wide range of LG Smart-TVs running on WebOS 2.0 are expected to be showcased at CES 2015.
2. Xiaomi Mi5
Chinese upstart Xiaomi has been in the news for all kinds of reasons in 2014. The company is expected to unveil its newest flagship, the Xiaomi Mi5, at the tech show this month. The Mi5 will reportedly have a bezel-less design, with the Snapdragon 810 SoC.
3. LG G Watch R2
Wearables took a big step in 2014 and the LG G Watch R (in image) was definitely one of the best looking ones out there. The next iteration will reportedly be 4G enabled along with Google’s Android Wear platform.

5. Sony SmartEyeGlass
The Google Glass isn’t even available commercially yet, but it already has competitors. The first and possibly the biggest one of these is expected to be seen at the CES this year. Sony’s SmartEyeGlass is the Japanese company’s take on smart spectacles.
6. Samsung Galaxy S6
You can’t really ignore phones can you? Especially when the market leader is expected to bring out its next flagship smartphone. Samsung said it went back to square one for the Galaxy S6 and made a phone from scratch. Let’s hope the tired old design will be gone and we’ll get to see a good device.

LG’s curved display G Flex wasn’t the hit it was supposed to be, but it was a good start. The G Flex 2 has been rumoured to run on the Snapdragon 810 SoC and is expected at the CES.
8. Sony Xperia Z4
Sony has been following the two flagships a year practice for a while now. It’s been time enough since the Xperia Z3 was released and the Xperia Z4 is supposedly making an appearance at the tech show. The device reportedly has a DSLR-like camera that uses phase-shift autofocus systems.
9. Asus Zenfone with 4G LTE
Bonus: Best of the rest
There’s a lot more that’s expected. Toshiba, Panasonic and Sharp are expected to showcase new TVs, while Philips is adding to its line of audio products. There are also rumours about Nvidia bringing a successor to its Tegra K1 mobile processor.
CES is the logical next step in the evolution of everyday technology and it will only offer a glimpse of what is to come. Hopefully companies won’t ignore the security side of these futuristic technologies as well and will address them in CES 2015.
