CES 2023 has finally wrapped up, and the week-long event has showcased some of the coolest upcoming products (and concept hardware as well) ever to grace 2023. There’s certainly been no shortage of tech at the Las Vegas-based event, and with that said, we’re highlighting some of the best products that we witnessed from the show. Let’s get started!
Razer Leviathan V2 Pro
While soundbars are nothing new, Razer ups the ante by adding some juicy new features for users after impressive audio. The Razer V2 Pro comes with 3D audio made possible by head-tracking AI, and adaptive beamforming. Simply put, it provides you with top-notch audio, which makes for a better-sounding, more immersive listening/visual media experience.
Lenovo Yoga book 9i
Lenovo has decided to push the envelope even further by unveiling the YogaBook 9i (Gen 8), made with creative professionals in mind as the dual touchscreens allow users to draw and edit images at the same time, with added flexibility that allows it to be used as a book of sorts. As for specs, there’s a 13.3-inch OLED display with a 2.8K resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate, Intel’s 13th gen Core i7-U15 processor, up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM, and up to 1TB of PCIe storage.
Lenovo Tab Extreme
Possibly one of the largest tablets to debut at CES, the Lenovo Tab Extreme is an Android behemoth that comes with a display measuring in at 14.5-inches, with a 3,000 x 1,876 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 chipset alongside 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It’s aimed at productivity, with two USB-C ports and a DisplayPort, 12,3000 mAh battery, and a detachable keyboard accessory for on-the-go working.
Perhaps one of the more interesting (albeit slightly unconventional) product unveilings at CES was the EcoFlow Blade, a lawnmower with smart capabilities. If you’ve wanted a cool excuse to delegate lawnmowing tasks, then the Blade has you covered with GPS and LiDAR navigation, and in addition to cutting grass, even collects debris and leaves for you.
Citizen CZ Smart
Citizen’s new CZ Smart takes some very interesting tech and bakes it into a small but impressive gadget. Aside from your usual array of smartwatch duties like fitness tracking, there’s also a self-care advisor that works in tandem with Citizen’s CZ Smart YouQ app, developed alongside NASA’s Ames Research Center. In terms of hardware, the watch is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100+, 8GB of storage, as well as a 1.3-inch AMOLED display available in 41mm and 44mm options.
Another unique take on health-focused wearables, Movano’s Evie ring is specially designed for women, offering features that include health and wellness metrics such as resting heart rate, heart rate variability, SpO2, respiration rate, skin temperature variability, as well as period and ovulation tracking, and menstrual symptom tracking, to name a few. It will be available in sizes 5-11, without any additional subscription plans for users.
Roborock S8 Pro Ultra
Up next we have the Roborock S8 smart vacuum series, which comes with three new models including the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra, the S8+, and the S8. They come with features including a new RockDock Ultra system that offers up features like automatic mop washing, dust emptying, self-refilling, and self-cleaning, as well as strong suction power at 6,000Pa. Roborock has also introduced a new dual rubber roller brush that can pick up dirt more effectively and prevent hair tangles, as well as a reactive 3D obstacle avoidance system that can identify obstacles and move around them.
TCL NXT Paper 12Pro
TCL is dead-set on capitalizing on the revitalized Android tablet market, as evidenced by the NXTPAPER 12 Pro. The device comes with a massive 12.2-inch display, and TCL’s own NXTPAPER display tech that creates a paper-like experience and filters blue light. As for specs, there’s a MediaTek MT8771 chipset onboard accompanied by 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. There is also a built-in 8,000mAh battery that should be last users more than a day’s worth of use.
Geared towards smart home enthusiasts, the Nanoleaf Skylight is a modular smart lighting setup that’s best suited for ceilings, which can be arranged in different ways for a unique look. The user also has complete control over the coverage area, thanks to several RGBW LED panels which are square-shaped allowing one to rearrange them as they please. Additionally, the Skylight comes with customization features like smart schedules, adjustable color brightness, temperatures, and colors as well. There’s also room for WiFi support along with Matter compatibility.
Samsung Galaxy A14
Its first launch for 2023, Samsung’s newest Galaxy A14 is aimed at budget-conscious smartphone hunters and is equipped with a 6.6-inch 90Hz display, a 5,000 mAh battery, Android 13 with Samsung’s One UI software as well as Samsung-exclusive apps, and is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, partnered with 4GB of RAM.
