The 10 coolest products of CES 2020
First 5G notebooks: Dell, HP, and Lenovo
For over a year we have been talking about 5G smartphones; now it is time to start talking about 5G notebooks. Dell, HP, and Lenovo showcased their first laptops with 5G connectivity at CES 2020. To be honest, Dell already unveiled the first 5G laptop a few days ago, but at CES 2020 it announced its 2 in 1 version. HP announced the Elite Dragonfly G2, while Lenovo came up with the Yoga 5G 2 in 1. The laptops support 5G connectivity thanks to Qualcomm’s modem and they all run Windows 10.
OnePlus Concept One
OnePlus attended CES 2020 with a concept phone: the OnePlus Concept One. Its key feature is the invisible camera technology. The concept model is a smartphone with a leather rear in the iconic Papaya Orange color of McLaren and invisible triple cameras on the backside. The cameras are placed underneath an electrochromic glass which can change from opaque to transparent making the cameras effectively invisible while not used. The company said that it takes 0.7 seconds for the glass to transition from transparent to opaque or vice versa. The glass is also able to become semi-transparent so that the user can shoot better photos in very bright sunlight. The panel includes two 0.1 mm glass panels and organic material for a thickness of just 0.35 mm. OnePlus Concept One will probably never hit the shelves, but we might see this technology on board of the OnePlus 8 series.

Despite being Lite variants, these devices still come bundled with high-end specifications, including Exynos 9810 and Snapdragon 855 chipsets, as well as great camera departments including a new optical stabilization technology.

Lenovo unveiled the world’s first foldable laptop (with a foldable display) at CES 2020 and it is not a concept anymore. Its name is ThinkPad X1 Fold and it will be available to purchase this year. The laptop is equipped with a Plastic OLED display boasting a 4:3 aspect ratio, a 13.3-inch diagonal and a 2K resolution. The laptop weighs just 999 grams but it includes a good 55 Wh battery lasting 11 hours on a single charge, according to Lenovo. It is fueled by a next gen Intel Core CPU paired with 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 1 TB of internal storage (SSD), it includes a SIM card slot and two USB Type-C ports. The laptop may include a 5G modem.
Samsung NEON technology
Samsung NEON is not a hardware product but it is a new technology. It is a technology able to give a body and a face to chatbots. It creates avatars able to interact with real people for a series of tasks to be accomplished. The software managing the avatars is able to generate new expressions, movements, and dialogues in real time, automatically, in just a few milliseconds. This will make the virtual avatar extremely realistic.

The official video shows the robot solving problems and helping the user in a very smart way: you can check it below.
Sony VISION-S concept car
A lot of people expected Sony to unveil the PS5 at CES 2020, but it did not happen (the company only unveiled the new PS5 logo). Instead, Sony came up with a concept car: the Vision-S. It is Sony’s first electric car and it was built by the company’s AI and robotics team. The car features 33 sensors able to detect people and other vehicles inside and outside the car in order to provide driving support.

The MicroLED panel provides perfect black levels and high brightness for a quality that is potentially better than OLED without the risk of burn-in.
