The annual event in the technology industry, CES (International Consumer Electronics Show) is kicking off, but unlike the past, the four-day CES 2021 will be held online from January 11, US time.
In 2021, the information industry is full of uncertainties. With only online participation, how will the “CES Show” allow participants to experience the excitement of using Electronic products? Is there anything worth listening to and paying attention to in this international event? Which tech heavyweights will emerge?
That’s all for attendees to wait and see, but one thing’s for sure: 5G will be the focus of next week’s CES show.
Like last year, 5G will dominate the entire conversation.
Hans Vestberg, CEO of Verizon, the largest wireless communications company in the United States, was the first to deliver a keynote speech at CES.
On the evening of January 11, he will give a speech on the topic of “Speech on Next-Generation Mobile Phone Technology”, kicking off the conference.
This morning, Samsung held an online press conference before the official opening of CES, and officially launched the Samsung Neo QLED and Micro LED TVs. Samsung brings a brand new TV technology to its flagship 8K and 4K models – Neo QLED. The core is to adopt the new quantum Mini LED light source technology, quantum matrix technology and Neo quantum processor. In addition, Samsung W21 also uses 5G technology.
Steve Koenig, vice president of research at the Consumer Technology Association, said in an interview with CNET senior reporter Sarah Tibucon: “5G is going to be there no matter where you are in the online showroom.” He said, “Eventually, 5G will connect everything.”
Also like last year, there won’t be many 5G phones outside of Samsung’s offerings. CES has never been a phone-centric show.
Of course, the setting for this exhibition is very different from last year.
First, millions more have 5G devices thanks to a glut of phones launched over the past 12 months, including Apple’s iPhone 12 lineup, and cheaper options like TCL’s 5G UW for Verizon.
Analyst Carolina Milanesi said that in addition to mobile phones, 5G-connected computers may also appear.
“From a product advocacy standpoint, it’s mainstream,” analyst Maribel Lopez said.
5G networks are also more mature, with all three major U.S. operators providing nationwide 5G networks.
Weisberg, a keynote speaker at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show and last seen last November when he pitched his 5G network with the iPhone 12 with Apple CEO Tim Cook, is likely to be in The momentum was fueled by the virtual stage at the Consumer Electronics Show.
According to CNET editor Eli Blumenthal, 5G could cause upheaval in the reputation and standing of different telecom operators.
While Verizon is expanding its nationwide coverage with a short-range but blazing-fast network, T-Mobile has been rolling out a network that uses spectrum that combines range and speed, potentially giving it the most access to the three major carriers. Good 5G experience.
Both T-Mobile and AT&T have also deployed this fast, short-range network, called millimeter wave, but on a smaller scale than Verizon.
AT&T and T-Mobile largely stayed out of 5G at this CES, giving Verizon a full stage.
But that doesn’t mean there won’t be a lot of talk about 5G at the show. CNET will hold a symposium to discuss the use of 5G to solve some of the problems exposed by the new crown pneumonia. Online medical care and online learning will become hot topics.
