To prepare you in advance for this year’s virtual show, here’s what to expect at CES 2021.
1. Less noise and more signal will
This year’s virtual CES will feature around 2,000 vendors. For reference, last year’s show in Las Vegas had 4,500. Typically, one of the biggest challenges of CES is the amount of information you have to sort through to find the good stuff. CNET always accepts the mission of filtering key CES products and trends for consumers. The year will be slightly different with less than half of the companies involved. Instead of talking about the vendors showing the 2021 all-digital CES it is likely to be something new and interesting, as they always show as they always do and they already had the hotel booked.

In the health and smart home space, we are going to see high-tech masks, smart air purifiers, more hands-free devices, UV-C lights to kill germs. Certainly, computer makers would lean on one-third of American employees working on pitch devices and accessories from home to make their work easier. And home entertainment vendors will deliver TV, soundbars and streaming devices and services to a public that is still receiving almost all of their entertainment in the living room.
Note that CNET will discuss these issues in our panel,
3. Transparent OLEDs will create buzz
Being more at home with us, binge, TVs were in high demand. This is why we always pay attention to the next upcoming attraction in TV at CES. There is always a giant TV or a rollable TV or another impressive – if gimmicky – new screen technology that becomes CES’s attractive showpiece. This year it is likely to be LG’s transparent OLED screen. These are going from 10% transparent to 40% transparent, opening up new possibilities for a lot of creative use cases. Some of those that LG CES 2021 will show include a smart bed where the OLED screen exits the footboard, a smart subway window where maps and schedules are overlaid on the glass, and a restaurant partition between the booths where you One can see large images of menu items and even a chef can prepare his meal.
4. Largest gadget will take center stage
Automakers are using CES as a platform to talk about what they call the car’s “digitization and electrification” for the past decade. The problem is that it has been talked to by the world’s largest automakers, who make beautiful prototypes, but drag their feet into making real progress. The momentum is gathering around 2021 EVs as a breakout year. Vehicle manufacturers are converting some of the industry’s most iconic brands to EVs, including the Mustang, Ford F-150 and Hummer.A long number of people were made fun of by the auto industry. On Tuesday, January 12, GM CEO Mary Barra will deliver the inaugural keynote address at CES and Chevy has already promised that new EV announcements are coming. Oh, and speaking of big gadgets, John Deere’s AI and robotics-driven tractors are one of this year’s CES Innovation Award winners.
We will talk about this in our panel,.
5. Samsung will loom bigger than before
In a typical year, Samsung is always the 800-pound gorilla of the CES, with the largest booth on the show floor, the most spectacular press event and attention to TV, audio, computers, home appliances and new equipment. Last year. Samsung will continue to make normal waves this year, but it has increased the fire more – volatile for – The same day when the virtual CES show floor opens on Thursday, January 14. Talk about trying to steal the show! In the past, Samsung has stolen this event in time from its rivals near the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (or a week or two before). But with MWC postponed in the middle of the year, Samsung is essentially co-locating CES for 2021, its biggest mobile event of the year.
6. 5G will be big thing again
From Roger Cheng: I know it seems like we say that every year, but a lot of things actually let 5G dominate the conversation on CES, especially since the show is becoming more virtual and panels and The buzzing demo of the gadget is more reliant on discussions. All three US carriers now have nationwide 5G coverage. Every phone manufacturer – including and especially Apple – is on board. Beyond Samsung’s announcement, you are unlikely that the show will feature many 5G devices. The discussion largely revolves around long-term applications of 5G, such as how we tap into 5G to solve some of the problems exposed by coronoviruses. The discussion will use 5G to close the digital divide, as well as improve telemedicine and distance learning and working experiences.
