Samsung usually shows off many technologies at any event as well as CES 2020. It means Samsung knows how to make its presence felt at trade shows to reveal what mostly is expected to present and a few surprises. The Korean tech giant did make its stage awesome and impressive to watch, however, there were a few to catch up and we're going to wrap them up for you here.
Bezel-less 8K TV at its best
Bezel-less might be the work of Samsung that it's always featured almost all devices from Samsung, and here's about its ultimate slim design with a 99 percent screen-to-body ratio. Samsung Q950 is such TV announced at CES 2020. Samsung might want to make its 8K TV lineups to be a mainstream TV product rather than 4K in 2020.
Never-seen verticle TV
The question is: will everyone want a verticle TV? The vertical TV seems to sound really weird while the videos are always in landscape mode rather than portrait mode which we normally found in the video shooting by a smartphone vertically. Sure, no one will watch a movie vertically. Even though, Samsung demos its verticle TV in case you rotate your smartphone from horizontal to vertical view.
This TV is called Samsung Sero. It's Sero, but not Zero. The Samsung Sero TV is equipped with an integrated, non-removable stand which gives it enough clearance not to hit the floor when rotating to vertical mode. As we've seen in the demo, Samsung Galaxy owners can start mirroring a screen from their mobile device by tapping it against the frame of the Sero. And it even supports AirPlay 2, so owners of iPhones can also transfer their vertical videos to the TV.
The idea of verticle TV is another way to catch everyone's eyes but is it practical or a must-have TV? It can be a catchy headline, but nobody is going to cry and roll on the floor to get it to hands. Even though, let's see together whether or not we proved it wrong.
Ballie is a thing rolling on stage
Everyone wants to get into it in the future, while AI is one of the tools to be there. AI always has its impressiveness and shows itself in most headlines until now. Due to the ecosystems of AI devices, the future is smarter and more efficient, although it's been for a few years now. 2020 is also another year to continue its journey. Instead of revealing a humanoid robot, Samsung made a debut of Ballie, a rolling robot personal companion.
Ballie can understand you, support you, and reacts to your needs to be an active assistant around your home, or at least it follows you around your home with a camera, albeit always cleverly keeping its distance.
Artificial human beings
It's another thing to sound like we're in sci-fi movies again. We're actually not in sci-fi, but Samsung unleashed its creative ideas to bring us a Project Neon. Previously, this project has been a hot topic that everyone talked about how Samsung creates a human being in virtuality. Samsung finally, at CES 2020, undoubtedly shows off what actually is Neon to destroy the messy talks. Well, Neon is not an assistant we've usually seen in AI technology. The Neon is actually a computationally-created virtual being. It shows a real human that is capable of showing intelligence and emotion, even looks and behaves like a real human.
Cooking by a robot hand
Samsung takes you to a kitchen and shows you who is cooking the meal for you, and it's a robot. At this point, Samsung is trying to let you know that the company is considering bringing you a kitchen partner. Samsung has not just brought you a Bot Chef, but also others to show the evolution of the modern culinary journey where the appliances can be your assistant and help you in your home.
5G is one of the headline topics since last year and it continues its legacy before 6G's availability. Samsung didn't leave 5G at a corner and showed off this technology that integrated into a vehicle. Samsung showed how the convergence of 5G, edge computing, and AI would change the experience of urban transportation with 5G technology allowing vehicle-to-everything connectivity that will link cars seamlessly to the rest of the city.
