What to expect at CES 2019

Regardless of what actually appears in Vegas, though, it’s clear this once-crazy idea isn’t so outlandish anymore. For those not in the loop, MicroLED screens like Samsung’s pack all the same benefits (like punchy colors and pure blacks) as traditional OLED panels but have better longevity. We expect to see Alexa integration not only in the usual connected displays and speakers but also in televisions, appliances and more. Since our founding in 2004, we’ve grown from an exhaustive source for consumer tech news to a global multimedia organization covering the intersection of technology, gaming and entertainment. Almost certainly not, especially when you consider the near-total lack of valuable 8K media out there. (It doesn’t hurt that intense industry rivalries lead to ever-flashier spectacles.) Amazon will even have its very own car-related exhibit to show off Alexa Auto, an accessory that’ll add the personal assistant to any compatible car.
