Sony's CES 2017 Press Conference Scheduled For January 4th

Sony CES 2017 event announcement 1

Sony is a very well-known company, even to people who are not exactly tech-savvy. This company manufactures all sorts of tech hardware (and software), ranging from TVs and gaming consoles, all the way to smartphones and smartwatches. As many of you know, the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is right around the corner, it is coming up in early January, which is less than a month away. A couple of companies already confirmed their participation at CES 2017, and it seems like Sony will be joining them, read on.

This Japan-based tech giant has just confirmed that they’ll make an appearance at CES 2017, and their press conference will be held on January 4th at 5PM PST (local time). The conference will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, in case you were wondering. Now, Sony’s participation at CES is not exactly a surprise, pretty much every tech large tech company will be there, but what will they announce? Well, Sony did not introduce new smartphones at CES for a few years now, so we’re not really expecting to see any new smartphone hardware, chances are Sony will wait for the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in order to announce new smartphones. The company could, however, introduce some new wearables during the show, at least one. The company’s smartwatch series is due to a refresh, and the Sony Smartwatch 4 could be in the cards for CES 2017.

Other than the Sony Smartwatch 4, we really don’t think Sony will make any huge announcements during the conference, it is possible that they will introduce a new pair of earphones or headphones, but we’re not expecting any high-profile announcements, though we could be wrong, of course. The Sony Smartwatch 3 was introduced back at IFA 2014, so it has been over two years since Sony introduced a smartwatch. If the company opts to announce the Sony Smartwatch 4, you can expect it to ship with Android Wear OS, just like its predecessor, though we still don’t know what will it look like, as no leaks or rumors have appeared, at least not recently. That is more or less it, stay tuned for additional info, we’ll let you know if something pops up.
