CES 2017 Wrap Up: January 3rd

CES doesn't officially start until the 5th, but there are still plenty of companies which have begun showing off their tech a couple of days before. LG being one of those companies and one of the most well-known. Although they still have more to share, today they showcased the four new K Series phones for 2017 - the K3, K4, K8, and K10, as well as the Stylo 3 for those who prefer a device with an integrated writing and drawing tool. Aside from phones, LG also unveiled a couple of new TONE series headsets with the TONE Studio and the TONE Free. While the TONE Studio are meant to be more of a personal surround sound wearable, they still sit around the neck like all past TONE series headsets. The TONE Free, however, are LG's first pair of truly wireless earbuds and will take on the likes of Samsung's Gear IconX, although the charging cradle can still be worn around the neck like the other TONE headphones.

LG may be one of the biggest brands to showcase new tech today, but there are plenty of other exciting pieces of technology that got a head start and were shown off before the event starts. Honor, which is a company that is quickly gaining ground outside of its native China, showcased their Honor 6X after having teased a new "epic" phone to be announced at CES. The Honor 6X may seem like just a standard device at first, but its the fact that it offers up a dual camera setup on the back for a $250 price tag that is going to make it a compelling device to keep an eye on.

Qualcomm of course had tech to show off today too, and they're so far the only company to show off their actual flagship hardware. Qualcomm's next-gen top-tier processor, the Snapdragon 835, was officially unveiled today, and following on from Qualcomm's announcement, other companies have announced their own tech to be powered by this new processor. Qualcomm has also stated that they plan to move into the PC market with x86 emulation via the Snapdragon 835. Moving away from mobile devices and the processors that power them, as CES is after all about consumer electronics, companies such as Whirlpool have announced a new 2017 lineup of home appliances with support for Amazon's Alexa software. There is more cool tech to see from CES so far, and if you're interested you can find the links to all of it below.
