Consumer Electronics Show (CES), one of the world's largest technology trade shows, will be held in Las Vegas on January 7 2014. For the past 15 years, it had been a venue for technology companies to unveil their new innovations. This year, we are expecting a lot of smartphones and tablets to be announced on the technology gathering. Here are 10 smart products as predicted by phonearena.com.
LG G2 Mini
Although rumors had been going around about an LG G3, phonearena.com predicts that CES might not be the venue for its unveiling. LG G2 mini, a mid-range cousin of LG G2 is more likely to be unveiled.
The techsite further stated that LG might reveal other products such as LG's smartwatch "G Arch," alongside a health tracking wristband "G Health."
Sony Xperia Z1s
"Sony Xperia Z1s" is not the official name. But rumor has it that Xperia Z1 will be having a smaller, yet no less capable, version.
Sony might also be announcing the entry-level Sony Xperia E2 and a 6-inch phablet with an octa-core SoC. Also watch out for Sony's third smartwatch.
