Samsung 77-inch QD OLED (S95C)
We were blown away by Samsung’s first QD-OLED last year and were once again impressed by the updated 2023 model here at CES 2023.
Now available in a larger 77″ model. Samsung’s new QD-OLEDS support a faster 144Hz refresh rate and higher maximum brightness, which should make HDR images even more immersive.

LG Signature OLED M3
The LG Signature OLED M3 is an amazing 4K OLED TV. There are no cables to connect to the back to connect to all your gadgets, Blu-ray players and more. Instead, your devices are connected to an external hub that can be placed up to 10 meters away from your TV.
The LG OLED M3 is available in three different sizes including 97, 83 and 77 inches. Again, there are plenty of game-ready features like a 120Hz refresh rate, Wi-Fi 6, and G-Sync/FreeSync.
The ThinkPhone might be the most fun business phone we’ve seen in a long time.
With many of the classic ThinkPad design cues, including a new interpretation of the red keyboard button, as well as a focus on security, the ThinkPhone has been designed to work well with the ThinkPad laptop range. The same charger, for example, will charge both at full speed, and a new Think 2 Think software feature allows you to use the phone as a webcam.
There’s no shortage of high-end phone features either, with a durable design, large battery, and 120Hz OLED display.

TCL Next Paper 12 Pro
TCL has been experimenting a lot lately and we have been very impressed with the NxtPaper 12 Pro Android tablet.
The unique feature here is the display, which is designed to mimic paper. This makes drawing on the tablet feel much more natural than elsewhere, while the matte finish is easy on the eyes and less prone to glare in bright situations.
Smart notebooks are becoming a tech trend and Lenovo’s Smart Paper is the latest competitor. Similar to the Amazon Kindle Scribe and Remarkable 2, this is an e-ink tablet with week-long battery life that lets you take notes and save
The 10.3-inch monochrome display is responsive and sharp, while the textured glass really makes it look like you’re writing on paper. Lenovo even includes both a pen and a folio case in the package so you can get started right away.
Lenovo Yoga Book 9i
The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is a dual-screen laptop where the two 13-inch OLED screens are connected by a hinge. There is no keyboard built into the laptop, instead an external Bluetooth keyboard is supplied with the device along with a stylus and a versatile stand.

Such a unique form factor allows for a variety of use cases, whether you want a dual-monitor experience or want to use it like a classic clamshell laptop. We think it’s a great alternative to foldable laptops, with a lower price point and fewer software quirks.
Vive XR Elite
Vive has been in the VR space for a long time, but CES 2023 marks the first-ever time it challenges the Meta Quest with an all-in-one headset. It also has a special trick up its sleeve, with a full-color RGB passthrough camera that lets you blend VR creations with the real world.
The headset can be operated independently or even connected to a PC to access more immersive experiences. HTC has also confirmed that the headset will launch the face and eye tracker unit later in 2023, making it one of the most advanced VR headsets we’ve seen to date.
Asus ProArt StudioBook 16 3D OLED
We all thought 3D technology was dead and buried, yet Asus has released a new laptop with autostereoscopic 3D technology that doesn’t require 3D glasses to work. This means objects on the screen appear as if they are projected off the display, making it easier for developers to view a 3D creation from multiple angles.
This isn’t the first 3D laptop we’ve seen in recent months, but it’s the first to combine 3D with an OLED panel. This ensures you get top-notch image quality and super-accurate color, essential for professional creators. Asus has also packed in powerful components like an RTX 4070 GPU to ensure you get super-fast performance.
Razer Blade 18
The Razer Blade 18 is the company’s first laptop with an 18-inch display. Razer didn’t have to significantly increase the overall size of the laptop to fit this display, instead shaving off the bezel to accommodate the largest panel.

The massive laptop also benefits from the cutting-edge components recently announced by Intel and Nvidia, ensuring this will be one of the most powerful laptops of 2023. It’s just a shame that the Blade 18 does without a 4K resolution OLED or mini-LED display.
Panasonic makes some of the best OLED TVs and unveiled the MZ2000 at CES 2023. Color accuracy is key here, with an improved Filmmaker mode and Hollywood tuning both contributing to the fantastic HDR image this set is capable of producing.
Another new feature is Micro Lens Array (MLA) technology, which should allow for brighter images, which has often been a problem with OLED devices before.
Razer Leviathan V2 Pro
The Razer Leviathan V2 Pro may superficially look like a standard soundbar with a subwoofer, but it’s actually the world’s first beamforming soundbar with head-tracking AI. This means the soundbar can offer a similar experience to a sound setup, with 3D audio enhancing immersion. This technology comes from Audioscenic, a company that previously demonstrated it at CES.
The soundbar uses an IR sensor to detect the position of your head before sending audio in different directions to your head using beamforming technology. This means you can hear the direction of approaching enemy footsteps, just like when you’re wearing a headset.
LG Gram style
The LG Gram series has wowed fans with its lightweight laptop designs for years, but they could be faulted for looking a bit generic. That changes with the new LG Gram Style, because LG has a classy glass design, an iridescent finish and a trackpad that can disappear from view.
LG has also built in some additional exciting features such as B. 13th generation Intel Core processors and OLED screens. This is an exciting development for the LG range and we can’t wait to put this new model to the test.
Lenovo Tab Extreme
The Lenovo Tab Extreme could be the closest thing to an iPad Pro running Android this year.
Features include a rich 14.5-inch OLED display with crisp resolution and Dolby Vision HDR, as well as a DisplayPort input for connecting external devices. There’s a Magic Keyboard-inspired folio that raises the tablet to a comfortable height for typing and also supports a stylus.

Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti
The Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti is the latest graphics card in the company’s new RTX 4000 lineup and offers even more performance than an RTX 3090 Ti. This is thanks to improvements in the new Ada Lovelace architecture as well as performance boosts via DLSS 3.0 software .
At $799, it’s currently the cheapest graphics card in the RTX 4000 line, although we expect that to change after the inevitable launch of the RTX 4060 later in 2023. But if you want to play games in 4K with features like ray tracing and DLSS 3.0 this seems like an exciting option.
Victrola Stream Carbon
The Victrola Stream Carbon is an affordable, high-performance, wireless-enabled turntable that allows users to stream vinyl directly to a Sonos speaker – without any additional equipment.
This deep Sonos integration has many benefits, including volume control on the player itself and full support for the S2 app.
Sony PlayStation VR2
The Sony PlayStation VR 2 is an upcoming VR headset for the PS5. It features a high-resolution OLED display, eye-tracking technology, and ergonomic controllers that are a massive improvement over the originals.
We were incredibly impressed with the headset during our hands-on demo, with the launch game Horizon Call of the Mountain proving to be one of the most immersive VR experiences we’ve tested to date. This library of games only seems to get better in the future, with Resident Evil Village, No Man’s Sky, Gran Turismo 7, and Beat Saber already confirmed.
Samsung ViewFinity S9
If you’ve had your eye on Apple’s Studio Display but wanted something with a few more ports, the ViewFinity S9 looks like a smart way to go.
Like Apple’s monitor, the S9 has a 5K resolution (still a rarity) and measures 27 inches. Color accuracy is key here, as Samsung claims it supports 99% of the DCI-P3 color gamut that is so important to creative professionals. Calibration can be done via the Smart Things app and a 4K webcam can be attached to the top.
Flip the monitor around and there’s plenty of I/O, including HDMI (you won’t find that on the studio display), USB-C, Thunderbolt 4, and DisplayPort.
Panasonic Lumix S5II
Panasonic used CES 2023 to announce its latest full-frame hybrid mirrorless camera, the brand’s first camera to feature phase-detection autofocus (PDAF). Inside is a 24.2MP 32mm full-frame CMOS sensor capable of recording up to 6K video.
