CES 2016: Samsung are one of the biggest tech companies in the world and after a quick walk around their colossal booth at CES 2016, it’s easy to see why.
First up, these stylish Samsung Level U headphones with their hybrid neckband mounting.
As well as a wide range of other headphones, we tested a few out and even in the noisy show floor, they sounded pretty fantastic.
The Gear S2 shown off in all its glory, with a huge range of custom straps, UI’s and more being shown off to demonstrate the watches versatility.
The popular Galaxy Gear was only on show in a few different configurations.
Gear VR, a more budget friendly virtual reality experience which works with the latest Samsung smartphones was also demonstrated. The tech is really cool, although given that it’s powered by Oculus tech, it was bound to be. Personally, I still don’t think it has what it takes to compete with the full fat Oculus or rival offerings such as Vive.
Some fantastic new Notebooks, super light, premium build quality and powerful processors. Nothing really new, just the usually hardware upgrades and price changes.
One of the real stars of the show were the world’s slimmest TV and quantum dot displays. There’s no real way to explain the picture quality, it’s certainly bigger, better and sharper than ever before, but this is crazy money territory and will be for a couple of years yet. Either way, it’s nice to see there’s still advancements being made beyond the current resolution boost.
Of course, if money was no object, you could invest in this monstrosity, just the thing you need for gaming in the living room, right?
