- The annual Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, kicks off in Las Vegas on January 8, 2019.
- Business Insider will be attending this year's showcase to see all of the latest cutting-edge technologies from companies around the world.
- We've rounded up all of the major tech we're expecting to see at CES 2019.
Artificial intelligence, everywhere
Artificial intelligence is the next big wave for tech. The biggest companies in the world — Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and others — have already invested millions of dollars into creating robust systems that can solve complex problems, and in 2019, we'll see smaller players introduce even more "smart" gadgets. At CES, expect to see AI powering gadgets you would and wouldn't expect, everything from TVs to security cameras to even golf equipment.
5G is finally coming in 2019, and we'll learn what that means exactly
People have been talking about 5G as the successor to 4G LTE for years now. But in 2019, most carriers around the globe will be piloting 5G programs of their own, so at CES, many of those companies will be emphasizing the capabilities and potential impact of 5G.
Much of what 5G promises relates to speed, like being able to stream videos instantly with no buffering or lag, or download large files in seconds. But at CES 2019, most of the major carriers have either speakers or panelists at the show (including CEOs from Verizon and AT&T), so expect to hear more specific rollout plans and hopefully some more futuristic applications.
Bigger, better, and wilder displays
Every year at CES, display makers like Samsung and LG one-up each other with bigger and wilder new screen technologies.
Over the years, we've seen 4K and 8K televisions in all shapes and sizes. Last year, Samsung unveiled a 146-inch TV called "The Wall." LG, for its part, unveiled a display that can roll up like a poster — and LG plans to actually sell it! We're expecting these two rival companies, and plenty of others, to push the envelope of display technologies at CES 2019.
