Samsung

The South Korean giant always secures itself the primary highlight at every CES and history is proof of it.

During CES (2015), Samsung unveiled a never-before-seen concept of bendable TV. The company is now expected to introduce a bendable smartphone. According to Forbes, several rumors claim that Samsung is working on an unidentified smartphone called, “Galaxy X.” It will carry unique features and will be made available for sale almost immediately. One of the main reasons why Samsung chooses to debut the handset so early is so that the company can have an upper hand over its competitors.

Sony

Sony’s primary highlight lies in its audio products. Other times, the Japanese company introduces newer items in its office line. Similarly, Sony is expected to update its Bravia series of TV. The upcoming line-up of Bravia TV will come featuring OLED screens. Apart from this, the company is rumored to debut some high-end speakers.
