Samsung’s Next Generation Slide/Fold Screens

“This year’s CES delivered the comeback story we’ve all been waiting for: 100,000 people came back in person for a glimpse into the future of tech, and we were there for it,” said Matt Swider, founder and editor-in-chief of The Shortcut. “As we looked at this year’s ads, the competition was fierce, forcing us to select deals that are truly creating ‘Shortcuts’ with technological advances in their respective categories.”

Best on display: LG M3 OLED TV

“Where LG seemed to put its true innovative side to work was on the impossibly large 97-inch LG M3 OLED TV. Its commanding presence, though, isn’t innovation, it’s the fact that this brash TV works wirelessly. (I mean (Mostly. There’s still a power cord, but it goes through the bracket so you can hide it.) Bye-bye, HDMI.

The LG M3 accomplishes this by putting the innards and ports in a box across the room, up to 30 feet away, and that’s where you’ll put your game console, 4K Blu-ray player, and all your other stuff. electronics devices. -a-brac. The box then transmits it to the TV via WiFi, or something very close to it. Everyone who has seen it seems to have been deeply impressed, including us!” – Wes Davis

Best Car: BMW i Vision Dee

“BMW’s i Vision Dee combines color-changing iX Flow E ink paint technology with the i Vision Circular concept we’ve seen before. to reality. It’s fitting that the automaker put Herbie on stage tonight, as the rhythmic auto paint jobs and flashing front grill couldn’t have reminded me more of little Love Bug.” -Gabe Carey

Best AR/VR: Sony PlayStation VR 2

“Sony’s PlayStation VR 2 headset renewed my hope for virtual reality. It looks and feels good, and the specs boast something some of Sony’s competitors don’t: eye tracking on a 4K screen at a reasonable price of only $549”. -Matt Swider

Stay tuned for a full Sony PSVR 2 review from The Shortcut next month, where we’ll have an in-depth look at how the first psvr2 games to carry out.

Best Mobile: Razer Edge 5G with Verizon

The Razer Edge is a portable gaming behemoth powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 chipset, giving it allows you to play smoothly all android games and stream Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and other cloud games. I’m especially enamored with the capabilities of Verizon’s Razer Edge 5G, which will make this gaming machine already portable. very Sub 6 compatible laptop with Verizon’s ultra-fast mmWave technology.” – Matt Swider

Best Smart Home and Networking: Asus ROG Rapture GT-BE98

“If there’s a new WiFi standard, Asus is there with something that supports it as soon as possible, and while the Asus ROG Rapture GT-BE98 isn’t the first WiFi 7 gaming router in the world this time… it’s one one of the fastest, and certainly the most ill-tempered”. -Wes Davis

Best Computing: Lenovo YogaBook 9i

“The new Lenovo YogaBook 9i is the dual-screen laptop that wants to be your multi-monitor workstation replacement. The two displays can be stacked on top of each other horizontally or aligned vertically and tilted on their side edge, using the included folio as a stand It was easily the best laptop We saw at CES.” – Wes Davis

Best Game: Razer Blade 18

“Leading the pack is the new Razer Blade 18, which Razer says is the best desktop replacement. It’s an 18.” best gaming laptop competitor that will be packed with the most powerful components on the market, along with a huge screen. The larger chassis also allows for an entirely new cooling solution that allows the Razer Blade 18 to take full advantage of up to an RTX 4090.” – Jackie Thomas

Best component: 13th generation Intel mobile processor

“At CES 2023, Intel launched its 13th-generation mobile lineup, and instead of a staggered rollout, it has chips for every type of laptop on the market, along with a few new desktop SKUs. The highlight, of course, is the new next-generation 13th-gen HX series, which will be behind the best gaming laptops of 2023.” -Jackie Thomas

Best TV: TCL QM8

This 4K QLED TV is a 6-series replacement that has 2,300+ dimming zones and 3,000+ nits of brightness, which earned us our pick for the best tv from CES 2023. The QM8 comes equipped with WiFi 6, still a rarity in TVs, and a built-in subwoofer.” – Wes Davis

Best Monitor: 57-inch Samsung Odyssey Neo G9

The 57-inch version is an incredibly wide 32:9 monitor with a 7680 x 2160 resolution, essentially the top half of an 8K TV. It uses Mini LED Backlighting, so I would expect high contrast and good to excellent HDR performance, hopefully with minimal glare.” -Jackie Thomas

Best Wearable: TCL RayNeo X2

“Thickness TCL RayNeo X2 It might make you look like a near-future Jeff Goldblum, but it might be worth it for all the tech they pack under their weight. Dual high-contrast Micro LED displays with up to 1000 nits of brightness promise to deliver a truly useful AR experience without hindering your style (as long as that style is joyfully quirky).” – Wes Davis

Best Concept: Samsung’s Next-Gen Slide/Fold Screens

“Samsung Display brought magic to CES 2023 with innovative displays that are set to change the way we interact with displays. I was shown prototype OLED smartphone and tablet designs that wowed me and gave me an inside look into the future. The display triple felt like he was one step ahead of me Samsung Galaxy Z Foldable 4, and tablets with multiple slide-out screens that automatically expand show the space right before my eyes. The real standout is the Samsung Flex Hybrid OLED, which combines the benefits of foldable and slider technology in one device.” – Matt Swider
