Unless you’ve lived under a rock or just been really busy, you might have noticed that CES 2022 kicked off this week. While the event technically started today, we saw various announcements throughout the week. As is the case with every major event like this, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite announcements and provided the title of “Phandroid’s Best of CES 2022”. Let us know what you think in the comments and if another ad blew you away!
Razer Blade 15
Razer has completely revamped its entire Blade laptop lineup, but the Blade 15 is the “sweet spot” option of the trio. Indeed, you will enjoy a larger screen compared to the 14-inch model, as well as configurable RAM and two Thunderbolt 4 ports. There is even a configuration that offers full QHD resolution with a refresh rate of 240. Hz, which is pretty amazing whether you’re gaming or working. The new Razer Blade series will launch later this month.
OnePlus 10 Pro
Much like OnePlus, the company has chosen to release information about its 2022 flagship, the OnePlus 10 Pro. There aren’t many surprises when you look at the spec sheet as the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and sport Android 12 out of the box. But a redesigned camera module, along with the sleek matte green finish and 80W charging speeds definitely piqued our interest. The phone will first launch in China, but is expected to land in other regions in the coming months.
Withings body scan
Since many of us start New Years Resolutions, it makes sense that those trying to keep track of our health would be intrigued by the Withings Body Scan. While Withings has to wait to release it due to a need for approval, it is perhaps the most feature-rich smart scale we’ve ever seen.
Samsung Eco remote control
Being able to charge your wireless accessories is something we tend to take for granted, but Samsung takes it a step further. With the new Samsung Eco remote, not only will you not have to worry about replacing the batteries, the remote will charge itself using radio frequencies, as well as the sun. Samsung specifies that the remote will be powered by different devices in your home that transmit radio waves, keeping your remote charged all the time.
