Although the world’s largest tech fair won’t officially open until Tuesday, the 2022 CES media day was filled with announcements. Several major companies, including Samsung and Dell, have announced their latest products and services. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S21 FE after a long delay, Alienware debuted its Concept Nyx game streaming server, and used OnePlus CES 2022 to reveal its latest flagship, the OnePlus 10 Pro. This year’s CES officially starts from January 5-7.

Here’s a summary of all the highlights from Monday at CES 2022.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE

Samsung’s first big smartphone of 2022 is not the Galaxy S22 but the Galaxy S21 FE (FE stands for Fan Edition). The long-awaited Galaxy S21 FE is a stripped-down version of the flagship Galaxy S21 with a few trade-offs. The ‘affordable’ flagship features a 6.4-inch 120Hz display, Snapdragon 888 chipset, and a lower price tag: $699 for the base 128GB model. The phone will go on sale in select countries next week. The Galaxy S21 FE joins Samsung’s busy smartphone lineup. The question really is: Who is the target audience for the Galaxy S21 FE? The S21 FE is sandwiched between the regular Galaxy S21 and the Galaxy A52.

OnePlus 10 Pro

OnePlus 9 Pro is old. Enter the OnePlus 10 Pro. OnePlus is using the week of CES 2022 to announce its first mega flagship of the year. Although the phone does not have pricing or specifications, the company has shared an image of the device. This is exactly what the rumors suggested. The high-end smartphone is rumored to include a 6.7-inch QHD Plus display with 120Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU, 12GB of RAM, support for 5G networks and a 5,000mAh battery. As for the cameras, the phone is expected to come with a 48-megapixel primary camera to match the 50-megapixel ultra-wide angle and 8-megapixel telephoto resolution. OnePlus 10 Pro will run on a new unified operating system that combines Android’s OxygenOS with Oppo’s ColorOS. OnePlus is planning to release its latest version in China on January 11th.


Alienware Nyx Concept

Dell Alienware brand shows concept hardware at CES, and this year is no different. Concept Nyx joins a long list of concept hardware coming from Dell’s base machine at CES 2022, and is essentially a home server that can stream games throughout the home. The idea behind the product is to allow users to stream multiple games on multiple devices simultaneously, regardless of what devices they are playing on. At the moment, Alienware’s Concept Nyx is only a prototype at the moment and the brand has yet to bring the device to the mass market.

L’Oreal Colorsonic

L’Oréal became an annual name at CES, and 2022 is no different. This time, they’re showing off the Coloronic, a device that looks like a hair straightener, but actually aims to allow you to apply hair color evenly, and without the mess that the process usually involves. Colorsonic will deliver consistent hair color results, the company claims, and the device will be officially launched in 2023.

Coloronic will allow users to choose from over 40 colors, and with just the touch of a button, the device is ready to apply hair color. It has hairbrush-like bristles on top, which provide color, and relies on a color cartridge to mix and create hair color. Based on the video shared by L’Oreals, applying hair color is as easy as brushing your hair. One just has to wash the hair after the procedure and its new color will shine.

We don’t know how much this device will cost when it actually goes on the market, but it might just change how you color hair at home, if it really works as smoothly as in the demo video.

Jabra Elite 4 Active

Jabra used CES 2022 to offer the $119 Elite 4 Active, a set of Active Noise Reduction (ANC) earbuds. They provide a secure and comfortable fit without the need for hooks or wing tips. The earbuds have an IP57 rating, a transparent mode that lets you let in the outside world, and support for both AAC and aptX Bluetooth codecs. Jabra claims seven hours per charge in the earbuds, for a total of 28 hours when you include the charging case. It’s already available in select markets, in dark blue, black and light mint.

Targus Cypress Hero Backpack

Backpack with built in location tracker? Well, Targus makes one and uses Apple’s Find My technology. The $149 Cypress Hero backpack has a built-in location tracker that can help the owner find the bag through the Find My network if it’s lost. And if you lose your iPhone, you can press a button on the backpack to ping your phone. The Cypress Hero comes with a replaceable battery that can be charged via USB. The “smart” bag will be available sometime in Spring/Summer 2022.


Body Scan Withings

The Withings Body Scan scale, the new smart scale the company announced at CES 2022, is even more capable. The body scan will do all the basic things it’s supposed to do, but it will take readings from 6 ECGs each time you weigh. It has 14 electrodes in the base and four more in the retractable handle. In addition, the body scan will now break down your torso, arms and legs and display their special composition in the accompanying app. Withings said it plans to release the body scan meter in the second half of 2022 following FDA clearance. It will cost $299.95.

LG’s ‘media chair’ concept

LG is showing off two new concept devices at CES 2022, one of which is the Media Chair. Primarily designed as a “modern relaxation device”, it features a 55-inch curved OLED screen with a chair to form an entertainment set of sorts. The curved screen vibrates to produce sound without the need for external speakers. The button on the arm of the chair allows the user to switch the OLED panel from the vertical and horizontal directions, allowing users to watch a movie in comfort. An OLED display uses tens of millions of self-emitting pixels.

It has a USB-C port as a backup. The remote control is eco-friendly and uses recycled materials. Samsung plans to ship the remote later this year.
