CES 2023: What to expect from the world's largest tech show?
The year is quickly coming to an end, and besides holiday celebrations, there’s one thing we tech heads can look forward to. CES 2023 is right around the corner! The Consumer Electronics Show was still affected by the pandemic last year, but this time around, we expect a much more standard convention, packed with great tech, exciting announcements, and plenty of hands-on time with the latest and greatest gadgets.
CES 2023: Important information
- What is CES? CES stands for Consumer Electronics Show. It’s the largest yearly tech convention in the world. It hosted over 170,000 attendees in 2020, over 4,400 exhibitors, and over 6,500 members of the media.
- When is CES 2023? CES 2023 will take place from Thursday, January 5, through Sunday, January 8, 2023.
- Where is CES 2023 held? CES 2023 will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, primarily at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Separate events, keynotes, and product unveilings happen at various locations around Las Vegas.
- Is CES 2023 open to the public? CES’ physical show floor and events are not available to the public. This convention is exclusive to people affiliated with the consumer tech industry. Last year, CES attendees also needed to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Rules seem to be more relaxed now, as the official website only states “CES encourages all attendees” to get the vaccine and booster shots. Only international travelers are requested proof.
Samsung never really announces its important devices during CES, as it usually waits a bit to launch these closer to MWC. That said, the giant is never absent from any main tech event, and you can be sure we’ll see them at CES. Last year Samsung announced the Galaxy S21 FE at CES; is there a possibility of an S22 FE coming in 2023? We’ll have to wait and see.
Samsung is known for its huge booth, so you can be sure we’ll see plenty of their TVs, appliances, monitors, and other smart technology.
Sony is another company that usually has a massive booth at CES, but it doesn’t often announce much new stuff at this event. We’re often presented with impressive televisions, so we might see some of that. There’s one thing everyone’s hoping to see at CES 2023, though.
Sony’s PlayStation VR 2 is expected to debut in early 2023. While we have no official details yet, there is a chance this could be a CES launch. More information should come as we get near the date.
LG has exited the mobile phone market, but the company is always present and has plenty of other consumer electronics to show off. We’ve heard some murmurs of new TVs coming. And we don’t doubt it; that’s one of the company’s strongest departments. Of course, there should be plenty of other appliances, entertainment, and general electronics at LG’s booth. We’ve heard nothing concrete just yet, though.
Asus is known for highlighting its gaming devices during CES shows, and next year likely won’t be the exception. Expect a plethora of gaming laptops, tablets, monitors, peripherals, and other components. Additionally, we’ll probably see some (but not as many) non-gaming computing products.
AMD might be bringing out the big guns at CES 2023. While not confirmed yet, we’re expected to see the new Ryzen 7000X3D chips in early 2023, and AMD has already announced there will be a CES keynote. It would be a missed opportunity if AMD doesn’t at least mention some details about its next silicon.
We’re not expecting much out of Nvidia at CES 2023, at least in terms of mobile devices and services. We know the new RTX 4060 GPU might be coming during the Las Vegas tech show. Of course, we’ll update you as more details emerge.
What else to look out for?

- Smart Home: While it doesn’t usually catch much attention, the smart home market is essential and very present at CES. Notable brands such as LG and Samsung usually announce their intelligent appliances at CES. We’ve also heard from key players such as Arlo, GE, Google, Honeywell, Sengled, Eufy, Roborock, Razer, Ring, and more.
- Wearables: There’s no lack of wearables presented at CES shows, and 2023 likely won’t be the exception.
- TV: Of course, TVs are always a hot topic at any tech show, including CES. Look out for Sony, Samsung, LG, TCL, Hisense, Panasonic, and more. Check out our post on the best TV and monitor announcements for more details.
