Samsung sets the date for CES 2015 event
Tomorrow is December 6. And while that date may not mean a lot on its own, it marks the one month point from the official start of CES 2015, taking place in Las Vegas from January 6 through 9. Smartphone companies have already been getting their PR machines running, announcing plans for their respective CES press events: we heard from Sony a few weeks back, and earlier today we were talking about Xiaomi’s plans. But now it’s time for one of the biggest brands in mobile tech to schedule its own CES event, as Samsung clues us in to its pre-CES press conference.
Samsung’s event will start the week off, with its announcements taking place the afternoon of Monday, January 5. That sort of just-before-the-official-expo-start timing is typical for companies in the industry, always jockeying to make sure their news stands out and avoids getting lost in the sea of similar press releases.
What could we expect from Samsung this time? Well, Galaxy S6 news is almost certainly another month or two (or three) out, and we wouldn’t expect to hear anything much in advance of MWC. Still, there’s the potential for a lot of other products to take the spotlight: it’s been a little while since Samsung introduced new tablets, and while we aren’t expecting any in particular just now, such a launch would make enough sense.
We might also get news about the latest Exynos chips (maybe an early announcement of that custom GPU business), and considering the pace at which Samsung’s been dropping new smartwatches, CES would be just about time for a new crop of wearables to arrive.
