LG’s Hub Robot to Take on Amazon Echo, Google Home Personal Assistants at CES 2017

LG has announced that the company will be showcasing its advanced robot technologies at CES 2017, including one that looks set to take on Amazon’s Echo and Google’s Home. The company says that its robotic lineup will be able to navigate complex environments and find out the most efficient route to complete the tasks allocated to them by making use of powerful analytical processing capabilities. Also unveiled ahead of CES were new UHD televisions with the company’s Nano Cell LCD tech.

LG's Hub Robot to Take on Amazon Echo, Google Home Personal Assistants at CES 2017The company’s robot collection will be unveiled on Wednesday at CES and includes the Hub Robot, which will work both as a smart home gateway and a personal assistant for the users, the company said in its release. This sounds a lot like the Amazon Echo speaker powered by the Alexa voice-based virtual assistant, and Google Home speaker powered by the Google Assistant.

Another robot from LG’s lineup will demonstrate use in gardening while other models that will be on display have been designed for “commercial use in public spaces such as airports and hotels to help improve the traveller’s experience,” the company said in the release.
Ahead of its CES 2017 event, the company has also announced its Super UHD lineup of LCD TVs featuring Nano Cell technology, which helps them produce more accurate colours than other television sets, as per company’s claims. All three new models from the lineup, namely SJ9500, SJ8500, and SJ8000, feature Active HDR with Dolby Vision that allows support for multiple HDR formats.

The new smart TV models from Super UHD lineup run on LG’s webOS platform and come with a thin and “aesthetically pleasing” design, the company said in its release. The company says that the newly launched TV models have powerful audio capabilities. The use of Nano Cell technology is said to reduces the on-screen light glow to maintain picture quality even when these TVs are surrounded by intense ambient lighting.

“Nano Cell LCD displays offer a technological advantage by employing uniformly-sized particles approximately one nanometre in diameter to create more subtle, accurate colours that can be viewed from wider angles than other TVs,” LG said regarding the Nano Cell technology used in the TVs. LG says that the absorption of surplus light wavelengths allows Nano Cell tech to distinguish between colours with precision.

The company further claims that the use of the Nano Cell LCD technology dramatically reduces instances of colour fading, image instability and other colour degradation issues.
LG partnered with legendary motion picture technology firm – Technicolor – to work on the colour technologies used by the new TVs in order to try and accurately recreate the “artistic intent of content creators,” the company said.

“Our 2017 SUPER UHD TV lineup with LG’s proprietary Nano Cell technology is a breakthrough in display technology that advances the LCD TV viewing experience to a level unlike any other,” Brian Kwon, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company, was quoted as saying in the release.

Apart from the new TV models, LG has also announced that it will be unveiling a new generation of its CordZero premium vacuum cleaners. In its press release, the company said that the use of its Aero Science vacuum technology and improved CordZero Handstick and CordZero Canister will help users experience a “new level of cleaning.”

The company claims that the use of Smart Inverter Motor, which at 115,000 RPM is said to spin 16 times faster than an aeroplane engine, provides the new CordZero Handstick with top class sunction power.

In the weeks leading up to CES 2017, LG already unveiled several products that the company will be showcasing at the Las Vegas trade show. These products include company’s ProBeam laser projector, LG K-Series smartphones, its PJ9 Levitating Bluetooth speaker, Tone Studio and Tone Free wireless audio products, and deep learning-based home appliances.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Tipped to Come With Windows 10-Like Continuum Feature

After the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, Samsung will look to bring back some of its lost goodwill back with the Galaxy S8. There have been several rumours on all things new coming with the Samsung Galaxy S8, and a fresh leak hints that the popular Continuum feature seen on Windows 10 Mobile devices could make its way to the Samsung Galaxy S8 as well.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Tipped to Come With Windows 10-Like Continuum FeatureAll About Windows Phone reports that Samsung is working on a Continuum-like feature, and looks to introduce it on the Galaxy S8. This means that you could use your smartphone on your PC by connecting the device to the monitor, and the keyboard and mouse via Bluetooth (presumably). The leaked image also shows multi-window support, and the feature is being called the Samsung Desktop Experience. We, of course, recommend you to take this leak with a pinch of salt.

The smartphone has been tipped to come in two display sizes – 5-inch and 6-inch. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is also expected to sport a pressure sensitive display, and let go of all physical buttons. The fingerprint scanner could go to the back of the smartphone, although there is also a possibility of an optical fingerprint scanner as well.

As is the tradition, Samsung could bring Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895-based variants in different countries, depending on the market condition. Both Samsung Galaxy S8 processor variants are said to employ Mali-G71 GPU clocked at 550MHz, and support LPDDR4 RAM, UFS 2.1 storage, 4K screens, and Cat.16 LTE. The device is expected to not launch before April, and could be a slightly higher priced than the Galaxy S7.
