Like it or not, even the best of events have to come to an end, which was also the natural faith of CES 2016. It was a reasonably eventful show and while we didn’t get much in terms of new flagships there was plenty of new hardware in Las Vegas.
Below is an extensive table of all the things we spotted at the venue and deemed intriguing and relevant enough to share. As far as handsets go, Huawei brought a few devices to show and we were also lucky enough to be able to play around with each of them and share our first hands-on impressions. These were the Huawei Honor 5X and Mate 8, both not making a first appearance, but still fresh additions to the OEM’s lineup. Then there is the new 10.0-ich MediaPad M2 tablet and two now exclusive shades of the Huawei Watch.
LG didn’t disappoint either with a couple of new mid-range offers. The K7 and K10 might not impress with particularly beefy specs sheets, but they represent the start of a brand new line of LG handsets for the masses. Moving on, there is ZTE with another pair of new models. The ZTE Avid Plus and ZTE Grand X 3 are admittedly underwhelming in the hardware department with their Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chips, but still have some interesting features to offer, like a USB Type-C connector on the latter, all at a really low price point.
Speaking of budget solutions, Alcatel made sure to refresh its lineup for 2016 as well and in keeping with its long-standing market strategy, it made sure to roll out as many new options as it can. You can check out the new Pixi 4 lineup, as well as the OneTouch models for yourselves, but don’t fixate on the enclosed specs too much, as they will surely morph and change as these devices eventually make their way into carrier offers.
