The CES 2023 event officially ran from 5th – 8th January 2023 in the fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. Most of the announcements took place on the the press, analyst and media days on the 4th and 5th. Here at 4heron we’ve bided our time to be able to bring you a summary of the brands we know and love, what’s hot, what’s not and what’s just plain crazy!

CES is an industry specific event which isn’t open to the public. The CTA reported that CES 2023 saw over 115,000 industry attendees, with over 3,000 companies exhibiting.

CES is quite often the first choice for tech companies to show off their products for the coming year – as well as showing off future technologies (well, unless you’re Apple!). While it’s dominated by big brands, it’s also an opportunity for smaller companies to showcase either great inventions, or products that, quite frankly, will never see the light of day again.

Here’s the A-Z summary of our top news…


Acer updated the Aspire line, the Swift line and made some Predator and Nitro announcements, as well as launching the Halo Swing, a smart speaker designed for the outdoors.


AMD’s president and CEO Lisa Su delivered a keynote presentation at CES to outline the brand’s next-generation 7000-series mobile CPUs.We also saw three new desktop chips that sport AMD’s 3D V-cache technology, with 16 cores on the flagship processor. AMD also launched its RX 7000 mobile GPUs, ideal for 1080p gaming on ultra settings or for content creation uses on top-end gaming laptops.


BMW chairman Oliver Zipse outlined BMW’s vision of the future during the brand’s 2023 keynote. This included a colour-changing concept car called the BMW i Vision Dee and plans to introduce full-windscreen heads-up displays in its cars from 2025.

Lenovo announced the IdeaPad Pro, IdeaPad Slim and the IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook, to get started, but the but hitters are the Lenovo Yobga Book 9i with multiple displays, the Lenovo Tab Extreme which is packed with power and the Lenovo Smart Paper – another E Ink writing device.


LG showed off an almost completely wire-free OLED TV, that streams content from a Zero Connect media box, and only needs a power cable for the TV itself. LG Display revealed its third-generation OLED panel tech, which we can expect to see in future TVs, with an astonishing 2,100 nit peak brightness.

We’ve also seen the InstaView fridge, where you can knock on the door panel to turn it transparent so you can see inside. Along with the LG ArtCool Gallery – an aircon unit with a 27-inch display for artwork or photos.

LG announced new soundbars at the show, and we’ve seen an interesting new camera module from LG Innotek.

The brand has also unveiled new laptops for its popular Gram series, including two all-new models the LG Gram UltraSlim and LG Gram Style.


L’Oreal were a bit of a shock announcement / participant for us as it’s not a name synonymous with tech but nevertheless they used the CES 2023 to show off the Brow Magic, which will print your perfect eyebrows onto your face, as well as the Hapta, a clever device to make lipstick application easier for those who have limited mobility. Two very clever additions to the beauty industry.


Panasonic used its CES press conference to talk about sustainability, whilst also announcing its latest flagship television – the MZ2000. The MZ2000 will come in 55-inch, 65-inch and 77-inch display sizes and it brings with it a number of improvements over its predecessor, including a 150 per cent increase in peak brightness.

It also launched the Lumix S5II, the first Panasonic camera to benefit from phase detect autofocus.


Ring made a move beyond the home with the Ring Car Cam. This puts a camera in your car so you can keep an eye on it. A definite winner to add to your home / remote security portfolio.

Sony was also running its first demos of the PlayStation VR2.


VW used CES 2023 to show off the VW ID.7. This is the first reveal of VW’s next electric car, this time in saloon form, but still based on the MEB platform.

It's promising 434 miles of range on a full charge, but at the moment we don't really know what it looks like, as VW is keeping it under this special colour-changing camouflage.
