CES 2019 has managed to raise a few eyebrows since Lenovo decided to announce their new line-up of laptops as well as monitors such as the ThinkPad X1 Yoga 4th Gen and Legion
Y44w ultra-wide monitor.
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga 4th Gen has an all-aluminum chassis which is a design choice that will enable the device to be a lot lighter than its predecessors. Customers will also be able to choose between three variants which all have different display options; a Full HD, a 4K HDR, and a WQHD.
The specs of the X1 will be somewhere around 16gigs of RAM powered by the latest Intel 8th generation i processors. It will also boast a storage capacity of 2TBs.
The Legion Y44w ultra-wide also has a variant which is focused more on for business purposes where the ultra-wide option is made for gamers. That is ultimately where the differences end since both of them are built with remarkably same specification with additional DisplayHDR 400 VESA support.
2. HTC VR
HTC was back with a bang, announcing not one but two VR headsets. The first one, the Vive Pro Eye, is built with eye tracking which will make it easier for users who previously experienced discomfort when they wore the headset for prolonged periods of time.
The technology will enable precision and accessibility which we previously haven’t seen before. Although the exact specifications of the VR headset haven’t been announced, HTC have officially revealed that the GPU, as well as the CPU usage, will be highly efficient.
While the Vive Pro Eye is focused on developing the existing technology, the Vive Cosmos,
on the other hand, is looking to bring in the next generation of VR Headsets where almost all the issues that were previously addressed will be fixed in this one.
Viveport, a marketplace for over 500 apps as well as games, was also announced by HTC and the service will officially launch on April 5th of this year.
Another exciting development is that HTC has confirmed that they are working with both Amazon as well as Firefox in order to create a full VR web browsing experience.
