Best of IFA 2022: all the top tech products – CNN Underscored

September 13, 2022 by No Comments

After a two-year Covid-19 hiatus, IFA 2022, Europe’s answer to CES in the US and the continent’s largest technology show for consumer electronics, was finally back live and in-person — and we were there to take it all in. The event, which takes place every September in Berlin, Germany, ran from Sept. 2 to Sept. 6, and welcomed over 1,100 brands from 46 countries showing off the latest technologies and innovations.

This includes some of the biggest names in the industry, like LG, Samsung, Lenovo, Asus and Huawei, and we took our time to explore over 20 halls filled with everything from kitchen appliances to smart home technology to bendable OLED displays.

It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. And though there were plenty of fascinating products and trends that caught our attention on the IFA 2022 show floor, here are the best ones that should be coming to the US in the near future.

A flat screen may be the perfect vessel for watching TV, but a curved screen can offer a more immersive experience when gaming. Luckily, LG’s newest innovation covers it all.

The Korean giant showed off the futuristic OLED Flex TV, a bendable 42-inch OLED screen that starts out completely flat for watching content, and uses two motorized arms to curve inward in 5% increments. This gives you 20 levels of curve to choose from when you’re gaming, with a maximum curve of 900R.

And because the LX3 was designed with gamers in mind, it also includes Dolby Vision gaming at 4K and a rapid 120Hz refresh rate, as well as built-in support for Dolby Atmos and two front-firing 40W speakers.

Lenovo’s redesigned ThinkPad X1 Fold turns a 16-inch display into a 12-inch laptop and it folded down small enough to fit into my shoulder bag. This is the second-gen X1 Fold, dramatically improving on the foldable laptop that was first introduced at CES in 2020. It has a larger 16.3-inch display, a more streamlined design and updated powerful specs. The 2024 x 2560 OLED display with HDR mode looks eye-poppingly beautiful whether you’re using it as a large tablet, a traditional clamshell laptop or with the optional stand and keyboard as an all-in-one computer.
