Meanwhile, Sony held its traditional CES booth space with far less demonstration hubs and a wide open circle to announced the PlayStation VR2 and showcase new PS5 console covers.

New mobile phones include the TCL 30 XE 5G coming to T-Mobile and Boost by T-Mobile and the TCL 30 V 5G for Verizon. Both are affordable 5G devices set to be released soon.
HiSense featured an array of 2022 displays, including the U7H series for gaming. The 75-inch U7 Pro showcased a blisteringly fast CS:GO at 144Hz with VRR enabled.
The Samsung booth was one of the busiest at CES to preview new Neo QLED TVs and the cost-reduced Galaxy S21 FE. The Galaxy S21 FE was powerful, lightweight and included a great new matte finish on the back.
The Las Vegas Convention Center West Hall showcased new EV tech, including the Chrysler Airflow, an EV concept that claims a driving range of up to 440 miles.
