Samsung CES 2019 liveblog

It’s not really CES until Samsung takes the stage. The company’s annual keynote is one of the tentpole events for the giant consumer electronics show. Sure, the company keeps its mobile gunpowder dry until the Mobile World Congress moves forward, but CES is the time when the rest of the company’s business can shine.

It’s hard to say for sure what will be on display at today’s event, but if previous years are any indication (and they usually are), the event will focus on PCs, home entertainment, and appliances. You can also be pretty sure we’ll get a little Bixby action at the event, as the company looks to expand the appeal of its smart assistant that runs too.

The rumors have given a glimpse of a handful of other possibilities, including the addition of a smarter version of the Galaxy Home smart speaker – the HomePod competitor that Samsung has yet to release. Other possibilities include wearables and perhaps some content offerings to go along with the latest wave of 8K sets.

The event begins at 2PM PT, 5PM ET.
