Coolest New Gadgets from CES 2019 Your Can Buy

While you have to wait for a lot of these gadgets, some are already available.

The 2019 CES (International Consumer Electronics Show) held in Las Vegas was an epic gathering. It stretched the boundaries of innovation with top tech companies displaying ingenious gadgets with technology that will modify our quality of life.

However, although most of the innovative gadgets presented at the convention will trigger buyer impulses at first sight, consumers may have to wait a while before they’ve actually become available. Some stunning prototypes displayed at the conference likely won’t make it to the market any time soon, while some others may never even make it.

That aside, there are a number of eye-popping gadgets hitting stores this year. So if you’re keen on upgrading your gadgets, or in the mood for new technology, or just window shopping (and why wouldn’t you?), we’re here to help. Here’s a rundown of some of the state-of-the-art gadgets on display at the 2019 CES that are already shipping.

5 of the coolest gadgets from the 2019 CES that are currently shipping out

#1 The best phone that wasn’t there: Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup

We start off the list with the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup. Contrary to expectations, Samsung’s flagship smartphone wasn’t part of the event, but it’s component manufacturers were. From 7nm chipsets to 5G technology, the 2019 CES featured a lot of what the S10 smartphones will be powered by.

The S10e, S10, and S10+ were released earlier this month (March), while the S10 5G will drop later in the year
Samsung also didn’t shy away from guaranteeing a release of a 5G-powered device this year, and later news after the 2019 CES has confirmed this. In fact, some versions of the Galaxy S10 — S10, S10+ and S10e — are available now. However, we still await the anticipated Galaxy S10 5G later this year, the only version of the S10 with 5G capabilities.

2 The Best PC: Huawei Matebook 13

An ultra-thin, light laptop is giving Apple’s MacBook Air a run for its money. The Matebook 13 is an intermediary between the budget Matebook D and the high-end Matebook X. The laptop sports a brilliant aluminum alloy casing and a metal finish. Here are some features:

  • Thin-bezel and a 13-inch display;
  • Powerful Intel Whiskey Lake Processor;
  • 256GB SSD processor; and
  • 8GB RAM.

#3 The best headset: Sony WH-1000XM3

The WH-1000XM2 hit the ground running in 2018 as the best noise-canceling headphone in the world. The upgraded version, the WH-1000XM3, is poised to keep that impressive momentum going this year.

It comes with moderate feature enhancements that improve on the best features the previous version had to offer. These upgrades include the new USB-C charging standard that replaces the classic microUSB connection, and a bit more padding around the bridge to enhance its nogging comfort.

#4 The best memory card: Lexar 1TB 633x SDXC UHS-I memory card

This is by far the best memory card option for technology buffs that frequently run into the need for more storage space. The new 1TB card is the latest and most impressive member of Lexar’s 633x range, which includes 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB models.

#5 The best bedside personal assistant device: Lenovo Smart Clock with Google Assistant

Bedside personal assistants are neither new nor news. But the Lenovo Smart Clock takes it all to a whole new level without bringing along any bogus functions such as video conference or live streaming.

The Lenovo Smart Clock is integrated with Google Assistance to provide bedside functionalities and a whole lot more
The Lenovo Smart Clock is a sleek, handy gadget that offers all the bedside basics, including an audible clock, a phone charger, as well as a clock face that brightens incrementally before the alarm goes off. But it’s most ingenious feature is its integration with Google Assistant that allows you to program it to do a whole lot more. It’s currently priced at $79.99.
