Sources confirm that the Samsung CES 2016 event will be dedicated to digital cameras, camcorders and camera accessories. Sources also say that Samsung is planning for “a major surprise” for all of us at the event related to its digital camera market. However, do not expect the Galaxy S7 to be unveiled at the event as it is very unlikely.
Sony at CES 2016
Sony will host a press conference at their stand rather than at the hotel where all the other events are held on the 5th and it will be the last major event of the day. Sony has managed to keep any new announcements a well-kept secret so we’ll have to wait till the event to find out.
ZTE at CES 2016

So this was everything major about the CES 2016 to be held in Las Vegas from 6th to 9th January. We’ll be back with more to stay tuned.
