One of the key rea­sons all eyes are on CES 2020 in Jan­u­ary each year is smart­phones. Despite the fact that many man­u­fac­tur­ers launch their own events, this plat­form allows us to present new prod­ucts, con­cepts and achieve­ments to the world, which are not nec­es­sar­i­ly on sale soon, but def­i­nite­ly give us an idea of ​​the indus­try’s tra­jec­to­ry and fash­ion trends.

Today we will look at the smart­phones that were pre­sent­ed at the exhi­bi­tion.

One Plus Concept One

The name itself clear­ly makes it clear that the smart­phone is still at the con­cept stage, One­Plus’ vision of what the smart­phone of the future will be like. Plus, it’s the prod­uct of a part­ner­ship with McLaren. Thanks to this, Con­cept One received not only design ele­ments rem­i­nis­cent of cars from a well-known man­u­fac­tur­er, but also some tech­no­log­i­cal fea­tures. For exam­ple, elec­trochromic tech­nol­o­gy, which allows glass to pro­tect car occu­pants, is being used to adjust the trans­paren­cy of glass that obscures smart­phone cam­eras. This cre­ates the effect of hav­ing no cam­eras on the back until you launch the app and the effect is pure­ly for the visu­al result. The alu­minum body of the Con­cept One also has a lay­er of gold plat­ing. Again, as a design ele­ment. Oth­er­wise, the smart­phone is iden­ti­cal to the cur­rent flag­ship One­Plus 7T Pro. Despite all the inter­est­ing solu­tions, Con­cept One will not go on sale, but the dis­ap­pear­ing cam­era tech­nol­o­gy itself may very well appear on future One­Plus mod­els.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite and Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite

The Lite series of smart­phones from Sam­sung was announced the day before the exhi­bi­tion, and direct­ly on it, users had the chance to imme­di­ate­ly get to know the devices bet­ter. They have a lot in com­mon, and no less dif­fer­ences.

Among the sim­i­lar­i­ties, we can dis­tin­guish a Full HD + dis­play with a diag­o­nal of 6.7 inch­es, so the smart­phones are quite large. The bat­tery is also the same for the two mod­els, 4500mAh with 25W charg­ing and Android 10. As for the mem­o­ry options, here, as always, you can choose between 6/8GB of RAM and 128GB of inter­nal mem­o­ry. In gen­er­al, this is all that I would like to get from a mod­ern smart­phone, even if we are talk­ing about its bud­get ver­sion. But this is not all that Sam­sung smart­phones offer us.

S10 Lite received a triple cam­era (48MP, 12MP and 5MP), and Note 10 Lite — three 12MP cam­eras. But this does not mean that he has noth­ing to sur­prise the fan with. For exam­ple, in addi­tion to the sty­lus, it is equipped with a head­phone jack. So, if you’ve been wor­ried about Sam­sung smart­phones no longer sup­port­ing wired head­phones, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite fix­es that.

CoolPad Legacy 5G

Smart­phones with 5G sup­port could not fail to appear at CES 2020, despite the fact that in some coun­tries this com­mu­ni­ca­tion for­mat is in no hur­ry to intro­duce this com­mu­ni­ca­tion for­mat, man­u­fac­tur­ers are going out of their way to show that they are ready to pro­vide devices with this capa­bil­i­ty as soon as required. One piece of evi­dence is the Cool­Pad Lega­cy. Bud­get smart­phone with a Full HD dis­play with a diag­o­nal of 6.53 inch­es. 4000mAh bat­tery, 48MP and 8MP dual main cam­era and 16MP self­ie cam­era. A very sim­ple smart­phone, aimed at sup­port­ing the new for­mat and not try­ing to show any­thing inno­v­a­tive. Still, it is worth not­ing that the design is very attrac­tive and there is no rea­son to dis­count the Lega­cy 5G.

TCL intro­duced sev­er­al devices at once, its TCL 10 series mod­el line. The TCL 10 5G stands out the most for obvi­ous rea­sons — sup­port for 5G for­mat, along with 3G, 4G and VolTE. In addi­tion to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of inter­nal mem­o­ry, the device offers an Android 10 oper­at­ing sys­tem and a Qual­comm Snap­drag­on 765 proces­sor. But the rest of the indi­ca­tors are very mod­est, USB‑C for fast charg­ing, a 6.39-inch LCD dis­play, a head­phone jack and a 64MP main cam­era with three addi­tion­al sen­sors. Many imme­di­ate­ly not­ed that the flag­ship smart­phone of the line looks unfin­ished, but if you think about it, the com­pa­ny does not seek to grab stars from the sky, and in its cat­e­go­ry, both price and func­tion­al­i­ty, it is quite capa­ble of tak­ing its well-deserved place some­where in the mid­dle of the list.

The TCL 10 Pro is a slight­ly more pol­ished ver­sion of the smart­phone with a 64MP cam­era (con­sist­ing also of four sen­sors), a Qual­comm Snap­drag­on 765G, a glass body and an OLED dis­play. TCL 10L and TCL Fold­able were also announced, which are still under devel­op­ment.

And yet, let’s pay a lit­tle more atten­tion to TCL Fold­able. This smart­phone large­ly repeats the path of its pre­de­ces­sors, using sim­i­lar tech­nolo­gies. True, it works on the aver­age Qual­comm Snap­drag­on 660 proces­sor and inside every­thing is built on ver­sion 9 of Android. But all this togeth­er car­ries a rather impor­tant mes­sage — a fold­ing smart­phone does not have to be expen­sive. So, TCL presents a fash­ion­able design option at a price that is acces­si­ble to a much larg­er num­ber of users. While the Galaxy Fold with all its flaws costs about $2000. TCL, on the oth­er hand, focus­es on afford­abil­i­ty as well as qual­i­ty. And as a result, it seems to be hint­ing to col­leagues that com­pe­ti­tion is fore­seen, it is not known how soon, but it is fore­seen. And they will have to com­pro­mise.

Oth­er­wise, TCL once again con­firmed that noth­ing rev­o­lu­tion­ary new can be expect­ed from them, but when this or that tech­nol­o­gy is worked out by the rest, the com­pa­ny will be hap­py to find a way to make it more acces­si­ble. Nobody expect­ed more from them.

Since this com­pa­ny is also now owned by TCL, it also came to the exhi­bi­tion with new prod­ucts, which, frankly, were quite a few.

The first is the Alca­tel 3L, a smart­phone with a triple cam­era: 48MP, 5MP wide-angle and 2MP macro. The cam­era, by the way, is the key para­me­ter of this device. Work has been done on every aspect — pho­to qual­i­ty, low light results, etc. The self­ie cam­era is quite rus­tic, its res­o­lu­tion is only 8 megapix­els, which is very small by mod­ern stan­dards.

But the smart­phone has a 6.2‑inch HD + dis­play, LCD and not AMOLED, but with an aspect ratio of 19:9. 4/64GB is also a lit­tle out­dat­ed, but the com­pa­ny promis­es a whole day of work. Well, inside every­thing is built around the Medi­aTek Helio P22 proces­sor. As a result, Alca­tel 3L is a bal­ance between price and fea­tures, which puts a seri­ous empha­sis on price.

It is imme­di­ate­ly clear that the main task of this device is to become a wor­thy alter­na­tive to Xiao­mi smart­phones, which have almost com­plete­ly occu­pied the bud­get niche.

The Alca­tel 1S also offers mod­est spec­i­fi­ca­tions, from which it is dif­fi­cult to sin­gle out any­thing out­stand­ing. It’s the same dis­play and also, three cam­eras. Only their res­o­lu­tion is much less: 13Mp + 5Mp + 2Mp. The last sen­sor is designed for macro pho­tog­ra­phy, but the mid­dle one, 5MP, is for por­traits. So it’s hard to say that this cam­era will be a good choice for mobile pho­tog­ra­phers. But it is not she who is the main attrac­tive fac­tor in the smart­phone. Smart­phone Alca­tel 1S offers rel­a­tive­ly mod­ern func­tion­al­i­ty, but gives a capa­cious 4000mAh bat­tery. And the price announced at the exhi­bi­tion is $110 and it just makes you think that the device can become a uni­ver­sal option.

Other models were also introduced, such as the Alcatel 1V and 1B.

Alca­tel 1V is sim­i­lar to 1S in many ways. The key dif­fer­ence is the dual cam­era and plas­tic body. Among the inno­va­tions, how­ev­er, there is a but­ton for quick access to the Google Assis­tant. The price is also of imme­di­ate inter­est, only $88. A smart­phone can be suit­able even for chil­dren.

The lat­est smart­phone pre­sent­ed by Alca­tel at CES 2020 received a rather inter­est­ing solu­tion in the form of Android 10 (Go ver­sion). Of course, it does not dif­fer in pow­er. Yes, and it would be dif­fi­cult to rely on this despite the fact that the proces­sor is quad-core, RAM is only 2GB, and the screen size is 5.5 inch­es. Sur­pris­ing­ly, we almost com­plete­ly left such indi­ca­tors about five years ago. This smart­phone also has a Google Assis­tant but­ton, as well as an afford­able price.

If oth­er smart­phones seemed inex­pen­sive, then Alca­tel 1B can be called incred­i­bly cheap. For just $66, you can take it home and use it as your main or sec­ond smart­phone.

Alca­tel, fol­low­ing the pol­i­cy of TCL in gen­er­al, did not show any­thing par­tic­u­lar­ly impres­sive, pre­fer­ring to sur­prise with prices. This is not to say that this is bad, on the con­trary, while oth­ers are chas­ing incred­i­ble per­for­mance, some­one has to con­trol the bud­get niche, and Alca­tel takes on this task. At least the com­pa­ny is ready to guar­an­tee the qual­i­ty and reli­a­bil­i­ty of its prod­ucts.

Teracube One

Last but not least, let’s move on to the smart­phone, which is much less known than the rest. It’s called Ter­acube One and by itself, this smart­phone does not bring any­thing new to the indus­try. From the man­u­fac­tur­ers, he received very uno­rig­i­nal, one might even say mod­est char­ac­ter­is­tics: Medi­aTek Helio P60, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of inter­nal mem­o­ry and for some rea­son lim­it­ed bat­tery capac­i­ty — only 3000mAh. When every­one wants to imag­ine big­ger, more pow­er­ful and more spec­tac­u­lar, such a hes­i­tant approach to device devel­op­ment seems sur­pris­ing. But don’t be so quick to judge by the cov­er.

This device was cre­at­ed through crowd­fund­ing, which means that it already has its fans. Why, you ask? We have an answer. The only thing that sets the Ter­acube One apart from the aver­age on the mar­ket is the war­ran­ty pol­i­cy. Man­u­fac­tur­ers promise 4 years of world­wide sup­port. 4 years. How­ev­er, if you live out­side of the US, then you need to remem­ber that the cost of ship­ping the device is the respon­si­bil­i­ty of the own­er. How­ev­er, hav­ing con­fi­dence in your prod­uct inspires con­fi­dence. For exam­ple, if you dam­age your smart­phone, you can get it fixed for $39, and that goes for any dam­age, includ­ing a shat­tered or bro­ken screen. If the bat­tery fails dur­ing the war­ran­ty peri­od, the com­pa­ny under­takes to replace it with a new one free of charge. What does it say? The cre­ators of Ter­racube see their prod­uct as reli­able and durable.

And while there’s noth­ing spe­cial about the smart­phone itself, this new ser­vice pol­i­cy is def­i­nite­ly excit­ing, and hope­ful­ly oth­er com­pa­nies will adopt it for their prod­ucts.

CES 2020 is just the first indi­ca­tion of what we can expect in 2020. The fur­ther, the more new devices, announce­ments and spe­cial tech­nolo­gies will appear, which will lat­er be applied every­where. And if you are espe­cial­ly look­ing for­ward to a par­tic­u­lar smart­phone, then do not rush to be dis­ap­point­ed if you do not see it in the list. The year has just begun and the most inter­est­ing, as always, lies ahead of us.
