The Movi phone comes with a built-in pico projector, which serves as its USP. It can project 720p images up to 200 inches in size diagonally. It is priced at $599 (approximately Rs 38,000). Although it is not a revolutionary product, the rest of the specifications bring it at par with a number of mid-range smartphones available today.

It packs a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display, MediaTek MT6750V SoC paired with 3GB/4GB of RAM with 32GB/64GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. For optics, there is a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF and LED flash. Up front, there s an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with soft flashlight. Movi smartphone is fueled by a 4,000mAh battery which is said to provide power for up to four hours with the projector on which is good enough to last a regular movie duration. It runs Android Nougat out-of-the-box.

Razer Project Linda

One of the most interesting products, the Project Linda is a phone which is actually a trackpad for a laptop. Confused? The concept is similar to Samsung Dex, but instead of keeping the phone away from the hardware, Project Linda is a dock for the smartphone and extends it into a full-fledged laptop, repurposing the display of the phone as the trackpad.

While Project Linda is still a concept, when ready, it is likely to have the laptop’s screen as a larger replica of the phone s screen. Meaning that final hardware would feature a 120Hz Quad HD touchscreen that s HDR capable.

Vivo in-screen fingerprint sensor phone

Vivo showcased the prototype of in-screen fingerprint sensor technology at MWC Shanghai last year. At CES, the company chose to showcase a working model with the feature at CES 2018. The new technology was detailed by Qualcomm years ago, but it is only now that a company has reached the production stage.

While the company has not announced the name of the device, it is likely to be the Vivo X20 which has been doing the rounds of the rumor mill from quite sometime now. The purported smartphone with the new authentication technology is likely to be released in the first half of 2018.

BlackBerry Motion

BlackBerry announced a keyboard-less Motion smartphone for the US market. The company also introduced a new version of the KeyOne in matte-bronze finish and dual-SIM support. It features a 5.5-inch full HD display and has an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance. It is fueled by a 4,000mAh battery, which is the highest capacity ever on a BlackBerry smartphone.

LG V30 Raspberry Rose, Signature Edition

Adding to the color palette, LG introduced a fancy new Raspberry Rose version of its V30 smartphone. A cross between a rose gold and a neon pink, the Raspberry Rose variant is quite an eye-catcher. As for the smartphone adorning the new color, the specifications remain the same.

In addition to the new color, the company also launched the Signature Edition of the LG V30. It is priced at an eye-watering $2,000 (approximately Rs 128,000). What sets it worthy for that fat amount is the zirconium ceramic plate build instead of the standard glass body, making it more resistant to scratches. You can also have it customized with your name engraved on the back of the phone.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro Porsche Design

Giving a tough fight to the $1,000-expensive Apple iPhone X, Huawei went a step ahead to showcase its $1,225 (approximately Rs 78,000) priced Mate 10 Pro Porsche Design.

While the core specifications remain similar, the changes are in terms of the unibody glass design, exclusive DiamondBlack color, custom UI, and a bumper 256GB of default internal storage.

Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, Xperia L2

Sony launched three new smartphones at CES 2018, all of which boast wide-angle front cameras for enhanced selfies. Pricing of the smartphones is yet to be announced, but they are likely to be available starting next month.

The Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra are mid-tier smartphones, while the Xperia L2 is an entry-level model. Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra differ on a few aspects such as display size, default storage, and battery. The company has also released an official hands-on video of the new phones.
