CES 2021: all the latest smartphones and tablets
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has always been a good opportunity for the announcement of new smartphones and tablets. While manufacturers prefer to reserve space for these devices during the Mobile World Congress scheduled for February, some like to reveal their cards early. Also this year, therefore, there were several presentations from rather well-known manufacturers such as LG, HP, Lenovo, TCL and Alcatel.

Samsung has even dedicated an entire event to their products in this category, which we have already talked about in our dedicated article. In short, many interesting news in this early 2021, especially for the medium-low range of the smartphone and tablet market. There were also some quite sensational surprises, such as the LG smartphone capable of "unrolling" to increase the size of its display. We just have to launch into this article in which we try to summarize all the news regarding the mobile sector announced during CES 2021.

LG Rollable

One of the most discussed protagonists of this CES 2021 it was undoubtedly the LG Rollable smartphone. As the name suggests, this device is capable of "unrolling" to reach a larger shape with a larger display diagonal. The lens is similar to that fixed by folding smartphones, only this solution looks even more elegant and clean. Unfortunately LG showed us only a simple concept of this revolutionary device, just to attract attention in this new form factor. We expect this project to be better defined in the course of 2021, when more details and technical specifications will come out.

HP Elite Folio

HP continues to offer quite interesting products for the hybrid market. This HP Elite Folio is in fact defined as "the best of a smartphone, tablet and PC". In fact, however, it is neither a smartphone, nor a tablet nor a PC. However, it is a lightweight and portable device with a large 13.5-inch display. It supports the use of the HP Elite Slim Active Pen and has wireless connectivity with WiFi 6 modem. The shell is made of magnesium with a vegan leather cover. Below you will find the complete technical data sheet:

Lenovo Tab P11

Lenovo Tab P11 is a mid-range tablet rather interesting for its technical characteristics and price target. With an 11-inch display, a light and compact design and support for the Precision Pen 2 and Keyboard Pack, it represents a valid alternative to the more popular iPad 2020. It is therefore a ideal product for both high school students and for family use, thanks also to the integration with Google Kids Space. A tablet of the ideal size for reading, web browsing, e-mail consultation, social networks and many and other daily tasks.

There was no shortage of new smartphones and tablets from Alcatel. The company presented three new devices: the two Alcatel 3L and 1S smartphones and the Alcatel 1T 7 WiFi tablet. All three belong to the medium-low range, so they could be quite interesting for a certain segment of users. The devices do not present any particularly interesting novelties, but we can certainly define them as an excellent compromise in quality / price ratio. Below you will find the complete technical data sheets of the two smartphones, while as regards the Alcatel 1T 7 WiFi tablet we do not yet know its specifications.
