LETV hardware, the Huawei octocore Mate 8 smartphone and Faraday’s show-stealing FFZero1 are on Ant Pruitt’s list of the most memorable CES 2016 finds. But wait, there’s more …

ant-pruittaNewDomain — At this year’s CES 2016, I saw a lot of the usual. The TVs, laptops, smartphone accessories and various things related to the Internet of Things.

And then, there were the drones. They were everywhere. You couldn’t cross LVCC without almost getting hit in the head by a quadcopter.

Here are three notable developments I caught at the show. Check them out below.

LETV Phones and TVs

Huawei Mate 8 Faraday First off, there’s LETV. It’s a Chinese digital content delivery company that has decided to get into creating hardware. Why? Because it is out to control how consumers experience its content.

Makes sense. Beautifully designed phones and ultra-thin televisions feature heavily in its inventory. You definitely want to be on the lookout for this one.

The Huawei Octocore Mate 8 Smartphone

Huawei continues to mock the U.S. smartphone market with its Mate 8 smartphone, powered by its superfast octocore Kirin 950 CPU — with a brilliant design and display.

As usual, there were plenty of vehicles on display at CES this year. But Faraday won the show with its FFZero1 vehicle.

It boasts an absolutely futuristic design, a design that stands to change the future of auto manufacturing.

But enough talk.

Here’s a brief video that captures some of the sound, sights and action as I saw them at CES 2016.
