Asus ZenFone 2

Asus plans to release the next series of its Android-powered ZenFone at CES 2015, and a couple cryptic teaser trailers seem to indicate that the focus is on the camera. (It says “optical zoom” in Morse code, by the way.)

Obox

If you’ve ever wanted to give a kid a console that really, really looks like an Xbox and even has a similar name, and then watched them get gravely disappointed when they realize it’s just an Android console for their TV, good news! Chinese vendor Snail Games gives you the Obox, which is exactly that.

Kodak

Old-school photography giant Kodak is planning to announce an Android-powered phone at CES 2015, to be followed by a tablet, another phone and – naturally enough – a camera later this year. Hopefully Kodak’s digital re-imagining works out better than, for example, Polaroid’s.

LG G Flex 2

The G Flex 2 was announced Monday at LG’s pre-CES event, boasting a slightly less aggressive curve and substantially improved hardware when compared to its late 2013 predecessor. It’s also slightly smaller, so it’s hard to see why the tagline isn’t: “G Flex 2 – the curved phone that WON’T stab you in the kidney when you sit down on it.”

Parrot RNB6

You probably know Parrot as the people behind those obnoxious little AR drones that infest most major tech events, but what they’ve done with the RNB6 is nothing less than a full replacement for your car’s entertainment dash.

An early preview of the Galaxy S6?

Rumor has it that the next in Samsung’s illustrious Galaxy line of smartphones is getting a behind-closed-doors preview at CES 2015. OK, this is anonymous sources being quoted by a gossip site called SamMobile, but it’s the closest Samsung’s been to a major release at CES in a long time.
