    Samsung today announced that 36 of its latest products have won CES 2016 Innovation Awards. The products across 28 different categories have been honored for their outstanding design and engineering. The categories include Virtual and Augmented Reality, Wearable Technologies, Video Displays, Smart Home and Home Appliances.

    This is also the first time in years that Samsung has won in the CES Innovation Category of Fitness, Sports and Biotech. The Gear Sport, Gear Fit2Pro and Gear IconX (2018) have won it that award.

    The Consumer Technology Association, which owns and organizes the annual Consumer Electronics Show, sponsors the CES Innovation Awards.

    “To be recognized by our industry peers, year over year, for our relentless pursuit of innovative design and engineering is truly an honor,” said Tim Baxter, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics North America.

    Some of the products that have been awarded include Samsung's recently launched HMD Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality Headset, the Galaxy Note 8 flagship smartphone and the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The ultra-wide 49-inch CHG90 Gaming Monitor and Connect Home Pro, the first smart Wi-Fi system that fuses mesh networking technology with a SmartThings Hub are on the list as well.

    Many of Samsung's products that have won these awards will be showcased at CES 2018 which takes place from January 9-12, 2018. Samsung's booth #15006 will be located in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

    Wait, is that a new processor?

    Samsung hasn't announced its new Exynos 9 processor officially but it mentions the unannounced Exynos 9810 as one of the award-winning products. It's described as the company's latest flagship processor with 3rd-generation custom CPU cores, upgraded GPU and gigabit LTE modem with 6CA support. Samsung has also revealed that it's built on the 2nd generation 10nm process technology.

    We can certainly expect to hear more about the Exynos 9810 in the days to come. After all, this flagship chip will be powering Samsung's high-end devices next year.
