CES 2019: LG wins innovation awards, again

LG Electronics (LG) continues to win the hearts of industry judges, this time ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2019) in Las Vegas. The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) recognised LG innovations in technology and design for its flagship smartphones, wearables, LG OLED TVs, soundbar and home appliances.

LG is no stranger in pocketing awards, marking the seventh consecutive year it has received CES Innovation Awards for its flagship smartphones, LG OLED TVs and home appliances.

The South Korean consumer electronics giant will receive CTA’s highest honor, CES Best of Innovation Awards for its LG V40 ThinQ smartphone and latest soundbar product, both to debut at the 2019 show in January.

That aside, the LG G7 ThinQ smartphone and LG Watch W7 also pick up innovation awards alongside LG’s advanced new laundry appliances, advanced TVs, audio systems and more, all to be introduced at the world’s biggest consumer electronics show.

The CES Innovation Awards, sponsored by the CTA and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of America, recognises product advancements across technology design and engineering.

The annual awards are selected by a panel of esteemed industry designers, engineers and journalists who judge submissions based on various criteria: user value, aesthetics, innovative design, quality and contributions to quality of life.

The full list of LG’s CES 2019 Innovation Award winners including yet another Best of Innovations Award, will be announced in conjunction with LG’s CES press conference at 08:00 PST on 7 January 2019.

CES 2019 happens from 8-11 January 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Each year, the show attracts more than 180,000 individuals from over 150 countries, including 6,500 members of the world’s media and over 65,000 senior-level executives.
