IFA 2017 Event Wrap-up: Everything you need to know

IFA is a trade show traditionally held at the beginning of every September. Tech companies based all over the world come together under a single roof to show their latest products, developments and projects. For the better part of ten years, the IFA conference has been held in Berlin, Germany, and has been one of the three apart the big trio that occur each year (CES, MWC, IFA).

Big announcements are made during this event every year, and this year’s showcase is expected to be no different. It’s where manufacturers can connect with media and consumers to show what they’ve been working on.

With all the talk, rumors, reports, and leaks heard about over recent weeks, we have accrued a somewhat good idea of what to expect. Some of the big names we discuss frequently here on Droid Turf have already confirmed a press conference. We’re talking about Samsung, LG, Sony, Lenovo, Huawei, BlackBerry, and more. From what we’ve seen and heard, there should be gadgets of all kinds at the event, are we’ll be looking to absorb as much as we can to share with all of you!

CES was held in January and typically entails many product launches including TVs, home appliances, virtual reality gear, and audio equipment. MWC took place in February and consisted mostly of mobile technology: cell phones, smartwatches and tablets. IFA has been anybody’s guess really, as we see a large mixture of product species unveiled. Most of the time, but not always, the tech unveiled at this show makes way to markets during the fall season. The start is closely approaching so now is a good time to round-up the latest rumblings. Here’s a list of all rumors we’ve reported during recent weeks here on Droid Turf, providing clues to what may just go down.

UPDATE: IFA 2017 has now concluded and what a show it was. Expect most of the newly announced tech to make way to markets during the upcoming fall season. Below are all the major happenings that took place over the recent week.
