IFA, or Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin, began humbly in 1924 as an international radio exhibition. Since then, it’s grown into one of the largest annual consumer electronics shows anywhere, with more than 200,000 visitors anticipated over the next few days.
The Berlin expo is a who’s who of the appliance and device makers, with the likes of Microsoft, Bang & Olufsen, Casio, Samsung, LG, Sony, Huawei, ZTE, Asus, Acer, Toshiba, Philips, Panasonic, Amazon, and other industry titans making appearances. As in years past, a slew of announcements marked the start of IFA 2019, and VentureBeat covered the events as they happened from the show floor.
Here are a few of the highlights so far.
