IFA 2020

Like every other industry gathering this year, IFA 2020 will be a markedly different event as the COVID-19 pandemic persists, with Germany's tech showcase offering a full live stream and a very limited physical showcase at the Messe Berlin exhibition grounds. The big players are still showing up in force, including Intel, LG, Nvidia, Samsung, and Qualcomm, among others, and expect the standard slate of news about new phones, TVs, smart home gadgets, and more. But we'll have to see if IFA can pull off a hybrid physical-virtual event in a world still largely watching from home.
