IFA 2018: what to expect from Berlin’s massive tech show


It’s that time of year again: IFA 2018 is almost here, and while we’ve seen some big IFAs in the past, the 2018 edition could be the biggest yet.

The week-long event gets underway on August 29 in the German capital, with dozens of major hardware manufacturers coming together to showcase their latest and greatest creations.

Smartphones, smart speakers, televisions, headphones, laptops and more – IFA is always a bonanza of consumer tech and home appliances, having expanded to the extent that it’s now a major competitor to CES in Las Vegas, its American counterpart.
