Techtember is here, and with it comes the start of the IFA consumer trade show in Berlin. While CES might be the major show in the States, in Europe, it’s all about IFA. And, as luck would have it, members of our Gadget Flow team are there, inspecting some of the biggest product launches of the year. We’re highlighting what they saw in our roundup of the best gadgets of IFA day 1.

IFA 2023 Day 1 highlights by Gadget Flow

One of the staff’s favorite announcements of the day was the XGIMI HORIZON Ultra 4K projector. XGIMI calls it the “world’s first 4K long-throw projector with Dolby Vision.” And it does have stunningly bright visuals in an affordable design.

Another highlight was the Honor V Purse concept phone. It aims to imagine what foldable phones could look like if they were fashion accessories. The V Purse boasts straps and chains, like a purse. The display is on the outside, showing wallpapers of different purse styles.

Check out everything we loved from IFA day 1.

1. The XGIMI HORIZON Ultra 4K long-throw projector delivers a bright picture for an affordable price. Get it for $1,614.05 on the official website.

Wish your phone could be a fashion accessory? Then the Honor V Purse is your dream come true. This concept phone has strap and chain handles, enabling users to hold it like a purse.

Interestingly, the display is the exterior, not the interior. This way, it can show wallpapers of different purse styles, letting you change the look whenever you feel like it. For this reason, it’s one of the best IFA day 1 gadgets.

3. The Lenovo Legion 9i AI-tuned gaming laptop stays cool under pressure with its liquid cooling system. It’s coming soon for $4,399 on the brand’s website.

For its part, the LG InstaView Oven offers an A++ energy efficiency rating, while the LG QuadWash has an A-rated efficiency.

Another of the best IFA day 1 announcements was the Bang & Olufsen the Ferrari Collection. Consisting of a home speaker, portable speaker, earbuds, and headphones, each device features the Ferrari red hue and a sporty design.

In particular, we love the cylinder-like shape of the Beosound 2 Ferrari Edition. You can rely on it to fill any room with roaring bass and bring a distinct Italian motorsport look to the room.

9. The LG StanbyME Go smart portable AI touchscreen brings entertainment to your tailgates, camping trips, and more. Preorder it for $999.99 on the official website.

What’s more, the briefcase exterior with handle makes the StanbyME Go super easy to carry and transport in a vehicle. The hard-sided case protects the touchscreen in transit.

10. The Ecovacs DEEBOT X20 OMNI has an uncommon square shape, which helps it tackle corners. Pricing and availability have not been released.

An unusual offering in a sea of circular-shaped robot vacuums is the Ecovacs DEEBOT X2 OMNI. This robot’s square shape is supposedly better at tackling corners and edges than its rounded cousins.

However, square robot vacuums often find navigation a challenge. Ecovacs believes it has worked out all the bugs in the design, though. Meanwhile, the vacuum/mop auto empties, washes, and dries the mops. Plus, it refills its own water tank.

Well there you have it folks, Gadget Flow’s picks for the best gadgets of IFA day 1. From vacuums to speakers and everything in between, the first day of IFA 2023 offered a look at some exciting new products. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s edition!
