Here are the some of the best gadgets we had on our radar this month:

CABIN CLASS

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8+ might be the most practical option among the new Samsung’s new trio of flagship Android Tabs. The middle child in this line-up, the S8+ boasts of an immersive 12.4-inch (2800 x 1752 pixels) Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It’s elegantly designed and is just 5.7mm thin despite a robust 10090 mAh battery under the hood. It’s powered by a best of breed Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. You can expand it up to 1TB with a Micro SD card. Samsung’s proprietary DeX solution gives it laptop-style functionality. Just what you need to swing from binge-watch mode to work mode on a long flight. Price: Rs 74,999

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ review

PRO SHOOTER

The One Plus 10 Pro aims to build on the camera prowess of last year’s 9 Pro. OnePlus renews its partnership with iconic Swedish brand Hasselblad; the brand has worked closely with OnePlus on the rear cam that makes improvements in lowlight. The 10 Pro is the best-looking OnePlus device we’ve ever checked out, with a premium build and a unique rear camera design. We particularly dig the Emerald Forest colour option. Speed is a given with OnePlus, this one’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and comes in two hardware variants (8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB). You’re likely to gravitate to the immersive 6.7-inch Fluid AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, one of the best smartphone displays out there. Price: Rs 66,999 onwards

BOOM BOX

The JBL Flip 6 is one of the best Bluetooth speakers you can buy under Rs 15,000. The latest addition to JBL’s popular Flip line scores on acoustics and portability. The Flip 6 comes in a revamped colour palette and a whole new audio set-up. This speaker punches above its weight in the acoustics department and includes dual passive radiators, a powerful racetrack-shaped woofer, and a separate tweeter for better high- frequency extension. It’s outdoor party proof, thanks to an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance. JBL pegs the battery life at 12 hours. Price: Rs 11,999

LET THERE BE LIGHT

The Panasonic LUMIX GH6 is the latest flagship from Panasonic to join the LUMIX G Series. This stunning digital mirrorless camera is crafted with a magnesium alloy. The talking point of this rugged and portable pro cam is the new 25.2-megapixel Live MOS Sensor. It boasts a high-resolution, high-speed signal readout, and a wide dynamic range running on the Venus Engine that allows faster rendering of high-resolution images. Autofocus gets a boost by utilising the new sensor and image-processing engine. Price: Rs 2,34,990

SHUT OUT THE WORLD

The successor to the CX400BT, Sennheiser’s CX Plus is one of the best TWS Bluetooth earbuds in the acoustics department you can buy for under Rs 15K. While the CX Plus also features a 7mm driver like its predecessor, Sennheiser has added a True Response transducer to this dynamic driver. Sennheiser says that this bespoke acoustic system delivers high- fidelity stereo sound with deep bass, natural mids and clear, detailed treble. Other improvements include a more comfortable design and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) that is quite effective even in noisy environments. Price: Rs 12,999

A WIDER CANVAS

We’ve had our eyes on the BenQ X3000i since it first showed up at CES 2022. The X3000i projector features a native 4K (3,840×2,160 pixels) picture quality with a 60Hz refresh rate and 16ms response time, with support for HDR10 and HLG support, and a contrast ratio of 50,00,000:1. The colours are quite brilliant. Gamers will approve the input lag; the X3000i supports a refresh rate of 240Hz at 1080p resolution with a 4ms response time. BenQ has packed the projector with in-built 10W BenQ treVolo speakers with Bongiovi Digital Power Station (DPS) algorithm for real-time sound optimisation. Price: Rs 4,00,000
