Samsung Galaxy F12: The 90Hz refresh rate on the 6.5-inch (720 x 1600 pixels) Infinity-V display (with a teardrop notch) is one of the key highlights of Samsung’s new Galaxy F12. It’s one of the best displays at this price point; it’s quite smooth and colours are vibrant. The F12 is very similar to Samsung’s M12 and shares the same hardware spec sheet. It’s powered by an Exynos 850 processor and comes in a choice 4GB/64GB and 4GB/128GB hardware variants. Other highlights include a robust 6000 mAh battery and a quad rear cam that is headlined by a 48MP primary lens.
Nokia T3110: Nokia’s ultra-light TWS Bluetooth earbuds are kitted with 12.5 mm dynamic drivers that enhance low-bass frequency and generate a smooth mid-range for a well-rounded and detailed sound output. These ergonomically designed buds have an IPX7 rating; they’re sweat and splash proof, making them an ideal workout companion. These buds offer an impressive battery life of 27.5 hours (Case plus buds) but the killer feature is six in-built mics (including 2 ANC and 1 voice pick-up mic) that help minimise background noise and improve call quality.

You can hook up with your smartphone via Bluetooth for step tracking, time adjustments, phone notifications. You can ride on your smartphone’s GPS feature for quicker calibration of distance measurements and accurate running distance measurements. The Super Illuminator face on the high-definition MIP LCD display offers clear visibility even in the dark.
