Your Weekly Tech Guide To The Coolest Gadgets And Accessories
Looking for a handy speaker or just a trendy phone cover? Here are all the best gadgets and accessories you can look at
The Sonos Five is the most expensive speaker in the brand’s India line-up. This speaker has been tuned by renowned music producer Giles Martin and is crafted for those who take their music very seriously. It looks every inch premium; you can place the Sonos Five either vertically or horizontally and access the physical buttons either ways. Three tweeters, three mid-woofers, six class-D amplifiers come together in this high-quality speaker that weighs about 6.3kg. Just like those massive hi-fi systems, the Sonos Five delivers great details even at low volumes. It is available on the Sonos India website for Rs 59,999.
The Asus makes a strong case for itself as a smaller ‘iPhone mini-type’ smartphone. It’s one of the most compact Android smartphones that comes with flagship-class features. Colours are vibrant on the 5.9-inch (2400×1080 pixels / 445 PPI) AMOLED display that peaks at 1100 nits and features a 120Hz refresh rate. At the heart of the 8Z is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor that combines with 8GB of RAM. The dual camera snaps sharp images while the 4000 mAh battery won’t let you down. But most of all it’s the sheer joy of one-handed navigation that sets it apart. Buy it on Flipkart for Rs 42,999
The S8+ sits in the middle of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8 trio of flagship Android Tabs. The immersive 12.4-inch (2800×1752 pixels) Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate is one of its talking points. This elegantly designed tab has a thickness of just 5.7mm despite its robust 10,090 mAh battery that lets you engage in those all-night Netflix sessions. The Tab S8+ is powered by the best of the breed — the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It can be expanded up to 1TB with a Micro SD card. Samsung’s proprietary DeX solution gives it laptop-style functionality. Available From Rs 74,999 on the Samsung India website.
