OnePlus 10 Pro 5G: We’ve had our eyes on the Emerald Forest variant of OnePlus’ new flagship since the first images showed up online. The 10 Pro is the best-looking OnePlus device we’ve ever checked out, with a premium build and a unique rear camera design. Just like on its predecessor, Hasselblad has worked closely with OnePlus on the rear cam that makes improvements in lowlight. 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). Other highlights include an immersive 6.7-inch Fluid AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 5000 mAh battery. Order it on Amazon, priced starting at Rs 66,999.
JBL Flip 6: The newest addition to the popular JBL Flip line, 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, and we dig the recyclable paper-based box. Check it out on the JBL India website, priced at Rs 11,999.
Samsung Galaxy A53 5G: Clean lines and a minimalist design language make the Samsung Galaxy A53 one of the most elegant smartphones in the sub Rs 40K segment.
