Complementing the high-quality display is the powerful, in-built Harman Kardon quad-speaker system for a truly immersive viewing experience all around.

Behind that display is the capable Huawei Kirin 820 chipset with Mali-G57 GPU for smoother performance in day-to-day tasks. Huawei doubles down on productivity with a bevy of features for the users too. That includes a faster Wi-Fi 6 for faster downloads and streaming. EMUI 10.1 — the OS powering the tablet — comes with multi-window feature for faster multitasking. Indeed, multitasking is a breeze thanks to the included 128 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM.

Huawei is backing these great features on its MatePad tablet with a large 7,250 mAh battery. The tablet also supports fast charging, so users can go from 0 to 100 percent in less than three hours.

New to this pair of iPhones is the A15 Bionic chip which, you already know, boosts the performance of the iPhone. You’re also getting Cinematic Mode which automatically adds background blur to your videos. It does this through an algorithm. It’s the first of its kind on smartphones.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset now sports Midnight Black

Nicely paired with the DualSense controller and your “Midnight Black” PS5



Pulse 3D Wireless

Back in June, Sony announced two additional colorways for its next-generation DualSense controller. Apart from the classic white, the PlayStation 5’s newest controller also received a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. This time around, they’ve extended the invitation to another PS5 peripheral, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.

Much like the DualSense controller, the headset will also come in Midnight Black. Other than this, everything else is pretty much the same for the Pulse 3D Headset. In essence, it still gives you deeper, more immersive 3D sounds to games that fully take advantage of this. It’s just that now, you have other color options to choose from. Whether or not this also comes in Cosmic Red, Sony has yet to announce that.

It’s worth noting that included in the PS5’s second major update is an equalizer for the 3D Pulse. It adds another layer of control for players. This lets them enjoy the game precisely the way they want to. But if tweaking isn’t your thing, there are also three presets: Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in Midnight Black will be available on October 29 for PhP 5,590/ SG$ 149 / MYR 469/ DR1,699,000 / THB3,490 / VND2,699,000.

Shopee is on a roll. After securing performances from K-Pop supergroup TWICE, the online shopping company has also secured performances from K-Pop 4th Gen superstars ITZY. The group is set to perform on their 10.10 Brand Festival Shopee live.

Shopee has yet to reveal what else they have in store for 10.10. But what we can expect for sure is another generous round of vouchers and giveaways.

ITZY is a five-member girl group featuring Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Chaeryeong, and Yuna. The group debuted with the song “Dalla Dalla”. In 2020, they launched the shoulder dance craze with their comeback “Wannabe”. On September 24, the group will release their first full album called Crazy In-Love with the title track “Loco”.

Early Shopee Christmas

In the Philippines, Shopee is already kickstarting its Christmas campaign. They are welcoming the holidays essentially the voice and face of Christmas in the country — Jose Mari Chan.  Shoppers can catch the singer-songwriter on holiday-themed in-app games such as Shopee Catch and Shopee Collectibles from  September to December.

The singer-songwriter will also give out treats via ShopeePay come December. He’s doing it along with other celebrities and influencers. Look for ShopeePay Celebrity Pamasko on your homepage and play the game to receive ShopeePay credits.
