LG Electronics continues to bring huge reveals at IFA 2018 in Berlin. Apart from launching a new kitchen suite, gaming monitor, and wearable robot, the company is now introducing its new 8K OLED TV. This initiative is a step towards the company’s goal of innovation and hope to lead the market for OLED TVs in the future.
The company did not reveal too much about their new 8K OLED TV other than the resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels. It also covers bright colors and deep blacks thanks to over 33 million self-emitting pixels on an 88-inch display. According to Brian Kwon, LG’s Home Entertainment President, this is the “pinnacle of technological advancement” as it hopes to bounce off the success of 4K OLED TVs.
The company claims that this is the world’s first 8K OLED TV and hopes to lead the market of premium TVs in the future. They expect that shipments for OLED TVs to increase this year, and introducing 8K OLED will only further that growth.
LG, however, has yet to announce the availability, price, and other features for their new 8K OLED TV.
Polaroid OneStep+ puts a modern twist to old-school photography
Don’t judge a camera by its vintage appearance
As the throwback trend continues to be popular, print photos are coming back in style. And in a time where the Fujifilm Instax line has taken the world by storm, Polaroid jumps back in to take back the crown with their latest release, the Polaroid OneStep+.
Inspired by the 1977 OneStep model, the Polaroid OneStep+ takes the classic Polaroid camera and packs it with a bunch of cool features to pull it right into the late 2010s. You can still snap a photo instantly, just like old-school Polaroids, but now you can also use a new app that lets you do fancy stuff with your camera.
Remote Trigger, Self Timer, and Noise Trigger make it so that you can get the perfect group shot even without having to ask a stranger to take it. Give your photographs more character with Double Exposure and Light Painting. And enhance the quality of your captures with Portrait and Manual mode.
Just like that, your instant photography game just got much more elevated. And apart from the i-Type film that’s specially made for this line, you can use their 600 film which gives this new and innovative little machine even more of a vintage feel. For the price you pay, I think it’d be well worth it!
The Polariod OneStep+ is available now, and you can get it for US$ 159 on their website.
Sennheiser’s new earbuds take true wireless tech to a whole new level
So many features in such a tiny object
One of the biggest names in the audio industry, Sennheiser, just announced their first entry into the true wireless game. During IFA 2018, they revealed the Momentum True Wireless earbuds — a great mending of form and function.
These earbuds use Sennheiser’s driver technology to ensure amazing sound quality, and the mix of their noise-cancellation technology and Transparent Hearing makes it possible to still be aware of what’s around you even with them on.
They’re lightweight, splash- and sweat-resistant, and have different ear tip sizes to make sure they are comfortable for everyone. These were also designed with an intuitive touch surface that lets you tap or swipe to control your music, answer phone calls, or call up your voice assistant. It claims to last about five hours but, as is with other products in the game, charge only when inside the case.
It’s amazing how all that tech can fit into as small a packaging as these earbuds. At US$ 299, they’re a bit pricey, but considering what you get for it, I think these could be an amazing daily driver.
The Momentum True Wireless earbuds will be available in mid-November, and you can pre-order them here.
GadgetMatch Awards: Best of IFA 2018
What an amazing selection of products!
IFA has had a whirlwind of amazing announcements at its show in Berlin this year, and now that most brands showed their best products, we’re finally able to give out awards for the ones that caught our attention the most.
Here we are: These are the best gadgets and tech we’ve seen at IFA 2018!
ASUS ZenBook 14
IFA became a showcase for laptops that eliminate bezels almost entirely. The ASUS ZenBook 14 is a great example of this, and even offers one of the most unique trackpads we’ve ever seen, being able to turn into a virtual numpad at the press of a button. Now that’s laptop innovation!
Huawei Kirin 980
While other manufacturers are scrambling to release their next-generation processor, Huawei beat everyone to the punch with the Kirin 980, the world’s first commercial 7nm chipset. It’s amazingly fast both in AI capabilities and real-world usage — a must-see on Huawei’s next flagship phone!
Huawei P20 Pro (Leather)
How do you make one of the best Android phones this year even better? If you ask Huawei, it’s by slapping on genuine leather to the back for an awesome new texture. The leather variant of the P20 Pro not only looks good, but will also age like fine wine the more you use it.
If you want something that can track your valuables wherever they are, it doesn’t get any better than the Huawei Tracker. It’s complete in features, from the SIM and full global navigation support to IP68 water and dust resistance. Nothing will ever get lost when this is attached!
