The LG TONE Free TWS earbuds self-cleans

The case uses UVnano tech to get rid if bacteria

Published

Even LG is jumping in on the TWS game. Launching in Singapore is the LG TONE Free TWS Earbuds (HBS-FN6).

They look, unsurprisingly at this point, like AirPods as nearly every smartphone maker with TWS earbuds are now following that stem design. Naturally, the overall tech and other capabilities slightly differ.

For one, the HBS-FN6 come with what LG claims as an “industry-first” UVnano case. What it does is eliminates bacteria on the earbuds as they charge. LG decided to do this citing studies that earbuds can harbor more bacteria than a kitchen cutting board. Scary stuff. But the case has built-in ultraviolet to send those bacteria to smithereens.

The case, of course, can charge the earbuds pretty quickly too.  You get up to an hour of listening time after a five-minute charge. When juice it up all the way to 100%, you get six hours on the earbuds and three full charges from the case. Neat.

In terms of sound quality, the LG TONE Free TWS Earbuds (HBS-FN6) are tuned and supported by tech from Meridian Audio. The company has long partnered with LG for audio solutions. They incorporated HSP (Headphone Spatial Processing) tech to deliver a clear, loud, and immersive sound.

The earbuds also come with customized EQ sound settings letting you toggle between balanced audio or one that leans toward bass.

Pricing and availability

LG TONE Free TWS Earbuds (HBS-FN6) retails for SG$ 268 and will available in Singapore Starting September 14 at authorized retailers Best Denki, POPULAR, Courts, Harvey Norman, Lazada and Shopee.

From 14 September, Customers can enjoy a promotional price of S$188, for Stylish Black on Lazada and Modern White on Shopee, limited to the first 50 sets on each platform.

Samsung announces larger S Pen Pro

And a brand new S Pen

Published

on

Because of the controversial charger decision, the recently launched Galaxy S21 series lost a lot of momentum for its more bombastic features. For example, did you know that Samsung now supports third-party styluses outside of Samsung’s own S Pens? Additionally, Samsung is launching the S Pen Pro.

Before that, however, Samsung has also announced a brand-new S Pen. Compared to the tiny stylus from the Galaxy Note series, the new S Pen is larger, making it more comfortable to hold. However, there is a tradeoff: The new S Pen doesn’t have an internal battery. It won’t have the same Bluetooth functionalities as the ones from the Galaxy Note series. At the very least, infused with Wacom’s technology, the new S Pen still has some functions for Samsung’s smartphones.

Now, onto the S Pen Pro. Compared to the new S Pen, the S Pen Pro is even larger. Since it’s bigger, it can fit an internal battery, which adds Bluetooth functionality including external buttons like a shutter for the camera.

Because both new variants are larger, they can’t fit inside a smartphone slot. They can, however, fit on a smartphone case.

So far, Samsung has not announced any robust specifications yet. We don’t know how big the new S Pens are or how much they will cost. However, the company has promised that both will launch sometime this year. For now, Samsung users, especially for the new Galaxy S21 Ultra, can still use their old S Pens from the Galaxy Note series.

If you’re out walking, it’ll adjust the noise levels to make sure you still hear if some vehicle is about to run you over. We don’t want anyone getting run over.

It can do this thanks to multiple audio settings that mimic multi-directional surround sound. It has a 6.5mm tweeter and 11mm woofer for better sound.
