Huawei launched honor 5X smartphone in the Middle East that will be the first smartphone to be launched on its newly launched dedicated e-commerce platform and will be available in three colours – Gold, Grey and Silver – at the RKRP (Recommended ‘Killer’ Retail Price) of AED 899. A middle-weight champion in the making, the honor 5X has been designed with all the high spec technology and design consumers actually want, but without the expected price tag.
Chris Sunbaigong, Vice President of honor from Huawei commented, “Globally, the reception to our honor 5X device has been phenomenal so we are delighted to finally launch it to our customers here in the Middle East. The honor 5X is set to change consumers mind when it comes to price versus quality as it is packed with premium features that have never been seen before in its price category. This underlines our ongoing commitment to the end smartphone users here – we are genuinely offering unmatchable experience to digital natives who are value conscious. We challenge you to look at the specs, look at the price, then look back at the specs and not be impressed.”
The honor 5X second generation fingerprint sensor offers the end user the chance to personalise their smartphone experience in a single touch. The adaptive sensor allows the user to easily set up all ten fingerprints to access personalised elements of their device, call specific contacts or activate apps and tools. The feature offers speed and accuracy, as well as a 0.5-second unlocking time. Using advanced technology, it boasts a self-learning capability that also prevents failed recognition caused by wet hands or partial fingerprints.
The design of the full metal device was inspired by the shape and design of the famous Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain, blending a distinctive curved design with ergonomic principles to feel perfectly at home in users’ hands. The device features a 5.5-inch 10-point multi-touch Full-HD IPS display and houses cutting-edge 13MP back facing and 5MP front facing cameras that capture high-quality images with high clarity and dynamic colour reproduction in a variety of different shooting scenarios. Happy snappers will revel in the number of camera feature modes available including Good Food, Perfect Selfie, Time-lapse, Slow Motion as well as an array of in-built filters.
Powered by a Qualcomm 64-bit Octa-core processor with a 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard memory, the honor 5X is a powerful devices with a robust 3,000mAh battery, integrated SmartPower 3.0 technology and an eight-point power saving plan that reduces power consumption by 30 per cent. This is the first metallic honor phone to feature three different card slots — nano-SIM, micro-SIM, and microSD, perfect device for the multi-tasking digital natives in the Middle East.
Chris Sunbaigong predicts that the Middle East market is ripe to project honor’s growth ahead of the curve this year, boosted further with the launch of the brand’s e-commerce site and the 5X, “We are positive about honor’s future in the Middle East this year which is set to grow and develop even further now that we have launched our dedicated e-commerce platform. The www.HonorArabia.com site is a place where consumers can browse and shop honor products directly for the first time including the new honor 5X.”
RYSE Launches SmartShade
RYSE has launched its SmartShades – a motorised shade. The company claims that it is the only retrofit solution, meaning it can be set up on any window shade already installed in your home, office, hotel room, or anywhere. The device involves a Chain-Drive system, in which the motor is mounted on the window frame and controls the chains or cords of your window shade. The idea is surprisingly simple – the motor essentially acts as a pulley system for your window shade.
Installation takes a matter of minutes. In 3 easy steps, you can transform your cord-controlled shades into motorised ones. All you have to do is install the mounting bracket on the window frame, loop the chain/cords through the cogwheel, and snap the device onto the bracket to tighten the chain/cord – that’s it. You can then program the SmartShade to lock the top and bottom positions into memory.
This motor is guaranteed to lift your window shade, regardless of its size or weight. How is this possible? This is because the clutch that already comes with your window shade helps reduce the required force needed to pull. While you can power the RYSE SmartShade with an AC Plug into the wall outlet, many of the company’s partners, including hotels and commercial office space, wanted a sleek clean look that is wire-free.
So the company created a removable, rechargeable battery pack that can last up to a staggering 9 months on a single charge, and you can simply recharge the pack via USB.
Control your shades via the buttons on the device or with our mobile app, where you can even create schedules – you can have them set up to rise at 7 am to help me wake up to natural sunlight, and close at 8 pm to give you privacy. Or integrate with Google Home, Amazon Alexa, or Apple HomeKit and control your shades by saying a few simple words. “Hey Google, open my window shades!”
Forget paying thousands of dollars per window just to have Smart Shades. RYSE SmartShade retails for only $149 – a fraction of the cost of competing solutions in the marketplace today.
TEAMGROUP Launches the Upgraded SIREN GD240E AIO ARGB CPU Liquid Cooler with LGA 1700 Compatibility
TEAMGROUP has announced the new SIREN GD240E All-In-One ARGB CPU Liquid Cooler, which comes with a mounting bracket for the latest LGA 1700 socket and fully supports 12th Generation Intel processors and Z690 motherboards, making it a must-have cooling solution for gamers. Launched alongside the CPU cooling system is the M200 Portable SSD, winner of Japan’s 2021 GOOD DESIGN Award. Hardcore gamers around the world can look forward to both products when they are released globally this December.
The newly upgraded SIREN GD240E AIO ARGB CPU Liquid Cooler not only supports various older Intel and AMD sockets but also provides a mounting kit for the latest LGA 1700 socket. The specially selected base plate, support screws, and mounting brackets enable the water block to fit snugly with the processor. The full and even contact between the surfaces aids heat transfer swiftly to the high-density jet fin heat sink, greatly increasing the heat dissipation area and quickly removing heat from the CPU.
To optimise efficiency and the path of heat transfer, the SIREN GD240E is equipped with an ultra-fast 4000RPM water pump that’s installed on the radiator to reduce wear and noise on the CPU caused by water pump vibrations. These features allow the system to deliver 1.5 times higher cooling performance than typical liquid-cooled products while also providing the best protection for the next-gen Intel processors. The SIREN GD240E is an all-in-one liquid cooler system with top-notch heat dissipation and visual flair thanks to the water block’s elegant mirror finish and high-speed ARGB fans that support all major motherboard lighting software.
The M200 Portable SSD has a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 interface, which delivers a blazing fast speed of 2,000MB/s, four times that of USB 3.2 Gen 1 external SSDs. It also features USB Type A and Type C OTG capabilities and supports a wide range of platforms, including tablets, smartphones, and PlayStation and Xbox consoles. With a total weight of only 83 grams and a maximum capacity of 8TB, the M200 Portable SSD is lightweight and portable, giving you easy access to fast drive speeds and massive storage at any time.
The upgraded SIREN GD240E AIO ARGB CPU Liquid Cooler provides a new CPU cooling option for the latest Intel platform, and the high-speed M200 Portable SSD offers two different transmission interfaces, so consumers with large capacity storage needs can buy with confidence. These two new products will be available worldwide in December 2021.
