SOUQ.com has announced the start of sales of the all-new Kindle, the first Kindle with a front light for under AED 400. Now you can adjust the display brightness to read comfortably in even more places—whether indoors at night or outside in the sun. The all-new Kindle also includes an updated design, the latest electronic ink technology for better contrast. The all-new Kindle comes in black or white for just AED 359 and is available today at https://uae.souq.com/ae-en/ae-kindle/c/.

“Customers consistently tell us how much they appreciate having a front light on Kindle devices so they can read in any environment—from a sunny patio to their bed at night,” said Kevin Keith, Vice President, Amazon Devices. “The team worked hard to bring this customer-favorite feature to our most affordable device, and we’re excited to introduce the all-new Kindle—the first Kindle under AED 400 with a built-in adjustable front light.”

Like all Kindle devices, the all-new Kindle provides a sanctuary reading experience with no distractions and includes a glare-free display with laser-quality text that’s easy to read. The new adjustable front light makes it even more comfortable to read in a variety of places while still delivering weeks of battery life. The all-new Kindle also includes updated electronic ink technology for better contrast and now uses capacitive touch to prevent accidental swipes on the six-inch, 167 ppi display.

The refreshed design delivers all these great features while keeping the device thin and light, so it’s easy to hold in one hand for long reading sessions. And the all-new Kindle comes with features customers love—storage to hold thousands of books so you can take your library with you, a battery life that lasts weeks not hours, and a durable design that makes it easy to bring with you on the go.

The all-new Kindle helps you go beyond a book with Amazon’s newest reading features. Now, when you finish a book, it will automatically be marked as read in your library and synced across your reading devices including Kindle, Fire tablet, and the free Kindle apps for iOS and Android. With just a few taps, you can filter to see which books you’ve read and which you haven’t, so organizing your library has never been easier.

Additionally, last year, we introduced a new home experience making it easier to find your next great read. We’re continuing to add to the experience and now you will find more recommendations based on your reading history, including new and trending titles in the Kindle Store. These features will be delivered as a free, over-the-air update to the all-new Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite Gen 6 (released in 2013), and newer devices in the coming months.

The all-new Kindle includes all the features that have made the Kindle family the best devices for reading:

  • The world’s best eBook store—Find more than one million Kindle books, and thousands of Arabic titles on Amazon.com (www.amazon.com/kindlebooks). 
  • Reads like real paper—A no-glare display perfect for reading, even in bright sunlight.
  • Carries thousands of books—Easily take your library with you on-the-go.
  • Weeks of battery life—A single charge lasts for weeks.
  • Read books your way—Personalize your ideal reading settings on your Kindle device with a selection of fonts, font sizes, and text alignment options.
  • Buy once read everywhere—With Whispersync, save and synchronize your last page read, bookmarks, and annotations from your Kindle eBook across all of your Kindle devices and the free Kindle app, so you can always pick up where you left off on any device.
  • Worry-free archive—Automatically backs up your Kindle books in the cloud so you never need to worry about losing your books—re-download your books wirelessly anytime for free.
  • Time to Read—Tells you how much time it will take to finish a chapter or a book based on your personalized reading speed.

The new device joins Kindle Paperwhite, which features a high-resolution, 300 ppi display with a flush-front design and waterproofing, and Kindle Oasis, which includes a seven-inch, high-resolution display, waterproofing, and an ergonomic design. The all-new Kindle is 359 AED and is available today at https://uae.souq.com/ae-en/ae-kindle/c/.

Additionally, you can purchase a cover for your all-new Kindle for just AED 99. Covers are thin, snap perfectly onto your device, and are made of woven fabric in a variety of colors, including charcoal black, sandstone white, cobalt blue, and punch red.

Review: ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED (UX3402ZA)

Published

on

The ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED (UX3402ZA) is one of the most elegant and premium-looking ultrabooks we have reviewed in recent times. The device comes packed in a chassis that is made of aluminium alloy, with the ASUS logo etched on the lid using a bunch of lines.

The Zenbook 14 OLED is available in two different colours such as Ponder Blue and Aqua Celadon. We received the Ponder Blue variant which also features an anti-fingerprint coating on its body.

Opening up the lid reveals a 14-inch 2.8K OLED HDR NanoEdge touchscreen that offers an aspect ratio of 16:10. The laptop features 2.8mm bezels, thus offering a screen-to-body ratio of 90%. The display also offers a resolution of 2880-by-1800 pixels, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 0.2ms response time and a 90Hz refresh rate.

The display is also VESA DisplayHDR 500 True Black certified. In addition, the display also supports a peak brightness of up to 600 nits and 0.0005 nits of deep black brightness – this means content creators will have no problems when working on the colour correction of their content.

The ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED also comes with a 180° hinge. This means you can lay the laptop flat on a table for watching content for example. The colours reproduced on this device’s display were rich and vivid.

The Zenbook 14 OLED is part of the ASUS OLED laptops range and hence the display supports cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut. In addition, it is certified for low blue light emission thus keeping you safe from fatigue for instance.

In terms of I/O ports, you get a variety of selections. On the left edge, you get a USB3.2 Gen2 port. On the right edge, you get an HDMI 2.0 port, a 3.5mm audio combo jack, a Thunderbolt 4 USB Type-C port, and a microSD card slot.

Under the hood, the ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED comes packed with a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1260P processor running at a clock speed of 2.10-GHz.

This is coupled with 16GB of RAM and 1TB PCIe of 4.0 x4 NVMe M.2 SSD. Graphics are handled by Intel Iris Xe graphics and the laptop has been built using the Intel Evo platform. For wireless connectivity, you get Dual-band WiFi 6E (802.11ax) and Bluetooth 5.2.

In the past, ScreenXpert 2.0 was used as an application to support and assist ASUS dual-screen models. However, now the brand new ScreenXpert 3.0 supports general single-screen models of ASUS laptops, providing users of ASUS laptops with a more efficient experience when dealing with multi-window-related operations. The single-screen version of ScreenXpert 3.0 features APP Switcher, App Navigator, and Camera & Microphone switcher. This can be enabled in the My ASUS software.

The ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED also comes with an ErgoLift hinge design which results in the ErgoSense keyboard automatically tilting when the laptop is opened. This design allows users to type more comfortably and increases the ventilation space under the chassis for improved heat dissipation.

The keyboard of the Zenbook 14 OLED series achieves a 19.05mm pitch and offers many commonly used function keys, allowing you to type comfortably. The ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED also comes with the NumberPad 2.0. This is an LED-illuminated numeric keypad, which has been integrated into the touchpad.

A single-touch sensor at the top right of the touchpad turns NumberPad on and off, and a tap on the icon at the top left lets you choose one of two brightness levels. In addition, you can also swipe from the top left icon in any direction on the NumberPad 2.0 to activate the Calculator app on the main display.

The speakers on this laptop have been tuned by Harman Kardon and the dual speakers also support Dolby Atmos. The laptop is powered by a 75Wh battery and the laptop weighs just 1.39-kgs.

In our tests, the ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED performed really well. In Cinebench Single Core tests, it scored 1692 points, while in the Multi-Core tests, it scored 10257 points. In PCMark 10, overall it scored 5702 points. Overall, the ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED offers good performance for everyday use for an ultrabook.

For a price of AED 5299, the ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED is a great ultrabook with an awesome OLED screen. If you are a content creator and are looking for a laptop with a great OLED screen and good performance, the ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED might just fit the bill.

Price: AED 5299

Published

on

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced a comprehensive ROG x Evangelion collaboration centred around EVA-01, the flagship mecha of the manga and anime series known around the world. DIY PC builders will be able to assemble a high-end PC featuring EVA 01’s distinctive purple-and-green theme and a variety of artwork directly from the Evangelion universe so that they can fashion their very own ‘NERV command centre’. Options will include a unique ROG Maximus motherboard, two ROG Strix GeForce RTX graphics cards, a ROG Ryujin II 360 AIO cooler, and other top-shelf ROG gear.

ROG Maximus Z690 Hero EVA Edition Motherboard

The ROG Maximus Z690 Hero EVA Edition is covered in the classic purple and green of the EVA-01 and is similarly well-equipped. Robust cooling and power delivery are poised to push the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors to the max. An A.T. Field design around the CPU socket and polymo-lighting on the I/O cover that switches between EVA-01 normal and berserk modes is a further aesthetic treat.

ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 and 3080 EVA Edition Graphics Cards

The EVA Editions of the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 and ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080 come equipped with a myriad of performance-enhancing features. Aesthetic cues from EVA-01 cover the shroud and backplate, and the iconic synchronization effect is displayed on the front ARGB panel.

ROG Ryujin II 360 ARGB EVA Edition AIO Cooler

From end to end, the ROG Ryujin II 360 ARGB EVA Edition embodies the Evangelion spirit. A gunmetal pump cover surrounds a 3.5-inch screen that displays vital stats and customizable GIFs. Meanwhile, reinforced tubing pipes coolant into a radiator loaded with three NERV-styled ARGB fans, ensuring exemplary stability in the heat of battle.

ROG THOR 1000W Platinum II EVA Edition Power Supply

The ROG Thor II Platinum EVA Edition wears an EVA-inspired skin and wields component and cooling upgrades that enable the lowest noise levels — even during the most demanding skirmishes with the opposition.

ROG Strix Helios EVA Edition Chassis

The ROG Strix Helios EVA Edition is a premium mid-tower gaming chassis with three tempered-glass panels, a refined aluminium frame, and integrated front-panel RGB lighting. Interior and exterior details have been fashioned to match the aesthetics of the EVA-01 and house the other ROG x Evangelion components, making it the cornerstone of the collaboration.

ROG Strix XG27AQM EVA Edition Monitor

The ROG Strix XG27AQM EVA Edition is handsomely clad in the EVA-01’s purple and green colour scheme. With an overclocked refresh rate of 270 Hz and a speedy 0.5 ms (GTG) response time, users will experience an incredibly fluid view. The 27-inch display also covers 97% of the DCI-P3 colour space, offering a full representation of wide-gamut media.

ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 EVA Edition Network Router

The ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 EVA Edition features cutting-edge wireless technology, antennas styled like the EVA-01’s shoulder plates and a control app with a UI design fashioned after a visible A.T. Field.

ROG Delta S EVA Edition Gaming Headset

The ROG Delta S EVA Edition headset encapsulates a hi-fi-grade ESS 9281 QUAD DAC™ and ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Microphone within a lightweight shell that features EVA-inspired purple-and-green aesthetics and customizable RGB lighting. The total package weighs in at just 300 grams, putting comfort on equal par with impactful sonics and pristine comms.

ROG Strix Scope RX EVA Edition Keyboard

The ROG Strix Scope RX EVA Edition proudly wraps an EVA-inspired purple-and-green aluminium case around a full complement of ROG RX optical mechanical switches. This formidable combo consistently provides wobble-free keystrokes, a near-zero debounce delay, plus IP57 waterproofing and dust resistance for reliable deployment throughout prolonged campaigns.

 

ROG Keris Wireless EVA Edition Mouse

The ROG Keris Wireless EVA Edition weighs just 79 grams and sports the EVA-01’s striking green and purple colour scheme. With a 16,000 dpi ROG sensor and ROG push-fit switch sockets, users can aim with extreme precision and customize the amount of trigger force required to deliver a menacing payload.

ROG Scabbard II EVA Edition Mouse Pad

Combining contrasting NERV and EVA-inspired design elements on a nano-coated surface that repels water, oil, and dust, the ROG Scabbard II EVA Edition prominently displays your allegiance and provides a robust foundation for the ROG Keris Wireless EVA Edition mouse.

ROG Strix Arion EVA Edition SSD Enclosure

The ROG Strix Arion EVA Edition portable SSD enclosure features heat protection optimizations and blistering connection speeds, making it ripe for quick data backups and secret missions behind enemy lines.

ROG x EVANGELION T-Shirts and Sweater

The ROG T-Shirt EVA Edition and ROG Sweater EVA Edition are made of cotton for a naturally soft and cool feel, with a reinforced anti-wrinkle neckline and EVA-inspired design. The T-shirts will be available in black or white, and each will feature a different design on the front and back.
