Published

on

HONOR has announced the launch of the HONOR Magic V, its first 5G foldable flagship smartphone, boasting industry-leading design, a revolutionary display, and dynamic performance powered by the all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Featuring an advanced ultra slim floating waterdrop hinge, a wider exterior display, and the latest Magic UI 6.0, the HONOR Magic V takes a huge leap forward in innovative foldable smartphone design, with a range of features and functionality that set it apart from existing foldable on the market. The HONOR Magic V will be available in China.

“We are thrilled to launch our first 5G foldable flagship, the HONOR Magic V, which demonstrates our expertise and innovation in system design and our commitment to always delivering a best-in-class user experience,” said George Zhao, CEO of HONOR Device Co, Ltd. “HONOR has strong ambitions to become the top-performing smartphone brand in the premium foldable market and we are confident our first flagship foldable will be very competitive compared with existing models.”

Designed using an advanced waterdrop hinge technology that’s the slimmest compared to similar products in the market, the HONOR Magic V features an industry-leading symmetrical body, delivering a transformational user experience and creating a new benchmark in foldable smartphone design. The HONOR Magic V boasts a 6.45-inch 44° curved OLED display when folded, achieving a wider 21.3:9 aspect ratio which sets it apart from other foldable on the market.

This makes the device exceptionally user-friendly and functional, as the screen functions as a traditional smartphone, rather than appearing long and narrow. Equipped with an innovative waterdrop hinge, the HONOR Magic V unfolds to an extra-wide 7.9-inch creaseless display, delivering a more immersive tablet-like experience that is ideal for viewing content, multi-tasking, and increasing productivity while working.

The screens on the HONOR Magic V support a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and deliver up to 1.07 billion colors, enabling users to enjoy a wide range of stunning colors and visuals in vivid clarity. With a screen refresh rate of up to 120Hz, viewers are guaranteed an immersive entertainment experience no matter whether watching movies, browsing the web, or gaming. The HONOR Magic V is the first foldable smartphone to receive the IMAX Enhanced certification. Crafted with high-strength titanium alloy, zirconium liquid metals, and high-strength carbon fibers which reduce the density of the device, the HONOR Magic V is extremely lightweight and balanced when held in the palm of a hand, enabling users to explore its full potential and functionality, whether folded or unfolded.

The HONOR Magic V is the first foldable smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm’s all-new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 5G processor, delivering outstanding flagship performance. Backed by the latest Adreno GPU, the HONOR Magic V delivers an increase in GPU performance of 30 percent compared with the previous generation, enabling more productivity at faster speeds. The HONOR Magic V is also equipped with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, increasing overall processing speeds and storage capacity.

Ensuring users can enjoy uninterrupted connectivity and network performance when switching between Wi-Fi and cellular networks, the HONOR Magic V supports the new LINK Turbo X, offering blistering download speeds. The HONOR Magic V has an intelligent cooling system comprising the latest third generation graphene and an AI intelligent thermal management system to cool down the phone more effectively while maintaining efficiency.

HONOR continues to make advancements in imaging with the HONOR Magic V, which features a quad-camera array powered by AI with a 50MP rear camera and a 42MP front camera that delivers stunning photography and videography in three modes – Night, HDR, Zoom. Supported by HONOR Image Engine, an advanced imaging system enhanced by AI, the HONOR Magic V delivers best-in-class multi-camera computational photography every time, no matter where you are or what you are shooting.

Debuting the latest HONOR Magic UI 6.0, the HONOR Magic V offers a range of enhanced, customized features to provide a smart life experience. Magic UI 6.0 comes with HONOR’s AI Engine, Magic Live. Through context awareness, profile prediction, and a large knowledge graph, Magic Live gives the HONOR Magic V the ability to act as a personal assistant, intelligently learning a user’s habits and behaviors to provide tailored recommendations, for example, travel reminders such as check-in times and boarding gate updates. Magic Live will become even more intelligent in the future, supporting the user in scenarios such as office work, study, health and fitness, lifestyle services, and many more.

In addition, the HONOR Magic V supports Multi-Windows, allowing the screen to split into multiple windows and enabling users to enjoy different types of content at the same time and customize and arrange them in their preferred style. Thanks to its AI Smart Intelligent System, the HONOR Magic V automatically detects and recommends content for Multi-Windows based on usage, enabling enhanced personalization and entertainment.

Equipped with a dual-security system (HTEE+QTEE), the HONOR Magic V will be able to meet security requirements for key services all over the world. The HONOR Magic V also has an independent security chip to deliver maximum security for passwords and biometrics like fingerprints. Featuring a dual-circuit battery design, the HONOR Magic V is powered by a whopping 4,750mAh battery for all-day use. The HONOR Magic V supports 66W HONOR SuperCharge, enabling the battery to be juiced up to 50 percent within just 15 minutes.

HONOR Magic V is available in three stunning colours: Black, Space Silver, and Burnt Orange.

Review of the Amazfit GTR 3 Smartwatch in UAE

Published

on

Huami’s new Amazfit GTR 3 is a follow-up to its popular GTR 2 smartwatch. The new GTR 3 offers lots of bells and whistles without burning a hole in your pocket. The smartwatch comes packed in very modest packaging, which includes the watch itself, along with the charger, and a quick start guide.

The watch itself is quite sleek and lightweight – the company has used durable aircraft-grade aluminum alloy to build the device. The watch comes with a 1.39-inch AMOLED display that offers a pixel density of 326-PPI. The display itself is of very good quality and it makes everything look really nice on the watch face – whether it is viewing the stats or shuffling through menu options.

The Amazfit GTR 3 boasts a 66% screen-to-body ratio, and is visible even under bright sunlight, thanks to the 1000 nits of brightness. To personalise the watch, you can choose from over 100 watch faces, including 15 animated watch faces, and 8 editable watch faces.

Though the Amazfit GTR 3 runs on its own operating system called Zepp OS, it is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. In order to connect and set up the smartwatch, you will need to install the Zapp app onto your smartphone. Next, log into your Zepp account or create a new one if you don’t already have one.

Once that is done, the app will ask you to complete your profile. After that, go to the “Profile” tab on the Zepp app, and click “Add” in the “My devices” section. The app will then ask to scan the QR code displayed on the GTR 3 and then proceed to connect and set it up.

The overall design of the Amazfit GTR 3 is quite top-notch. On the right side of the watchcase, you get a rotatable crown, which when pressed, brings up the main menu screen. You can then rotate the crown to shuffle through the menu options on the watch’s interface. There is also a button next to the crown, which when pressed, brings up the workout menu.

There are over 150+ sports modes that include multiple activities within running and walking, cycling, swimming, outdoor workouts, indoor sports, dance, combat sports, ball sports, winter sports, water sports, and more. The Amazfit GTR 3 also comes with a water-resistance grade of 5 ATM – so you can go for a swim without any worry.

The Amazfit GTR 3 offers a treasure trove of health tracking features. I was particularly impressed by the “One-tap Measuring” feature, which tests four health metrics in one tap. In 45 seconds, you can measure your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, stress level, and breathing rate. The watch also offers 24-hour monitoring of blood-oxygen levels.

In addition, you also get all-day heart rate monitoring, even when you go for a swim. The GTR 3 alerts you for abnormally high or low heart rates and tracks heart rate zones to optimise your workouts. The watch can also track and log PAI health assessments. PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence) is a science-backed health score that measures the heart health impact of physical activity.

What’s more, you also get in-depth monitoring of sleep and sleep breathing quality metrics. The Amazfit GTR 3 also tracks stress levels and female cycles, so you are in control of your health stats. The female cycle tracking feature can predict upcoming menstrual and fertile periods, too.

For outdoor activities, the Amazfit GTR 3 can track your route effectively since it supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BDS, and QZSS satellite navigation systems. It also comes with online and offline voice assistants powered by Alexa and an Offline Voice Assistant.

For a price of AED 659, the Amazfit GTR 3 comes across as an amazing (pun unintended) value for money smartwatch that also doubles up as a fitness tracker. The GTR 3 offers lots of features found on most flagship smartwatches out there on the market, but at a very pocket-friendly price. The Amazfit GTR 3 thus walks away with the Gadget Voize Editors’ Choice award.

Price: AED 659

Published

on

Logitech has introduced the new Signature M650 wireless and Signature M650 for Business mouse, a comfortable and personalised mouse with two different sizes and a left-handed option, offering a better experience for more people. The wireless mouse is designed to upgrade any desk setup and improve the overall work experience with features like SmartWheel scrolling, nearly silent clicks, and a contoured comfort design that enables faster, more comfortable work than ever before.

“There are more than a billion knowledge workers in the world, and around half of them don’t use a mouse or have an entry-level or corded mouse with limited functions,” said Art O’Gnimh, vice president of the mainstream business for creativity and productivity at Logitech. “The Signature M650 offers a true Logitech signature experience with simple productivity functions that make working all day easier and faster.”

Whether working on a document or browsing through a website, the Signature M650’s SmartWheel helps to deliver precision when needed and speed in an instant. The Signature M650 and larger size Signature M650 L also feature SilentTouch technology, reducing click noise by 90% compared to the Logitech M185 Mouse, ideal when clicking during a video call. Enjoy a strong wireless connection and a battery that lasts up to two years, giving you complete peace of mind.

With two sizes and a left-handed option, a contoured shape, a soft thumb area, and a rubber side grip, the Signature M650 inclusive design allows you to work comfortably for extended hours and gives you the ability to customize the side buttons to favorite shortcuts with Logitech Options+. The Signature M650, available in off-white, graphite, and rose, works with Windows, macOS, Linux, Chrome OS, ipadOS, and Android operating systems. Connect in an instant via Bluetooth Low Energy or Logi Bolt USB receiver.

Sustainable design considers environmental and social impacts from the moment raw materials are sourced right through to end-of-life. At Logitech, products are designed to deliver great user experiences and minimize environmental footprint, which is why a portion of the Signature M650’s plastic parts are made from post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic – 64% for the graphite, 26% for off white and 26% for rose.

The Signature M650 mice will be available in January 2022 on Logitech.com and at other global retailers. The suggested retail price for the Signature M650 and larger-sized Signature M650 L is $39.99.

Building on the success of the world’s first Healthable hearing aid, Livio AI and Livio Edge AI, Starkey has unveiled Evolv AI in UAE, the company’s latest hearing aid to set the stage for an entirely new hearing ecosystem. The company unveiled Evolv AI at the 12th Emirates Otorhinolaryngology Audiology and Communication Disorders Congress EROC 2022 at the Intercontinental Hotel, Dubai Festival City. Starkey is leading the hearing industry into a new era with bold technology that will transform patient’s relationships with their hearing aids.

“In 2018, we reinvented the hearing aid with Livio AI. Today, the smartest hearing aid just got smarter. For example, every single hour, an Evolv AI hearing device will make 55 million adjustments – automatically. We are delighted to bring this latest AI-enabled hearing aid to UAE through the EROC Congress,” said Giscard Bechara, Director, Starkey MEA FZCO, Dubai, UAE.

Evolv AI is built on Starkey Sound™, a ground-breaking technology created by years of refining Starkey’s research and science-based algorithms to power high-fidelity audio, which is modeled after the human auditory system. Like the brain, Starkey Sound is designed to automatically suppress background noise and designed to increase speech audibility and intelligibility with machine learning technology.

As the world leader in custom manufacturing, Starkey is also proud to introduce the industry’s smallest 2.4 GHz CIC, as part of the Evolv AI line of hearing aids. “At Starkey, Chairman Bill Austin pioneered the concept that designing, and manufacturing hearing aids require excellence. Our researchers, engineers, and manufacturing teams have continued that long-standing tradition of handcrafted excellence by dedicating themselves to creating smaller, more powerful, and longer-lasting devices every single day. Evolv AI certainly leads the way in sound quality, but its ease of use is truly game-changing,” added Giscard.

Additional features of the Evolv AI product family include a 40% reduction in noise energy compared to our previous technology, additional refinement of Edge Mode, Fall Alert, and Voice Reminders at all technology tiers, Thrive usability enhancements, and TeleHear first and follow-up fit additions. Furthermore, surface NanoShield helps protect hearing aids from moisture.

The combination of these features creates an effortless hearing experience for users. Evolv AI’s always-on and always automatic approach delivers realistic and genuine sound quality in every environment, without the need to do anything extra. “At Starkey, Hear Better, Live Better is much more than a tagline. It’s our commitment to you to help your patients live better through better hearing. We can’t wait for you to see how Evolv AI does that, in a way that is effortless out in the real world. We are proud to be leading the hearing aids industry at the speed of innovation,” concluded Giscard.
