Review: realme Pad

Published

on

realme as a brand is gaining momentum in the region. The company which started by launching its smartphones and accessories range has now launched its first tablet in the market. Simply called realme Pad, the tablet comes packed in a beautifully designed frame. The tablet measures just 6.9 millimeters in thickness and weighs around 440 grams.

Inside the box, you get the realme Pad, an 18W charger, a quick start guide, a warranty card, a Type-C cable, and a SIM ejector tool. The realme Pad is available in two different colours – Real Grey and Real Gold – the one sent for this review was the Real Gold variant.

On the front, the realme Pad comes with a 10.4-inch WUXGA+ screen that offers a resolution of 2000-by-1200 pixels. The tablet features a nano-edge design that makes for a borderless and more immersive viewing experience when watching movies and playing games.

The display also supports a wide range of modes including Reading Mode, which makes e-reading as close as possible to reading a real book by simulating the texture of a book’s page. The Dark Mode meanwhile makes it easier to browse at night. There is also a Night Mode, which adjusts the screen brightness to a minimum of 2 nits, thus reducing eye fatigue when the lights are out. And finally, there’s a Sunlight Mode, which adjusts the screen’s maximum brightness so you can clearly see the content when outdoors.

On the top edge of the tablet, you will find the volume rockers, dual noise-cancelling microphones, and a dual SIM slot that also takes in a TF card to expand its built-in storage. On the left edge, you will find the power button and the dual speaker grille. On the right edge, you will find the USB Type-C slot, dual speaker grilles, and the 3.5mm audio jack.

The quad-speaker setup on the realme Pad supports Adaptive Surround Sound. You also get support for Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res Audio certification for better audio quality, irrespective of the content being viewed on the realme Pad.

Under the hood, the realme Pad rocks a MediaTek Helio G80 processor, which can reach clock speeds of up to 2.0GHz. You also get a Mali G52 950MHz GPU, which outperforms its predecessor by 20%. The specs are rounded off by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, though there’s another variant available with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space. The internal storage capacity can be expanded to up to 1TB using a TF card in the dual SIM slot.

In terms of imaging, you get an 8MP Ultra Wide-Angle front-facing camera, which features a 105° ultra wide-angle. This can come in handy for shooting selfies or attending video calls. The Dual Mic Noise Cancellation further enhances your conversation. There is also an 8MP HD camera on the rear of the tablet.

realme Pad also comes packed with a 7100mAh large battery, which supports 18W Quick Charge and reverse charging. During our tests, we were able to clock a battery life of about 10 hours on a single charge.

The realme Pad is powered by the new realme UI for Pad, based on Android 11. The new UI offers a wholesome experience and is quite intuitive to use. You also get Multi-Window Mode, which can make two apps run simultaneously. That means you can multitask with ease, browsing the web and chatting with friends at the same time.

The realme Pad also comes with the Smart Connect feature. With this feature, you can use your realme Band/Watch to unlock your realme Pad without having to type a password. Nearby Share allows your phone and tablet to share the files and images immediately, and Open-up Auto Connection connects your earphones to the Pad automatically when they’re close by. In addition, cast screen features can cast content from your Pad to your TV, without much hassle.

The overall performance of the realme Pad was quite good. The user experience is very good and we did not encounter any lags or stutters while switching between multiple open app windows. It also offers a fantastic build quality, an excellent screen, very good speakers, LTE connectivity, and an option to expand the internal storage space. For a price of AED 899, the realme Pad is definitely a tablet that we wholeheartedly recommend.

Price: AED 899 (Available for AED 799 right now with a free realme Techlife tablet cover as part of Noon.com’s back-to-school offer)

Lenovo Launches New Yoga PCs

Published

on

Lenovo has launched its next generation of premium, ultra-slim Windows 11 Yoga laptops. Speaking at the launch event, General Manager for Lenovo GULF, Mohammed Hilili said, “We’ve designed and engineered the new Yoga PCs with smarter features and an even more premium user experience to help people pursue their ambitions, relax, and get things done in their own way. Our inspiration behind the new lineup was driven by the hybrid life becoming the norm and our consumers demanding more of their devices to suit their needs. Our goal is to deliver devices that truly empower our users to consume, create, and collaborate on their own terms. This launch also gave us a unique opportunity to collaborate with local UAE talent to showcase the true capabilities of the lineup.”

The new Yoga line offers refreshes of the 14-inch and 16-inch Yoga Slim 7 Pro (known as Lenovo Slim 7 in the U.S.), the Yoga Slim 7i Pro (known as the Lenovo Slim 7i in the U.S.), and the Yoga 7. To meet the needs of the new hybrid home office, Lenovo has also announced today the new Yoga AIO 7, a new 4K 27-inch desktop PC that features an ergonomic hinge for endless adaptability, collaboration across multiple devices, and modern engineering for the contemporary home.

Made to merge unbelievable portability and versatility with more power, Lenovo’s Yoga 2-in-1 convertible laptops were pioneers in opening possibilities for users to flip and fold from work to play. The Yoga sub-brand has since expanded to encompass even more premium consumer devices that now span multiple form factors, including ultra-slim clamshell laptops, desktop computers, Chromebooks, and tablets.

In today’s new hybrid environment, the new generation of Yoga devices is designed to help people thrive against new challenges and opportunities in the way they connect, consume, create, and collaborate from the home, school, office, and beyond – giving users the tools to do more and the freedom to be themselves. Lenovo’s new Yoga Slim line exemplifies the pinnacle of this performance and portability – defined by its refined craftsmanship, premium experiences, and bold innovation. These ultra-slim laptops integrate a comfortable edge design with humanizing soft contours for easier and more comfortable mobility and handling.

They’re also crafted for premium experiences, powered by Lenovo’s X Power, a newly defined set of features committed to better-upgraded performance. To add, they’re enhanced by Lenovo’s show-stopping PureSight displays that set a new standard of premium features for a sharper, faster, more realistic, Eyesafe-certified visual experience. The Yoga Slim line stands for premium, portable performance – empowering users to adapt to hybrid living through smarter performance, sensing, security, and recognition capabilities – all made possible by the Lenovo A.I. Engine+.

This A.I. engine’s smart performance can anticipate the user’s power or battery needs based on what they’re doing, while Lenovo Intelligent Sense and Integrated Security – also part of Lenovo A.I. Engine+ – help keep work and play on the Yoga seamless and safer. Consumers can also attach Lenovo’s latest advanced support offering Premium Care Plus for an elevated service experience. This includes personalized hardware and software support from a global network of elite technicians along with accidental damage protection, sealed battery warranty, smart PC performance solutions, and data migration assistance – adding a level of protection and care to keep users productive even when the unexpected occurs.

For those who would like to help the environment, Lenovo’s CO2 Offset Service is a simple way of offsetting carbon emissions, allowing consumers to support one of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) projects.

  • The Lenovo Yoga Slim 9 will start from AED 7299
  • The Lenovo Yoga 9 will start from AED 7099

Wacom Intros Cintiq Pro 27 Pen Display in the Region

Published

on

Wacom has launched the Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 pen display designed for harmony in a premium launch event held in the UAE’s first digital art theatre ToDA in Dubai. Cintiq Pro 27 is a creative instrument defined and developed by members of the global art and design community in conjunction with Wacom’s product teams to deliver the most immersive and stable pen-on-screen experience to date.

Purpose-built for creative professionals such as 2D illustrators, 3D modelers, animators, game developers, virtual production artists, and so on, the Cintiq Pro 27’s large digital canvas offers seamless interaction with creative software applications and provides the comfort and ease of use synonymous with all Wacom devices. The new 27-inch Cintiq Pro represents a major step forward in virtually all categories that matter to digital pen display users, such as improved pen performance and multi-touch, better ergonomics, faster refresh rates, vivid and accurate color as well as a focus on comfort and custom options.

Additionally, users will appreciate the modern look, lightweight and thin 27” screen that sports a smaller footprint than its Cintiq Pro 24 sibling. Wacom’s latest pen display joins the Cintiq Pro 16 and Cintiq Pro 24 models to form a comprehensive range of sizes for every need and workspace.

“The emphasis on cloud computing and the dependencies placed on professional freelance and studio artists to collaborate freely, quickly, and efficiently on a global scale requires a multi-tasking, do-it-all creative tool,” says Faik Karaoglu, Executive Vice President of Wacom’s Branded Business Group. “With the new Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 creative professionals can count on intuitive and natural-feeling pen and touch input, extremely accurate, factory-calibrated color, faster refresh, and other design features that allow users to comfortably and confidently produce and share work across the creative pipeline.”

The pen-on-screen experience on the Cintiq Pro 27 has been vastly improved with the introduction of the Pro Pen 3. Users now have the ability to change the weight, barrel size, and center of gravity of the pen with interchangeable components that come with the pen. In addition, the Pro Pen 3 has enhanced tilt recognition and still features Wacom’s renowned EMR (Electro-Magnetic Resonance) technology with 8,192 levels of pressure and battery-free operation.

Multi-touch also comes standard and is extremely valuable for an artist’s non-dominant hand when working in programs, especially 3D applications, requiring one to pinch, zoom and rotate a model or sculpture while working with the pen. For those working in a virtual production environment, the ten-point selective touch allows users to precisely manipulate on-screen sliders and other navigable features for an extremely efficient workflow.

The Cintiq Pro 27’s new display features virtually no parallax and latency with a much-improved refresh rate of 120Hz, allowing the cursor to track twice as fast as previous models. It is equipped with HLG (hybrid log-gamma) and the PQ (perceptual quantization) curve for displaying and editing HDR (high dynamic range) video content. Delivering brilliant 4k resolution in 10-bit colour, 98% DCI-P3 (Digital Cinema Initiatives – Protocol 3), the film industry’s color standard, as well as 99% Adobe RGB colour accuracy, users will delight in the fidelity of the display and the true-to-life visual experience.

The display is not only Pantone validated, but also Pantone SkinTone validated, meeting the Pantone standard for accurately displaying the entire range of human skin tones. For users that enjoy moving their most commonly used keyboard shortcuts closer to their actual workspace, grip-style ExpressKeys, eight in total, four on each side, have been added to the back of the display for easy, ergonomic access.

The Cintiq’s new stand matches the modern, sleek design of the new pen display. It’s fully adjustable to meet virtually any working position and even supports +/- 20 degrees of screen rotation. For users seeking another stand option, the display does have VESA mounts for other OEM stands. “Professional content creators in media and entertainment, industrial design and education can all benefit from a tool that’s fit to work the way they want to work,” concluded Karaoglu. “Whether illustrating in 2D, sculpting in 3D, or building a virtual production solution, everyone has their own way of working and we are excited to be introducing the Cintiq Pro 27 to the creative community.”
