Discovering cool new technology is an exciting prospect! Each month we take a look at some of the latest tech products available from JB Hi-Fi.
What: Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G
Why: Samsung’s new Galaxy Fan Edition (FE) smartphones feature a generous 6.4″ Full HD AMOLED display and a powerful processor for peak performance. The versatile and intelligent Pro Grade triple camera system incorporates a 12MP wide-angle, 12MP ultra-wide and 8MP telephoto lens, plus 32MP front-facing camera. And 4K video dual recording makes this an ideal smartphone for vloggers. The 4,500mAh battery will last all day long, and super-fast wireless charging delivers a full charge in mere minutes. Internal storage is also generous – choose from 128GB or 256GB models – and there’s a colour to suit all tastes: graphite, lavender, olive and white.
Who: The flagship smartphone features and functionality that Galaxy fans love and want in an affordably priced, premium Android device.
What: Jabra Elite 4 Active ACN true wireless in-ear headphones
Why: Health and fitness are front and centre during the warmer months, and there’s nothing quite like soundtracking a workout with a good set of earbuds. The Elite 4 Actives combine great, customisable sound with an IP57 rating to protect them against sweat. But the real trump card here is Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). Why is ANC a big deal? It’s rare to find the technology in a pair of earbuds at this price point. There are seven hours of battery life in the buds and then a further 28 hours in the charging case.
Who: Those looking to get active with a reliable set of quality earbuds that won’t break the bank.
What: Garmin Fenix 7 Sports Watch Series
Why: Garmin’s new Fenix 7 series – designed for a plethora of outdoor sports and activities – includes the Fenix 7 and its solar-powered siblings, the 7 Solar, 7 Sapphire Solar and the 7X. The 7 family comes loaded with cutting edge training features and sports apps, 24/7 health and wellbeing monitoring, enhanced fitness metrics, connected smart features, and improved GPS with multi-band GNSS satellite tracking (on the Sapphire Solar editions). Other new additions include Multicontinent TopoMaps and pre-loaded SkiView resort and run locator. A 10ATM water rating means it’s good for swimming, surfing and snorkeling too.
Who:Dedicated outdoor sporting types and avid adventurers will find everything they need right at their wrist – and then some – with one of Garmin’s feature-packed Fenix 7 sports watches.
What: Samsung Freestyle Portable Smart FHD Projector
Why: The Samsung Freestyle combines classic LED projection technology, smart speaker and lighting capabilities into one ultra-portable package. Instant, no-fuss set-up and autofocusing means it’s ready to go right out of the box! The articulated cradle base gives users the option to adjust the angle and point-and-project pretty much anywhere, without the need for a dedicated screen. Aim it at the ceiling to binge-watch in bed – the versatile Freestyle features built-in smart TV streaming apps, web browsing and also mirroring and casting, along with a TV tuner for free-to-air channels. And the screen size can be customised to suit your viewing area, from a smallish 30″ right up to a cinematic 100″ for movies.
Who: A conveniently portable projector that can be wherever you go, from the bedroom, backyard and balcony, to a campsite in the bush.
