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.
Why: The top of the range LED from Samsung is sure to redefine your relationship with a big screen. Gone are the days when the TV sat passively on standby. The Ambient Mode turns the blank screen into a stunning personal display – be it high-res art pieces, holiday snaps or precious family moments. And with its Quantum Dot technology and Direct Full Array lighting system, your viewing experience will be top of the class. Whether you’re a sports buff or enjoy video games, Samsung’s Motion Rate delivers the clarity required to fully immerse you in the action.
Who: Those looking for a big TV that’s best in show and so much more. Turn your wall into a gallery, and a Saturday movie night into a gold class experience.
Why: Samsung’s Galaxy tablets are at the top of the tree for Android users and there’s a new kid in town at JB. The 11-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 runs on Android 10 and has an LCD display, a faster processor, and a 120Hz refresh rate. The bottom of the S7 features a USB-C port and the tablet comes with an S-pen for artists, designers, or keeping abreast of the workflow. There’s a 13mp main camera, a 5mp ultra-wide camera, and an 8mp selfie camera on the front, plus quad speakers. And a big battery life will give you a purported 15 hours of playback.
Who: If you’re looking for a solid alternative to the iPad, you’ve found it.
What: Samsung Galaxy 3 Watch
Why: The first thing that strikes you about the new Galaxy 3 watch is the aesthetic – the big 45mm face is finished in an alluring-sounding shade of noir: Mystic Black. A slim bezel maximises the watch face – that can incidentally be customised with pre-installed or downloadable faces – while Samsung has eschewed the plastic strap generally associated with smart/sports watches for fetching black leather. Users navigate via touch control or twisting the bezel, calls can be taken with the inclusion of a speaker and microphone, and for the active, there’s an abundance of sports tracking options and the watch is waterproofed up to 50m.
Who: Anybody who appreciates a gorgeous looking watch with full functionality.
Why: The affordable MSI Modern 15 comes with 10th generation Intel Core i7 and SSD delivery for super fast performance, even when you’re handling multiple workloads. Boosted with an Nvidia GeForce MX250 GPU, the Modern 15 is much more than an office machine. Graphic design and video editing will be strain-free, plus you’ll find it’s well up to the task for quality gaming. MSI’s Cooler Boost 3 Technology, with two dedicated fans and three heat pipes, will keep things cool even during heavy usage. The Modern 15 has a sandblast finish, or you can opt for the brushed finish in space gray or onyx black. A take anywhere that’s appealing inside and out.
Who: If you want a 9-to-5 machine that’s also ready to play when it gets dark, the Modern 15 lets you do both with ease.
