FOR SUPERIOR HOME CINEMA SOUND

LG has unveiled its US$900 (RM3,800) SJ9 sound bar, which seeks to enhance the cinematic experience in your home.

This 5.1.2 channel high-resolution audio equipment boasts Dolby Atmos capability, allowing it to create a superior home cinema audio experience.

Not only does it come with state-of-the-art technology but all of it have also been carefully melded into an incredible design so that you would not find it to be an eyesore, regardless of where it is installed.

In the quest to create powerful and textured sound, the LG SJ9 boasts multiple cutting-edge speakers, including a pair of powerful up-firing speakers for a highly immersive soundfield.

Listeners will feel as though they are surrounded by audio, with the Dolby Atmos mix reproducing all of the audio objects faithfully.

Dolby Atmos has the ability to deliver moving audio which can be placed precisely within a three-dimensional space, as it represents sound as independent objects through the use of sophisticated metadata.

It is compatible with high-quality lossless audio files, as the built-in HiFi DAC processes sounds that were originally recorded in the studio.

Not only that, 4K Pass-Through is also supported by the LG SJ9 for everyone to enjoy pristine audio sans any compromise in image quality.

GLOBAL SMARTPHONE

THE NuAns NEO [Reloaded] global smartphone, currently being developed by Trinity Inc and available on Indiegogo, runs on Android 7.1 Nougat.

In terms of hardware specifications, the device is powered by an unknown processor, although we do know that it features a 5.2-inch full HD display from Sharp that is close to the Galaxy S8’s Infinity Display.

At 428ppi pixel density, the NuAns NEO [Reloaded] is capable of delivering stunning visuals. The display’s surface is protected by the Dragontrail Pro from Asahi Glass, adding a greater degree of durability with an anti-fingerprint coating that suppresses the reflection of light without compromising on transparency.

Its 3,540mAh battery boasts Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, letting you power it up from empty to 70 per cent within an hour. While the 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage are rather disappointing, there is a microSD memory card slot that allows you to have up to 1TB of storage space if the need arises.

At the back is Sony’s 13MP sensor with Phase Detection Autofocus, while the front-facing camera packs an 8MP punch for decent-looking selfies.

Best of all, the NuAns NEO [Reloaded] is dust-proof and water-resistant up to a IP54 standard.

The NuAns NEO [Reloaded] will feature TWOTONE and FLIP cases, depending on which suits your needs and fashion taste.

FIND LOST GADGETS

THE TrackR Pixel is touted as one of the best devices in the personal item management market.

It prides itself in being one of the smallest (5.6mm thin and 26.2mm in diameter) and brightest Bluetooth tracking devices available at the moment.

Not only does it sport a longer range than its predecessors but it is also able to ring louder. The LED light helps you to search for items in pitch black darkness or rummage through your handbag in the cinema while being discreet about it.

The TrackR Pixel has a battery life of slightly more than a year before it requires a replacement and has an expansive Bluetooth range.

Working hand in hand with the TrackR Crowd Locate network, it will certainly be a handy item to have around the house.

Each TrackR Pixel purchase comes with a free key loop and adhesive, letting you attach it to any item which tends to get lost or misplaced.

Should the item be lost outside of range, TrackR’s Crowd Locate Network will kick in, letting you receive anonymous updates of the last-known location of your missing item just in case it comes into contact with another one of the numerous TrackR users who pass by.

You can pick up the TrackR Pixel in black, white, gray, navy blue, red, purple, pink, aqua and TrackR green colours for US$24.99 a piece.
