BURO Gadget Guide: 5 Trailblazing gadgets released in July 2023

Technology moves fast—you blink and then suddenly there’s a bunch of new releases from all the brands you’ve been keeping up with. In case you missed it, we’ve compiled a list of trailblazing tech gadgets that were released this month. From the latest phones to the newest sports watch that will make your game better, here are five releases that caught our eye in July 2023. 



At its recent bi-annual Unpacked event, Samsung introduced a lineup of new gadgets from its Samsung Galaxy line. The collection has evolved tremendously through the years and once again, Samsung has upped the ante with the latest Galaxy Z Flip5, which takes personalisation and self-expression to the next level with the new Flex Window. Now 3.78 times larger than the previous generation, this new feature gives users a wide range of capabilities, including accessing important information at just one glance. Users can view all their widgets easily or switch between them by pinching the screen to activate the Multi Widget View. 

If you’re still worried about the display, fret no more! The Z Flip5 has a new reinforced display and a new shock dispersion layer, and the dual rail structure of the Flex Hinge makes it solid while being able to withstand external and internal impact. The Galaxy Z Flip5 also has Samsung’s most versatile camera experience that allows users to get creative with their angles or take high-quality selfies easily with the rear camera, all thanks to the larger Flex Window. 

Price: RM4,499

Availability: Pre-order from now until 14 August 2023 on the Samsung website 



Prepare yourself for an authentic, immersive sound experience with the latest Nothing Ear (2). Its Hi-Res Audio certification and LHDC 5.0 technology with an 11.6 mm custom driver gives you deep, powerful bass and crystal-clear highs. The new dual chamber design also enhances the overall sound quality with smoother airflow.

Further, the Ear (2) also features the new Advanced Equaliser that lets you customise sound with a higher level of precision. It gives users more freedom to control how they want to hear their music through an intuitive and simple graphical interface. If you need to tune things out and reduce noise, the Nothing Ear (2) enables you to block out ambient noises to enjoy music on a deeper level. 

Price: RM599

Availability: Website and authorised retail partners 


SONY α6700 

Take your visual storytelling to the next level with the new Sony α6700. As the brand’s most advanced APS-C mirrorless camera yet, it combines the innovative still image and video capabilities found in the latest full-frame Alpha™ and Cinema Line series with the compact and lightweight design of the α6000 series. It’s the camera you can take with you anytime and anywhere!

What’s more, the Sony α6700 has highly accurate AI technology. The standard ISO sensitivity spans 100 to 32000 for both stills and movies, allowing high-sensitivity, low-noise shooting. Enhanced colour reproduction ensures subjects like people and plants are captured with natural hues, while Creative Look features allow unique visual expressions.

Price: From RM7,099

Availability: Available for pre-order on the Sony website



No brand does sleek and minimal design like Nothing. The all-new Phone (2) was meticulously engineered for enhanced aesthetics and upgraded technology, such as the ergonomic hands-on experience with a 1 mm thinner midframe and a pillowed glass back. It’s now bigger and better with a 6.7 inch flexible LTPO OLED display with 1600 nits peak pixel brightness that intuitively adapts its 120 Hz refresh rate to preserve power when you’re not on your phone.

In an effort to encourage users to be more present, the Nothing Phone (2) now has a Glyph Interface that provides essential information without the constant need to look at the screen. You can also personalise the light and sequences to your contacts and apps, so you’ll know the exact notification without having to look at your screen. 

There’s no skimping on visuals here either. The Phone (2) has Nothing’s most premium smartphone camera experience to date with a 32 MP front camera, a dual rear camera system that has two advanced 50 MP sensors, with the main sensor upgraded to the Sony IMX890. Packed with a 4700 mAh battery, Phone (2) has lasting battery life to power users through their everyday lives. Plus, it regains 50 per cent power in just under 20 minutes with fast wired charging.

The Approach S70 is Garmin’s premium golf watch that has tools and insights you need to improve your game. It features a super bright and easy-to-read 1.2-inch or 1.4-inch AMOLED touch display for your viewing comfort. The stylish design will blend in all your fits while the lightweight build allows maximum comfort when wearing it. Connect the S70 to your phone to stay updated with notifications or enjoy phone-free listening by downloading your favourite tunes on the watch. 

To help you improve your hits, the S70 also comes with PlaysLike distance feature that lets you know how far each shot is truly playing with yardage adjusted for elevation changes and the Green Contour Data that shows you the direction of a slope so you can play out your approach. 

As it is a sports watch, the Approach S70 comes with an array of health features like wrist-based heart rate, stress tracking, body battery and energy monitoring to ensure that your health is at its best (and what you need to be careful off if it isn’t!). On the smartwatch mode, you’ll get up to 14 days of battery life while the GPS mode gives you up to 15 hours. 

Price: RM3,210
