This month, we have seen the release of some truly innovative and practical gadgets that are perfect for urban dwellers. These gadgets not only make your lives easier and more convenient but also add a touch of style to your everyday routine. From smartphones to wireless earbuds, explore the five new gadgets on our radar for this edition of the BURO Gadget Guide.


Oppo Find N2 Flip

This new flagship phone has the largest cover screen of any flip phone on the market, featuring powerful widgets that help users stay on top of their notifications while being big enough to take photos so there’s no need to flip your phone constantly. Not to mention, its flagship camera system is equipped with a Sony IMX890 sensor, MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ power, ultra-fast dual-SIM 5G connectivity, as well as best-in-class charging speeds and battery life.

The Find N2 Flip’s New Generation Flexion Hinge opens to a robust, folding screen with an incredibly subtle crease while being compact and light, with a unique micro-etched wave pattern across the hinge that adds to its beauty. ICYMI, the phone is certified to withstand over 400,000 folds and unfolds, and is tested up to 100,000 times at 50 degrees Celsius, 95 per cent humidity, and -20 degrees Celsius. Plus, with the FlexForm Mode, the phone can hold its position mid-fold—turning into a tripod-steady, hands-free camera between 45 and 110 degrees for waist-level dynamic angles.

Co-developed with the legendary camera manufacturer Hasselblad, the phone camera has the capability to capture pro-grade colours with the Professional Mode, and its unique XPAN mode freezes time in a wide, cinematic frame. It’s a phone to keep in mind if you’re looking for something pocket-friendly, with long battery life and great cameras too.
