These are the new tech gadgets to check out for September 2020

Every month, the realm of technology is blessed with new gadgets and products—from wearables and computers to mobile and audio. Some are completely fresh drops while the others are modified or updated versions of existing items. Let’s take a look at the most exciting ones you should definitely check out this month.

1. Sony FE 12-24mm F2.8 G Master

The new addition to Sony’s full-frame lens line-up allows users to emphasise distance and create dynamic perspectives with the ultra-wide 12-millimetre angle of view. Without the need to utilise extremely slow shutter speeds, photographers can use the 12-24-millimetre zoom with a constant F2.8 maximum aperture for night scenes as well as low-light subjects at low sensitivities.

The camera also comes with two Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and three ED glass elements. These components help ensure the maintenance of maximum sharpness. It’s also rather compact—weighing at only 847 grammes. The lightness includes three XA types and a mechanical design featuring high-performance XD Linear Motors.

Price: RM12,999

To make it easier for you to back up high-capacity files to your drive or cloud service account easily, the drive includes backup software. In addition, to help protect valuable content, My Passport SSD has password enabled 256-bit AES hardware encryption. Available colours include Gray, Blue, Red, and Gold.

Price: RM1,999 (2TB)

3. LG NanoCell 8K TV

By applying about one nanometre-sized nanoparticles to filter out impure colours, viewers can expect the purest colours. This includes 33 million pixels providing more density than usual. The brain behind the TV is the α9 GenThree AI processor—comprising of features such as Face Enhancing, AI Brightness Control, AI Sound Pro, and Adaptive Sound Control. Oh, all adjustments are automatic.

Other notable features include the LG ThinQ AI with LG Magic Remote and Hands-Free Voice Control as well as Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos features. In addition, supporting the FreeSync premium technology, the TV is ideal for gaming as well.

Price: RM21,999 (Nano95/65-inch)

4. Dyson Digital Slim Fluffy Pro

Depending on the task, the vacuum has the ability to transform easily from a stick vacuum to a handheld. This means you don’t need more than one machine. Utilising soft woven nylon to capture large debris, the cleaner head is made using high-tensile ABS for strength and lightness. As for fine particles on hard floors, expect the black anti-static carbon fibre filaments to be of great help sweeping them away.

Although it’s small, the vacuum is powerful thanks to the Dyson Hyperdymium motor that has the ability to generate 100 Air Watts of powerful suction. In addition, it only takes 3.5 hours for a full charge with up to 40 minutes of run time.

Price: RM2,799

Preloaded with 41,000 golf courses, features on the watch include PlaysLike Distance, Hazard View, and a Virtual Caddie.
