This Week’s Top 5 New Gadgets That Aren’t the iPhone 13

Apple’s iPhone 13 took up a lot of space this week, but there are also plenty of other gadgets.

iPhone 13

Apple’s iPhone 13 presentation on Tuesday garnered many headlines, including Gear Patrol. If you haven’t heard about it anyway, here you can find all the key things regarding iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7, and new iPads.

But! This week, Apple items haven’t been the only ones to come out! Here are the five big announcements and releases you want to make beneath the radar.

01. Sonos Beam (Gen 2)

Sonos Beam (Gen 2)

On Tuesday, Sonos introduced its second generation Sonos Beam soundbar which is noted as a Dolby Atmos sound bar with a $500 mark of only $449. At half the flagship price Sonos Arc (now $900 following a price increase affecting a number of Sonos speakers) the Beam offers a relatively affordable budget entry into Dolby Atmos, or those with small rooms. Without the upward drivers of the Arc, it won’t have the same sound quality (or amount), but for its size and price it’s certainly a worthwhile add-on to a lot of Sonos.

Price: $449

02. LG’s 325-inch DVLED TV

LG's 325-inch DVLED TV

If you want a home theatre, look no further than LG’s newest gargantuan display, which actually puts the “theater” into home theater. Fewer than a number of discreet items and more than a possibility to buy custom screens, LG’s LED Extreme Home Cinema Displays range between 2K to 8K and 108 inches to 325 inches in resolution — 9 feet to over 27 feet. How much is it costing? Well, if you’ve got to ask… (A little over a mil and a half.)

Price: Too expensive, honestly.

03. Xiaomi 11T Pro

Xiaomi 11T Pro

If you live here in the United States, you won’t have easy time putting your hands on the latest flagship from Xiaomi, but it is worth mentioning whether for no purpose other than how it charges. The 11T Pro comes with a 120W charger, which Xiaomi claims will charge the 5,000-mAh battery in around 17 minutes from 0 to 100. Apple’s MagSafe chargers pump juice at a pace of less than one tenth: 15W on the high end.

Now you need your battery to go in 17 minutes from 0-100? Perhaps not. Is the battery good? Probably not, then. Is it like hell impressive? Well, duh. Well, duh.

Price: $768 more

04. Canon EOS R3

Canon EOS R3

No, it’s not for everybody, but Canons new not-quite-flagship EOS R3 sports-focused photography equipment is one remarkable bit of technology. The EOS R3 high-end mirrorless full-frame contains a 24-MP CMOS sensor, but its principal draw is arguably the Canon Duel Pixel AF system with the ability to shoot up to 30 frames a second (RAW!) together with an electronic shutter.

Price: $5,999

05. GoPro Hero 10 Black

GoPro Hero 10 Black

The latest GoPro cam for action carries a new, domestic GP2 processor, a follow-up to the company’s 2017 GP1 microprocessor. GoPro acknowledges upgrading the ability of Hero 10 Black to shoot 5.3K on 60 frame per second, 4K on 120 frame per second, and 2.7K on 240 frames per second. The Hero 10 Black cloud capabilities are also a significant component of the release: When connected to the power, GoPro may upload your footage to a cloud account automatically – when you pay $5 a months or $50 a year to subscribe. You can purchase it for $400 with a one-year membership to get hooked, if you buy it from GoPro. Or you can go without a sub and get it for a further $100. Yeah, it’s strange.

Price: $400 subscribed, $500 without subscription
