Here’s a round up of new tech released in Thailand this week – 05 March 2018


A scale for everything

With Huawei’s Smart Scale, you can monitor not only your weight but up to nine different body components – bodyfat and bodywater percentages, BMI, muscle and mass, bone mass, protein, visceral fat and BMA – all at the same time. Get one from the Huawei store on Lazada for Bt2,990.

Let Acer take your notes

Acer’s Swift 5 notebook computer is powered by an eighth-generation Intel Core i78550U processor. You get eight gigabytes of DDR3 RAM and 512GB on the SSD drive, a 14-inch Full HD display on the multi-touch screen and Intel UHD Graphics 620. Weighing just 970 grams, it sells for Bt42,990.

Great deal on a phone

The A71 (2018) smartphone from Oppo captures beautiful shots using AI Beauty Recognition technology in its 5MP front camera and 13MP rear camera. The 5.2-inch display is 1,280×720-pixel resolution. With a monthly package from AIS starting at Bt499, the A71 can be purchased for Bt1,990 instead of the usual Bt5,990.

Top-flight photography

The Fujifilm XA5 mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera boasting a retro design is capable of shooting 4K video. There’s a 24-megapixel APSC image sensor, and, for selfies, a 180-degree-tilting LCD and Portrait Enhancement. With a 1545mm kit lens, it retails for Bt21,990.

Keep to the Beats

Beats Pill+ (plus, minus) Neighbourhood Collection Bluetooth speaker has a stereo-active two-way crossover system for optimised sound fields, dynamic range and terrific clarity. It’s great for any type of music, the interface is simple and intuitive and you can play, pause and skip tracks and handle phone calls with a touch of the “b” button. It’s in the Apple online store for Bt8,900.
