The entry-level Amazon Kindle e-reader is the perfect gift for your book-loving friends. It matches most of the specs offered by the flagship Paperwhite while still being affordable. One of the major improvements in the new Kindle is the improved resolution of 300ppi. This puts the base variant of the e-reader on par with the likes of Paperwhite and Oasis. The 6.8-inch display is illuminated by 4 LEDs and is encased in a polycarbonate body. Want more? You can even pair this Kindle to your wireless headphones and listen to an audiobook.
iQOO Neo 7 Pro
Price: Rs 35,000
Launched last month, the iQOO Neo 7 Pro could be the best midrange gaming smartphone to release this year. What really puts this smartphone ahead of the competition is the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC under its hood. This is last year’s flagship chipset that is now available in a mid-range smartphone that costs Rs 35,000. The Neo 7 Pro also gets a 6.78-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a 50MP primary camera, a 5,000 mAh battery, 120W fast charging support, and more.
OnePlus Nord Buds 2r
Price: 2,200 on Amazon
Do you have a friend that still hasn’t made the switch to wireless earbuds? The new OnePlus Nord Buds 2r (our review here) will make a great gift. This inexpensive TWS does not compromise on sound quality. The bass-centric audio output is delivered to the listener by 12.4mm titanium drivers. The sound is punchy & detailed and does not distort on higher volumes. There may be cheaper wireless earbuds out there, but none of them can replicate the quality of audio on offer here.
Noise ColorFit Pro 4
Price: Rs 2,800 on Gonoise.com
This one is for all the health nuts. The Noise ColorFit Pro 4 is an efficient smartwatch that tracks all essential health functions and a range of exercises & workouts. The silicone and polycarbonate build adds to the sturdiness of this smartwatch. The 1.72-inch TFT LCD display has a resolution of 356 x 400p and a refresh rate of 60Hz. The Colorfit Pro 4 also supports Bluetooth calling. The heart rate monitor and SpO2 tracker on this smartwatch produce numbers that are comparable to medical-grade equipment. Noise also has a companion app for this smartwatch which can be used for customisation purposes. Check out our review here.

Samsung Galaxy F54
Price: Rs 30,000 on Flipkart
Samsung’s Galaxy F series is known for its camera-centric smartphones. Launched in June, the Samsung Galaxy F54 continues this tradition with the help of its spectacular 108MP primary camera. This sensor captures punchy, vibrant images that could possibly be the best in its category. Samsung’s image processing also pulls its weight on this smartphone. Camera performance aside, the Galaxy F54 is powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos 1380 SoC and is available in a single 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant.
Price: Rs 38,000 on OnePlus.in
OnePlus’ debut tablet is a rock-solid device that gets the basics right while adding its own flair to the Android tablet experience. The 11.6-inch IPS LCD display has a refresh rate of 144Hz and comes with HDR10+ support. Under the hood, the OnePlus Pad is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC. OS duties are handled by Android 13 with Oxygen OS on top. To maximize the functionality of the tablet, OnePlus has also released a Stylo and Keyboard Folio Case for this product.

Truke BTG Storm
Price: Rs 900 on truke.in
Not too long ago, there was a dearth of affordable gaming TWS on the market. Truke has filled a massive void with its range of ultra-affordable TWS. The BTG Storm is a great TWS for gamers who not only want great audio quality and low latency out of their wireless earbuds but also want them to look the part. We reviewed the Truke BTG Storm when it got released and were really impressed by what it has to offer at just Rs 900.
