New in tech this October: Wonder Tech Talk discusses the realme 5 Series and Instax mini Link
We're ushering in the month of October with some new tech releases—and they won't break the bank! From a high-tier smartphone capable of delivering the best e-gaming experience to a customizable printer for your phone, we're riddled with excitement.
realme 5 Series
E-gaming made even easier
Realme rapidly expands its reach in the country making its presence felt with record-breaking sales—while only being in the Philippines for nine months. The brand continues to offer affordable entry-level smartphones targeted to the youth. This month ushers the era of quad cameras with the realme5 and realme 5 Pro, which feature powerful processors and huge-capacity batteries.
Gaming is made powerful with the Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 665 and Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 712 AIE processors, which both deliver smooth frame rates, rapid operations, surround sound and HD true images. This ensures the best gaming experience for users.
Shoot like a pro with a 48MP AI Quad Camera and ultra-wide angle and clear lens, allowing users to take photos from different perspectives. Say goodbye to grain during low-lit scenarios with the Nightscape mode. Record up to 4K videos with the Electric Image Stabilization (EIS) feature.
The realme 5 (in either Crystal Blue and Crystal Purple) is available for the competitive prices of P6,990 to P9,990 while the realme 5 Pro (in Crystal Green or Sparkling Blue) is available at P11,990 to P13,990.
Instax mini Link
For your portable printing photo needs
The lightest smartphone printer in the market is the new Instax mini Link, retailing for P6,999. Created for convenience, the compact printer weights at 200g. Produce high-quality Instax prints by using the Instax mini Link app and choose from a variety of frames. Users have access to customization tools to enhance images, easily rotate and adjust the brightness of photos.
With other exciting features like the compatibility checker, examine compatibility between you and a “friend” (wink). Let friends send their favorite photos—from up to five smartphones—and compile it in a single print. Additionally, it has motion sense features for users to remotely shoot photos from their own phones. It's available in three colors: Ash White, Dusky Pink and Dark Denim.
This month is all about upping the ante on smartphone photography. What will next month bring?
