Insta360 One X2 Revealed

Insta360 just revealed the successor the the One X – the One X2.

The new 360 camera is now rugged and water-proof rated. Battery life is extended to 1630mAh (from 1050mAh on the One X) which should last you more since the X2 also has a built in display.

Shot Lab quick edits has also been added with new features. One curious mode is the Ghost Town – which makes any populated shot look like it doesn't have any people on it.

One nice addition on the X2 is that it could be used as a 360 webcam so it should work with Zoom, Teams and other video chat platforms. Perfect for those working at remotely.

Price starts at $510 for the standalone (or around 25,000 Philippine Pesos).

Head over to their website for the complete spec and kit selections:

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 Price and Pre-order

Should the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra be the last Galaxy Note phone?

Samsung Philippines just announced the local availability, pricing and pre-order of the 2nd-gen Galaxy Fold – The Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G (that’s a pretty long name)

Initial rollout price in the Philippines is 109,990 Pesos. It might seem much at first but considering how the first-generation Fold has dropped its price in the recent months, you might be advised to wait if you’re still on the fence.

For those early adopters – Samsung is having a preorder bundle on the Samsung Online Store that seems to justify the high asking price as you’ll be getting the following:

  • 45mm Galaxy Watch 3 Stainless Steel
  • Extra 12 months of Samsung Care+
  • Additional 10,000 main unit token discount
  • 2,000 pesos E-voucher for case accessory

Samsung Experience Stores and Authorized Resellers would have this pre-order bundle:

  • 55-inch Crystal UHD Smart TV - TU6900
  • Extra 12 months of Samsung Care+
  • 2,000 pesos E-voucher for accessories

For me, I’d rather they just allow these bundles as cash discounts to slash the prices off the Fold 2 itself. Pre-order period starts on September 11.

So will you be getting one?

    Preview: Boundary Supply’s Errant Backpack

    Just want to share a brief showcase of these functional tech pack from Boundary Supply – The Errant Pack. It’s by far not the perfect pack but the functionality and man, the looks is top notch.
