Alright, let’s end the week like we always do, with deals, and today we’ll start with Samsung’s reservation deals for whatever it’ll unfold at unpacked. Follow the first link in the description, as the perks are pretty crazy. Moving on to some gaming options, Best Buy currently has the Nintendo Switch Lite for its regular 200 bucks, but it comes with a free 128 Gigs memory card valued at 68 dollars so, it’s a pretty solid thing to consider. If you move on to Amazon, they have the regular Switch in a pretty neat bundle with the case, earbuds, and protectors galore for $350.
If you’re looking for some true wireless earbuds, the AirPods Pro is getting a 59 dollar discount, leaving those at 190. If you want a cheaper pair, the Galaxy Buds Plus are 50 dollars off, leaving those at 99 dollars. Sticking to wearables, the Apple Watch Series 6 is also getting a 110 dollar price drop if you go stainless steel and Milanese loop, leaving it at 640. Finally, Samsung’s trade-in deals are still here, believe it or not, which means you can still grab the Galaxy S21 Ultra for just 400 bucks, the S21+ for 200, or the regular S21 for as low as 100 dollars if you have an eligible device for trade-in. We have more deals on the AirPods Max, other smartwatches, and more in the links in the description.
Let’s stick to official news but move the spotlight on to OnePlus as yes, after weeks of teasers, the company finally unveiled the Nord 2 and the OnePlus Buds Pro a couple of days ago. As expected, it brings a 6.43-inch Fluid AMOLED display running at 90Hz. It is powered by MediaTek’s Density 1200 5G SoC, up to 12 Gigs of RAM, and 256 Gigs of Storage. It also brings a 4500 mAh battery that supports 65W Warp Charing and runs Android 11 out of the box. When it comes to the cameras, you get a 50MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide, and my personal favorite, a 2MP macro.
Now, moving on to the Buds Pro, these feature innovative noise reduction, which is ANC, extended battery performance, and a truly immersive premium audio experience, according to OnePlus. They’re promising up to 38 hours of battery life with the charging case, and they’ll give you 10 hours of playtime in a 10-minute charge. They come in 2 color variants, Black and White, and start at 150 dollars in the US and Canada. Speaking of price tags, the Nord will be available for 399 Euros but, it’ll only be available in Europe and India next week. I wish we were getting it in this side of the pond because it sounds compelling.
