Well, the price is approximately closer to (iPhone 11 – 256 GB – Rs 69900) and (Asus ROG Phone 2 – Rs 70000). Only a die-hard gaming fan would go with Asus ROG Phone 2, instead of iPhone 11.

As far as specs are concerned, the smartphone is expected to come with a 1080 panel AMOLED display, in-built fingerprint sensor. The device is also integrated with the latest and most powerful processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 855/865 and a whopping 8 GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.

Microsoft’s Xbox Series X
Back in 2019, Microsoft unveiled about the next-gen Xbox with a trailer at the Game Awards. Known by its codename “Project Scarlett”, Microsoft decided to stand in the competition along with big competitors like Sony, which is also coming with PlayStation 5.
By this 2020 could witness a quantum leap in the gaming industry for gamers and gaming-manufacturers. Earlier, we have seen the previous Xbox subsided by Sony PS4. And the reason was the pricing. The Sony PS4 cost $399, whereas the Microsoft Xbox One X cost $499. Here you can see the comparison of the prices of the two previous launches.
So, this year, it is expected that the price could be one of the major factors for Sony and Microsoft. Diving into the specs of Xbox Series X – It comes with an integrated Microsoft’s xCloud streaming technology that allows the device to keep up its pace by working smoothly and swiftly.
The company also promises that the graphic performance and its speed will be amazing than Xbox One X. The other features include – 4K visual quality at 60 fps, 8K resolution and 120fps gameplay, GDDR6 memory, AMD Zen 2 processor, which is four times more powerful than its previous Xbox One X, and Custom NVMe SSD that alleviates the loading time and enhances the gaming experience by allowing gamers to play uninterruptedly.
The list of games that comes with Xbox Series X includes, starting with Halo: Infinite, and Hellblade 2: Senua’s Sacrifice (adding next year). The release date is not official yet, but the company just gave a hint, saying “Holiday 2020”. It means, we can either expect the release during the summer or maybe somewhere near to Christmas time.
However, the price is not yet officially known. But, based on its previous release, and high-end specs, the pricing would be exorbitant than its predecessor.
LG 2020 Ultrafine Ergo Display
Now, make some space on your desk for this coolest device from LG – UltraFine Ergo Display. Lately, the company has announced three premium models under the monitor segment – UltraWide, UltraGear, and UltraFine.
The upfront runner in the line-up is the LG Ultrafine Ergo Display (model 32UN880). The monitor comes with a 32-inch display, with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) embedded quality.
The monitor also features an IPS display with 95 percent DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, and a 60Hz refresh rate, which is considered to be the standard rate for all types of TVs.
The other extra features include USB-C port, which helps you to transfer data at a quick pace, charge your laptop, and two HDMI slots to exhibit stunning clarity and excellent detail of every image produced on the screen.
Also, the monitor has AMD Free Sync technology with 5ms pixel response speed that evades stuttering and supports a dynamic refresh rate. However, there is one inimitable feature that lets LG stand apart – It’s the swivel arm-type component.
This annexed feature lets the monitor gyrate 280 degrees horizontally and incline 25 degrees vertically, which is very much helpful for professionals who tend to spend much of their time working in front of the monitor.
Moreover, the prices are not yet revealed by LG, but by looking at the specs and quality of output it features, there is no indecision in expecting a premium price label.
Realme Fitness Band
Recently, after the launch of Realme Air Buds, the brand is expanding its footmarks into the lifestyle segment. The brand is expanding itself at a very faster pace in the smartphone market.
If you look back, we have witnessed the launch of a dozen smartphones in 2019. Later, it slowly stepped its foot into the audio section. And now, it is occupying its place in the lifestyle section by deciding to release the Realme Fitness Band.
So, 2020 is a mixture of all kinds of innovative tech gadgets, which is a manifestation of numerous available options. Lately, the Realme India head stated in a video that they’ll be launching the fitness band in the first half of 2020.
However, there are many brands in the fitness band industry like Samsung, Lenovo, Honor, and a few other smartphone brands. If you look at the pricing, Honor Band 4 comes at Rs 1599, Xiaomi Mi Band 4, which turned out to be the most picked up ones in the market, costs Rs 2298, Xiaomi Mi Band HRX Edition costs Rs 1299, Intex Fitrist Pulzz costs the same of Xiaomi Mi Band HRX Edition.
So, we can expect a price range between Rs 2000 to Rs 2500. Yet, by looking at the rates, competitors in a similar market, and the pace of Realme, there would be strong competition among these major players.
