Tech News – The NEW Nokia 3310 + DJI’s NEW Tiny Spark Drone + Asus’ NEW Zenscreen USB C Monitor


Hey guys Brainy here and welcome to a new
episode of Tech News. The series on this channel where I keep you
up to date on some of the important things that have been happening in the Tech Industry. I don’t have much to talk about here in
this video but what I do have to discuss is still really interesting, So stay tuned and
let’s get into it. The updated modern version of the Iconic Nokia
3310 has officially launched in the UK. Priced at £49.99 ($65), the new 3310 is slightly
smaller, and ever so slightly more modern. You’re not going to be downloading all the
latest apps on this device, but it does include a fresh take on the classic Snake game. Inside it’s running Nokia’s Series 30+
software, with a 2.4-inch QVGA display, a 2-megapixel camera, and even a microSD slot. Opera Mini will provide basic web surfing,
but the real appeal of this phone (aside from nostalgia) is the battery life. HMD, the maker of new Nokia-branded phones,
claims the new 3310 will last 31 days on standby with 22 hours of talk time. Asus is finally ready to begin selling its
portable USB-C monitor. The Asus ZenScreen MB16AC is a 15.6-inch full
HD display that comes in at just 8mm thick and features a foldable smart case that can
act as a stand. Asus’ monitor can auto-rotate between landscape
and portrait modes, and it comes with a ZenScreen stylus and a USB-A adapter for users without
USB-C ports. The Asus ZenScreen is expected to be available
in the US in July for $249, but may hit retailers in Europe by the end of the month, according
to AnandTech. DJI’s $499 Spark is the company’s cheapest
and tiniest drone yet. Over the last six months, the biggest trend
in the drone industry has been shrinking the size of the units to make them more portable
and accessible. This week DJI unveiled its latest aircraft,
the Spark, a mini drone that weighs in at less than a single pound (0.6 pounds, to be
exact). But just as it did with the Mavic Pro, the
company has managed to squeeze a ton of powerful features into this small package. Along with its form factor, the other thing
DJI managed to shrink on this unit was the price. Until now, every new unit the company released
has started close to $1,000. The Spark will cost just $499, putting it
up against cheaper units from Parrot, Yuneec, and ZeroTech. Spark’s camera is supported by a two-axis
gimbal and can capture 1080p video and 12-megapixel still photos. A new feature called QuickShot lets the drone
shoot one minute of footage and edit it down to 10 seconds for you to share. The Spark has onboard sensors that allow it
to dodge obstacles, with the drone’s top speed maxing out at 31 miles per hour. It will be available in five colors: Alpine
White, Sky Blue, Meadow Green, Lava Red, and Sunrise Yellow. DJI is expected to ship the Spark on June
15th Sony is discontinuing its midrange Xperia
lines to focus on its flagship smartphones Changes are on the way to Sony’s smartphone
lineup. The company is discontinuing its Xperia X
and Xperia X Compact lines of devices, which it considers “premium standard” (midrange),
Sony announced at its investor conference, according to XperiaBlog. Sony has decided to shift its focus to its
flagship devices, and says it will launch at least two new devices that fit into that
category before the end of the year under the Xperia name. Given the trend of smartphones and Sony’s
design prowess, those devices should be something interesting to say the least. But as usual with Sony smartphones, the software
will remain the big question. Sony usually unveils its flagship device at
IFA in September, so it shouldn’t be too long before we see new devices from the company. And that’s just about it for today’s episode
of Tech News. If you like it, learnt anything new or want
