2020 saw some remarkable technologies and gadgets loaded with state-of-the-art features. Now, 2021 brings a refreshing hope for the tech community. So, what tech should you look out for in 2021? Well, here are our top 5 tech choices for 2021.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro
Samsung’s best earbuds are going out soon and they’ll definitely be on the list to look forward to in early 2021. And, the Galaxy Buds Pro will probably launch alongside the highly anticipated Galaxy S21 series. Plus, based on the recent leaks and renders of the ANC earbuds, we can assume its sound quality will be pretty good. And, these earbuds also feature an ergonomic design for the wearer’s comfort. Besides, there is also an active noise control on the earbuds, which automatically detects the ambient environment and adjusts the ANC levels.
According to many leaks, Samsung’s new earbuds will have an IPX7 rating for dust and water resistance, intelligent active noise control, 3D spatial audio. Not to mention its 8 hours of playback time, which is extendable to 28 hours in the charging case. And, the Galaxy Buds Pro will have an 11mm woofer and a 6.5mm tweeter, promising crisp sound to match rivals like Bose.
On top of that, the Galaxy Buds Pro has also been leaked in pre-release APK files, giving away its sleek design as well as charging case. If the leaks are true, then Galaxy Buds Pro should be the first on your headphone list this year! These earbuds will carry a price tag of just $199.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro
With so many upcoming smartphone options, it took us quite a while to choose a perfect one for the list. So, which smartphone should you look out for going forward in 2021? Wait no more, our choice is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro! This smartphone is one of the most powerful devices that is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 888 processor. The phone itself is already on the radar of tech enthusiasts and people who want a powerful device in 2021.
Mi 11 series is set to launch in China on December 28th, 2020, followed by an official global launch shortly after that. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro has the distinction of being the first Android phone to feature Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset ever, the Snapdragon 888. And, it is likely to offer an in-display camera underneath its 2K screen, boasting a 120Hz refresh rate. Not to mention its 100W super-fast-charging support. With that, you don’t have to spend hours charging your phone anymore.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will be a treat to use with its four-curved screen design, especially if you like to watch movies on your phone. Besides, the camera performance is also expected to be top-notch since Xiaomi’s flagship for 2021 is set to feature a 108MP primary lens with 4-in-1 pixel binning technology for crisp photography in all light conditions.
Apple’s AirTags are a tracking device rumored to be released in 2021. It will have deep iOS integration for Apple devices and work over Bluetooth to ensure accurate tracking of anything you want. Although it was scheduled for a 2020 release, the AirTags are now expected to launch in spring next year.
According to Jon Prosser, a trusted Apple leakster, the device will use Ultra-Wideband radio for accurate tracking of items with Apple AirTags clipped on. It will be based on the encrypted Find My security and many new privacy features. Once the tagged item is out of range, you will receive a notification immediately. In that case, the Find My app will direct the user toward the location where the item can be found.
Perhaps this is the coolest tech that you’ll see in 2021. The SprayCare Band is a handy sanitizer dispenser that disinfects with the touch of a button. The band works just like Spiderman web-shooter, but it is a more sensible approach towards hygiene and health.
No bigger than a smartwatch, the sanitizer will be your best bet for cleaning hands, surfaces, or anything else to stay safe during the pandemic. The accessory will be able to dispense 40 sprays, which last up to three seconds each. We think this is quite enough for a day’s use. Also, the SprayCare Band has already achieved its crowdfunding goal. And, it is on target for mass production in the coming months. Also, you can get extra perks by backing the project and securing your SprayCare Band for a safe future now! The SpayCare Band will be shipped in order of purchase starting in March 2021.
OnePlus has dominated the smartphone arena for quite some time now. It started out with flagship killers in the premium category and is featuring mid-range wonders like the Nord. In 2021, the Chinese OEM is going to step into a new dimension with the expected release of a smartwatch. This announcement comes directly from a tweet by the company CEO, Pete Lau.
He confirms that the OnePlus smartwatch will be arriving in early 2021. However, we think this will happen in March when OnePlus generally schedules its first batch of releases for the new year. Also, this is the time when the OnePlus 9 series is likely to debut as well. Besides, the new smartwatch is also expected to run on Google Wear OS. The main reason is because of the company CEO’s interest in working with Google to fine-tune the OnePlus smartwatch operating system.
Little is known at this point about the smartwatch specs. But, one thing is for sure, it’ll be high on specifications, functions, and features. We expect it will be a successful launch just like the OnePlus Buds that gives its competitors a good run for their money. Additionally, the OnePlus smartwatch could feature a Qualcomm chipset paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
Well, that’s it! We hope these new techs of 2021 have amazed you with the potential of future technology. Also, what 2021 tech do you like most? Let us know about it in the comments!
