The IFA was in full swing in Berlin until September 11, allowing visitors to discover the electronic products that will soon be available to them. This 2019 edition focuses on audio, in addition to traditional televisions and household appliances.
Samsung Bespoke: a modular refrigerator
Samsung has chosen the IFA to announce the release, after many adventures, of its Galaxy Fold folding smartphone, but also that of a 55-inch version of its 8K TV. The Korean has also made a name for himself in the world of large household appliances with his Bespoke refrigerator. A complete range characterized by its modular format – its elements can be assembled in eight different combinations – and by its interchangeable colored fronts. However, to know the price, it will still be necessary to wait.
TCL gets into the headphones market
The TCL brand, whose new televisions were also presented at the IFA, is entering a new segment. It comes with a variety of audio products, from headphones with a hoop to true wireless headphones, some of which offer a sporty version. Models at low prices, since all will cost less than 200 euros.
Huawei Freebuds 3: ANC in its true wireless version
As every year, Huawei has chosen the IFA to detail the chip that will power his next smartphone, the Mate 30: the Kirin 990 compatible with the 5G. But we will also remember the presentation of its true wireless Freebuds 3 headphones, whose format is not unlike that of the AirPods. Semi-Intra earphones with a promising active noise cancellation system.
Sony Xperia 5, delivered with WF-1000XM3 headphones
The latest high-end smartphone from Sony is official. An Xperia 5 with a 6.1-inch 21:9 screen, an 855 Snapdragon chipset with 6GB of RAM and a triple back camera.
A slightly more compact version of the Xperia 1, whose launch price is set at 799 euros for availability from October. Of particular note is the promotional offer offered as part of its pre-orders (as of today), since the smartphone comes with the excellent WF-1000XM3 true wireless headphones, worth 249 euros.
Philips PH805: affordable active noise cancellation
Discreet in the field of headphones, Philips is back with a promising PH805. Its new lightweight (245g) headband headset with touch-sensitive headphones includes an active noise reduction system. An increasingly common feature on high-end headphones, but which the manufacturer announces at a price of around 200 euros. The affordable ANC, in short.
Philips OLED 934+: the integrated Dolby Atmos sound
New Philips OLED+ TVs make their debut at the IFA. Among them, the OLED+ 934, including the other Ambilight lighting ranges on three sides and the Android TV operating system. The interest of the device does not stop there: the 4K television is indeed equipped with a soundbar including two speakers facing upwards. A Dolby Atmos-certified system that promises a greater sense of immersion.
