Powered by Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, the Sony X80K is slated to do justice to your cinema and gaming experiences. With a BRAVIA CAM built-in, you can use gestures to control the TV. The 55-inch model is available at a price of Rs 94,990, while the price of the other size options are yet to be announced.

Two new ASUS ROG laptops launched 

The ASUS Republic of Gamers lineup has introduced two new high-performance gaming laptops to fuel your gaming habit! First, the ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition comes with the latest hardware to help you enjoy cutting-edge gaming experiences. According to the company, a custom vapor chamber, paired with ROG’s exclusive Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal allows the SCAR 17 SE to push its hardware further than before. The laptop also features an interesting cyberpunk aesthetic, with invisible ink on the metal chassis. In normal lighting, it has a matte metallic texture, but under a UV flashlight, the ink flashes green and blue. Launched alongside this is the ROG Flow X16, a thin 16-inch, convertible laptop with Nebula HDR display and top-end components wired for gaming. The company is yet to announce the prices for both laptops.
