A report claims that the company might unveil a new pair of wireless headphones dubbed Bullets soon.
OnePlus has been in the rumour mill for its upcoming smartphone Oneplus 6. The device is speculated to be out by end of this month or around that. A new report now claims that the company might unveil a new pair of wireless headphones dubbed Bullets soon.
The latest Bluetooth listing has confirmed a OnePlus Bullets Wireless headset and it might be the sequel to the popular OnePlus Bullet V2 earphones, as per a report by Nashville Chatter Class. The report suggests that the new Bullet headphones are based on Bluetooth v4.1 and include a Qualcomm chip. The earphones are identified by the model number BT31B. Additionally, the Bluetooth listing asserts that the company could launch the new headphones alongside launching the OnePlus 6.
The certification doesn't reveal the design of the Wireless headphones. However, this will apparently be the first pair of wireless earbuds by the company. Though it is not known whether the anticipated Bullets Wireless earbuds will be a truly wireless form factor such as Apple’s AirPods or Google'd Pixel Buds.
Besides, the Bullets V2 that came in 2016 sports a full-metal finish, a tangle-free flat cables and an in-line remote control. The Bullets V2 have a frequency range of 20-20000Hz, a sound pressure level of 107dB, 9mm dynamic drivers, rated the power of 3mW and 24ohms impedance.
As for the OnePlus 6, the handset is rumoured to be launched sometime around the release of the Avengers: Infinity War movie which is set to hit the cinemas on April 27 in India.
There's also a laptop for 'casual' gamers.
It wouldn't be an Acer CES event without some gaming PCs, and this year the focus is on the desktop crowd. The PC maker is unveiling two systems headlined by the US release of the Predator Orion 9000, a spare-no-expense tower for dedicated gamers. If you can get past the over-the-top "look ma, I'm a gamer" styling, you'll find a lot of power under the hood. The system uses a combination of liquid cooling and a partitioned airflow system to drive some seriously high-end components with little noise and some room for overclocking, including up to an 18-core Intel Core i9, twin GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards and as much as 128GB of RAM.
The case is also tailor-made for LAN parties with handles and wheels, while the tool-free window can help with quicker part upgrades. There's also no shortage of ports, although the array is slightly confusing: there are two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (one each of Type-C and Type-A), eight USB 3.1 ports (one Type-C and seven Type-A), and (for some reason) two USB 2.0 ports. The Orion 9000 will start at $1,999 when it ships in February, although Acer hasn't said what that configuration includes. You can safely assume an 18-core dream machine will cost considerably more.
Acer's laptop introduction, meanwhile, sits on the other end of the spectrum. The 15-inch Nitro 5 is aimed at "casual gamers" (or really, gamers on a budget) who want enough power to run modestly demanding titles when they're away from home. It won't blow anyone away with its Ryzen mobile processor and Radeon RX560 video, but you do get a solid-state drive (up to 512GB), as much as 32GB of RAM and a "plethora" of connections that include USB Type-C, gigabit Ethernet and HDMI 2.0. Really, the price is the hook -- the Nitro 5 will start at $799 when it ships in April, which sounds about right for a system with just enough oomph for your Overwatch sessions.
Acer has also launched the updated versions of Nitro 5 and Spin 3.
Acer has launched its updated notebook line-up at CES 2018. The previous three generation notebooks have been updated this year. The Acer Swift 7, claims to be the ‘Thinnest Computer in the World’ measuring at a thickness of 8.98mm which is even thinner than its previous iteration. Acer has also launched the updated versions of Nitro 5 and Spin 3.
Apart from the thinness, the Swift 7 has integrated 4G LTE connectivity which is a rare feature in the laptops. The device is equipped with seventh-generation Core i7 processor instead of latest eighth-generation. There’s 8GB of RAM and 256GB of PCIe SSD. Acer has upgraded the screen to a 14-inch panel with a resolution of 1080p. The Swift 7 is priced at $1,699 and will be available from March.
Acer also introduced its updated model gaming laptop – the Nitro 5, which has a 15.6-inch screen with 1080p resolution. It also has an upgraded AMD Radeon RX560 graphics card. RAM and SSD storage are configurable up to 32GB and 512GB respectively. The Nitro 5 is priced at $799 and will be available in April.
Lastly Acer’s updated the Spin 3, which gets eighth-generation Intel Core processors. Acer has also shrunk down the display from a 15.6-inch panel to a 14-inch 1080p display for a smaller overall form factor, as the name suggests “Spin” can still rotate around to convert into a tablet. Acer hasn’t released a full spec sheet yet, but the laptop may be priced at $599 and will be available in February.

The HELLI smart helmet can help you take calls on the go and also feature turn signals, if you are the ‘usual’ rider.
When it comes to traffic laws, motorcyclists in India and its adjoining countries top the chart for disobeying them. The mistaken perception of freedom on the streets often leads to fatal ways of bidding goodbye to the world. Despite the civic authorities urging the riders to opt for a helmet to have a remote chance of surviving accidents on these death traps, it becomes ‘an absolute necessity’ for the riders to carry the helmets on their arms instead of wearing them or talk on the phones while speeding through congested streets; they come up later with excuses such as ‘experiencing the wind-in-the-hair’ and ‘I-know-what’s-good-for-me’.
However, a startup from Pakistan intends to embed a sense of smartness amongst the ‘daredevil’ motorcycle riders with an affordable smart helmet. Called the HELLI (sounds like cornflakes), the helmet looks like any other conventional commuter-focused helmet but has a lot of tech under its skin. For starters, it has got all the stuff you require while riding embedded smartly in the body — a speaker, a microphone, a Bluetooth receiver for transferring calls through them, a GPS tracker and even a heart rate monitor.
However, the helmet also comes with its head-mounted camera for recording (similar to a dashcam in a car) and two indicators for letting other motorists know which side are you turning (useful if you don’t know how to operate the bike’s indicator control). The HELLI’s party piece is its SOS mode — it uses its GPS tracker to send a distress call to your family as well as an ambulance service. If you were wondering whether it needs some kind of Internet connection, then you are wrong — the HELLI makes a call through your phone, eliminating the need for any other kind of connection requirements.
This is not the first time someone has attempted a smart helmet. Skully came up with a smart helmet in 2013 that could do similar things but cost its buyers a $1,000 (the company went bust eventually). HELLI’s creators — Lets Innovate, has planned on a minimum sticker price of about $50 (roughly Rs 3,000) to a max of up to $99 for the top variant with all the bells and whistles. Considering the protection it offers, the HELLI should sell well in a country like India, provided the company plans to sell it outside Pakistan. However, the major challenge with the HELLI is its target audience — riders will ultimately have to wear them instead of carrying it around in their arms.
