Dell’s New XPS 27 AiO Desktop Packs 10 Speakers and an InfinityEdge Display

Microsoft revitalised the dying industry of all-in-one computers a few months ago with the launch of their Surface Studio. It is targeted at a specific set of people with its articulating touch display and a premium price tag. Dell, as a result, has announced a quite similar product at CES 2017 – the XPS 27 AiO.The new XPS 27, most notably, features an extensive audio system that contains a whopping ten speakers – six facing down the user, four responsible for the mid and bass frequencies, dedicated tweeters (treble speaker) in each corner, two more down firing, and a pair of passive radiators. Phew. It’s definitely one of the most loudest AiO ever unveiled as the audio is usually an underrated aspect of this type of machines as OEMs expect the consumer to purchase additional speakers and use headphones.

It’s called the “Nokia 6” (we can question the naming later) and it will be exclusively in China, unlike previous rumours which pointed at an India launch too.For starters, the new Nokia 6 is powered by the latest Android Nougat operating system and features an aluminium unibody design which is a big deal according to HMD as it takes “55 minutes to machine a Nokia 6 from a block of 6000 series aluminium”. There’s a Full HD 5.5-inch panel up front that is protected by 2.5D Gorilla Glass and underneath, a Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor keeps things running along with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of inbuilt storage which supports microSD cards of up to 128GB capacity, Adreno 505 GPU, and a non-removable (sigh) 3,000mAh battery.As far as optics are concerned, Nokia 6 sports a 16MP rear shooter with an aperture of f/…
