Never happy with a phone’s battery life? Xiaomi claims to have the answer—120W fast charging that can bring the 11i Hypercharge 5G to 100 per cent capacity in just 15 minutes. But this new device isn’t just a one-trick wonder: You also get 5G, a 120Hz display, 108MP main camera (as well as an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro camera), Dolby Atmos, and even a 3.5mm audio out that should make audiophiles happy. From INR 26,999
The Venu 2 Plus won’t get you to the running trail, but once you are there, it’ll make exercise a lot of fun. There’s an accurate GPS, up to nine days of battery life, voice control, 25 sports tracking, all-day health monitoring, period tracking, on-screen workout guides and even storage for music. The smartwatch also looks smashing, especially in Cream Gold or Stainless Steel. INR 46,990
If your partner is a bookworm, this gift will be worth a million words. The All-New Kindle Paperwhite features a new interface, a 6.8-inch display with adjustable brightness and tint, up to 10 weeks of battery life, USB Type-C charging, and for those beach days, IPX8 water resistance (it can even survive a short dunk in seawater). From INR 13,999
Looking for a gift for an audiophile who’s always on the go? Sony’s new earbuds are possibly the best in their category.

INR 24,990
This lightweight tab was made to travel.
