DJI GETS IN ON THE AC­TION… CAM

CHI­NESE drone-maker DJI is muscling on Gopro’s world with the launch of a tidy-look­ing ac­tion cam­era, the Osmo Ac­tion.

It’s crammed full of neat fea­tures, and more-or-less matches Gopro’s Hero 7 Black spec-wise.

The Osmo Ac­tion bet­ters the Gopro in one im­por­tant re­gard; it has a colour screen on the front as well as the back, which makes it more use­ful for film­ing your­self.

Other than that it has two mics, live-streaming via an app, it’s water­proof, and can cap­ture time-lapse footage, as well is up to 50-frames-per-sec­ond of video in 4K. It also boasts voice-ac­ti­vated con­trols.

Word is, also, that the dig­i­tal im­age-sta­bil­i­sa­tion in the Osmo Ac­tion is bet­ter than in the Gopro, pro­duc­ing smoother video.

Price-wise the Osmo Ac­tion wins too – it costs £329, £50 less than the Gopro Hero 7 Black.

GALAXY S10 GETS A DATE WITH 5G

AND so, we have a date. Sam­sung will be­gin sell­ing the 5G ver­sion of its flagship Galaxy S10 phone on June 7. And you can or­der one to­day.

The new ver­sion of the hand­set will cost £1,099, and is avail­able locked to ei­ther EE or Voda­fone.

The 5G net­work is the next gen­er­a­tion mo­bile net­work, which prom­ises much greater speeds of data trans­fer and bet­ter cov­er­age. Ex­ist­ing 4G phones won’t be able to take ad­van­tage of these new fea­tures, though.

EE’S 5G net­work will be switched on on May 30, and it will of­fer 5G data plans, start­ing at £54-a-month.

It will ini­tially be avail­able in Lon­don, Cardiff, Ed­in­burgh, Belfast, Birm­ing­ham and Manch­ester, with 10 more ci­ties to be added later this year. More will fol­low next year.

Voda­fone will launch its 5G net­work from July 3 in Glas­gow, Lon­don, Manch­ester, Liver­pool, Birm­ing­ham, Cardiff and Bris­tol.
