The top price ever is available on Google Pixel 8 at $540. A $159 deduction is combined with Samsung’s 128GB PRO Plus microSD card at $11, while Lenovo’s IdeaPad Flex 5i Chromebook Plus falls to $369 to complete the discounts. Read on for more details in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Google Pixel 8 has never sold for less
Woot is currently offering the best price yet on the Google Pixel 8. Right now, you can get the unlocked 128GB smartphone for $540. This is down from the typical $699 price, saving you $159. It’s $9 less than our previous offering from earlier this year, which was the previous lowest price. Now for the first time, it’s selling for less, providing some competition to the new Samsung Galaxy S24 devices about to be released. We obtained the new release at launch and detailed how this is the “small phone of our dreams” in our review.
The new Google Pixel 8 maximizes the use of AI features with the new Tensor G3 chip to back it up. There’s brand new Magic Eraser technology for photo and video editing, as well as a 6.2-inch Actua display. It encapsulates nearly all of the pro features of its larger counterpart into a smaller body, to provide a phone with all the features done compactly and effectively. There’s a dual camera array around back that is supported by all-day battery life to finish off this flagship smartphone.
Load up on microSD cards while Samsung’s 128GB PRO Plus is $11
Amazon is now providing the 128GB Samsung PRO Plus microSD Memory Card for $11. This is the latest Pro Plus model that debuted last spring at $18 and is presently at the lowest price we can find. Today’s deal reduces the 128GB model back down to the Black Friday price from last year, matching the lowest we have tracked on Amazon. Samsung improved its PRO Plus lineup in 2023, with the model on sale today able to reach speeds up to 180MB/s alongside the usual range of compatibility with everything from camera and drone rigs to gaming consoles, handsets, and more. With today’s discount, it is now nearly half the price of the 200MB/s PRO Ultimate card from Samsung as well. Check out our hands-on review for more details
Lenovo’s IdeaPad Flex 5i Chromebook Plus hits $369
Best Buy is now offering the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i Chromebook Plus for $369. This is down from the typical $499 price tag and marking a new all-time low. It’s $130 off for the first time, beating previous mentions from last fall and the holiday shopping season by an extra $10. The IdeaPad Flex 5i is Lenovo’s latest release into the world of Chrome OS. It features a 14-inch 2K touchscreen display with an Intel I3 processor and 8GB of memory. The folding design enables you to convert the laptop form-factor into more of a tablet, too.
Google’s new Chromebook Plus series helps simplify the Chrome OS lineup by mandating minimum specs that are twice as good as last year’s top-selling devices. The improved hardware means that there are some better features than your standard Chromebook, with a bigger focus on AI, added customization, and everything else you can read over in our launch coverage.
DJI’s Mini 3 Pro folding drone hits $600
Amazon now offers the DJI Mini 3 Pro folding quadcopter for $600. This is the first drop we’ve seen from the usual $759 price tag and marking a new all-time low at $159 off. We’ve only ever seen bundles on sale in the past, and now anyone who just wants to score the drone with its companion remote can score the best discount ever. You can also step up to the Mini 3 Pro with one of the DJI RC screen remotes at $730 over at Best Buy, down from $910 and matching the all-time low. Take a look at the full specs in our coverage at DroneDJ.
This time around with the DJI Mini 3 Pro, the entire drone weighs in under 249 grams while still delivering 34-minute flight times and a robust set of obstacle avoidance tech. The 1/1.3-inch sensor is already a noteworthy solution for aerial photography thanks to the ability to record 4K HDR videos, but there’s also a rotating gimbal that makes this the first DJI drone to be able to capture vertical video for sharing to your smartphone. Alongside the drone, you’re also getting the DJI RC controller with a built-in display.
UGREEN’s new Nexode Pro USB-C GaN chargers start from $47
UGREEN’s official Amazon storefront now is offering its new Nexode Pro 65W USB-C Charger for $47. Normally fetching $56, you’re looking at the first chance to save on this new release at 15% off. It’s of course a new all-time low, and makes the most affordable of the new GaN chargers even more so. It features the same GaNInfinity chip as the rest of the collection, with 65W of power to refuel your M2 MacBook Air halfway in just 30 minutes. There’s three ports, with a main pair of USB-C slots being joined by USB-A. We detail what’s new with this lineup in our launch coverage.
