Hongzuo’s top mobile and accessories deals from IT Show 2023 (Part 2)

Google Pixel 7

Seeing a Tech Awards winner at a consumer electronics fair is always nice. It’s even nicer if it’s a recent winner, like the Google Pixel 7. It’s even better if the winner also has promotions to accompany it.

The Google Pixel 7 won our Best High-end Smartphone award for Tech Awards 2023 because of its overall value and ability to deliver a high-quality phone experience via its imaging, components, and software.

Sweetening the deal is a myriad of promotions: Pixel 7 is S$50 off (at S$949, down from S$999), on top of two bonuses. The first is a free Fitbit Charge 5 (worth S$238). The second bonus is a choice between getting a free Google Pixel Buds A-series (worth S$149), or getting Google Pixel Buds Pro at S$100 off its sticker price (pay S$199, instead of S$299).

If your budget is more flexible, you’ll be pleased to know that the Google Pixel 7 Pro also has a similar promotion: S$50 off its S$1,299 sticker price along with the same bonuses.

Find this winning pick at Challenger’s mega-booth at Level 3 concourse, Booth 307. 


JBL Endurance Run and Endurance Run BT

The JBL Endurance Run is a 2018 wired in-ear sports headphone designed with joggers and runners in mind. It has IPX5 sweat-proofing, its proprietary Fliphook design for secure wear, and magnetic buds for easy cable management when hanging around your neck. It offers 3.5mm connectivity and has 8.2mm drivers. 

The Endurance Run BT is the wireless, Bluetooth-compatible version of its wired counterpart, support A2DP 1.2, AVRCP 1.5, HFP 1.5 (for handfree calling), and HSP 1.2 Bluetooth profiles. Run BT has up to six hours of wireless playback.

You can find the JBL Endurance Run and Endurance Run BT at S$29 and S$39 respectively (originally S$39.90 and S$69.90). The promotion is at Challenger’s mega-booth on Level 3 concourse, Booth 309.


Remax RPP-525 wireless power bank

The Remax RPP-525 power bank offers 10,000mAh with two wired charging slots (USB-C at 20W maximum and USB-A at 22.5W maximum). But what makes it handy is its support for 15W wireless charging. It’s handy in a pinch, with just enough juice to fill up an Android phone nearly twice.

Originally at S$43.90, you can now find it for S$29.90 at the variety goods booth (located on Level 4, Booth 8121). 


Xiaomi 13 Pro

The Xiaomi 13 Pro needs no introduction if you’ve already heard about its official launch in Singapore. The short of it: the handset packs the latest Qualcomm flagship-grade chipset, has Leica co-engineered lenses and camera UI, and it costs a whopping S$1,599 (256GB storage) or S$1,699 (512GB storage).

At IT Show 2023, the Xiaomi 13 Pro can be pre-ordered from the dedicated Xiaomi spot at Level 4, Booth 8115. Even the pre-order bonus at IT Show 2023 is identical to ongoing promotion (pre-ordering Xiaomi 13 Pro nets you a free Xiaomi Watch S1 and a free Redmi Buds 4 Pro).

So what makes this deal special?

One, it’s one of the last remaining places to pre-order the Xiaomi 13 Pro, because pre-order stocks are already sold out nearly everywhere else (per the distributor’s sharing). In fact, the Xiaomi booth only has 10 pieces of Xiaomi 13 Pro for IT Show 2023 (at least two of which were already gone by the first day).

Second, the demo units at the booth are available for trials – so you can experience its Leica-touched imaging prowess by yourself. Lastly, the Xiaomi 13 Pro sold at IT Show 2023 is available for cash-and-carry from 11 March 2023 onwards, so you don’t have to wait if you pre-order – head down and collect once the pre-order period is over.
