Innovative screen protector enables you to operate iPhones with only one hand

With the new, cleverly designed screen protector Second Glass Smart Buttons from 4smarts, iPhone users have finally an easy way to operate their device with only one hand. A translucent wire embedded into the screen protector´s glass moves the activation area of the return button from the top left corner down to the home button´s left side.

In recent years the general tendency on the smartphone market is that devices increase in size from generation to generation. As a consequence the size and resolution of the screens increases, however there is also a downside to this development: smartphones get more and more unwieldy.

This is especially problematic for Apple´s smartphones. Important controls such as the return function can only be activated by touching the upper screen area. With screen sizes reaching up to 5.5 inches, it therefore is nearly impossible to operate the smartphone with only one hand. The 4smarts Second Glass Smart Buttons addresses exactly this problem.

Thanks to a special invisible wire embedded into the screen protector´s glass, pressing the bottom left corner of your iPhone screen will activate the return function, just as it would on an Android device.

The glass is applied by attaching its self-adhesive side to the screen. After that the iPhone can instantly be used effortlessly with only one hand, which comes in handy when you are on the go.

Additionally to the aforementioned function, the screen protector also protects your smartphone reliably from scratches and bumps, repels oils and liquids and is fingerprint resistant. The Second Glass Smart Buttons display protector is available for all iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 models.

4smarts releases the innovative car charger “Ultimate”

Efficient, future-proof and compact:
With the Ultimate USB car charger the company 4smarts launches a charger that can output up to 6000mA and picks up on current technical innovations such as Quick Charge 3.0 and USB-C.
The amperage that is rather high when compared to customary car chargers is partitioned by two separate chipsets. Thus the device virtually combines two chargers in one housing.

The Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 USB Type-A port has 3000mA at its disposal, which enables extremely fast charging. Another factor that contributes to this, is the chipset´s ability to raise the output voltage during the charging process to up to 12V.

The remaining charge current is shared between another USB Type-A port and an USB Type-C port. The latter one ensures that this charger will also work with all devices that will be released in the near future without any complications. The Ultimate charger fits all the aforementioned technology into a slim and plain housing.

Release of the extremely slim power bank „Duos Slim Evo“

A battery with a capacity of 6000 mAh built into a slim, transportable housing: The new Duos Slim Evo power bank from the company 4smarts is not more than 7.5 mm thick. In spite of its compact measurements the power bank features a variety of technical details.

The power bank charges via a micro-USB port. Its two USB Type-A ports can be used to charge tablets, smartphones and all other devices that can be connected to the power bank via an USB cable.

The Duos Slim Evo´s maximum output is 5V/2600 mA. 5V/1700 mA is the maximum output per port. If two devices are charged simultaneously, the output is partitioned depending on how much power each of the connected devices needs.

The haptical aspect was also taken into consideration. Thanks to the power bank´s rubberised housing and its rounded edges the Duos Slim Evo is comfortable to hold and fits easily into your pocket.

Release of new affordable VR Glasses “Spectator Sound”

With the Spectator-series 4smarts has developed a line of reasonably priced virtual reality glasses that can be used with nearly all smartphone models. The series´ current top model is the Spectator Sound that was specifically designed to tap the full potential of virtual reality on an auditive level as well.

The storage compartment on the glasses´ front side has room for all smartphones with a size of 4.7” to 6.0”. The image´s width and depth can be customized with two control buttons for a sharper depiction and an optimal gaming and movie experience.

The aspherical lenses ensure that the image isn´t distorted and allow for a large field of vision of 120 Degree. In this way the glasses enable a more intense perception of depth and three-dimensional structure.

Furthermore Spectator Sound VR glasses are compatible to Google Cardboard apps. By scanning the QR code that is printed onto the glasses the depiction of these apps is adjusted to the respective device.

Smartphones stay fully operational when they are in the storage compartment. By pressing a button on the VR glasses a mechanical switch triggers a touch on the device´s display. Thus nearly all currently available virtual reality gaming and video apps can be used without any restrictions.

The glasses´ front cover is transparent. Therefore the Spectator Sound is also suitable for augmented reality apps.

The difference between the Spectator Sound and the other VR glasses from its series is that audio quality is of particular importance for this product. The headphone jack that is located inside of the storage compartment can be used to connect the smartphone´s audio output to the Spectator Sound´s stereo headphones. The volume can be adjusted without difficulty with the dedicated control button.

The 4smarts Spectator Sound Virtual Reality glasses combine all these technical features at a comparatively low suggested retail price of 49.90€ and in doing so are by far cheaper than the usual goods in this product category.
