5 Most-Anticipated Gadgets You Can Buy in 2024

What are some of the most exciting gadgets coming your way in 2024?

Jeremy Proome



2024 is set to deliver some innovative and exciting technology products that’ll scratch the itch of even the most cynical and jaded audiophiles, media lovers, gamers, and smartphone enthusiasts. We’ve rounded up 5 of the most interesting products coming our way in 2024:

LG’s see-through Signature OLED TV

LG has always been at the forefront of panel technology, and the South Korean tech firm recently showed off the world’s first 4K wireless transparent TV at the CES expo in Las Vegas. The 77-inch OLED display has two modes: transparent and opaque. In transparent mode, it can show art, videos and data, such as news and weather, while also letting you see through it to the rest of the room. When you want to watch TV or a movie, the display deploys a contrast screen so you only see the on-screen action. How is it wireless you may ask? Well, video content is streamed wirelessly to the display from LG’s Zero Connect Box, which would be near the TV or in another room. It is expected to launch in late 2024.

Playstation Portal

After a delay for the local market, the Playstation Portal will arrive in South Africa in early 2024 with a retail price of R5,499. The Portal is a companion device, and not a self-standing machine, and acts as portable screen and controller which a PS5 console can ‘cast’ to. What makes it special though is that the Portal brings the PS5 experience to the palm of your hand. It includes the key features of the DualSense wireless controller, including adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. The left and right side of the DualSense controller is mounted to a vibrant 8-inch LCD screen capable of 1080p resolution at 60fps.

Huawei FreeClip

Huawei will launch the FreeClip in 2024 — a pair of earbuds with an open ear design that allows the earbuds to sit in your ears without blocking your ear-canal. Thanks to the innovative C-bridge design which acts as the earbuds’ clip, they fit snugly along the curvature of the ear. The FreeClip’s open-ear listening technology delivers clear and immersive sound without blocking ambient noise. To minimise sound leakage and ensure privacy, the earbuds use a reverse sound wave system that intelligently adjusts the volume and cancels the sound waves that “leak” out of the earbuds.

iPhone 16

Another year and another iPhone is set to touch down into the local market. 2024 will see the launch of the iPhone 16, which is still somewhat of a mystery, but there are some insider tips that give us a hint of what to expect. It’s expected that we’ll see larger 6.3 and 6.9 displays (the latter being the Pro model), a new ‘capture’ button on the device, a periscope zoom lens on the camera, the faster A-series chipset, and Wi-Fi 7 capabilities.

MSi Claw A1M

The handheld gaming world has been reinvigorated thanks to the likes of the Steam Deck, Asus ROG Ally and other handheld PC devices. MSi will be throwing their name into the hat with the Claw A1M, a handheld gaming device with a 7-inch display, powered by Intel Core Ultra processors and featuring Intel XeSS technology, ensuring a smooth and immersive gameplay experience even on AAA titles. Much like the ROG Ally, it has two analogues, face buttons, and all the triggers and bumper buttons you’d expect, along with a sleek ergonomic design. It is set to be priced at $699 (around R11,400).
