All of today’s best deals are headlined by the first discount on Microsoft’s new Surface Duo 2 at $250 off. That’s alongside the best price of the year on ASUS Chromebook Flip CM3 and a new low for DJI’s modular Action 2 camera. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Microsoft Surface Duo 2 5G sees first discount

Amazon is now offering the unlocked Microsoft Surface Duo 2 5G 256GB Android Smartphone for $1,350. Normally fetching $1,600, today’s offer amounts to the very first cash discount on the new smartphone at $250 off. The 128GB model is also on sale at $250 off.

Having just launched last fall, the new Surface Duo 2 improves on the folding smartphone experience offered by the original with plenty of quality of life changes. For starters, there is a flagship-class Snapdragon 888 SoC powering the experience alongside the larger 8.3-inch curved displays with a 90Hz refresh rate. On top of stylus support, there’s a three-lens camera assembly around the back to complete the package. Get a closer look in our launch coverage.

ASUS Chromebook Flip CM3 falls to best price of the year

Amazon is now offering the ASUS Chromebook Flip CM3 for $280. Typically fetching $330, today’s offer amounts to $50 in savings while matching the best price of the year. We saw it sell for less last holiday season, but today’s discount still delivers one of the first overall price cuts.

Hitting the scene less than a year ago, the latest ASUS Chromebook Clip CM3 arrives with a 12-inch touchscreen display and comes powered by a MediaTek processor. Its aluminum housing pairs with a two-in-one design that allows the Chrome OS machine to convert between a typical laptop and more of a tablet design, and comes supplemented by 32GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, and plenty of I/O. Our launch coverage details what to expect from the package. 

DJI’s modular Action 2 camera falls to new all-time lows

Adorama is now discounting the new DJI Action 2 Camera Dual-Screen Combo for $439. Down from its usual $519 price tag, this is only the second discount since launching this fall at $80 off and beats our previous mention by $20 in order to make a new all-time low. You can also score the Action 2 with Power Combo at $349, down from $399 and also marking a new low at $10 below our previous mention. 

As DJI’s latest action camera, the new Action 2 arrives to take on the likes of GoPro with a unique modular design. There’s the main camera itself up top, which sports a 12MP sensor with 4K/120FPS recording and 155-degree FOV as well as RockSteady 2.0 and HorizonSteady stabilization. Then you’ll be able to pair the action camera with either another screen or an extended battery module. Our recent hands-on review takes you through what to expect from the experience.

Sony’s latest XM4 ANC headphones hit $248

Adorama is now offering the Sony WF-1000XM4 ANC True Wireless Earbuds for $248 in two styles. Down from $278, you’re looking at a match of the second-best price to date with $30 in savings. These have only sold for less once before back on Black Friday. Delivering Sony’s latest pair of active noise cancelling earbuds, its new XM4 arrive with a design thats 40% smaller than its predecessor while still packing IPX4 water resistance. Its companion Qi charging case delivers up to 24 hours of playback, and rounds out the package alongside a new Integrated Processor V1 for improved active noise cancellation. You can get the full rundown on features in our launch coverage, as well. 

Another notable discount today has Adorama offering up the Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless ANC Headphones in three different styles for $248. Down from its usual $348 price tag, this is matching our previous mention at $100 off. Sony’s latest pair of headphones deliver improved active noise cancellation alongside up to 30-hours of playback on a single charge. On top of a new Bluetooth audio chip that can pair with two devices simultaneously, there’s also USB-C charging and built-in access to Alexa. You can also get a closer look in our launch coverage.

Govee Glide Hexa Light Panels fall to $175

Govee’s official Amazon storefront is offering a wide selection of its Wi-Fi RGBIC and RGBWW smart home lighting gear on sale priced from $19. One of our favorite deals is the Glide Hexa Wi-Fi RGBIC Light Panels for $175. Since December, these light panels have been going for $206 at Amazon, though last year we did see them fall as low as $152 back in October. Taking on Nanoleaf for wall-mounted light panels, the Govee Glide Hexa are a great way to give your space a facelift as we head into spring. There’s just something about winter fading away and the weather warming up that makes spring the perfect time to give your office a refresh. These light panels attach to your wall and can each display up to six colors at one time for “ultra-smooth flowing effects.” Plus, with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, these panels also work with Alexa and Assistant for smart home control.
