Huawei launches the Nova 3 and Nova 3i in Pakistan – 24MP AI Selfie Camera with 128GB storage!

Huawei launches the Nova 3 and Nova 3i in Pakistan – 24MP AI Selfie Camera with 128GB storage!

Huawei, a few years ago was considered an underdog in the smartphone world, but now has risen to become the World’s No. 2 smartphone manufacturer, only behind Samsung by a small margin. Leaving behind most of the competition in its wake, mainly due to its highly successful mid – range devices. Blueking Wang, Manager, Huawei CBG stated a very interesting fact “We are world’s no. 2 even though we are not in the American market, imagine what we could achieve if we were!” Huawei has strengthened its roots in Pakistan today with the launch of the Nova series smartphones, the nova 3 and the nova 3i. The phones are considered to be mid – range devices but, with flagship level specifications. Does that make them the new flagship killers? There is a high possibility that they just might be! Huawei held a special media roundtable just before the launch which consisted of their management team, Blueking Wang, Manager, Huawei CBG, Crown Huan Guang, Campaign Manager, Huawei CBG and Khan Muhammad Osama Shaukat, Manager – Public Relations, Huawei CBG. There they showcased both their devices, we were lucky enough to get sneak peek at the devices before Huawei officially lifted the curtains on its shiny new devices. Talking a bit of the devices, both of them house a 6.34’ LCD Display (1080 x 2340), with a fingerprint reader at the back (just the right place in my opinion) and due to its dual camera setup at the front also has Face Unlock (which by the way works quite well in the 2 days I have tested it). The Nova 3 is the higher end model between the two, housing an impressive Hisilicon Kirin 970 Octa Core processor (same processor housed in the almost $1000 P20 Pro) wrapped in an aluminum body, a whopping 128GB internal storage with microSD card support 4GB RAM with a 6GB variant coming in the near future. 3,750 mAh battery with USB Type C and Fast charging.  It also houses a headphone jack! (Yes they still exist…Thank God!) Blueking Wang, Manager, Huawei CBG also stated, “We have done our research for Pakistan and bringing to the people what they want. They wanted more space, we have done just that by launching not the 64GB but the 128GB variant in Pakistan” The highlight of this device though are the 4 AI powered cameras it houses (dual setups in the front and back). The Dual cameras at the back consist of a 24MP and 16MP setup, which comes with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) with f/1.8 aperture, they can also record 2K videos at 30FPS, with EIS so that you won’t have any...

Clicking on any job in this listing opens an at-a-glance view of comprehensive information about the posting such as job title, location, whether it is full-time or part-time, and several other important details – from summaries and links to reviews and ratings of the employer by trusted sources, to the commute between the workplace and home. The feature will then direct people to the job listing page on the respective website to learn more information or submit their application.     Job postings with at-a-glance details such as the job title and location across job types – full-time, part-time and internship jobs Built to work both on mobile and desktop, job search comes equipped with a number of tools, making it easier for job seekers to find opportunities that fit their unique needs.

The Nokia 8 with Bothie Camera and OZO Audio! [Review]

The Nokia 8 with Bothie Camera and OZO Audio! [Review]

Nokia is a name reminiscent of not just quality but also because of the strong history that is attached with the brand itself. Through out the years, we have seen the Finnish Cellular giants come up with a vast variety of devices that resonate with users of every generation. Even today, people from all walks of life are using a Nokia device whether its their ever renowned range of feature phones, the (now discontinued) Windows Phones or the latest range of Android devices. The year 2017 proved to be a historical year for the company as they FINALLY decided to launch their first ever range of devices running on Android. In association with HMD Global,  the initial devices that were launched were the mid range models comprising of the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6. This was later followed by the launch of their first flagship device the Nokia 8, a premium phone having all the oomph and style that you can expect from a Nokia device. Today we take a closer look at what Nokia has to offer in its flagship device of 2017. It’s been more than a month now since we got our hands on this beauty which indeed is a eye catcher for someone who sees it and especially holds in their hands for the first time. The Nokia 8 comes wrapped in an aluminium unibody design with metal edges, but while the back is metal too, the feel on the rear will depend on which finish you opt for. The device comes in different color and texture variants. There are steel and tempered blue colors, but both of these have a matt finish, and look a little bit lackluster when put next to the shiny copper and blue options. We are using the polished blue variant which by far is the best looking option available. You would definitely be needing a  cover for the device as at times it  gets quite slippery in the hands and is also prone to scratches.   Let us now look at the main attraction of the Nokia 8 which is the camera. Like most previous flagship devices that Nokia have produced, the major focus always remains on two things, aesthetics and the amazing cameras. The company hasn’t disappointed us this time as well in this regard. The Nokia 8 sports dual 13 MP rear cameras with Carl Zeiss Optics and a powerful 13 MP front facing camera for all you selfie lovers out there. One of the unique features of the Nokia 8 is “Bothie” which as the name implies, gives you the option to capture images using both the front...
