Tech Mela – Pakistan’s Biggest Online Festival is starting from 11th Sep 2015

From 11 to 20 September 2015, the largest online tech shopping festival in Pakistan will be on at www.techmela.com. Dubbed ‘Tech Mela’, this Google-supported online shopping event will last for a total of 10 days and focus on exclusive, special deals and discounts of up to 30% on smartphones, gadgets and data and voice plans that are only available online during this special period. Tania Aidrus, Country Manager South Asia Frontier at Google had this to say:  “Pakistan’s mobile industry is really taking off with more and more people coming online and using their smartphones as their primary Internet device. It is absolutely the right time to hold this virtual shopping festival just before the traditional holiday and festive period of Eid-ul-Adha and what better way than to hold it completely online where the next wave of buyers will be congregating. With Internet penetration growing rapidly and the desire to purchase on the Internet increasing, we hope this initiative will bring more awareness and adoption of e-commerce in Pakistan.” She added: “The majority of digital consumers in Pakistan are already researching online to decide which device to purchase, and for the most part they find online resources more relevant and credible to their purchase journey;” said Tania, “Tech Mela is an initiative to complete the research and purchase loop, and we hope the exclusive deals will spur greater acceptance of e-commerce among even more Pakistanis.”  According to TNS Research, there are 30 million online users in Pakistan, half of whom are using mobile for the purpose. Google is teaming up with e-commerce partner and top online shopping destination Daraz.pk to make Tech Mela happen this week onwards. To make things even more exciting, aside from special deals Tech Mela will also feature deals from Huawei, Samsung and Microsoft and several exclusive mobile device launches to the Pakistan market by companies like Infinix and Injoo. So only 3 days left for the biggest “Online Tech Mela” in Pakistan. Do not miss it! Source: TECH...

Unveiling the Slimmer, Lighter and Tougher Infinix Zero 2

Unveiling the Slimmer, Lighter and Tougher Infinix Zero 2

So folks, the Infinix Zero 2 has finally launched in Pakistan. We already gave you a sneak peak of the Zero 2 device and our first impression but now its time to remove the curtains. The Infinix Zero 2 is built keeping in mind 3 things, a slim design, a lighter body and a tough shell. Display and Design   The Infinix Zero 2 comes with a 5 inch Samsung Super AMOLED HD display (1280×720), which shows vibrant colors with very less picture saturation. The contrast ratio is 30000:1 which you can actually tell when watching HD videos. The display is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra protection. The dimensions of the body are pretty slim (145*71.5*6.5 mm) and weighing just 118 grams, fits in the palm of your hand very well. The back of the device is its main attraction, the Zero 2 comes with a non-removable Kevlar back panel. According to the Infinix team, the material is 5 times stronger and lighter than steel, making the device pretty solid.  As the back panel does not open, the dual sim card tray is on the side of the device. While the other side houses the power button, volume buttons and microSD card tray slot. Under the Hood   The Infinix Zero 2 is no slouch when it comes to performance and power, this is due to the Media Tek 6592T 2.0 GHz Octa – Core processor with Mali 450 700 MHz GPU and 2GB DDR3 RAM. The specs seems capable enough to run even the most graphic hungry games. (Will test it out for our selves a bit later). On the memory front the device has 32GB of internal memory which has now become a standard in flagship devices. The device also houses a microSD card slot which supports up to 32GB. So, lots of memory there, which is a good thing, considering how good the cameras on the device are. Camera   The device houses a 13 Megapixel Samsung S5K3M2 CMOS sensor with f/2.0. This means the lens can take in 18% more light in, when taking pictures in dark places. Another impressive feature is the auto focus time. It is only 0.5 seconds, so the chances of a blurry image go down quite a bit.  The front of the device lies a 5 Megapixel 85 degrees wide angle camera, which when we tested was quite impressive. There are some fun features as well, one being if you think taking pictures by pressing a button or touching the screen is too main stream, then just wave or shout at the camera and it will take the picture. Cool right? Software...

Infinix had invited a few bloggers to get a sneak peak of their upcoming device the Zero 2. We don’t want to go in too much detail about the device before its launch, but our first impression was a pretty positive one. The device itself feels pretty sturdy thanks to its Kevlar back and bright Super AMOLED HD display. Florent Meng, Senior Digital Marketing Manager, had this to say; “Infinix is a brand whose structure is to focus on quality and not on quantity. They do not want to be like Samsung or QMobile who take out model after model. They want to have a much focused approach similar to Apple. In other words, We can do better when focused”.
