OPPO Pakistan Launches the Sleekest OPPO F17 Pro in a First-Ever Game Show Launch

Ultimate Sleek smartphone with a Premium Design
To achieve a category-leading 7.48mm ultra-thin and 164g ultra-lightweight body, F17 Pro uses an industry-leading design to optimize and fit the mainboard, battery, and other components into its slim design. Seen for the first time in a smartphone, F17 Pro introduces a thin 220 Degree Edge that also offers a more comfortable and smoother in-hand feel. This is thanks to F17 Pro’s Rounded edge design technique, which refracts light at the top of the rounded point to accentuate its thin appearance and accentuates the comfortable in-hand feel.

To ensure that users are fully immersed in their content, F17 Pro’s 16.34’’ dual punch-hole display comes with a brilliant FHD+ Super AMOLED Display with a large 90.7% screen-to-body ratio. The display uses Mini Dual-Punch Holes that boast the smallest segment of the camera (3.7mm diameter) and ensures that that the phone screen’s real estate is maximized so that you’re fully enjoying your video game and can see every detail in your shot.

The OPPO F17 Pro comes in two amazing colours. Magic Blue, showcases a unique blend of blue and purple colours that appear to reflect a new colour with every angle. Matte Black is a colour that screams prestige and is inspired by high-end automobiles.

Ultimate Photography with Cutting-Edge Camera Technology
The front of the phone boasts a Dual Cam that empowers you to easily display beautiful selfie portraits that use hardware-level processing to add a bokeh effect to your photo. In fact, with Dual Lens Bokeh, you’re equipped not only to capture portrait selfie photographs, but the feature has been upgraded to support both videos and multiple-people in the shot.

But a bokeh effect is just a taste of the several ways you can enjoy your photography skills to capture clearer and more colourful portraits that empower you to express your creativity. AI Portrait Colour enables you to capture fashionable urban street style photos or travel photos from a new perspective by making portraits pop with colour. AI Portrait Colour mutes the background colours black and white while enhancing the natural colours of the person or a group of people within the photo using AI.

AI Super Clear Portrait guarantees that even the finest facial details like your eyebrow are clearly represented, or can even be reconstructed, while AI Beautification 2.0 enhances the natural skin tone and adds fuller and more pronounced eye features on women. On men, AI Beautification 2.0 enhances their eyes, beard, and eyebrows.

To empower you to capture the best low light portraits, AI Night Flare Portrait is an OPPO-exclusive feature that combines the bokeh effect and lowlight-HDR algorithms to capture artistic photos that add beautiful night flares on portrait photos shot against the backdrop of city lights. If bokeh effects aren’t your cup of tea, and you’re looking to capture a selfie in the evening, AI Super Night Portrait makes sure that your selfie results in a brightened and clear shot even in low light conditions.

Ultimate Fast Without Waiting on a Charge
30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 is OPPO’s proprietary rapid-charge technology that can quickly charge your phone even if you have just five minutes to spare in between a meeting or while you brew yourself a cup of coffee. With only a five-minute charge, you can either get four hours of talk time, two more hours to browse Instagram or 36 minutes of PUBG gaming. But it only takes 53 minutes to fully replenish your battery, or if you’re in the middle of an important game or video simply charge your phone without worrying whether your battery might run out faster than it charges.

F17 Pro even introduces ways to optimize your phone’s battery life during the day or while you’re asleep. At night, AI Night Charging uses AI Learning through machine learning to learn the user’s sleep habits and charge the phone exactly to 100% upon the moment they wake up from their slumber. In the worst-case scenario, if you’re without a battery charger during the day, Super Power Saving Mode optimizes the last 5% of your battery life by turning the display black and white, while running just six predetermined apps.

Ultimate Fast, Convenient, and Smooth User Experience
F17 Pro is equipped with 8GB of memory, and 128GB of storage, which can be extended up to 512GB through a 3-Card Slot. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. F17 Pro’s Anti-Lag Algorithm can detect and clear data that cause memory errors, making stutters and freezes less likely. In addition to this, its Air Gestures lets you pick up calls without directly touching the phone by simply waving your hand as far as 20 cm or even 50 cm.

And if Air Gestures isn’t enough of a perk, you’ll enjoy the intuitive and simplified user interface in ColorOS 7.2’s Infinite Edge Design, or the ability to personalize your home screen with Artist Wallpapers, designed by renowned artists.

Market Availability
F17 Pro is available for Preorder from 13th October to 16th October and will be available in the markets in Pakistan starting 17th October 2020. It will come in two colours including Magic Blue, and Matte Black. All two colours will come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which can be expanded to support up to 512GB through a 3-Card Slot.

Amazon Prime Day 2020 is happening on October 13
Amazon Prime Day 2020 is happening on October 13

Speculations about Amazon Prime Day are happening for weeks, but on Monday morning this week, the e-commerce giant confirmed, “The shopping holiday will occur on October 13 and 14th this year, with select pre-Prime Day deals already available to shop right now. The timing shift was due to a delay in the supply chain for crucial products. This might as well be good news for buyers looking for a cheap holiday gift. And for those who aren’t already, a member should consider signing up for a 30-day free trial.

Amazon says the two-day shopping event will showcase “over one million deals across every category,” including brands like Panasonic, Roborock, Keurig, Under Armour, Coleman, Adidas, Lacoste, Marvel, Ticwatch, and more. Moreover, the e-commerce giant aims to support small businesses by providing Prime members with a $10 credit usable on Prime Day by spending $10 on Amazon’s individual small businesses.

Usually, Amazon hosts Prime Day in July, but it got delayed this year because of the Covid-19 global pandemic. The event usually makes excellent money for the company – confirming that Amazon sold more $6 billion worth of products. The Prime Day will start at 3AM ET on Tuesday, October 13 and will be held in the US, UK, UAE, Spain, Singapore, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria, Australia, Turkey, and Brazil.

Microsoft buys Bethesda for $7.5 billion

Bethesda – one of the industry’s most prominent publishers and owners of one of the most successful gaming series like Doom, Fallout, Skyrim, has now acquired by Microsoft. Microsoft’s priciest purchase, accounting for $7.5 billion, has shocked the industry and raised questions regarding Bethesda’s role in Microsoft’s overall Xbox strategy. Xbox has stated that its franchises will be added to its Game Pass subscription package for consoles and PCs.

This acquisition by Microsoft will help make the upcoming Xbox Series X and Series S more attractive than the PlayStation 5 to many players, both consoles set to launch in November. Game Pass enables players with access to more than 200 games, and Microsoft includes first-party titles at launch to those who signed up to the ultimate package without further cost. In comparison, Sony requires its players to pay to £70 for its significant releases and does not include new titles in its PlayStation Plus Collection Services.

In a recent statement, Xbox Chief Phil Spencer stated that two firms share similar versions for creators and their games to reach more players in more ways. However, it is unclear how the takeover impacts Bethesda’s plans to create The Elder Scrolls 6, Starfield, and other unfinished games. The senior vice president at Bethesda, Pete Hynes, said, “the deal offers access to resources that will make us a better publisher and developer.” “He also wrote in a blog, “We’re still working on the same games as we were yesterday, made by the same studios we’ve worked with for years, and those games will be published by us.”

TikTok and Oracle to become business partners in the US

TikTok – a top-rated video-sharing application has been a victim of numerous plot twists since August. President Donald Trump announced an executive order in August to ban the social media application over privacy concerns and its Chinese ownership unless TikTok was to be selling its US operations to an American company by September 20.

Microsoft was seen amongst the potential bidders for this application owned by Byte Dance. However, it is widely reported that TikTok has chosen Oracle over Microsoft to take over its US operations. The co-founders and CEO of Oracle both happen to be open supporters of Trumps’. But there’s an unexpected development – Oracle has instead offered TikTok to buy their rights to take over their US data operations, which Trump opposed when Microsoft has a similar plan, making the situation complicated.

As of Monday morning, Oracle stated, “Oracle confirms Secretary Mnuchin’s statement that it is part of the proposal submitted by ByteDance to the Treasury Department over the weekend in which Oracle will serve as the trusted technology provider. Oracle has a 40-year record providing secure, highly performant technology situations.”

In light of Oracle’s proposal, many questions are being raised as to why President Trump, in the first place, pressured TikTok to sell its operations in the US. It also raises confusion regarding whether the new proposal will address the security concerns that attracted the legislation to ban the application in the first place and if it will change how TikTok operates.

Former Facebook security chief Alex Stamos posted on Twitter, “A deal where Oracle takes over hosting without source code, and significant operational changes would not address any of the legitimate concerns about TikTok.” According to the Financial Times, crucial details are still being determined, and the President has yet to formally approve and announce the deal.
