Mi 6 sold out in One Week in Pakistan

KARACHI, Aug 27 2017— Xiaomi’s official distributor Smart Link Technologies announced the fast sold out for the latest innovative products Mi 6, Mi Max 2 which were launched a week ago during an event at Beach Luxury Hotel Karachi.

Known worldwide as the mastermind behind quality, innovation and creative thinking, Xiaomi has once again revolutionized the way Pakistanis utilize smart phone technology. Keeping the company’s value driven strategy alive, Smart Link Technologies, the official distributor of Xiaomi, have launched two latest smartphones Mi 6 and Mi Max 2, and a bucketful of Mi Ecosystem products throughout Pakistan starting Aug 21.
All these products are available on http://www.mistore.pk and http://www.daraz.pk

Director Marketing, Mr. Ahmed Butt said “Xiaomi is bringing their flagship smartphones for the first time in Pakistan. We have no doubt that these flagship phones are going be the disrupter in the market for bringing the most innovative technology at such an amazing price.”

Priced from Rs. 46,999, Mi 6 is a performance beast powered by the Qualcomm’s lightning-fast Snapdragon 835 and a startling 6GB RAM. The four-sided curved glass body and stainless steel frame house a gorgeous 5.15″ display.

Mi 6 comes with wide angle and telephoto lenses used to incredible effect, particularly the ability to shoot beautiful portraits with out-of-focus backgrounds. The two lenses allow Mi 6 to calculate what is in the foreground and what is in the background, creating a depth of field effect that typically requires a DSLR camera to achieve. In addition, an improved Beautify mode that makes selfies look more natural, now works with the rear camera on Mi 6. Mi 6 also features 2x optical zoom, which makes sure photos of distant subjects remain clear, while 10x digital zoom is also supported. Mi 6 also comes with four-axis OIS so images and videos remain sharp, reducing the effect of handshake or motion.

Xiaomi and Smart Link have also launched Mi Max 2 with a Rs. 34,900 in Pakistan. With a 6.44-inch supersized screen, Mi Max 2 is perfect for watching movies or TV shows on the go. In addition, the dual speakers on Mi Max 2 intelligently activate in landscape orientation, transforming it into a mobile theater with an immersive audio experience.
Thanks to MIUI optimizations, Mi Max 2 is great for use in any situation. With “One-handed mode”, which is a feature that makes the usable display smaller, users can still navigate with ease using just one hand. With “Split screen”, two applications are able to run in the foreground, letting users make full use of the large 6.44-inch display. For instance, a user can watch a video using the top half of the screen while replying to messages in the lower half.

Mi Max 2 is powered by a massive 5300mAh two-day battery, which provides up to 18 hours of video playback, 21 hours of GPS navigation, or 57 hours of talktime. The huge battery means that Mi Max 2 can even charge other smartphones connected to its USB Type-C port. Despite the large capacity, Mi Max 2 is able to charge 68% in one hour as it supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 with parallel charging, which allows fast charging while controlling temperature increase.

“Mi6 and Mi Max 2 are very strategic models for Mi. These are high end models with best in class features and extremely competitive prices. With strong products like these, Mi is surely destined to create waves in the industry.” Director Sales and Strategy, Mr. Zain Aftab said.

 

Smart Link has also introduced lots of amazing Xiaomi eco products including high capacity Mi Power banks, Mi bands, Headphones and Earphones, Mi Bluetooth Speakers, Desk Lamps, and the Amazfit PACE.

Life Needs Flavor

Lays is about to release two new flavors in Pakistan; Lays Thai Chili and Mexican Paprika. The campaign to introduce the flavors is called “Life needs flavor”

It is essential to add different colors, different flavors in life and therefore, people who wants to experience something different or new should stay excited for the new flavors.

The thing that is keeping my interest is the name of flavors. “Lays Thai Chili” and “Mexican Paprika” which means these flavors must be inspired by the foods and flavors of Thailand and Mexico and we all know how amazing the food in those countries taste.

Teaching Kids to be Kind

I’ve seen parents teaching kids to be something extra-ordinary, to be a hero. To be like spider man or wonder woman but I’ve rarely seen them teaching their kids to be nice, to be kind to someone. We never take them out and teach them to appreciate nature. We don’t tell them to be nice to a stray cat or a horse.

Few days back I took my cousin out to Lake view and bird park in Islamabad to show her this aspect of life. We are so glued with our phones, tvs and other devices that the other values, the important ones are fading away from our lives. I wanted her to know kindness.

She was happy to be with the birds and loving how every bird was running towards her for the food she had in her hands. It was my 5 year old’s first encounter with birds, but she managed and fed birds quite happily. I loved how her big round eyes were shinning with happiness. Izna now knows the most important perspective of life which is to be kind and giving.

This is Pakistan Team for You, the World!

Everyone was heartbroken when we lost our first match against India. Pakistan’s performance was not only heart-wrenching it also made everyone concerned about the future of Pakistan cricket. The match was rather a one-sided affair and India outclassed Pakistan in every department comfortably enough.

Then next, Pakistan had to play against South Africa, the team ranked on the top and known to be the best. Everybody had low expectations, some didn’t even watch the match. But then, a miracle happened. We won against the best team with 19 runs under Duckworth-Lewis method.

Then they roared against Sri Lanka to enter semifinals. Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan turned the game entirely with their bowling. The game changing spell and Pakistan’s much improved performance made us win the game against Sri Lanka this time and the team entered the semifinals of ICC Champions Trophy 2017.

For finals, we had to beat England, which seemed nearly impossible. Facing and winning against the only unbeaten team in the champions trophy wasn’t easy but Pakistan team was motivated and determined. Raees, Fakhar and Hassan again became the source of our joy and played their part in winning against England. Everyone was amazed, stunned and surprised when the world’s 8th ODI team Pakistan chased down their target beautifully and defeated England.

The replacements were a good decision as well and helped us improve.  Fakhar, Raees, Hassan, Junaid Khan and Mohammad Amir won the hearts of millions of fans across Pakistan and we loved their motivation and winning attitude. The credit also goes to the coach Mickey Arthur who worked hard to make team what it is today.

This is Pakistan for you, my readers. Unpredictable yet brilliant. No one can believe that it is the same team who lost awfully against India in the first match. No body knew that they’d work their weaknesses out with determination and bounce back even stronger, more powerful than ever. The team who looked so fearful, not-so-motivated in the first match has transformed entirely into a fearless and motivated group of shaheens who are ready to fly high.

While fans are celebrating the magnificent win of Pakistan, India and Bangladesh are getting ready to face each other in the second semi-final of ICC Champions Trophy 2017. The winning team will play against Pakistan in the final. Fingers crossed and hopes are very high.
