0

While the year is coming to the end soon, realme fans still have a couple of things to look forward to. Pakistan’s youth’s favorite mobile brand realme confirmed realme 5s launch on December 23.

realme will be sticking to its affordable roots and keeping prices within striking distance of each other. Pakistani youth’s favored smartphone brand realme has quickly snatched market share from existing players and is fast becoming one of the most sought after brands.

realme Pakistan has already started been teasing details about the Realme 5s  display, battery and processor. According to the teaser page, the upcoming handset will sport a 6.5-inch HD display, a 5,000mAh battery, and a 48-megapixel quad camera.

 The Realme 5s is essentially a successor to realme 5. The new Realme 5s swaps out the 12-megapixel main camera for a 48-megapixel main camera at the back. Realme 5s carries Samsung made 48-megapixel GM1 sensor for the main camera, which will allow for pixel binning to offer higher details and more sharpness.

Similar to the standard Realme 5, the 5s also features a 6.5-inch HD display resolution. Corning Gorilla Glass 3+ is coated on top for protection against accidental damage and scratches.

The device offers an 89 percent screen-to-body ratio. The Realme 5s retains the same design language from the standard model. It flaunts the brand’s signature diamond-cut pattern on the back. There is a fingerprint scanner in the center and camera setup located at the top left corner. The smartphone might come in two color options – Crystal Blue and Crystal Red.

Underneath, the Realme 5s is powered by a Snapdragon 665 chipset paired with 4GB RAM as standard and up to 128GB storage. Users will be able to expand up to 256GB via micro SD card. The phone thrives on a 5000mAh battery with a 10W fast charging system. 4GB+128GB variant will be available in Pakistan.

Since its entry into the Pakistani market less than 11 months ago, realme powered by Oppo, has already launched 8 products across different price segments from premium flagships to trendy mid-rangers, all designed particularly for the youth.

They are also gearing up for the launch of their latest additions in the classic realme series in the coming months. realme is proving it has planned an even steeper growth trajectory than its parent company through a targeted focus on the youth.

5 Best Korean Drama OST that You Need to Listen!

0
Best Korean Drama OST

This list of Best Korean Drama OST has been compiled after having watched more than 500 South Korean dramas. In 2014, I was also very skeptical of people in this fandom, but a close friend told me to be more open to other cultures.

I also couldn’t understand the craze behind watching people who talked in a foreign language. I couldn’t have been more wrong about stereotypes and once I started watching I realized I had been missing out on great viewership and entertainment.

After having watched a huge number of K-dramas, it’s been difficult to shortlist just 5 Original Soundtracks (OSTs) as each one has more than 10 soundtracks. This list has been compiled after much thought process and is unbiased (well as much as it can be).

Here goes:

5. ‘Its You’ by Henry

On number 5 we have ‘It’s you’ By Henry in the popular Korean drama  ‘While you were Sleeping.’ This song is not really Korean. It’s in English but it just strikes a chord close to the heart. Imagine if the second OST of the drama is this good, the first would have been even better.

4. Stand By Me by Shinee

As my journey into Korean fandom continued, this song, in particular, introduced me to my ultimate Korean boy band, Shinee. This song  ‘Stand by me even if I don’t know its love, yet.’ is so relatable – Isn’t this a feeling all of us have had at least once in our lives?

3. Always by Yoon Mi Rae

One day you came to me like a dream and shook my heart!

Can you imagine not falling in love with lyrics like these? For this one, I suggest listening with subtitles and you will find yourself dissolving in it. This song is the title OST of my favorite drama ‘Descendants of the Sun’. It has been vocalized by Yoon Mi Rae whose heartfelt voice can grasp your attention even if you don’t understand the language.

2. Every time by Punch and Chen

The descendant of the Sun has had a clear advantage, I agree. Having been financed by Chinese businesses, the drama had all the budget it needed unlike others and has therefore been produced with utmost perfection. Having singers like Punch on board for the cute love story of an army officer and a civilian doctor who get to work together (the ultimate cliché), one sits through the whole video and listens to the song.

1. Stay with Me by Chanyeol and Punch

When the rap God and the queen of Kdrama OSTs come together to perform for the series ‘Goblin’, you get the ultimate masterpiece that can never be topped by any other song. My relationship with this song is so strong that in my most troubled times, the starting beat from the one-second marker brings a smile to my face every time.

In conclusion, Best Korean drama OST have a feel-good rhythm to them and their lyrics are relatable. Once you listen to these songs you will not be able to stop yourself from diving into the fandom and if you are already a part of it, then please tell in the comments if you agree with the list.

T H E E N D And so this journey officially comes to an end. It has been a long time since we both realised that our paths are destined to be separate. After multiple attempts and much consideration we have called it quits. I am sharing this on social media because I'm tired of answering questions about my status and going through interrogations about why. I’m tired of people’s opinions and involvement. I'm tired of pretending that things are ok so that I can keep a facade going. I'm tired of people assuming that I'm engaged or getting married. There was a proposal but unfortunately it did not materialise due to irreconcilable differences. I would like to request everyone to just let this difficult time pass as our friends and families are involved and I don't want them to go through any further pain or disappointment.

Hareem Shah Mobbed

Hareem Shah kicked up a storm recently after her Tik Tok video shot at a conference room in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) went viral.

Soon enough, Hareem Shah started trending on Twitter. Everyone wanted to know who the Tik Tok star was and how she got access to such an important government office.

Shah has been under limelight ever since and recently the Pakistani TikTok starlet stated that she was mobbed by a large number of people at a mall opening event in Dubai. As per the TikTok star, some men from the mob even pushed and kicked her while she tried to cover herself.

Whether you’re a TikTok star, a local citizen or any other top celebrity – sexual harassment is simply unacceptable and sadly in Pakistan there’s no specific legislation that labels sexual harassment outside of workspaces as a crime.

Hareem expressed her disappointment in a tweet

While stating: “I was invited as a guest at the opening of Oasis Mall in Dubai. Hundreds of Pakistani men hurled abuses, pushed & some even kicked me. Is this how you treat your women??”

Just a few days ago Hareem shared a video of being inappropriately touched by a stranger at a local event in Peshawar.

And then there is a rush of comments under her tweet

And then the usual “He did by Mistake” comment

Hareem Shah always finds herself in the middle of a controversy and sadly gets fame for all the wrong reasons. Moreover, recently in a video that surfaced on the internet, the TikTok star was seen dancing with an MPA of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) from Gilgit-Baltistan at a private hotel.

Furthermore, she also gained popularity when a video clip of someone pretending to be Hareem Shah on Twitter showed the cricketer Shaheen Afridi behaving inappropriately during a video call.

Hareem Shah has become one of the walking controversies of Pakistan and the masses have a love-hate relationship with this TikTok celebrity. What do you think about Shah?

The water supply will be affected for almost 12 hours from 8 am to 8 pm. The areas that will be deprived of the water supply on December 17th will be Landhi, Malir, and Korangi areas. Also, a number of residential blocks of Federal B Area, Shadman Town, Nusrat Bhutto Colony, and blocks J, N, M and L in North Nazimabad area of the city.

“This suspension will be due to a repair work aimed at installation of a butterfly valve at the water supply line in order to improve supply in the area,”-By the Spokes Man of KWSB

It is advised to the citizens to use their water reserves mindfully during the hours of water shortage.



December 10, 2019: Water and electricity supply to be suspended in the city of Karachi for 12 hours today (December 10th,2019) in an account of annual maintenance.

As per the details, the K.E will maintain its electric feeder throughout the city as a yearly exercise, relegating the power to 12 hours in different areas, from 8 am in the morning to 8 pm in the evening.

The Dhabaji pumping station will go under the same process and two of the main pumps will remain closed adjourning the water supply to the city, The rest of the pumping stations will be operational but supply will low.

The Managing Director of Karachi Water and Sewerage Board, Asadullah in a statement said that people should store an adequate amount of water till the maintenance work is ongoing so that they are not met with undue discomfort.



October 15th, 2019: The water situation in Karachi is bad. Well, it was never too great, to begin with.

Work on the Greater Karachi Water Supply Scheme, also called K-IV, has been stopped for long. The provincial government had missed several deadlines it had given for completion of the project and there has been no update on when the work will resume.

Over the weekend, CM Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah spoke to reporters about making required amendments in the route of the K-IV project so that it can be resumed.

“Being an engineer and finance minister in 2014, I had raised objections on the route and said that the storm-water drains were running along the route and would definitely affect the K-IV canal,” he said. “But at that time my objections and I were considered as an opponent of the project.”

To make the already uncertain situation worse, Karachi Water and Sewerage Board announced yesterday that, due to scheduled maintenance work at the water station, water supply to 13 Karachi water pumps (out of 21) from its strategic Dhabeji Pumping Station would remain partially suspended for around 16 hours by October 16th.

The board officials have assured that all possible efforts will be made to get the job done in time so as to not have the citizens suffer too much, considering the already bad situation in the city.

Well, let us just be grateful that we have at least been informed beforehand and hope it passes soon without creating too much chaos.

  • OPPO aims to build an integrated technology model to drive change and improvement of customer value
  • A new line of smartwatches, smart wireless headphones and 5G CPE products to be launched in the first quarter of 2020

At the event, OPPO also showcased a variety of smart devices including smartwatches, smart headphones, 5G CPE, AR glasses along with key technological breakthroughs in areas such as flash charging, 5G, imaging, and software optimization.

The event served as a platform for industry experts, partners, and key opinion leaders to elaborate on the future of technology. To introduce, in his keynote speech, Tony Chen, Founder, and CEO, OPPO said, “as the adoption of 5G and AI ramp up, intelligent connectivity is increasingly within reach. We believe the concept of connection is just the foundation, whereas the integration and convergence of things will be the future.

The concept of intelligent connectivity consists of four key parts, including the convergence of technology and service, the convergence of organization, the convergence of culture and the convergence of technology, arts, and humanities.”

Chen also said that “OPPO has been more than just a phone maker from the outset. In fact, smartphones have simply been a gateway for OPPO to deliver a diverse portfolio of technological services. For OPPO and even the entire industry, there won’t be any company solely focusing on smartphones.”

The three key strategies for the era of Intelligent Connectivity

In the next 3 years, Chen announced an R&D budget of RMB 50 billion (about USD $7 billion) will be set aside to develop core technologies in hardware, software and system in addition to 5G/6G, AI, AR, big data and other frontier technologies.

In order to seize 5G opportunities, OPPO plans to implement three key strategies. For a start, the company will remain committed to core technology R&D to develop world-leading tech; second, OPPO will build a multi-portal ecosystem of intelligent devices with smartphones serving as the key gateway; and finally, OPPO will continue to rethink user service and optimize its content and service offerings.

Building an integrated technology system to power immersive and personalized 5G experiences

Levin Liu, OPPO Vice President and Head of OPPO Research Institute said in his keynote speech, “As the importance of convergence between technologies and services becomes essential,  OPPO is building an integrated technology model that covers five spheres, namely: equipment, data, computing, services, and scenarios.

The model, in which 5G and AI serve as the infrastructure and our core capacities, integrates all technologies to create an all-around consistent technological experience. OPPO will follow a “three circle scenarios” roadmap that covers personal scenarios, vertical scenarios, and convergent scenarios to plan its future lineup of devices.”

With this, Liu added that OPPO plans to launch smartwatches, smart wireless headphones and 5G CPE in Q1, 2020.

Working with partners to realize the era of intelligent connectivity

During the event, OPPO and IHS Markit, a leading global information provider, jointly released the whitepaper titled, “Intelligent Connectivity: Unleashing Opportunities with the Power of 5G, AI and Cloud.” By illustrating the trends and prospects of the industry in the era of intelligent connectivity powered by 5G, the whitepaper provides suggestions and guidelines for the future development of an intelligent and converged ecosystem.
