Huawei Offers Battery Replacement Service on Select Devices

Published

on

To reward its first smartphone customers in the UAE, Huawei has launched an AED 89 one-port battery replacement promo that lasts until March 31, 2019 and offers users authentic batteries at a reasonable price. A recent YouGov survey revealed that 9 in 10 respondents in the UAE own a smartphone, with respondents spending an average of 6.5 hours a day using their phones. Nowadays, smartphones have become an integral tool in people’s lives. “We rely on it to fulfil our various day to day needs and requirements, from business emails and personal chats, to professional photography and health tracking. Our smartphones are an indispensable personal assistant, so when it is time to give them an energy boost by updating the battery, how do we make sure we are offering them the best quality care?” said the company.

Currently, almost all mobile phones use undetachable battery design. Hence, it is not easy to replace the battery and improper operations may cause the phone to malfunction or even cause security problems. Moreover, the lifespan of the battery depends on multiple factors, including the way the consumer uses the device and the selected energy saving settings. That is why Huawei encourages its users to visit authorized Huawei service centers in order to provide them with expert advice on how to maintain their smartphone batteries, optimize their lifespan and ensure they are replaced using proper tools and processes by professionally trained Huawei staff that will dispose of the old battery in an environmentally friendly manner.

Protecting users’ security as well as the environment we live in are the driving forces behind Huawei’s ongoing efforts to educate consumers on the importance of battery maintenance at authorized centers and with minimum environmental impact. Until the end of March, consumers can visit the Huawei service centers and replace their batteries for only AED 89, allowing them to play a valuable part in protecting their ecosystem.

David Wang, Country Manager at Huawei CBG UAE, commented, “At Huawei, we place a great importance on building the trust of our users and establishing solid communication channels. From offering customers expert advice during their hands-on discovery of our products at the Huawei Experience Stores and providing them with the utmost professional maintenance service at our authorized centers, to continuously sharing vital updates and information that guarantees they are making use of all the innovative technologies their smartphones are packing.”

He continued, “As part of Huawei’s social responsibility mission, we are equally dedicated to making environmentally friendly choices, which is why educating our customers about the importance of battery maintenance and correct replacement is a priority. Un-official channels can damage the devices, cause performance problems, put users’ security at risk and provide poor quality batteries that might have not undergone the strict standard tests Huawei follows during production. Not to mention that unauthorized service centers might not be equipped or committed to safely disposing or recycling the replaced batteries, therefore harming the environment and subsequently the users.  That is why we recommend all our customers to visit our authorized Huawei Service Centers.”

During the installation and removal of batteries, if the maintenance personnel disassemble the phone without using maintenance tools for Huawei products or following maintenance processes that comply with the company’s standards, then the battery and other components may be damaged, and security cannot be guaranteed. In addition, if users select an unauthorized channel to replace or repair the battery, the phone will be out of warranty.

The AED 89 battery replacement promo is offered for 15 models and it will be available until 31 March 2019. Below is the list of eligible smartphones:

Sony Launches FE 24-50mm F2.8 G, a Compact, Large Aperture F2.8 G Lens with High-Performance Optics

Published

on

Sony Middle East and Africa has announced the release of its new compact 35mm full-frame compatible α (Alpha) E-mount lens, FE 24-50mm F2.8 G (product name SEL2450G) standard zoom with F2.8 maximum aperture over the entire zoom range. Despite its small and lightweight body, it achieves the high-resolution performance and beautiful bokeh that can be expected from a large aperture G Lens with F2.8. It covers a focal length of 24 mm to 50 mm, allowing you to capture everything from still images such as everyday snapshots, and portraits to video shooting, all in high quality but with a design that will easily fit in the smallest of kit bags.

With the latest optical and mechanical design, the dimensions have been kept compact with a filter diameter of φ67 mm, maximum diameter of 74.8 mm, length of 92.3 mm, and weight of approximately 440 g. Sharp and detailed images at all focal lengths are achieved thanks to the arrangement of four aspherical lenses and two pieces of ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, so that aberrations such as chromatic aberration, are reduced, achieving high-resolution performance from the centre to the corner. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G uses an 11-blade circular aperture which together with the optimisation of spherical aberration provides the beautiful, soft and smooth bokeh that is characteristic of the G Lens series. It has a minimum shooting distance of 0.19 m (AF) at the wide end and a maximum magnification of 0.30 x (AF) offering high-quality close-up shooting.

The quality is evident through the AF (auto focus) whereby, equipped with two linear motors, it achieves high speed, high precision, high tracking, and quiet focusing. It also supports high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking of up to 120 frames per second for the full-frame mirrorless camera Alpha 9 III. For those wanting a solid video performance, AF tracking is available for high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movie recording where critical focus control is required, plus it supports in-body Active Mode image stabilisation for steady shooting while walking. It is also compatible with the focus breathing compensation on camera bodies, allowing for high-quality video expression.

Intuitive manual focus is achieved thanks to the adoption of linear response MF which allows smooth and superior image expression. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G is equipped with user-friendly functions such as a customisable focus hold button, aperture ring, aperture click ON/OFF switch, and focus mode switch, offering high operability and comprehensive control. Plus, for further ease of use, they are designed to be dust and moisture-proof with a fluorine coating which prevents dirt from sticking to the front surface of the lens.

 The new FE 24-50mm F2.8 G will be available in the region from Q2 2024.

Published

on

HONOR has introduced an AI-powered eye-tracking feature that can move a car without a driver inside. This experiment, demonstrated by an automotive engineer, uses the eye-tracking feature of the HONOR Magic6 Pro to control a car based on the user’s eye movement.

A video by Autocar, available on YouTube, showcases this innovative technology. The HONOR Magic6 Pro is equipped with four commands that can be activated by eye gaze, allowing the car to start the engine, turn it off, and move forward or backwards. After focusing on a specific button for 2-3 seconds, the corresponding command is activated, and the car responds accordingly.

HONOR says that this demonstration is a testament to the company’s belief that AI can transform the way humans interact with devices in the future. HONOR has announced that its MWC Launch Event will be on February 25th. HONOR will also host an AI Panel with industry partners such as Qualcomm to unveil more discoveries about the future of AI. This event will take place on February 26th at 17:00 (CET) at MWC 2024. Find out more at this link: https://www.hihonor.com/ae-en/events/honor-mwc/
