First, to help general users by democratizing the experience of professional photography, making it easy for them to create high-quality photos and videos with nothing but their smartphone. Secondly, to bring a more customized shooting experience for pros who want to use their Galaxy smartphone as a professional tool. To do that, they focus on three key areas: the best shooting and viewing experience, ease of use, and controllability.

Huawei’s Ken Hu: 5G will creates new value and growth 


At the recent 11th Annual Mobile Broadband Forum, Huawei's Deputy Chairman Ken Hu spoke with leaders in the telecoms and digital technology sectors about the new value that 5G can bring to different industries around the globe.

Huawei's Ryan Ding: Maximizing Wireless Network Value for a Golden Decade of 5G


At the 2020 Global Mobile Broadband Forum (MBBF), Huawei's Executive Director and President of the Carrier Business Group Ryan Ding gave his keynote speech "Maximizing Wireless Network Value for a Golden Decade of 5G". Ding said that the coming decade will be a golden age for 5G's progress around the world, and that the whole industry must have faith in 5G, build the best 5G networks, and make the most of them for shared value.

Ding emphasized that developing industrial 5G applications is an industry-wide effort, rather than just carriers' responsibility. Accelerating this development is only possible when telecommunications integrates with other industries. In the recently frozen Release 16, 3GPP added an improved standard for broadcasting services and 5G functions like location and ultra-low air interface latency. Upcoming releases, including Release 17, will address additional industry needs.

At the end of his speech, Ding stated that the next decade will be a golden age for 5G. The whole industry needs to have faith, build the best networks possible for consumers, and nurture new capabilities for industry customers to maximize the value of wireless networks for a golden decade of 5G.

GrabFood reduces delivery fees and expands food courts 

Since introducing RM2 delivery fees on GrabFood back in June, orders on the platform with delivery fees below RM5 grew by more than 3X in Klang Valley. With a clear growth for cheaper delivery fees from nearby restaurants, Grab is once again introducing lower delivery fees, by subsidizing delivery fees for both customers and delivery riders. This ensures that while customers are able to enjoy lower delivery fees, delivery-partners’ income will not be affected. Delivery fees nationwide for customers favourite eats will now be as low as 50 cents for selected restaurants less than 1.5 km away.  

Following the success of the first Food Court initiative, ‘Food Courts by GrabFood’ is expanding to more locations nationwide which will see over 100 food courts and close to 900 hawker vendors across the country adopting the ‘mix & match’ feature by the end of the year. The feature which was introduced earlier this year allows users to order from multiple stalls within a food court and only pay one delivery fee. This will give these vendors the avenue to maintain their operations despite having a loss in dine in customers. In tandem, this also allows users to support local and traditional eateries affordably while still practicing social distancing.

Special: Need to Step Up Your Vlogging Game? Here are 5 Steps From OPPO


Our smartphones have become an essential part of life, especially with fleeting moments investing in a good camera is necessity. A full proof camera that assist your creativity is all you need to help you shoot awesome videos, the camera experts at OPPO have come up with five easy tips to make your vlogs look on fleek all day, every day. 

Step 1 : Add an artistic touch

Curious on how movie scenes are captured so perfectly like it was just meant to be ?

Apart from the years spent honing their craft, the tools and software that filmmakers have at their disposal is key in enabling them to create those iconic scenes that we get to know and love. The technique of isolating color has been employed by filmmakers to highlight the plot or relay hidden messages, or just make a character stand out against a crowd.

With AI Color Portrait and Monochrome Video Mode on the OPPO Reno4 series, you can now do the same with your smartphone and no edits required! Plus point? We think so. Simply bring your subject into focus when in AI Color Portrait Mode or select colors like red, green, blue while recording in Monochrome Video Mode to make your subject pop!



Protip: For AI Color Portrait - Observe the colors around you to ensure that they differ from the colors on your subject for the best results. The best outcome is if the subject has a mixtured of bright vibrant colours.


Step 2: Slow down time for dramatic shots

As the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun. However, the OPPO Reno4 series enables you to capture those fun moments and slow it down for you to enjoy every detail of it!

Packed with an AI-powered slow-motion video recording feature, the OPPO Reno4 series unlocks new possibilities for content creation. Capture the finer details - the beauty of a raindrop as it hits the ground or the turn of a Formula1 racer as it whizzes by the track in our 960fps AI Slow-motion mode.

Tracking fast objects isn’t easy, but don’t worry as the Reno4 series’ slow-motion capture feature has you covered. While recording the focus will automatically lock on the moving object, reducing the margin for error while filming.

The 960fps AI Slow-motion feature also automatically recognizes motion, so once you switch this feature on, it can automatically detect that dramatic moment and slow it down!



Timing is key when capturing objects that move fast. Hence, run some tests before filming the actual footage. Practice tracking and panning in the direction the object is moving towards - this will help keep the object you’re filming focused in the center of your screen to produce jaw-dropping shots!


Step 3 :Capture extreme footages without a gimbal

In an action film, car chases and fight sequences are key elements that provide an immersive experience. But owning a professional gimbal is not for everybody, especially those who are exploring videography.

This is where the OPPO Reno4 series Ultra Steady Video 3.0 Mode will come in handy for all you aspiring action directors. Powered by its in-built electronic image stabilization (EIS) technologies, the Reno4 series can accurately sense and reduce any shake from your hands, allowing you to capture adrenaline-pumping action with ease.

Vloggers and live-streamers will also appreciate this feature that is available on the front-facing camera. You can now share the energy and adrenaline rush you are experiencing with your fans without the blur in your vlogs or videos! 



Recording your off-road activities or an intense extreme sports session? Switch your frame rate to 60fps and turn on Ultra Steady Video Pro for buttery smooth videos!


Step 4 : Are you Afraid of the Dark ? Don’t be!

Every photographer, amateur or pro, will tell you that lighting is key to recording outstanding photos. This comes as a no-brainer, but there are still ways for you to capture stunning images even during the night.

Many of us struggle with taking selfies and wefies at night as it tends to result in underexposed and grainy photos. Fret not now, as the Reno4 series’ Ultra Dark Mode and Ultra Night Selfie Mode helps make your shots bright, even in extreme low light environments. To bring your night photography up a notch, OPPO has also introduced its new Night Flare Portrait Mode which adds a bokeh effect against a vivid background to produce eye-catching results!  


Select a location that has a busy street or the city lights as the backdrop to achieve the best shots with Night Flare Mode. Alternatively, you can use candles, sparklers or fairy lights to achieve similar effects.


Step 5 : Produce your own video at ease with Soloop

Everyone knows that the key to creating an outstanding video is adding the right sound and visual effects — but it can be a pain to send all your videos to your desktop, look for the right video editing program, and fiddle with a mountain of settings just to make your vlog on point.

These pains disappear with the OPPO Reno4 series! Not only do they come with a great set of cameras to capture sharp footage — they also sport processors powerful enough to help you edit your videos on the go! Just add your videos to the Soloop Smart Video Editor app to put on the finishing touches in a jiffy. Developed independently by OPPO’s ColorOS team, Soloop turns your footage into a professional looking vlog by adding music, filters, subtitles, captions and transitions — perfect for making your videos go viral on TikTok or YouTube.

Soloop can even help sort your footage and apply all these professional effects automagically! The app does all the work for you by intelligently picking the most exciting clips from your footage, enhancing it with music and editing them to match the beat of the track perfectly. With a multitude of themes and smart templates on board, there’s no lack of ways to express your creativity through editing.


If you’re intending to view your masterpiece on a TV, make sure to select the right aspect ratio number, located at the top of Soloop’s interface! 16:9 and 4:3 works best for big screens like monitors, while 3:4 and 9:16 will make your videos look great on a phone. There’s also a 1:1 aspect ratio that’s perfect for Instagram and Facebook!


These five simple and easy tips are a great way to up your game on TikTok, Instagram or YouTube. Ready to get hands on? Try these tips out on the OPPO Reno4 and the OPPO Reno4 Pro today. The in-built cameras, photography or videography software, and high quality display make the OPPO Reno4 series your perfect content creation companion!
