Hot on the heels of launching OPPO F17 Pro, OPPO Sri Lanka is launching its latest model in the F series OPPO F17 in Sri Lanka. “OPPO F17 carries the F-series gene, combining outstanding design while extending its focus into Fast Charge and seamless entertainment. For users whose phones are always within arm’s reach, F17 incorporates a suite of features that makes sure your eyes are always cared for as it satisfies your recreational needs,” commented Bob Li, CEO of Xinda Lanka (OPPO Sri Lanka) at the launch.
With leather-like back cover and the laser-engraved patterns which make the phone look like a trendy fashion accessory, the OPPO F17 is a light smartphone that provides a sense of novelty and luxury while giving users a way to elegantly stand out. The smartphone comes in two colors – Navy Blue and Dynamic Orange.
Another element that enhances the sense of luxury is the camera design on the back cover, which showcases a perfectly balanced four camera 2×2 array design that’s inspired by high-end watches. The 2.5D curved body gives this phone a simpler style and flatter body than conventional 3D curved designs. This one-piece body provides a new, unique aesthetic for mobile phones and provides users a better feel when they’re holding the phone. And to complete the stylish look, F17’s middle frame incorporates a thin design that uses narrower and more delicate front bezel, resulting in a thinner and lighter body.
F17’s 4015mAh battery (typical) uses 30W VOOC Flash Charge which allows for a full charge in just 56 minutes, or 72% in only 30 minutes. OPPO F17 also provides additional battery saving technology like Super Power Saving Mode which extends the low battery through a series of power saving strategies upto 17 hours and Super Night-time Standby which perform ultra power saving optimization at night by learning the user’s sleeping habits.
Whilst F17’s Sunlight Screen keeps your eyes comfortable by automatically adjusting the brightness in well lit environments to enhance screen visibility the AI Smart Backlight learns how you manually adjust your screen’s brightness in different scenarios. Moonlight Screen automatically sets your screen’s lowest brightness and F17’s DC Dimming eliminates screen flickering to relieve the user’s eye strain when they watch videos or use social media apps.Rounding out the state-of-the-art display is F17’s In-display fingerprint scanner which provides advanced security for faster and more accurate recognition than side or back fingerprint detectors deliver.
As Hyper Boost 2.1 allows apps and games to respond quicker and the entire system to run more smoothly, 8GB memory with 128GB storage ensures that gaming experiences will have less lag even after the phone’s been in use for a while.
OPPO’s RAM+ anti-lag and OF2FS optimizes speed and performance by efficiently expanding the available memory in the system and improves the storage performance while alleviating lag caused by system aging.
Through OPPO F17’s Dual Channel Network Acceleration both Wi-Fi and the mobile network is leveraged to ensure high network stability especially when Wi-Fi is poor whilst Bullet Notifications and Floating Window Reply ensure that one will not be interrupted in the middle of a game.
The 16MP main camera in F17 is enhanced by AI Dazzle Color, a feature that makes colors more vibrant or beautifies portraits based on the surrounding environment brightness and colors through deep learning algorithms whilst making one look best with AI Beautification 2.0, which automatically removes blemishes, retains skin texture, and adjusts to the user’s skin color allowing for clearer and brighter photos.
Also, as Front Night Mode enables users to get clear selfies with rich details in dim environments, F17’s Steady Video Mode leverages Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) to output stable and clear videos in dynamic scenes. Furthermore, the first-party Soloop video editing app easily enables users to generate complete short videos to be uploaded onto short video platforms using only one tap.
ColorOS 7.2 in OPPO F17 delivers practical features that will continue to delight users. Whilst the Icon Pull-Down Gesture allows users to open hard-to-reach apps at the top of the home screen when they only have one hand free to hold and control the phone the 3-finger Screenshot feature empowers users to grab as much or as little of the content they see on their screen for future reference or to share with their friends.
Sri Lanka’s economic confidence index plummets
‘No one has rated Sri Lanka’s economic condition as excellent. 1.8 % rated it as good and 1.3 % rated it as getting better. The resulting score was a (-) 96. This rating was (-) 83 in January 2022, a wide ranging Verite Research public opinion survey reveals.
Key findings of the survey:
Government approval rating drops from 10% to 3%
The second round of the Gallup Style “Mood of the Nation” poll was conducted in June by Verité Research. It assessed the approval, satisfaction, and confidence of the nation in relation to the government, the country, and the economy.
The poll was conducted as a part of the syndicated survey instrument by Verité Research. This instrument also provides other organisations the opportunity to survey the sentiments of Sri Lanka.
1. Government approval rating | 3% | To the question, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way the current government is working?” only 3% said they approve. In January 2022 this rating was at 10%.
2. Sri Lanka satisfaction | 2% | To the question, “In general, are you satisfied or dissatisfied with the way things are going in Sri Lanka?” only 2% said they were satisfied. This rating was at 6% in January 2022.
3. Economic confidence | negative (-) 96 | Multiple choice questions on the condition and trajectory of the economy are used to generate an economic confidence score. The score can range from negative (-) 100 to positive (+) 100. A score above zero means more people see the economic conditions positively rather than negatively. If everyone thinks the economy is in either excellent or good condition, and everyone also thinks it is getting better, the score will be (+) 10. If everyone thinks that the economy is in a poor condition, and everyone also thinks it is getting worse, the score will be a (-) 100. No one rated the economic condition as excellent. 1.8% rated it as good; and 1.3% rated it as getting better. The resulting score was a (-) 96. This rating was (-) 83 in January 2022.
Implementation of “Mood of
The poll is based on an island wide nationally representative sample of responses from 1,052 Sri Lankan adults, conducted in June 2022. The sample and methodology was designed to ensure a maximum error margin of under 3% at a 95% confidence interval. The polling partner was Vanguard Survey (Pvt) Ltd.
Decline in share market in the wake of rate hike reports
By Hiran H.Senewiratne
CSE trading activities began on a positive note yesterday but during the latter part of the day the market experienced a dip on account of the overall supply chain economy being subjected to a contraction, stemming from the fuel crisis. Consequently, CSE activities were relatively low keyed, market analysts said.
“We are reverting to the negative. There is uncertainty on all fronts, from the political to the economic. Therefore, we are expecting a rate hike on Thursday. This is creating a bit of a cloud and we may see this continuing further, a top market analyst said.
Even if top level decision- making is happening in Sri Lanka the impact is not felt at the grassroots level. This has resulted in unrest in the country, the analyst said.
Amid those developments, both indices moved downwards. The All- Share Price Index went down by 97.9 points and S and P SL20 declined by 34.3 points. Turnover stood at Rs 1.3 billion with one crossing. The crossing was reported in JKH, which crossed 600,000 shares to the tune of Rs 73.2 million, its shares traded at Rs 122.
In the retail market, the top seven companies that mainly contributed to the turnover were; Lanka IOC Rs 611 million (7.3 million shares traded), Expolanka Holdings Rs 173.9 million (one million shares traded). LOLC Holdings Rs 47.4 million (120,000 sha4es traded), Hayleys PLC Rs 46.5 million (697.000 shares traded), Browns Investments Rs 46.3 million (6.4 million shares traded), JKH Rs 21 million (173,000 shares traded) and Softlogic Holdings Rs 20.5 million (794,000 shares traded). During the day 109 million share volumes changed hands in 15000 transactions.
The International Monetary Fund said last Thursday its talks with crisis-hit Sri Lanka had been “constructive”, thereby raising hopes it would soon grant preliminary approval for a desperately needed financial support package, observers said.
Meanwhile, the Colombo Consumer Price index rose 54.6 per cent year-on-year in June against a 39.1 per cent rise in May, according to the Statistics Department.
Yesterday the US dollar rate was Rs 360.73, which is now being controlled due to the prudent fiscal and monetary policies of the Central Bank.
