Huawei unleash first high-end speakers

In Review: Huawei Sound X

Huawei is out with its first range of high end speakers. This should perfectly compliment its poular P series or its entry level smartphones, which is doing well given the pandemic calling on more people to safely work from home. 

Shake up your senses with Devialet dual subwoofersWe’ve joined forces with Devialet to engineer an audio experience you’ll feel as well as hear. Huawei Sound X harnesses the power of Devialet’s Speaker Active Matching (SAM®) technology, which tailors sound to the characteristics of the speakers. This means the dual subwoofers faithfully reproduce sound signals in real time, bringing you high fidelity audio exactly as it was meant to be heard. The bass hits as low as 40 hz, with a peak-to-peak amplitude of up to 20 mm, so you’ll see, hear and feel the vibrations.2

Small but mighty

Don’t underestimate it – HUAWEI Sound X packs a far more powerful punch than its small size would suggest. Its dual subwoofers are crafted from magnetic rare earth materials, giving them the power to create massive vibrations. They’re also hyper sensitive, producing enormous sound with minimal power input, so the speaker will blow you away with its sound, not its size.

Rock steady

HUAWEI Sound X delivers up to SPL 93dB2 of clear, nuanced sound, no matter how loud you like it. Most traditional speaker units shake and lose quality at high volumes. That’s not a problem for HUAWEI Sound X, thanks to Devialet’s Push-Push Acoustic Design. Each of the symmetrical dual subwoofers cancels out the vibrations of the other, suppressing distortion at any volume.

Immerse yourself in

360° of high-fidelity sound

HUAWEI Sound X builds a rich environment of sound for you to experience.

The speaker is fitted with six powerful tweeters which utilize our HUAWEI Sound algorithm to produce stunning surround sound, creating a tremendous sense of space.

Each tweeter has been individually designed for optimum sound, and together they push the speaker’s frequency as high as 40Khz.2

Huawei Share

When you’re listening to a song on your phone and want to really feel it, give HUAWEI Sound X a tap. It instantly takes over, breathing new life into your music with its dual subwoofers and automatic sound field awareness. Get ready to experience your favorite songs in a whole new way.

Certified Hi-Res audio

HUAWEI Sound X has been certified as Hi-Res, so you can be sure it delivers genuine lossless audio. The speaker captures every nuance of the original recording, so you’ll feel like you’re right there with your favorite artists.
Refined and stylish

With its sleek build, touch-sensitive buttons and glazed surface, HUAWEI Sound X is pleasing to the touch, the eye, and the ears.

Its unique design gives you a window onto the subwoofers, so you can see the bass surging as you hear and feel it.

The buttons are ringed with colorful lights which flow and change in time to the beat, perfect for adding a little mood to your tunes.

GCash supports BPO worker’s safety

As the Philippines slowly reopens the economy amid the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country, entrepreneurs and employers alike are prioritizing the health and safety of its customers and employees.
 
To maintain social distance and minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19, salaries, incentives, and allowances are best dispersed through cashless channels. GCash for Business, the enterprise arm of the country’s leading mobile wallet, offers a wide range of business solutions which allow both merchants and users to enjoy a safe and secure cashless experience. It allows businesses to distribute payroll and allowances to employees through their GCash e-wallets, which can be linked to a GCash MasterCard.
 
“Even before the pandemic, GCash played a big role in ensuring the safety of employees of Teletech, a global customer experience services and technology innovator who has won awards for being a top employer in the Philippines” said Luigi Reyes, VP for Enterprise of GCash.
 
The GCash rewards helped Teletech achieve its goal of gamifying their team’s career path and engagement in a high-touch environment with the launch of the Gamified Talent Engine (GTE). The GCash app gave the employees the liberty to choose the rewards they wanted in a convenient manner in exchange for participation in the program. In some cases, those rewards could be used for daily necessities which helped employees save cash. Adam Jove, one of Teletech’s customer representatives who has been working for the company for seven years, was able to trade his GCash points to buy maintenance medicines to treat his medical condition. GTE Director Jan Rodriguez, added that they observed high utilization of rewards through GCash for supermarket and drugstore redemptions, as they helped usher employees to maximize their benefits while keeping transactions easy and contactless.
 
Teletech PH Regional Lead Paul Doctolero saw employee participation in wellness programs improve with GCash. “Who wouldn’t want to interact, learn, and at the same time get incentives? Self-improvement is in demand and with this platform, you can do it whenever and wherever.” he said.

PayMaya Negosyo’s ‘Bizkarte’ program supercharges MSME growth and recovery 

As the whole country adapts to changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, many enterprising Filipinos are turning their entrepreneurship drive into full-fledged businesses, utilizing the power of social media and cashless payments technologies. 

 
To help accelerate the growth of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) all around the country, digital financial services leader PayMaya launched its PayMaya Negosyo “Bizkarte” Program which aims to provide MSMEs with the right tools, assistance, and resources to help their businesses thrive in the growing world of digital commerce. 

 
A play on the words “business” and diskarte–which describes the uniquely Filipino trait of being enterprising despite the seemingly insurmountable odds–the “Bizkarte” program for MSMEs offers PayMaya’s end-to-end digital payment solutions bundled with incentives through exclusive promotions and rewards for merchants and their customers, co-marketing push for members’ products and services, as well as online trainings on entrepreneurial and digital skills to help partners grow their businesses in the eCommerce space. 
 
“Filipinos are innately ma-diskarte and we’ve seen this enterprising spirit rise above the challenges we’ve all faced in the past months due to COVID-19. On top of this, our entrepreneurs are already tech-savvy and familiar with digital platforms,” said Raymund Villanueva, Head of PayMaya QR Ecosystems. “Now that they’ve established their homegrown businesses, PayMaya Negosyo’s ‘Bizkarte’ program will help them accelerate their business in this new economy.” 

 

To sign up for the Bizkarte program, entrepreneurs and MSMEs only need to download and register for an account through the PayMaya Negosyo app (http://pymy.co/PayMayaNegosyo) and sign up for the program through the Bizkarte website at http://pymy.co/bizkarte. 
 
Thriving online businesses in the ‘new normal’ 
 
Upon signing up, Bizkarte program members will instantly have access to the Bizkarte Negosyante Kit, which will contain social media templates and how-tos that they can use to help promote cashless payments for orders through their Facebook or Instagram pages, via email, or through chat apps. 
 
They will also get the chance to promote their products and services to millions of PayMaya users across the country on PayMaya-owned channels including the PayMaya app, website, and social media accounts. Their customers who pay using PayMaya, meanwhile, can enjoy exclusive perks of up to 100% Balik Bayad when they #ScanToPay via PayMaya QR. 
 
And to help give additional boost in growing their business, Bizkarte members can also get access to free webinars featuring key industry leaders who can share useful knowledge and insights about the ins and outs of running and growing their business.   

 
“We hope that through this program, we can help turn casual online sellers into full-fledged negosyantes who can rely on their home-based businesses for income even after the crisis over,” Villanueva said. 
 
Through the PayMaya Negosyo app, MSMEs can easily expand their business to go digital by accepting cashless payments online and offline through PayMaya QR, via bank transfers through InstaPay, or through the Send Money function of the PayMaya app. This allows business owners to continue serving their customers online, helping reduce the further spread of COVID-19, and in-stores, once they are ready to get back to a physical set-up.
 
Apart from these, PayMaya Negosyo offers entrepreneurs more ways to earn money by selling mobile prepaid load and other digital goods available in the app. Soon, they will also be able to accept bill payments and remittances (with proper documentary requirements) through PayMaya Negosyo. 
 
PayMaya is the only end-to-end digital payments ecosystem enabler in the Philippines with platforms and services that cut across consumers, merchants, and government. Aside from providing payments acceptance for the largest e-Commerce, food, retail and gas merchants in the Philippines, PayMaya enables national and social services agencies as well as local government units with digital payments and disbursement services.

Flush that cleans

With people now more conscious about the standard of hygiene they are setting for their homes, global leader in the design and innovation of kitchen and bath products Kohler Co. launches in the Philippines the Revolution 360° technology platform, a new technology that aims to elevate toilet cleanliness in every household.
 
The KOHLER Revolution 360° technology platform features a powerful flush that sends 360 degrees of water through the entire inner bowl for thorough cleaning after use.
 
A more water-efficient flush
Featured in the ModernLifeTM series of one-piece toilets, the KOHLER Revolution 360° boasts a larger flush valve with a diameter of up to 3.25 inches compared to the 2.8- to 3-inch valves of other toilets. It has an additional water jet to generate high-speed water flow, ensuring extraordinary flushing and bulk removal performance to effectively prevent clogging.
 
This flush technology saves up to 40 percent of water with only 3 liters per half flush and 4.5 liters per full flush versus the average of 6 liters of water per flush regulated by the US Federal Law to improve water efficiency. This innovation also conforms to the rigorous requirements of the LEED Green Building Certification, a must-have standard for high-end buildings.
 
Optimal 360° hygiene and comfort
With the introduction of the KOHLER Revolution 360° technology platform, the ModernLifeTM series of one-piece toilets exemplifies Kohler’s design philosophy of simplicity, cleanliness and seamless curves while meeting the highest standard of bathroom comfort and convenience.
 
Embracing the body structure is a user-friendly and comfortable ultra-slim seat, which comes with a Quick-ReleaseTM 90° hinge to simplify seat removal for easy cleanup and replacement.

The innovative rimless bowl design of the ModernLifeTM series of one-piece toilets features an invisible rim channel without a ledge, leaving no room for dirt to build up. The design forms an invisible water channel through which water flows in a circle, anti-clockwise, providing 360° coverage to ensure optimal cleaning of the entire bowl.
 
The stacked seat design allows for effortless lifting of the seat cover to prevent users from accidentally touching the bowl front. Kohler also offers a Slim Functional Seat option — durable soft-close toilet seats that do not interfere with Kohler’s clean-lined look – sensor night LED light and deodorization to provide an even more comfortable bathroom experience.
 
With KOHLER’s technology-in-style flushing innovation and contemporary aesthetics, the Revolution 360° technology platform aims to become every home’s ideal toilet technology for optimum toilet and bath experience.

Teachers, students benefit from DepEd Ozamiz online learning series with Smart

Teacher Lorena Rivera has been in the profession for over two decades now. As the school head of San Antonio National High School in Ozamiz City, she believes that this pandemic has a tremendous impact in the lives of the educators and students alike.

“It gives me uncertainty and anxiety, and I think all of us teachers have the same experience. Most of all, the students are the ones affected by this pandemic. They are excited to go back to school, to see their friends and teachers again, however, given the situation, some of them are worried and concerned about their education, and how this new normal can be a lot different than before,” Rivera says.

That is why she is happy that the Department of Education (DepEd) Division of Ozamiz City, in partnership with Smart Communications, Inc., has launched LAMDAG, an online learning series designed to address mental health concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lamdag — which means “light” in Visayan — stands for Learning Advocacy for Mental Development, Awareness & Guidance.

“The LAMDAG Program is so timely for all of us, not only for the educators, but also for the entire community, which includes the parents and the learners,” Rivera said.

She also mentioned how important internet connectivity has become in her life right now. “We are blessed to have companies like Smart [that provides] us means to connect and operate normally and during our work from home arrangement,” she added.

Each session focuses on a different topic such as stress management, cyber safety, responsible parenting, child protection during GCQ, among others. Learners, parents, and teachers are invited to join the sessions via Facebook Live. Smart sponsors the prizes for selected winners who participate in the question and answer segment of each session.

“We observed anxiety and behavioral changes among our students and teachers due to prolonged quarantine. Through this learning series, we hope to open a platform where members of our community could reconnect to the world. This can help them get ready for the opening of classes,” said Ell June Abucay, Planning Officer at DepEd.

LAMDAG sessions will run twice a week until August 19, 2020 via Lamdag-DepEd Ozamiz Facebook page. For more information, visit http://www.smart.com.ph.

Korean superstar Hyun Bin top telco Smart’s biggest consumer marketing campaign 

Telco Smart Communications unleashed telco’s biggest international celebrity South Korean Superstar Hyun Bin. It is a first Smart to sign up a Korean superstar to roll out one of its biggest marketing campaign, which kicked with a fan teasing campaignnlast weekend, in the Philippines.

Korean superstar Hyun Bin endorsing SmartLoop l

Hyun Bin first won the hearts of Filipinos in 2005, when a local TV network aired a Tagalog-dubbed version of his romantic hit comedy-drama, ‘My Name Is Kim Sam Soon.’
“The ‘Hyun Bin Phenomenon’ is pretty much due to digital technology – Filipinos have developed the craze because they are able to stream his shows, hear the buzz about him online, share their excitement with their friends, and even get to interact with him through social media. This makes him a perfect ambassador for Smart as we empower Filipinos with technological solutions made easy so they can enrich their daily life and pursue their passions,” says Jane Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.
“Filipinos are some of the warmest fans in the world, and I am thankful to Smart for giving me a way to reach out to everyone in the Philippines. Indeed, Smart has brought us closer than ever,” says Hyun Bin, who first won the hearts of Filipinos in 2005, when a local TV network aired a Tagalog-dubbed version of his romantic comedy-drama, ‘My Name Is Kim Sam Soon.’
In Smart’s latest TV commercial, Hyun Bin rides a sports car and zooms past the city streets – a fitting reference to the blazing speeds by which Filipinos can enjoy their daily dose of entertainment powered by Smart LTE and Giga Promos. The ad strongly concludes with Hyun Bin delivering Smart’s new tagline in Filipino, “Simple. Smart Ako.”

Hyun Bin tells Filipinos “Mahal ko Kayo” in new Smart TVC

“Simple. Smart Ako.’ sums up our company’s approach all this time to make amazing technology available, and more importantly, simple for every Filipino,” says Alfredo S. Panlilio, Smart President and CEO and PLDT Chief Revenue Officer.
Smart draws from its history of innovating the simple things that are life-changing – from making mobile phones accessible to ordinary Filipinos, pioneering groundbreaking products such as Smart Load and Pasaload, to democratizing mobile Internet along with its massive 3G and 4G network expansion.
Smart’s new campaign follows a string of awards from third-party mobile analytics firms that recognize Smart as the country’s fastest mobile data network.

Ookla, the global leader in internet testing and analysis, cited Smart as The Philippines’ Speedtest Awards Winner for mobile network speed during Q1-Q4 2019. To win this award, Smart achieved a Speed Score™ of 17.40, with average speeds of 19.62 Mbps for download and 9.45 Mbps for upload.
On the other hand, Opensignal, an independent mobile analytics firm, reported in its April 2020 Mobile Network Experience Report* for the Philippines that Smart remained ahead of competition in terms of Video Experience, Upload and Download Speed Experience, Voice App Experience, Games Experience, and 4G Availability.
These citations are a result of the continuous network expansion and upgrade of Smart on its mobile data network, which now supports a wide range of Giga Promos catering to the different passions and needs of customers.
Smart offers Giga Video for subscribers who want to binge-watch the latest K-dramas, online shows and series, and Giga Stories for those who love sharing their experiences with friends and loved ones on social media.
