Mukesh Ambani leave behind to Louis Vuitton’s Bernard Arnault, becomes fourth richest man of World.

Published

Mukesh Ambani has surged past Europe’s wealthiest man, making him the world’s fourth-richest person. Reliance Industries Ltd.’s chairman is now worth $80.6 billion, after amassing $22 billion this year, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. That gives him a bigger wealth pile than France’s Bernard Arnault, whose LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE has suffered from customers curbing high-end fashion purchases faster than the company can cut costs.

India’s richest person has already surpassed some of the biggest tycoons in recent weeks — a list that includes Silicon Valley titans such as Elon Musk and Alphabet Inc. co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, as well as the so-called Oracle of Omaha himself, Warren Buffett. While the conglomerate with a huge energy empire was slammed by a slump in demand for oil amid Covid-19, its shares have more than doubled from a low in March as its digital unit got billions in investments from companies including Facebook Inc. and Google.

Ambani has slowly been shifting his focus to e-commerce, with tech giants seeking to take a piece of India’s fast-growing digital business. Google said last month it will spend $10 billion in the coming years to help accelerate the adoption of digital technologies in the world’s second-most populous nation.

Meanwhile, with LVMH shares down this year, Arnault has become the biggest loser among the world’s 500 richest people. His net worth has plunged $25.1 billion to $80.2 billion.

Newly launched Oppo F19 boasts truckload of features: See price and specifications

Published

OPPO has been on an F19 roll of late. A few weeks ago, the F19 Pro and F19 Pro+ totally changed our expectations of what a smartphone priced below Rs 30,000 should be like and its sales numbers were testimony to that. The Pro series registered sales of over 230 crores in the first three days itself. There was over 70% growth in the first-day sale volume when compared to its predecessor, F17 Pro. And now comes the F19, which totally changes our perception of what a phone below Rs 20,000 should deliver.

This F19 brings a truckload of features under the hood. In fact, the moment you see the F19, you will be surprised at how incredibly sleek and lightweight it is. This is not the sort of design you get to see even at higher price points. Right from the beautifully crafted back and slim sides to the beautiful AMOLED display that delivers a 90.8 per cent screen to body ratio, a carefully placed punch hole that is a mere 3.688 mm large to ensure that your viewing experience is not disrupted, the F19 radiates class and attention to detail. It is easy to hold and has a very comfortable in-hand feel.

What’s amazing is that even with this slim and sleek design, OPPO has packed a massive 5000 mAh battery into the F19 and it is no mere run-of-the-mill 5000 mAh battery either. It will not only keep the phone running for more than a day of normal to heavy usage but will also recharge in no time at all thanks to a 33W charger that comes with the support of Flash Charge. In fact, just five minutes of charging will give the OPPO F19 enough to allow you to keep talking for five and a half hours.

Then there is the magnificent 6.43 inch AMOLED display with full HD+ resolution and a staggering 409 ppi pixel density, which makes viewing content a delight, whether you are tuning in to your favourite show on Netflix, browsing the web, or checking your social networks. A powerful multi-core processor combined with an impressive 6GB RAM and 128 GB storage makes multi-tasking and gaming a smooth, lag-free experience. The beautiful display also contains a very swift and secure in-display fingerprint scanner with OPPO’s Fingerprint 3.0 technology, ensuring only you can access your phone and the data on it.

This is an OPPO device. So, you can be assured of some serious photography expertise here. The F19 comes with a triple camera arrangement with a 48-megapixel main sensor, to deliver stunning images and compelling videos. The phone also comes packed with a number of shooting and editing modes to ensure that you can do more with the images and videos that you shoot – and yes, the phone is powerful enough to let you edit video on it. Of course, selfies are exceptional and fun, in best OPPO tradition – this is the brand that made selfies a “thing”, remember? Incidentally, when you start the selfie camera, a ring around the punch hole lights up – now, if that is not cool, we need a new definition of the term.
