Mobile operators sought assistance from the government, especially from the law enforcement agencies, to continue providing uninterrupted services to the people during the holidays or shutdown because of the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
Telecom has been declared as an emergency service following the government's instructions.
Mobile network operators (MNO) have been providing uninterrupted services across the country, said a press release.
According to notices circulated by the Cabinet Division and the Ministry of Public Administration on March 20, providers of emergency utility services such as electricity, water, gas, fire service, cleaning operations, telephone and internet will continue providing services and keep their offices open during the holidays and shutdown.
However, in some places, officials and or representatives of the mobile network operators faced challenges from the law enforcement agencies during their official works including network management, recharge and distribution and customer service.
The Association of Mobile Telecom Operators of Bangladesh (AMTOB) has requested law enforcement agencies to communicate with their field officials so that mobile operators can provide their countrywide uninterrupted services and keep their offices open without any disruption, added the release.
Leading institutional or eligible investors said they offered fair prices for Walton shares during IPO bidding after the detailed evaluation of the company’s financial report, consistent and sustainable profit growth, business development and future growth prospect.
During Walton’s IPO bidding, one of the leading institutional investors LankaBangla Asset Management Company Limited bid Tk 449 for each share. LankaBangla's Chief Investment Officer MA Faisal Mahmud said, “We thoroughly analysed Walton's prospectus and financial reports and saw that Walton was growing up historically among other domestic companies. As the company is producing various products indigenously, they are in good shape considering it.”
“Walton’s continuity of growth, business development and future prospects has seemed good to us," he said. “In addition, the company has a relatively low volume of free-float shares. As a result, it is expected that the company will have share demand. Considering these factors, LankaBangla made a bid of Tk449 per share, which I think was reasonable price.”
IDLC Investment and Finance, another top leading investment companies, made the bid of TK411. Managing Director of the company Md Moniruzzaman said, “In terms of bidding, we've seen how powerful Walton's business model is. In particular, it has been considered whether Walton will be able to sustain business with other companies and what their net and gross profit margin will be in the long run.”
He said Walton is a very good business model in the country. Everyone is watching it and there is lots of evidence. In the local market, the demand for the products of the company is increasing. Market participants think that the lack of a fund-based company will be met if domestic electronics giant Walton is listed in the capital market. This will bring back momentum and increase depth in the capital market.
On January 15 last year, Walton performed a road show to collect Tk100 crore from the stock market in book building system. Then in January this year, the Securities and Exchange Commission of Bangladesh approved the IPO bidding for the company.
The cut-off price of shares of Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited was then set at Tk315 each after bidding by eligible institutional investors.

Folding Smartphones are returning with grandeur. As a new soldier in this race, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip tries to steal the show with top-notch technology in minimal structure. Targeting Valentine’s Day, Samsung released this hotshot on 14th February 2020 in the U.S. and Korea. This second-generation Galaxy Flip aims to overcome the limitations of its predecessor. Let’s see what it really does offer.
The first look of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will remind you of the old saying ‘small is beautiful’. In the folding state, Z flip features a compact design (87.4 x 73.6 x 17.3 mm). This flip phone is highly portable, consuming limited room in your pouch/pocket. Not to mention, the premium look of this trendy folding Smartphone.
In a folding state, Z Flip turns into half size. This high-end flip Smartphone shows you some information, like date, time, battery life, message, etc. on its exterior screen. You don’t need to flip out the phone to take a selfie. However, it needs some extra pressure to flip out this Smartphone with one hand, which might be uncomfortable for some users.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip edges out the Motorola Razr by its Gorilla 6 glass built front glass. You can swipe its 6.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen up and down with superb comfort. Moreover, Z Flip is great for watching movies by virtue of its mind-blowing image quality – 1080 x 2636 pixels resolution with 425 PPI density.
Each flip smartphone bears an unavoidable crease where it folds. However, you can barely define its crease unless you look from an angle. The manufacturer has shown state-of-art design efficiency to make the creaseless discernible in flat mode offering a continuous display.
Samsung claims that Galaxy Z Flip has Fiber Guards inside the hinge, which will prevent dust and debris from entering through the tiny holes. Unlike usual folding phones, Z Flip is blessed with a three-step hinge structure. This hinge allows you to unfold this Smartphone through halfway or lying fully flat. This clever design makes Z Flip highly user-friendly.
The most fascinating fact about Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is that in the folded state the display divides into two segments. This technology is termed as Flex Mode Software. Taking benefit of this design, you can open the hinge half-way and place this Smartphone over a surface resembling a palm-size laptop.
What is more? The Flex Mode technology has taken video calling to a new height. You will love the hand-free video calling option bending the front screen through halfway. Unlike the linear phones, in Galaxy Z Flip you can see both yourself and the person from the other end in an equal size window.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has two rear-end cameras. One camera has a 12-megapixel sensor. The other camera is tagged with Ultra-wide features bearing a 12-megapixel sensor. Using this camera you can take a 120-degree wide field of view. Zooming in and out you can capture panoramic views.
Galaxy Z Flip has a 10-megapixel selfie camera on its front screen. Samsung always emphasizes on standard image quality. Z Flip holds this legacy. However, the overall camera features of Z Flip may not fascinate you as the competitors, like Samsung Galaxy S20 5G are offering even better cameras for lower price tags.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip shook the world with massive internal storage. Its 256 GB memory features almost double the capacity compared with Galaxy S20. Adding to this, Galaxy Z Flip is backed up with an 8 GB RAM which enables this gear to run any high-end software smoothly. Though Z Flip has no additional slot for memory expansion, its in-built memory is enough to store files, software, and games.
This cool gear is equipped with Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 plus Processor with Octa-core CPU. The Android 10 operating system makes Z Flip fast and compatible to run the latest apps and software. You can play the up-to-date video games utilizing it's powerful 700 Mhz GPU Adreno 640.
Samsung’s latest folding Smartphone Z Flip’s 3300 mAh battery fall might disappoint you. But don’t worry! Its 15W fast wireless charging will save you time. The quick finger-print sensor will save both your time and privacy. In simple words, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip combines cutting edge technology with amazing design efficiency.
The price of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip starts from $1379, 99 or 116,998 BDT ($1= 84.78 BDT). However, the price is subject to change in different markets upon company decisions.
