Buying a home is a stressful process. Not only is it becoming increasingly difficult to find reasonably priced properties that are also attractive to live in, but the mortgage process, which most buyers have to go through, is time-consuming and full of potential traps. While the first problem won’t most likely be solved any time soon, there’s one Dubai-based startup that’s actively trying to address the second issue, and its name is Huspy.
Essentially, Huspy is an online mortgage platform that facilitates hassle-free financing for people who would like to live in Dubai. It was founded in August 2020 by chief executive officer Jad Antoun and chief technology officer Khalid Al Ashmawy, who understand the local market through first-hand experience.
“We started Huspy with the aim to disrupt one of the largest industries and bring the entire home loan process online. Customers are massively underserved where lack of visibility, poor customer experience, and overpayment are common problems. We want to solve for that,” said Antoun. “The team has built tools and systems to leverage technology in a highly operational business to give us the ability to provide customers with the best rates, faster mortgage close times and a great digital experience,” added Ashmawy.
Instead of having to wait up to 10 weeks to secure a mortgage, Huspy lets its users search over 500 home loan options in seconds to find the one that fits them the best. That way, it’s possible to get a personalized home loan three times faster and secure the best price possible. Best of all, Huspy doesn’t charge its users broker fees at all. Instead, it makes money by charging the banks a commission for every loan.
Huspy is available on iOS as well as Android, and you can download it yourself right now to see what it has to offer. The startup is backed by leading tech investors, including VentureFriends, B&Y Ventures, and Plug and Play, so you know your mortgage will be in good hands.
Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event Will Take Place On August 11
In addition to 2 new foldable smartphones, you can also look forward to the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Buds 2.
After several leaks, Samsung has officially confirmed the date and time when its upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event will take place: August 11, 2021 at 10 AM EST.
Besides the confirmation, Samsung has rewarded its fans for their patience by releasing an official trailer that hints at the products that will soon be revealed in their full glory.
“Change is the only constant in the world of innovation. By driving new ideas forward and transforming existing experiences, it redefines the boundaries of what’s possible,” the official press release says. “As the excitement for the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked on August 11 continues to build, Samsung Electronics has released a trailer teasing the surprises that lie in wait for Galaxy fans.”
The products teased by the trailer are the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 (check out the complete leaked Galaxy device lineup). Both are foldable smartphones, but each targets different customers.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 folds along the vertical axis, and it’s expected to boast a huge 7.7-inch interior display and a smaller exterior display, giving users plenty of screen real estate for basic apps and multimedia alike. It could be Samsung’s first smartphone with an under-display camera, and it will certainly be powered by Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line processor.
As the name suggests, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 folds along the horizontal axis, allowing it to comfortably hide even inside the tiny pockets so many women’s pants come with. Just like its larger relative, it will come with flagship specifications, so playing the latest games or taking beautiful pictures at night shouldn’t be a problem.
In addition to the two foldable smartphones, you can also look forward to the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Buds 2.
How To Watch The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event
The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event will be accessible only to online viewers, and you’ll be able to tune it either directly from Samsung.com or on YouTube.
