Lenovo announces the launch of Work for Humankind, a bold initiative that calls on volunteers from around the world – including from India – to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: to make a long-lasting difference while simultaneously working at their day job from one of the most remote places in the world, thanks to some of the most advanced, smarter technology. Lenovo is inviting volunteers to apply for the opportunity to participate in the daily life of this island community.
Work for Humankind’s location – Robinson Crusoe Island, a destination more than 400 miles west of mainland Chile – is one of the most ecologically rich places on the planet. Today, it faces many challenges. These include access to education and healthcare, the impact of habitat degradation, and invasive species. The local community, the international non-profit Island Conservation, and the Chilean Government have initiated a number of community-driven projects over the last decade to address these problems. However, these efforts are often hindered by telecommunications and technology challenges1. Despite this, the island community is committed to protecting its natural and cultural legacy and intends to achieve sustainability through greater independence to meet food and energy needs, and conservation of its natural and cultural heritage.
Work for Humankind will send selected volunteers with a range of skills, backgrounds, and specialities to work at their day job, from Robinson Crusoe Island, while also volunteering to help prevent the extinction of endangered species and support the local community as it works toward achieving sustainability. This will be done through several life-changing restoration projects in partnership with Island Conservation and the local community on Robinson Crusoe Island, including developing much-needed connectivity solutions for the Island’s infrastructure. Volunteers will come from India and from nine other locations around the world.
Lenovo is creating a cutting-edge technology hub with a range of technology devices, services and solutions from the company’s Intelligent Devices Group, including high-speed internet connectivity, which will help the Island advance its goals – equipping volunteers to do their day jobs and support conservation projects on this haven of wildlife and cultural diversity. Lenovo is committed to leaving a lasting legacy on the Island to support the community’s goals and for the benefits to be felt long after the volunteer project is complete, which includes developing infrastructure to increase internet bandwidth to at least 10Mbps. To this end, a legacy fund will be established to maintain the community hub and support community projects.
Work hybrid like never before
Supporting this initiative is fresh research from Lenovo that reveals the growing significance of remote and hybrid work, especially for Indian Gen Z and Millennials. In addition, the study spotlights an increasing desire for flexibility due to its benefits for individuals and society overall – including saving money, having more time for friends and family, and having a better work-life balance.
The study, which surveyed more than 1,500 people in the Indian market as part of a 15,000-person global survey, finds just how willing knowledge workers are – especially the younger workforce – to change their everyday environments and do their day jobs from a remote destination while contributing to the community. A remarkable 85% of Indian Gen Z and Millennial respondents say they would rather work more hours from a great remote location of their choice than go into the office every day. A whopping 74% of this group would also accept a pay cut to work from a great remote location rather than getting a normal salary in the office every day.
The data reveals that more than six out of seven Indian Gen Z and Millennials feel more productive, creative, and inspired when working remotely. It also shines a light on the younger workforce’s mindset in striving to make a positive difference no matter where they’re working from, as 91% of Indian Gen Z surveyed see the importance of drawing attention to and supporting the local community they’re working from, in areas like environmental and social issues.
Key findings of the study include:
- Nine in ten Indian people aged 18-40 think working from anywhere is beneficial to society, communities, employers, and employees
- 98% deem giving back and making a positive impact on the local community as ‘very important’
- Nearly 88% of Indian respondents say “Working from Anywhere” would improve their personal relationships
- 84% of Indian respondents said they are open to working from anywhere in the world, while almost six in seven (85%) are happy to work more hours if it means being able to do so from a remote location
- 94% of Indian Gen Z and Millennials say it’s highly important to stimulate the local economy when “Working from Anywhere”
- More than 80% of respondents believe their current technology has allowed them to work more flexibly, increase productivity and reach their full potential
- 93% of respondents are excited about new, emerging technology that will make it easier to “Work from Anywhere” effectively

Infinix’s Upcoming 5G Smartphone to be Equipped with “MemFusion” Feature
The most awaited and talked about 5G Smartphone from Infinix is said to be equipped with the latest “MemFusion” feature which will enable the users to extend the RAM of their smartphone by using some part of ROM for better and smooth performance.
The importance of RAM
RAM (random access memory) is a major attribute of the customer-purchasing journey and the everyday user aspires for a mobile phone with plenty of RAM. A mobile phone has two memories, RAM and ROM, which correspond to a computer’s memory and hard disk, respectively. The memory is responsible for running programs and exchanging data, while the hard disk means the storage space where you can store photos, videos and other files. All programs in the phone run on RAM; therefore, read and write speed and capacity of RAM are crucial for the performance of the phone.
Countless smartphone users have encountered a scenario where the game is forced back and has to be reloaded only because users switch to social apps to replay messages while playing the game. This is the so-called “kill APP” caused by insufficient memory. With a larger running memory, users can run more apps simultaneously and quickly switch between apps without lag. This is a big deal for heavy users, especially gamers, as more RAM makes the game run smoother, making the experience more fun. The RAM, however, increases the price significantly, leading to a dilemma for customers wanting a phone with more ram but not having the budget to purchase it.
Infinix extends RAM out of the devices’ ROM for a smooth experience
The upcoming ZERO Series devices will be equipped the “MemFusion” feature, which would be accessed by Setting -> Special Function -> MemFusion. This feature will enable the consumers to set the storage space out of ROM
They can choose from the available option; 2GB/3GB/5GB RAM. Once the RAM size is selected, the device will restart and show the allocated Virtual RAM as chosen. The feature is a game-changer when you’re using more apps at a specific time and need a temporary boost in performance without compromising your daily battery life too much. Extended RAM technology means that a part of the ROM will be used to work as RAM when the RAM is not sufficient to ensure smooth performance.
With the latest MemFusion technology, the number of apps that the Infinix Zero Series will run will increase from 9 to 20 simultaneously. With the same 20 apps running, the average startup speed of applications can be increased by 60% approx. The devices can load games faster and ensure that users get into games quickly even if they switch among multiple apps.
Physical memory in Android phones has climbed from 1GB to 8GB in the past decade, and there are several flagship phones with 10GB or more. In contrast, Infinix adopts its extended RAM technology and MemFusion feature based on increased physical memory, bringing users a more stable and smooth multi-application running experience through technology upgrades for the same attainable price.
Next-generation technology isn’t beyond reach. Infinix is working hard to ensure several future devices have innovative technology that solves the daily issues consumers face at a convenient and attainable price point.
