Is the European brand of mobile phones better than what we have right now? Well, they are now getting ready to conquer the Philippine market.
We are about to experience refinement in mobile technology as they unveiled their product last July 15, 2015 at their grand launch held at Society Lounge located at Atrium building of Makati city.
Everyone is fully aware that the Philippines is a smartphone country where the units outnumbers the population already since many have more than just one unit at hand. Like myself, I have more than two units of smartphones aside form the tablets that I'm using.
Jojit Alcazar, Managing Partner of Veracity Mobile, led the presentation of the Prestigio brand. Under the Veracity Synergy Solutions Inc. (VSSI) group, Veracity Mobile offers a great alternative to the growing mobile devices segment through its partnership with respected European brand, Prestigio marking the Philippines as its 86th country served.
The brand started out by presenting 6 models of smartphones with prices ranging from Php 5,699 (lowest priced unit) to Php 13, 899 (highest priced unit). Models of different lifestyle outfits, came out one at a time to show off the different models, until they've finally competed on stage the initial products being offered by Veracity Mobile for the Prestigio brand.
Thank you to Mr. Jojit Alcasid for giving in to our request, with the Prestigio babes, in a very special video presentation from WazzupPilipinas.com
Brand ambassadors such as Paulo Hubalde, Nap Guttierez, Boyet Sison and other personalities were also presented to the members of the media.
The Prestigio brand also carries other products aside from mobile phones. Veracity Mobile decided to make it easier for consumers by offering only a few models at first so picking a favorite model with your preferred features would be easier.
The high-end unit boast of 13 Megapixels rear camera, and 5 megapixels front camera. All units also comes with free 200 gb cloud storage - the biggest so far being offered as part of the package. Now if only our Internet connection will cooperate, that huge cloud storage is very useful already especially for our selfie addicted friends who can't seem to get enough of personal photo ops.
