SAMSUNG Philippines unveils its Galaxy Note 9


Samsung Philippines introduces Heart Evangelista-Escudero, Nico Bolzico, & Erwan Heussaff as the newest brand ambassadors of the SAMSUNG Galaxy Note9 n the media launch of the Galaxy Note 9 last August 14, 2018 held at the Marriot Hotel.


As new additions to the Samsung family, all three celebrities showed how the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 help them do more in life.


While Note 9 looks similar to its predecessor, its 1440x2960 resolution is simply remarkable with a density of 516ppi.

It boasts a few impressive upgrades over the last year's model. This flagship phone has the best of current technology with the requisite CPU and GPU performance boost; a much bigger, long-lasting battery; plus 128GB of storage in the standard model. Furthermore, the Note 9 definitely competes at top tier with a Bluetooth-enabled S Pen which you can use as a remote control.

It also comes with wireless charging, multiple biometric locking mechanisms (fingerprint, face, and iris), and a new version of DeX, which allows you to use your phone as a computer with nothing but an HDMI adapter connected to an external monitor. The Note comes with Android 8.1 Oreo.

S Pen

The Galaxy Note 9 offers a new S Pen remote controls which definitely make the stylus more compelling.

Samsung's stylus has long been a hallmark of the Note series, and S Pen's updates this year, give it more functionality. Samsung has turned the pen into a full-fledged remote control by adding a Bluetooth Low Energy module and a supercapacitor.

Long-pressing the S Pen button launches the camera. You can double-click to switch between the front and rear cameras, then click to snap a photo. You can change this function to be any other app though.

Ang Babaeng Allergic sa WiFi

“Ang Babaeng Allergic sa WiFi” is Cignal Entertainment's first full-length feature film production in partnership with The IdeaFirst Company and serves as its official entry to the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2018.

Story:

Ang Babaeng Allergic sa Wi-Fi centers on a teenager named Norma (Sue Ramirez), who is diagnosed with Electromagentic Hyper-Sensitivity — a rare illness that makes her literally allergic to WiFi, data signals and other online tools which she and her friends find indispensable.

Some of the story’s twist are a little bit predictable just like the scene when Aries (Jameson Blake) meets Norma  to the time he finds out that Norma is his actually brother Leo's (Markus Paterson) girflriend.  Markus Paterson is the perfect hearbreaker with his handsome face. Jameson Blake's compelling acting as the geeky Aries who is willing to go far to protect a love that wasn’t his to begin with is noteworthy.

Their unseeming love triangle makes for a complicated mess of emotions where one is bound to wind up in tears.  It gets even more complicated as  more feelings develop.


As her ordeal slowly draws her closer to Aries, Sue has to decide what kind of relationship she wants from a  career-determined Leo, and a quiet, reliable Aries. Though Sue is still in love with Leo, she’s intrigued by Aries, too. Sue then slowly realizes she might be attracted to Aries.

This movie will warm your heart, make you laugh and make you wonder at the incredible things that love does!  The comfort and reassurance love gives urges one to go beyond the comforts of the familiar and take on risks.

I promise you’ll love this movie. You'll bawl your eyes out while watching  this sweet young love movie as the plot thickens. It is not your ordinary love triangle.
The ending will surprisingly move you to tears. Love is indeed a risk worth taking, even if it hurts!

It will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.

Crafted by the award-winning Director Jun Robles Lana,  Ang Babaeng Allergic sa Wifi, features all-original songs by the talented Keiko Necasario, currently the biggest name in the indie music scene.

It is our privilege to let their light shine so that many more may benefit from their example,” he continued.

The awardees underwent a rigorous selection process and were selected from hundreds of nominations. A Board of Assessors, composed of members from the government, academe, military, and media sectors, pre-determined the semi-finalists through document review. The accomplishments of the semi-finalists were field validated by third-party organizations, the Philippine Social Science Council (PSSC) and the National Defense College of the Philippines (NDCP). The field validation determined 19 finalists whose work has inspired and influenced their peers as well as the larger community with a lasting positive impact.

The 19 finalists were interviewed by a multi-sectoral Final Board of Judges chaired by Senator Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara and co-chaired by Supreme Court of the Philippines associate justice Noel Tijam. The other members include: Department of Justice (DOJ) secretary Menardo Guevarra; Makati City mayor Mar-Len Abigail Binay-Campos; De La Salle Philippines president Br. Armin Luistro; Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) chairman Manuel Pangilinan; Rockwell Land, Inc. president and chief executive officer Nestor Padilla; and veteran journalist Ma. Teresa Vitug.

Joining the ranks of 655 outstanding public servants recognized by MBFI since 1985, the awardees will be honored during the formal conferment ceremonies on September 7, 2018 at the Metrobank Plaza, Makati City as part of Metrobank’s 56th anniversary celebration.
