Hosted by Bianca Gonzales-Intal – who is also an ambassador of the Samsung Galaxy Note7 – greeted guests, media partners, and Samsung lovers alike at the Grand Ballroom of Shangri-La at the Fort.

SEPCO’s IT and Mobile Business Head, Rhinn Piczon, emphasized that the Note series has come a long way. Although critics first doubted the Galaxy Note for its large screen and S Pen, the Samsung Galaxy Note7 is proof that perseverance pays off as the tech giant continues to pave the way for innovation, especially in the phablet category.

“Bigger is indeed better when it comes to those who want to get the most out of a single mobile device on their hands, and that’s what we’ve taken into consideration when the Samsung Galaxy Note7 was created,” said Piczon.

“The Samsung Galaxy Note7 is truly the smartphone that thinks big. The phablet combines bestof both work and play rolled into one gadget, which continues to provide the necessary tools that every change-maker needs,” added Chad Sotelo, Marketing Director of Samsung Philippines.

He continued, “With its enhanced functions, the most intelligent smartphone to date makes not just work, but life as whole, much easier and much more convenient. It enables consumers to create a noteworthy idea out of small inspirations and big thinking – and that’s what the Note7 is all about.”

Touted to be the most intelligent smartphone, the Galaxy Note 7 boasts of four compelling features not otherwise seen in any other device: the most intelligent S-Pen, the most intelligent entertainment, the most intelligent protection, and the most intelligent security.

Effortlessly combining intelligence and style, just like themselves, it’s no wonder that Samsung ambassadors Solenn Heussaff and Georgina Wilson have remained loyal to the brand. Both Solenn and Georgina agreed that life has been much easier since they made the switch to Samsung a few years back – attributing it to the innovative features that the Galaxy line provides with its products.

“Samsung’s Galaxy line has always been about going beyond limits, which is why I love their products. There’s a reason why Samsung has been a leader in mobile technology and we can clearly see that in the Galaxy Note7, with its enhanced S Pen, its iris scanner, its dust and waterresistance and even its HDR video capabilities,” explained Solenn.

Georgina chimed in. “Samsung has always designed smartphones that allow me to do much,much more than I can, whether I’m working or relaxing during my “me” time. It lets me achieve alot more, while also being able to express myself.”


Bathed in Samsung colors, the grand ballroom was designed to make a statement, using state-of-the-art technology to take the event to the next level. These pieces of technology were then used in a grand reveal of the Galaxy Note7, highlighting its most impressive features – the enhanced S Pen, the iris scanner for best security, & the IP68 water and dust resistance.

Truly a noteworthy affair, esteemed guests from different industries have come to witness how an exemplary piece of innovation the Galaxy Note7 is. The ballroom was packed with notable guests such as Samsung’s Philippine President Kevin Lee and Samsung ambassadors Solenn Heussaff, Georgina Wilson, Bianca Gonzales, and Erwan Heussaff.

The overall grand display all lends to the fact that Samsung is an innovation pioneer. With the Galaxy Note7 as the smartphone that thinks big, there is no doubt that this will once again setthe bar even higher than any smartphone has ever done
