A heat wave has come to the City of Dreams Manila last Thursday (March 22) as Vivo launched its latest flagship smartphone – the Vivo V9!

In a summer-themed media event, Vivo unveils its newest innovation to more than 200 members of the press and guests.  Leading the grand launch event were Brand Director Annie Lim together with other Vivo execs Jomari Morales, Christian Jocson and Xian Gana who highlighted the new features found in the V9 line.

  • 90% scree-to-body ratio
  • 24 megapixel selfie camera
  • 16 megapixel + 5 megapixel dual rear camera
  • AI powered perfect view and perfect shot photography features
  • uninterrupted gaming features

Since it entered the Philippine market in 2016, Vivo has been steadily rising to become the country’s top three brand with over 5,200 stores and 1.5 million users nationwide. With the V9, Vivo hopes to further strengthen their position in the local market.

Vivo V9 is scheduled for pre-ordering on March 26 to April 2 with a price tag of 17,990 Pesos.

During the event, Vivo also announced their newest celebrity brand ambassadors – Edward Barber and Ivan Dorchner.

Barber is the onscreen partner of young actress Maymay Entrata who also joined the event. Entrata was the first who joined Vivo in September 2017 during the launch of the V7+. His endorsement deal with Vivo is something MayWard fans have been patiently waiting for since the pair already worked together for the smartphone brand during their first Making Mega shoot in Germany last year.

Dorschner, meanwhile, charmed the press with his good looks and charisma. He was one of Kuya’s guests in Pinoy Big Brother in 2010. Since then, he became one of GMA Network’s top leading men after starring alongside young actress and fellow Vivo endorser Barbie Forteza in the primetime series “Meant To Be.”

Barber, Entrata, and Dorschner also picked three lucky winners of the Vivo V9 during the raffle. They also joined the Vivo executives for a toast for the V9. Also with them onstage were other Vivo endorsers young pop soul singer Sassa Dagdag, acoustic singer-songwriter TJ Monterde, and balladeer Jason James Dy who closed the night with their performances.
