Samsung unleashed sleek Galaxy Note9

Last August 14, Samsung Philippines unleashed the new super powerful Samsung Galaxy Note9 They also introduced Heart Evangelista-Escudero, Nico Bolzico, and Erwan Heussaff as its newest brand ambassadors.

 

With a decorated career spanning over two decades, Heart continues to redefine herself to make a difference with her talents and passions. Through artistic ventures and humanitarian endeavors, the actress molds the best version of herself to empower others.

“I am grateful for all my life experiences, whether they may be pleasant or challenging,” shares the artist. “I keep my head held high no matter what and I always look forward to better days ahead.”

 

Heart is eager to unlock the power of creativity to inspire meaningful change. “Throughout my travels and ventures, I have witnessed the power of art, ideas, and passion to move people and make them do wonderful things. Through my Galaxy Note9, I wish to showcase that ability and share my enthusiasm for life with others.”

With the Connected Bluetooth S Pen, it becomes easier for the actress not only to create works of art when she is on-the-go, but also control her phone and capture inspiration. Aside from doing sketches and jotting down ideas, she can use the S Pen as a clicker to take better photos, browse through her phone’s gallery and design pegs, and even activate various applications. Lasting for around 200 clicks or 30 minutes of continued use, the S Pen only needs 40 seconds inside the Galaxy Note9 to charge back to full power, allowing Heart to use it anytime, anywhere with ease.

Exuding limitless energy and enthusiasm, Nico embodies the work-hard-play-hard lifestyle. Away from the cameras, the Argentinian diligently helps farmers in the country practice sustainable agriculture. Through his company, Nico aims to position the Philippines as a leading agro-export nation.

“My goals and dreams keep me eager to achieve more and become better in life,” shares the 34-year old social media star and businessman. “By keeping these things in mind, I get to power through my busy schedule, no matter how hectic it gets.”

Nico’s lifestyle benefits from the ultimate performance that the Galaxy Note9 delivers. Boasting a long-lasting 4,000 mAh battery, the smartphone helps him accomplish more within the day.

He can also send emails, call his family or friends, and stream content with ease as the Galaxy Note9 operates on a 10 nanometer Application Processor. This tiny yet powerful chipset allows Nico to experience faster loading and transition times within multiple applications. He can also carry many important files, with the Galaxy Note9 pioneering a 128GB base capacity. Also available in a limited 512GB variant, the Galaxy Note9 supports expandable memory of up to 512GB, allowing up to 1TB of storage. The smartphone also utilizes Samsung Knox, the company’s mobile security platform.

“The Galaxy Note9 is the best smartphone for an energetic and driven guy like me. I’m so glad to be back with Samsung as I keep on working to become better and help others do the same thing.”

Erwan draws from years of working from the ground up to create memorable culinary experiences. As a chef, content creator, and restaurateur, the Filipino-French is always on the lookout for ways to improve his craft.

“When you’re a food and travel enthusiast, it’s always important to keep your mind open and your senses engaged. That’s the only way to learn as much as possible and to help others see the beauty of other cultures and lifestyles,” shares the 31-year-old.

Erwan uses the Galaxy Note9 to reimagine the way he experiences, shares, and learns about the world. Able to take gorgeous low-light shots and Super Slow-mo videos, the Galaxy Note9’s Intelligent Dual Camera now comes with Auto Scene Recognition and Auto-flaw Detection, allowing Erwan to optimize his photos based on the subjects being taken. It can also report flaws, ensuring that all pictures look professional and breathtaking.

“There’s always something new and exciting to discover everyday, and the Galaxy Note9 helps me share what I see, as how I see it, to everyone. I’m excited to travel and shoot more awesome content for everyone with my new super powerful device.”
