Maris Racal Could Not Get Enough of the Vivo V7+’s Top-of-the-Line Features

Monday, October 30, 2017

Press Release - Newest Vivo influencer Maris Racal has sure gone a long way from her first TV stint as one of the teen housemates of Pinoy Big Brother All In where she eventually placed second to the season’s Big Winner Daniel Matsunaga. Known for her sweet singing voice earning her the title “Singing Sunshine ng Davao”, Maris or Mariestella in real life grew up in a musically-inclined family and is also part of a sing-and-dance all-girl group in home network ABS-CBN.

Maris has already a few accomplishments under her belt as a budding celebrity, but she still considers her recent Vivo endorsement a dream come true. “I have always wanted to [endorse a phone brand],” Maris says in a brief interview held in between photo shoots for the top smartphone brand. “That is why when my handler told me [that I have been chosen to endorse Vivo], I was so happy.”


Maris was introduced as one of the Vivo influencers at the launch of the young and hip global smartphone brand’s latest pride the V7+. She is part of the fresh roster of Vivo endorsers known collectively as the Vivo Family. On top of being an independent talent, Maris also makes up half of the “Marni go” love team with Inigo Pascual, another Vivo influencer and member of the pioneer batch of the Vivo Family. The twosome was formed by chance when the duo made headlines when they performed onstage for Inigo’s digital concert.

Apart from being part of “Marnigo”, Maris has a lot of good things on her plate and all the highlights of her days can now be preserved in memories through her own Vivo V7+. “I look super fresh [in my selfies] even without make-up,” she happily remarks, swearing by the selfie-taking prowess of the Vivo V7+. The V7+ boasts of one of the world’s first 24MP 24MP clearer selfie, front facing camera with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo. To further enhance photos, the V7+ packs in a built in Bokeh effect which creates an aesthetic quality of out of focus blur in photos.

Being a musician herself, Maris is also thrilled over the V7+’s fully-upgraded AK4376A Hi-Fidelity audio chip. This V7+ feature supports the latest sound technology and levels up mobile audio technology, enabling any music lover to enjoy rich and full rhythms. This audio chip also plays music which answers to the mood or scenario at hand.

Maris will be part of a series of Vivo V7+ mall shows alongside love team Inigo Pascual and other Vivo Family members. The four-month mall tour which commenced last September will heavily endorse the Vivo V7+ with fun-packed activities and performances from the Vivo Family; the tour will be doing the rounds until the end 2017.

Chienna Filomeno is Happy to Endorse Vivo

Sunday, October 29, 2017

Press Release - Twenty-one-year-old Chienna Filomeno is the real deal when it comes to social media popularity. With Instagram followers that has racked up to more than a million, Chienna’s semi-charmed life is an open book. Juggling showbusiness, travels, and learning how to be a DJ, Chienna just added one more gig into her already long line of pursuits: A Vivo influencer. Chienna is part of the young and hip celebrities signed by the globally popular phone brand last September to be part of the Vivo Family.

To say that she was overwhelmed was an understatement when asked how she felt after being chosen to carry the Vivo brand. “[I am happy] that [Vivo] trusted me,” she gushes in a brief interview conducted during a photo shoot organized by Vivo.

Chienna, along with the other Vivo brand influencers, are all thrilled over Vivo’s latest pride, the V7+. Chienna could not get any more excited. She loves how she could take a clear, all-natural selfie with an array of filters to choose from right off the bat. One of these filters is the Bokeh effect, an aesthetic quality of out of focus blur in photos which adds drama and flair to any selfie. “My selfies are so clear and natural!” Chienna says referring to the V7+ 24 MP clearer selfie, front facing camera—one of the world’s first— with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo. To further perfect a selfie, the V7+’s Special Face Beauty 7.0 feature brightens up photos and evens-out complexions so capturing a selfie-moment is not a problem in dimly-lit environment.

Chienna also appreciates how superb the sound came out while listening to music during an hour of country trip to Bangkok, owing it to the V7+ high fidelity sound feature which supports the latest sound technology and levels up mobile audio technology, enabling any music lover to enjoy rich and full rhythms.

She urges her fans to pick a Vivo smartphone for themselves “because it is super worth it,”. The young budding star will be appearing alongside her fellow Vivo brand endorsers in various mall tours to be mounted by the top smartphone brand. The four-month mall tour which commenced last September will run until the end of 2017 and will heavily endorse the Vivo V7+.
