Now what can they say about the gadget they're endorsing?

Solenn told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press, she's gonna help promote "how beautiful the quality of the picture is” with its 5 megapixel front camera and 16 megapixel rear camera, which are perfect for their favorite pastime—taking selfies.

Georgina added, “Actually, lahat ng people, when they take selfies with us on this phone, they’re like, ‘Can we buy from you, please?’ It’s amazing! Super clear siya!”

Solenn threw in, “At nakakaganda, yun ang pinaka-importante 'di ba!”

The tech giant’s latest flagship smartphone also inspired six beautiful glass art pieces from world-renowned Filipino sculptor Ramon Orlina which were also displayed at the fashion event.

Orlina took inspiration from the smartphone’s premium Corning Gorilla Glass cover and colors—pearl white, gold platinum, green emerald, black sapphire, blue topaz, and white pearl.

Marilou Co of Mariou Jewelry created the world’s most expensive case which is made of 18k yellow and white gold and bejeweled with 60 brilliant diamonds.

The designers who showcased their creations included Rajo Laurel, Randy Ortiz, Albert Andrada, Joey Samson, Jerome Ang, Frederick Peralta, JC Buendia, Avel Bacudio, and Pablo Cabahug.

PEP had the chance to chat with Asia’s Next Top Model Season 2 runner-up Katarina Rodriguez, who finds the camera "really, really amazing" especially for Instagram and Twitter users.

She remarked, “You’ll have good quality photos from my camera and it’s easy to post straight from your phone.”

The Thing Called Tadhana director Antoinette Jadaone was also present.

She liked the smartphone’s screen size.

She explained, “As a filmmaker, very important sa akin yung laki ng screen kasi pag nanonood ako ng pegs, nagpapadala sa akin ng videos and edited footage."

Globe also named its newest brand ambassadors: the first Filipino astronaut Chino Roque, “suave traveller” LA Aguinaldo, and “hip imagineer” Robbie Becroft.

Also present were Chef Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi; acting general manager of GrabTaxi Natasha Bautista; executive director of Jaguar Land Rover Philippines Marc Soong; model-host Kelly Misa-Fernandez.
