Legions of his fans from all over the world have come to know him for his stellar roles in The 1st Shop of the Coffee Prince (2007), Train to Busan (2016), and The Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (2016-2017). But what a lot do not know yet is the true story behind this partnership between one of the most popular Asian actors in the world, and the global tech juggernaut from Taiwan – which all came to fruition once Gong Yoo first experienced the game-changing ASUS Zenfone AR.

“When the ASUS team showed me their Zenfone AR, I was completely stunned at how such a small device could possess so much technological innovation and produce a whole new world of imagination and creativity with its AR and VR features,” said Gong Yoo. “It was then that I realized I wanted to collaborate with ASUS to see what new possibilities we could discover together. I am looking forward to embarking on this amazing adventure with the new Zenfone 4 series.”

With ASUS Philippines as one of the main markets in the APAC region, Pinoy fans of Gong Yoo will be delighted to know that limited-edition Gong Yoo merchandise and freebies will soon be made available in key ASUS and Zenfone stores, with every purchase of a new Zenfone 4 series smartphone.

With the aforementioned powerhouse line-up of phones under the Zenfone 4 series, it was only fitting that ASUS Philippines turn the starpower a notch higher with the introduction of another influential name within the local market as the local brand ambassador of the Zenfone 4.

Widely considered as one of the best actresses of this generation, Bea Alonzo joins the Zenfone 4 family, eager to showcase her talent and passion for photography.

Dubbed as the Movie Queen of the New Generation, Alonzo will also star in her very first two-part web series, in partnership with ASUS Philippines. “Being part of the Zenfone Family is an incredible venture for me not only as an actress but also a hobbyist too, and I’m very excited to be a part of the project.” She said. “This is all new and I will try my best to give everyone something they will love.”

#4THESMILE FOR A SPECIAL GENERATION

The Zenfone 4 City certainly launched a lot of milestones to celebrate this year, chief of which was the announcement of another partnership: this time, between ASUS Philippines and the Operation Smile Foundation – an international non-governmental organization (NGO) dedicated to helping children with cleft lips and palettes.

Entitled, #4THESMILE, this online fund-raising campaign invites users to simply take a selfie using any of the new Zenfone 4 series smartphones, and upload these online with the hashtag s #4TheSmile and #Zenfone4. ASUS Philippines aims to generate a total of 1,300,000 selfies, which will translate to a sponsored medical mission with Operation Smile Foundation in a key provincial area by the end of the year. All selfies taken with the official hashtags will be displayed in the Zenfone 4 Microsite and selfie bank.

“This is a year of many great things,” George begins, “A year of going beyond what is expected to be in search of the incredible, a year of changing the landscape of mobile photography, and a year of new relationships to explore. We hope everyone will join us and support us in this year’s exciting adventures.”

‘Groufie’ era begins with the new OPPO F3 Plus

Selfies will never be the same now with the whole gang in the picture!

Mobile technology brand OPPO just launched its flagship dual selfie camera phone, the F3 Plus—the first-ever smartphone with a wide-angle dual front camera to easily accommodate ‘groufies’ in a single shot. The new phone will be out in Philippine stores as well as in India, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia beginning April 1.

“Since OPPO started the Selfie Revolution in the Philippines with the F1 Series, we’ve gone through incredible growth especially when we became the country’s second bestselling smartphone in 2016,” OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng said. “We are very excited to see the F3 Plus start a new trend in groufies and reinforce our position as the Selfie Expert.”

“The F3 Plus was developed for both selfie lovers and photography buffs who want a smartphone that lets them take stunning shots wherever they are, no matter the time of day. Our newest camera phone packs state-of-the-art hardware and software in a sleek body to deliver outstanding performance and style, perfect for the urban lifestyle,” Cheng added.

Effortless from selfie to groufie

Set to be the ultimate Selfie Expert, the F3 Plus builds upon the technology of the earlier OPPO F1s to deliver outstanding selfie photography. The new smartphone sports a similar 16-megapixel (MP) selfie camera with a 1/3-inch sensor for clear image results even in low light, as well as an f/2.0 aperture for depth-of-field aesthetic.

The difference lies in the additional secondary camera. This 8MP groufie-camera has a wide 120-degree angle—105 percent larger than the regular 80-degree lens field of view— which allows more people to fit inside the frame. The wide-angle shot is also complemented by a 6P lens to minimize distortion.

Ease of use has been carefully designed into the front camera’s functionality to reflect OPPO’s “user-oriented” philosophy. The built-in Smart Facial Recognition, for instance, notifies users to switch to “Groufie” mode when more than three people are detected. This makes the switch from selfie to groufie effortless while keeping image quality stable.

The new smartphone still comes with the brand’s pioneering image editing software, Beautify 4.0, which offers a range of beautification modes for a flawless look in every selfies and groufies.

Built for professional photography

Significant improvements have also been made for the rear-facing camera. Co-developed by Sony, the 16MP back camera is now powered by a customized 1/2.8-inch IMX398 sensor for fast focusing speed, outstanding noise reduction, and advanced low-light performance—ideal for serious photography.

The sensor has been developed using dual-phase autofocus (DUAL PDAF) technology to double the pixel array area, which is composed of photodiodes that determine the camera’s point of focus. This increases focusing speeds by 40 percent even in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. Together with a large f/1.7 aperture, the sensor enables the rear camera to capture clear and breathtaking photos.

Flawless inside and out

The F3 Plus is engineered with hardware designed to support its powerful front and rear cameras. The phone’s octa-core processor is backed by a 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM to ensure speed, while OPPO’s ColorOS 3.0 optimizes performance to lower energy consumption.

A built-in 4000mAh battery provides more than 284 hours of standby time for whole-day use. OPPO’s proprietary and industry-leading rapid VOOC Charging Solution also cuts charging duration by four times compared with standard units; even five minutes on the plug is enough for a continuous two-hour call.

Dual SIM users will be glad to know that the F3 Plus includes a double-slot card tray for holding two Nano 4GSIM cards. The second slot can be used for a Micro SD card to expand storage up to 256GB.

Lightning-Fast Touch Access also unlocks the phone in just 0.2 seconds—the fastest in the market. The same scanning technology allows users to assign fingerprints to quickly launch phone numbers and apps. An Avast-based virus scanner further adds protection to keep phone data secure.

Exquisite craftsmanship for an upscale look

At the core of every OPPO phone is the brand’s belief in “design excellence.” Casing the F3 Plus is a sleek metal unibody that gives the phone an elegant form either in luxurious Black or opulent Gold. The back shell also comes with an innovative ultra-fine six-string antenna to exude a more upscale appearance. But beyond aesthetics, the body is sculpted for proper hand grip so users can take selfies with comfort.

To match the polished look is the phone’s durability. The six-inch display screen is made of 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to resist damage. Pre-applied protective coating further makes the screen scratch-proof.

The F3 Plus in Gold is coming to the Philippines this April 1 with the suggested retail price of P23,990. Pre-orders, along with a free Bluetooth headset and a selfie stick, will be available in all OPPO concept stores and selected dealer stores nationwide as well as at the brand’s official online shop in Lazada from March 24 to 31.

Shoppers can get OPPO’s latest Selfie Expert via Home Credit through a nine-month installment plan at zero percent interest. They can also watch out for Globe’s exclusive offer for OPPO F3 Plus, with date and details to be announced soon.
