So remember the Lenovo smartphone I’ve had my eye on for awhile now? Well it’s finally here in the Philippines!
Last Saturday at Mall of Asia, Lenovo in partnership with Forever 21 finally debuted their latest premium smartphone product, the fashionable all-glass exterior Lenovo S850. They launched it along with another one of their newest products, the Lenovo A8-50 tablet through a fashion show featuring the clothes of Forever 21.
Before the main show started, the band Climax came on stage to entertain the crowd. Climax is a masked singer that is known for his passionate stage performance. He plays with 3 exceptionally talented musicians.. Khem, Norman and Stanley. That info is from their Facebook page by the way.
Am actually a fan of Climax. Ryan and I are both fans. We usually hear Climax when we’re at Mary Grace’s Cafe in Greenbelt 2. This guy can sing! Unlike some band singers, he’s got this really smooth voice that can hit the high notes without hurting your ears! He’s really good!
The event was hosted by Lenovo Mobile Philippines’ brand ambassador, KC Montero and Myx VJ Joyce Pring.
And DJ Carlo Atendido (he’s cute!) provided the music for the fashion show. His music mix was real nice. It’s the kind that makes you want to dance right there and then. Not that I did! I was working after all.
360g, the Lenovo A8-50’s svelte eight-inch frame easily
fits into the user’s hand. Its sharp,
colourful 8-inch display produces bright HD images. The front-facing, Dolby® Audio speakers make it an
excellent choice for playing games, watching videos, listening to music, and
interacting with friends online. By activating Smart Sidebar, users can enjoy
optimal video and audio settings for vertical or horizontal modes. Smart Sidebar
also suggests recently-used apps.
It also comes in midnight blue, pearly white, flamenco red, and canary yellow, for users
to express their sense of individuality.
Lenovo’s partnership with Forever 21 for the launch of the A8-50 tablet and S850 smartphone is part of its continuous consumer brand-building effort. The decision
is in tandem with Lenovo’s strategy of attacking today’s young consumer market
by banking on the fashion brand’s reputation as an authority on fashion and the
go-to retailer for the latest trends and must-have styles. As
a global fashion brand that appeals to today’s Millennial generation, Forever
21 reinforces Lenovo’s “For Those Who Do” campaign and communicates Lenovo’s
position as a youth-centric brand.
