Galaxy S9 1

Been itching to get your hands on Samsung’s latest flagships? the good news is that both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are now up for pre-order, along with some nice freebies!

Galaxy S9 2

Both the S9 and S9+ feature Samsung’s signature design with their curved Super AMOLED displays, and are powered by a top of the line Exynos 9810 octa-core processor along with 4GB/6GB of RAM.

The new devices have also been taken up a notch in terms of optics. The 12MP rear camera is able to capture super slow motion videos, along with the dual aperture feature, for spectacular looking shots even in less than ideal condition. There’s auto-take, which allows users to automatically record a slow motion video of a moving subject. Now, they can also use a short video as a lock screen decoration, and even place background music on slow motion videos. The S9+ in particular, also sports a second 12MP rear camera with a telephoto lens that lets it zoom in on details.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will retail for PhP45,990, while the S9+ will be priced at PhP52,990 for the 64GB variant, PhP55,990  for the 128GB variant, and PhP60,990 for the 256GB variant.

As an added bonus, everyone who will pre-order will also get their choice of an exclusive gift – an AKG S30 Bluetooth Speaker, a Wireless Charger Convertible, or PhP3,500  worth of vouchers that can be used to purchase any Samsung mobile product from  the same store, and on the same day of purchase.

There are also additional complimentary giveaways which include a 6-month Screen Warranty voucher, Zalora and honestbee vouchers, and 10% off on selected Samsung wearables.

You can pre-order your own Galaxy S9 or S9+ until March 6, 2018 at samsung.com/ph/s9preorder, Samsung Experience Stores, and select Abenson’s and SM Appliance Stores nationwide.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

Without questions, Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Plus is the best camera smartphone the Cherry Mobile has to date. We haven’t seen other Cherry Mobile phones that are capable of taking photos with impressive quality than the one we brought to Japan to cover Tokyo Game Show 2018.

If you have been following our Instagram posts (@gadgetpilipinas) during our coverage of the TGS 2018, our daily driver was the Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Plus.  So, feast your eyes and take a look at some of our photos:

After looking for a 100-Yen store to buy Allan’s towel (since our AirBnB didn’t have any towels available), we took a break at this vending machine to reward ourselves a cold drink.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
