Watch out for Vivo’s newest ‘eXciting’ innovation




Young global smartphone brand Vivo never fails to thrill. It thrilled mobile fans worldwide with its forward-looking innovations, especially when they came out with a 20-megapixel front camera smartphone and released models with 24MP selfie camera next.

The list goes on and on since then. Two years after it was launched in the Philippines, the commitment to satisfy smartphone users has never wavered. Now, Vivo is bringing another innovation in the Philippines. No word has been said about the next model the brand will introduce in the Philippines, but Vivo confirmed it has an “eXciting touch” to it.

The young global smartphone brand has made a mark in the smartphone industry by outplaying its competitors with its top-of-the-line developments.

Aside from the selfie camera, Vivo is also a leading innovator of display screens. It has recently pushed for a 100% full-screen display when it launched its concept smartphone APEX™ FullView™ earlier this year. The same concept smartphone also boasted of an elevating front camera and screen SoundCasting technology to achieve the FullView™ screen.

Vivo broke another record when it introduced a ready-to-produce smartphone with an In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, which was showcased during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018.

With its many firsts, Vivo is a true leader in bringing the smartphone technology to the future.

Liza Soberano : A pretty face deserves a beautiful smile



Liza Soberano for GAOC

Liza Soberano—Hope Elizabeth Soberano in real life—has indeed come along way from her early and humble showbiz beginnings to her present stature as one of the most bankable young actresses.

GAOC at Robinsons Magnolia

Apart from innate acting abilities, Liza has one of the prettiest faces in the entertainment industry and has a beautiful smile that easily charms everyone she meets. Helping Liza maintain that beautiful smile for several years now is Dr. Steve Mark Gan of GAOC—the Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center, which has consistently raised the standards of dental practice in the country. GAOC has been Liza's dental clinic of choice from the first day she sought its services.

“We’re very happy with the trust and love that Liza Soberano has shown the GAOC family all these years,” says Dr. Gan. “In return, we take care of her dental needs with the kind of love, expertise, and professionalism that only we can offer”.

Born and raised in California to a Filipino father and an American mother, Liza moved to Manila at age 10 and was soon receiving offers for print ad modelling stints. After she was spotted by a talent scout, she made a series of television appearances and did small movie roles, until her breakout role in the hit 2014 television series Forevermore, which became her stepping stone to stardom. Paired for the first time with Enrique Gil, the new love team became a big hit and was dubbed “LizQuen”.

GAOC at The Residences at Greenbelt
With her growing popularity, Liza has crossed over to the movies. After last year’s certified box office hit My Ex and Whys, she will be the next Darna in the popular komiks franchise’s latest adaptation.

Things are indeed looking up for Liza Soberano, who was named in one survey as the most beautiful face in the world, and she is relying on GAOC to keep her smile bright and sunny as she pursues her flourishing acting career.
