Meet the new face of Samsung Galaxy A Series: the Queen, Kylie Verzosa!
The latest devices were introduced through a unique water and lights spectacle, as well as the bold entrance of Samsung’s newest brand ambassador, Kylie Verzosa, the reigning Ms. International 2016.

World-class dance group GForce’s fiery performance also made a splash on the stage’s pool of water. It was an innovative display running on high-octane energy and a lot of attitude – a perfect way to introduce the Galaxy A Series (2017), the smartphone with attitude.

The winning features of the Galaxy A Series (2017) phones such as its water and dust resistance (IP68) as well as its high-resolution camera entralled the audience right before brand ambassador Kylie Verzosa and dance group GForce took to the stage.

"Just like the Galaxy A Series (2017), Kylie is smart, stylish, and always ahead of the game. Kylie best suits the title as its new ambassador as she’s also known for her winning ways even under pressure; comparable to how the Galaxy A Series (2017) is packed with premium features that stand out, even when faced with the challenges of rain, sweat, sand, or dust," Samsung said in a statement.

"She is constantly seeking to do more – whether as a beauty queen, a teacher, a corporate warrior, or as somebody who’s ready to dive in and take on any adventure that life throws her way. As a role model to many millennials, she embodies flexibility and she doesn’t settle for anything less than the best – exactly how the Galaxy A Series (2017) is positioned in the market," the South Korean company added.
