Aside from the luxurious handset, Mr. Pangilinan is also treating the entire team to an extravagant trip and vacation to Hong Kong.

The Filipino billionaire is also pleased on how the series ended and even bared that players from both squads have the potential to represent the country in international basketball tournaments after displaying their talents all throughout the Season 80 best-of-three finals series.

The iPhone X has been available in the US and UK markets a month ago and it was just released in the Philippines last Friday. The prestigious smartphone is priced at Php 64,490 (64GB) and Php 73,990 (256GB) according to Apple Philippines page.

Lucky for the Blue Eagles, they don’t have to spend that much on the world’s most high-end smartphone up to date. It will be best used in taking photos as souvenirs in Hong Kong too!
