Samsung Electronics Co. is raising the bar in the premium smartphone market with the launch of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23. The new lineup represents a new era of mobile technology, offering users a superior experience with cutting-edge features and sustainable design.

According to TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Experience Business at Samsung Electronics, the value of innovative technology is not just in what it provides today, but also in its impact on the future. He adds that the Galaxy S series lineup is the new benchmark of premium smartphone experiences, combining powerful and lasting innovations with sustainability.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra is the flagship device, with an embedded S Pen, offering users even more productivity and creativity. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy provides premium experiences, such as breakthrough AI, future-proof mobile gaming and sustained game play with the world’s fastest mobile graphics. Meanwhile, the camera offers more freedom for users to explore their creativity, including capturing stunning cinematic Nightography videos.

A Samsung Galaxy Camera with More Megapixels and Extensive Creative Controls, From Day to Night
Galaxy S23 Ultra makes it easier for any level of photographer to capture phenomenal content. It offers Samsung Galaxy’s most advanced camera system, tailored for nearly any lighting conditions and engineered to render incredible detail. Improved Nightography capabilities transform how the Galaxy S series optimizes photos and videos in a wide range of ambient conditions. Filming a favorite song at a concert, snapping a selfie at the aquarium, or grabbing a group shot of friends at dinner — users can get sharper images and videos4. Visual noise that usually ruins low-light images is corrected by a new AI-powered image signal processing (ISP) algorithm that enhances object details and color tone.

In a Samsung Galaxy-first, Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts a new 200MP Adaptive Pixel sensor that captures epic moments with incredible precision. It uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once.5 And because selfie cameras are more important than ever to how we communicate today, the Galaxy S23 series introduces fast autofocus and our first Super HDR selfie camera, jumping from 30fps to 60fps, for noticeably better front-facing images and videos.

Since the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung Galaxy increases its use of recycled materials from six internal components in Galaxy S22 Ultra to 12 internal and external components in Galaxy S23 Ultra. Galaxy S23 series also has a wider variety of recycled materials than any other Galaxy smartphone, including pre-consumer recycled aluminum and glass and post-consumer recycled plastics sourced from discarded fishing nets, PET bottles and water barrels. The new S series is the first to market Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2, offering durability for long-term use and consisting of an average of 22 percent pre-consumer recycled content25. Plus, every Galaxy S23 smartphone comes in a redesigned packaging box which applied paper made with 100 percent recycled paper.

User-Friendly Security and Privacy Enable a Transparent Experience without Compromise
Secure and private experiences are the foundation of the Galaxy S23 series. Every smartphone comes with Samsung's end-to-end Samsung Knox protection, which has received more government and industry certifications than any other mobile device, platform, or solution on the market. The Security and Privacy Dashboard on Samsung Galaxy gives users full visibility over who has access to their data and how it’s being used. With just a glance, it’s easy to see if personal data is at risk and receive simple prompts to change settings for a more secure experience. Users can also decide exactly which applications and programs get access to their data and how it can be used.

More Freedom and Flexibility for Connected Lifestyles
At the core of the Samsung Galaxy S series’ premium experience is the uncompromising innovation of Samsung Galaxy Ultra. But the power and creative capabilities of Samsung Galaxy Ultra don’t stop at smartphones. With the brand new, first-ever Galaxy Book3 Ultra, and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, users can now enjoy an ultimate Samsung Galaxy’s ecosystem.

Across every Galaxy S series model, connected experiences get added benefits. Samsung Multi Control29, which connects mouse and keyboard functionality between a Samsung Galaxy PC and tablet, now extends to Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 for the ultimate flexibility between devices. Plus, enhanced text usability makes it easy to copy and paste text, like URLs, from one device to another to pick up an activity on another device.

Uratex Monoblock Leads the Charge in Durable and Safe Plastic Furnishings with the "Bawal ang Marupok" Campaign

12:01:00 AM


When you are furnishing your home, workplace, or establishment, plastic chairs, tables, and drawers are a must-have! These versatile essentials have proven their worth time and time again by transforming any space into a functional and inviting haven that can easily redesigned as needed.

But with so many brands producing plastic home furnishings, specifically monobloc chairs, how do you know which ones are worth your money? The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), through the Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS), has got your back! They've implemented strict guidelines and standards to ensure the quality and safety of monobloc chairs and stools, requiring all manufacturers to apply for the mandatory Philippine Standard (PS) mark - proof that the product passed the DTI-BPS's rigorous standards.


Enter Uratex Monoblock - the plastic furniture brand that's taking the market by storm! By adhering to the DTI-BPS's standards, Uratex Monoblock has become the first brand in the Philippines to pass the highest plastic furniture standard in the country - the Level 5 of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) - ISO 7173. With its mission to provide top-notch products and cater to consumers' desire for durable, value-for-money items, Uratex Monoblock is a clear choice for those who want to make their home, workplace, or establishment as stylish and functional as possible!


Why Bawal Ang Marupok?
Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the brand launched the Bawal ang Marupok campaign with the goal to educate and equip the market on how to be keen and discerning when it comes to investing in plastic chairs and to avoid marupok or brittle ones that can potentially harm them. One of the ways that the brand emphasized is to check the warning label to see if the chair has PS certification and recommended seat load capacity for safety and assurance.

Moreover, the campaign aims to highlight the brand’s ongoing thrust and purpose to nurture and protect its consumers by providing top-notch quality products that are not just ergonomic in its design but also durable and will stand the test of time.


In the recently held campaign media launch at Eton Centris, on January 17, 2023, Uratex Monoblock conducted a forum led by Uratex Monoblock Business Unit Director Dindo Medina, Department of Trade & Industry-Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) Assistant Director Ferdinand L. Manfoste and Department of Science & Technology - Forest Products Research & Development Institute (DOST-FPRDI) Deputy Director Rico Cabangon as part of the panel. During the panel discussion, Mr. Medina explained the objective, rationale, and inspiration behind the Bawal Ang Marupok campaign. As for Mr. Ferdinand Manfoste and Mr. Rico Cabangon they explained why Uratex Monoblock chairs easily pass, if not exceed industry's standards. Both industry experts shared their insights on the safety and durability of Uratex Monoblock chairs.


“Uratex Monoblock’s passion has always been to provide our consumers with quality items,” Mr. Medina shared. “With the Bawal ang Marupok campaign, we aim to further communicate Uratex Monoblock’s standard for excellent craftsmanship, as well as to educate consumers to be more discerning of the quality and durability of plastic chairs as they value the safety of their family.”


Apart from industry experts, Mommy celebrities, Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio and Camille Prats Yambao graced the event to share their thoughts and actual experiences – highlighting their role as a mom to be alert and well-informed with regards to buying quality household items for the home.

“For me, my family’s safety always comes first,” Rica shared. “Whenever I purchase items for our home, I always consider how the item can serve our family. Is it safe? Is it durable? Can it last for a long time?” “Monobloc chairs have been a Filipino household staple, but I agree that not all are made the same,” Camille said. “I really agree with Uratex Monoblock’s campaign, bawal talaga ang marupok. It’s really an invitation for every Filipino home to give importance to products that are safe and durable,” she added.


Media invitees were also given a short walk-through of how Uratex Monoblock chairs are being tested before they go out to the market. They also got to participate in various strength tests that ensure the durability of Uratex Monoblock chairs. This is what I think is called the stress test.

Uratex Monoblock chairs come in various designs and styles and are both BPS and ISO Level 5 certified. They are guaranteed safe and durable, can withstand time, and can hold up to 200 kilos. With its recent campaign launch, Uratex Monoblock is a living proof that quality and durability matters – Bawal ang Marupok!

Uncovering the Truth Behind the Mang Kanor Scandal: Watch the Shocking Story Unfold on AQ Prime

7:11:00 AM


The image of Mang Kanor left a negative connotation to all. For most of the guys, it's more admiration, while for the ladies, it's disgust.

Who wouldn't be, knowing that you're filming all your sexual acts? Worst, it was leaked and uploaded to the internet. And that's when he became famous and sensational, because the videos went viral. It was a scandal that made his name known.

According to stories, the videos on his phone were for himself only. Unfortunately, it was snatched, and that's where it all started.




According to stories on the internet, Mang Kanor was an ex-police officer, but it wasn't clear if he retired from the service. Or he went absent without leave, or was AWOL.

He was a generous man. He helped most of the students that he knew with their financial needs. And probably this sparked a few dark thoughts in him since some of the students are pretty.

At present, Mang Kanor is a name coined for a dirty old man dating young girls.

Though the act and name of Mang Kanor became a sensational story, only a few people knew the story. So, this 2023 AQ Prime streams his story to give a platform to describe who Mang Kanor was. Also, what had happened in his life, and the real story.

In this movie, Rez Cortez plays the role of Mang Kanor. Together with some of the sexy stars in AQ Prime, this ensemble is the whole cast of this movie.

We have known Rez Cortez, and throughout his career in showbiz, he has played plenty of roles. From kontrabida to sidekick, from drama to comedy, has nailed and concreted his acting skills in the industry.

Watch the stream on AQ Prime!
