Prestigio, a leading European manufacturer of luxury mobile devices, consumer electronics, and accessories at affordable prices, is now in the Philippines in response to a booming smartphone market.
The brand announced its entry into the country with the launch of a range of smartphone models.
Prestigio is distributed in the Philippines by Veracity Mobile, a consumer electronics and solutions distribution company initially folded into Veracity Synergy Solutions — a telecommunications services and solutions provider in the Philippines.
“We at Prestigio are all very excited about our products entering one of the most dynamic, aggressive and competitive smartphone markets in Asia, if not the world,” Jojit Alcazar, Prestigio managing director, said.
“In bringing this new range of smartphones to the Philippines, we hope to let Filipinos experience refinement, and a taste of unparalleled European design, aesthetics, technology and performance,” Alcazar added.
“The Philippines is our very first official distributor in Asia, demonstrating our confidence that we will be able to extend our global reach into the Filipino mobile market,” said Sergey Bezruchenok, product development manager of Prestigio Global.
“After seeing Prestigio gain strong traction in several markets as a credible alternative to established brands at extremely competitive prices, we now look forward to replicating this success in the Philippines,” Bezruchenok said.

Alcazar said the Prestigio Multiphone series is perfectly targeted at the growing number of cost-conscious but intelligent smartphone buyers in the Philippines. “We understand the unique and different needs and behavior of Filipino mobile consumers, which is why Prestigio has come up with a range of options that will fit their lifestyle and budget,” Alcazar added.
