Cellprime launches Hyundai Aero Plus, smartphone designed as a Filipino gentleman’s accessory

In the Philippines, Hyundai is a brand associated with cars, and to some extent heavy equipment and industrial machines.

The Korean brand is expanding its presence in the mobile devices market as well with the launch of the Hyundai Aero Plus.

Cellprime Distribution Corporation (Cellprime) brings the Hyundai Aero Plus in the country, a smartphone that specifically targets male consumers. The new smartphone, which comes in two variants (32 GB and 64 GB variants) will be sold exclusively in online retailer shop Lazada.

The Hyundai Aero Plus debuted in a press event inside—where else—Hyundai dealership Autohub in Chino Roces avenue in Makati City.

Hyundai Aero Plus, with its sleek form factor and features, would appeal to a gentleman—much like how a Hyundai car would appeal to male consumers, according to Joey Oreta, Cell Prime chief marketing officer.

“An important point about Hyundai Aero Plus is that it is priced competitive, just like Hyundai cars. It’s an affordable luxury and that is what we want to achieve,” he said.

Just like how Hyundai Tucson appeals to males 25 to 35 years old, the Hyundai Aero, whic offers features inspired by Hyundai’s latest vehicles, would appeal to this market segment.


The Hyundai Aero Plus brings a sleek, highly optimized body structure, a sophisticated matrix, and maximum storage space. The device comes in 32GB and 64GB models.

Cellprime expects the Hyundai Aero Plus to resonate strongly with design-and-style-conscious men and car enthusiasts, given the phone’s sleek form factor and impressive features.

“Our partnership with Hyundai has enabled us to bring compelling smartphone devices to Filipinos, such as the Hyundai Aero Plus, the first smartphone designed as a gentleman’s accessory and essential daily companion,” said Eric Yu.

“With the Hyundai Mobile brand, CellPrime is set to attract the country’s population of young achievers, empowering us to fulfill the smartphone needs of every lifestyle.”

Cellprime forged a partnership with Korean automotive titan Hyundai, enabling both to benefit from their respective expertise in design, innovation, local market expertise and mobile technology leadership.

The Hyundai Aero Plus is the second phone model to be launched under the Hyundai Mobile brand in just a little over a year of partnership.

Beginning with the successful release of Hyundai Aero earlier this year, Hyundai Mobile will continue to bring mobile devices for mid-to-high-end smartphone users in the Philippines.

“Driven by our commitment to understand the market, our partnership with Hyundai helps us to fill the gaps in smartphone adoption by catering to Filipino gentlemen,” said Yu. “Hyundai Mobile expands our reach and solidifies our position as a driving force in the industry.”
