Solid Group, Inc., the parent company of Filipino smartphone brand MyPhone, launches a new line of smartphones that’s even more Pinoy. It’s called the Brown and Proud Movement.

So, there’s the Brown 1 and the Brown 2. Both smartphones are brown in color (of course), come in brown boxes and have a pre-installed app called Brown and Proud Dream Portal.

The Brown and Proud Dream Portal seems to be an all-in-one app. It features Live Video, an E-Magazine, Mobile Commerce and Financial Technology or FinTech.

Perhaps, the most interesting part of the Brown and Proud Movement is the promise that its members can earn up to a million Pesos! There’s not much information about this yet. It’s said to be a new Generation Multi-Level Marketing with Security and Integrity though.

HOOQ, My INQUIRER, Ninja Van, Converge ICT, PayMaya, EON for the Digital Me and Virtalus Cloud Hosting are all partners of the movement.
