This is not fake news: Huawei Philippines is dropping the prices of three smartphones you probably have been eyeing for a while now.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Nova 3i, and Y9 2019 all get a price cut starting March 9.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Best camera phone we’ve used thus far

Launched in London in October last year, the technology giant’s current flagship device costs P49,990 (around $955). Beginning Saturday, though, you can buy it for only P44,990 ($860). Its non-Pro sibling, the Mate 20, already got discounted by P5,000 ($96) since February 9. This makes the Mates two of the best value-for-money phones in the premium segment.

We believe the Huawei P30 Pro, launching in Paris on March 26, will get the original suggested retail price of the Mate 20 Pro as soon as it becomes available in the Philippines. Just a guess.

How about the two midrange handsets that are also set to go on sale a few days from now? The Huawei Nova 3i, released in the country in August for P15,990 ($306), is going to sell for only P13,990 ($268). The Huawei Y9 2019, on the other hand, will retail for P11,990 ($229), down from P12,990 ($249).
