How much the Huawei Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro will cost in PH

In Phonesby Ramon Lopez2 Comments

Weeks after opening registrations for the 4G versions of the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro in the Philippines, Huawei has revealed local pricing for its latest flagship smartphones. For obvious reasons, the 5G Mate 30 variants won’t be released here.

(Update, October 22: We have a date! Read Huawei Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro PH launch date revealed.)

So, how much do they cost? The Huawei Mate 30 will retail at P34,990, or around $683 converted. The top-end Mate 30 Pro, on the other hand, will sell for P50,990 ($996) in the country.

Preorders begin October 28, according to the company’s official social media page. Huawei’s local pricing is not only reasonable, but also lower than the prices we saw in Germany where the handsets made their global debut.

And knowing Huawei, we can expect a nice set of freebies waiting for those who purchase the phones early. We hope it will include a DJI Osmo Mobile 3 phone gimbal, which pairs well with the Mate 30 Pro’s highest-rated (per DxOMark numbers) quad-camera system.

In front, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro has been outfitted with a 32-megapixel selfie camera and a 3D TOF sensor to make face unlock more secure and accurate.
