Huawei‘s latest flagship phones are finally being offered by Smart Communications, too.

The Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro are currently up for preorder at PLDT’s wireless subsidiary until June 21, with early adopters of the former getting two freebies worth P6,880 (around $137 converted) in total — the Huawei Band 4 and the Huawei TalkBand B3 Lite. The higher-specced unit, on the other hand, comes with a preorder bundle valued at P13,990 ($278) — free Huawei FreeBuds 3 and TalkBand B3 Lite.

You may preorder now to get as much as P13,990 ($278) worth of freebies

You can avail yourself of the regular P40 model for P2,399 ($48) a month for 24 months with a P4,210 ($84) initial cash out. These are the inclusions for this particular postpaid plan, Signature Device Plan L:

  • 15GB worth of data
  • Unlimited texts to all networks
  • Unlimited calls within the network
  • 150 minutes of calls to any network AnyNet Calls
  • Hyun Bin tabletop
  • Hyun Bin pillow

The same featured Smart postpaid plan for the Pro model lets you own the top-rated camera phone for P2,899 ($58) per month for two years with an initial cash out of P9,300 ($185).

Priced at P36,990 ($735) and P50,990 ($1,013), respectively, the Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro were launched in the Philippines end-April, with Globe Telecom first offering it on postpaid.

We’ve personally tried the Ayala-led telco’s 5G service on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, the first 5G handset in the country, and the P40 series models should work on the same network, too. Smart, on the other hand, has yet to make a formal announcement on the commercial release of its 5G network. But we’re pretty sure the future-proof devices will get access to it as soon as the telco’s 5G service goes live.
