You can now get the Huawei Mate Xs 5G exclusively from Globe Platinum through ThePlatinum Plan 4999 — the telco’s featured postpaid plan for the device. For P4,999 (around $101) a month for 24 months and a one-time cash out of P70,800 ($1,432), you get the following:

  • all-month data surfing;
  • two days of data roaming;
  • unlimited calls and texts to subscribers of all networks;
  • unlimited calls to DUO and landline in the same area;
  • P1,500 ($30) worth of consumable allowance;
  • double Globe Rewards Points, where two points are earned for every P50 ($1) billed amount; and
  • access to Globe Priority Network; Thea, the Globe Platinum digital assistant; airport lounges; and priority-passenger programs, among others.

However, take note that only 50 Huawei Mate Xs 5G units will be up for grabs. Off-contract, the foldable smartphone is priced at P139,999 ($2,831). Some of its highlights include a falcon-wing design that’s more durable than the one on the Mate X; a powerful Kirin 990 chip; and an integrated 40-megapixel Supersensing Leica Quad-Camera System.

This is the sixth 5G Huawei model in Globe Telecom’s stable. Already on offer are the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G variant, Huawei Nova 7 SE, Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, and Huawei P40 Pro Plus. Pretty much a signal that the Ayala-led telco is indeed going to officially launch its 5G service this month.

But make no mistake, while the next-generation network is not commercially available yet, you can already get 5G signal in select areas, such as in Taguig City’s Bonifacio Global City or BGC.
