The most affordable 5G smartphone that’s available in the Philippines has become more budget-friendly.
Originally priced at P19,990 (around $411 converted), the Huawei Nova 7 SE 5G is now retailing at P17,999 ($370). That’s a markdown amounting to P1,991 ($41) — essentially already P2,000.
Huawei Philippines announces the price cut for the Nova 7 SE 5G
The price drop makes the Huawei Nova 7 SE 5G an even more compelling device to own, as it’s future-proof. With telecommunication companies Globe Telecom and Smart Communications currently rolling out their respective 5G networks, you won’t have to think of replacing your phone every now and then. That’s more savings for you during these trying times. You can find some of our speed tests in the following stories:
