It is no longer news that Huawei’s latest flagship series, Huawei P40 series, is on the way (to arrive on March 26th). It is now about two weeks the debut of the P40 series. Thus, the price of the previous generation flagship, Huawei P30 Pro has been significantly reduced.
Recently (January 27), Suning Tesco online store shows that the Huawei P30 Pro (8GB + 256GB version) has a starting price of 4,088 yuan ($589). This is 1,900 yuan ($274) cheaper than the initial price of 5,988 yuan ($863). This is the highest ever price-cut that the Huawei P30 Pro is getting since its release. Not even during the famous 11.11 sales or BlackFriday sales did it get this sort of price cut.
[Update] Huawei P30 Pro 8GB+128GB version also gets a price cut
Today (March 7), Huawei officially announced that the 8GB + 128GB version has a price of 3588 yuan ($517). This is 1400 yuan ($202) cheaper than its original 4988 yuan ($719) launch price.

I think you’ve made a mistake. The listing you’re showing screenshots of is a P30. Which has always been a lot cheaper than the Pro.
