The recent Huawei Mate 30 series price cut is “as usual”. It is common for older flagships to reduce its price before the arrival of a new flagship. This will encourage some folks to sill purchase the older flagship.
[UPDATE] Mate 30 Pro also gets a 300 yuan ($42) price cut
On the Shun Grid Mall, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G 8GB + 128GB version is currently selling with a price cut. This smartphone is available for 5599 yuan ($780). This is a 300 yuan ($42) price cut from the original 5899 yuan ($842) price tag.
A few days ago, two Huawei smartphones, ANA-AN00 and ELS-AN00, got 3C certification. These two phones should be the upcoming Huawei P40 and P40 Pro. According to Yu Chengdong, the Huawei P40 series will arrive in Europe through conventional sales channels. In addition, they will continue to use the EMUI system on top of Android (Android 10). However, just like Huawei’s recent phones, it will not use Google Mobile Services. However, this new series will probably come with Huawei Mobile Services which is slowly gaining popularity.
The Huawei P40 Pro will adopt a dual-aperture full-screen design. This smartphone will use a Kirin 990 chip, a dual 32-megapixel front camera, and a rear-matrix Leica five-camera module.
