Huawei struggled in the past few years due to the US ban and saw its market share shrinking to small numbers. However, since the end of the last year, the brand started to launch more devices, and apparently, it’s finally finding a way to improve the flow of releases. This year, the company already introduced a bunch of Nova smartphones. Now, the company is introducing the Huawei Nova Y70 Plus with a 6.75-inch display. The device has been “semi-announced” by Huawei and its target is the South-African market. It’s another sign of Huawei investing in other markets apart from China in a bid to get more revenue from places that haven’t much intense competition. The company has set up a teaser page and the sales will begin on May 1.
The company allows customers to pre-order the Huawei Nova Y70 Plus from April 21 until April 30. Huawei requires the users to pay just ZAR 99 as a deposit, and that is about $6. After that, the users will get a ZAR 499 or $33 price cut when they pay the balance between April 28 and May 6. The company really wants its users to pre-order this smartphone. It’s also offering a Huawei Bluetooth Speaker and Huawei Backpack for those pre-ordering the device. It’s worth a combined ZAR 1,298 apparently ($86). If that isn’t enough for you, the company also offers 24 months warranty, 50 days of free screen replacement insurance, and 3 months of extended warranty. There is also the Huawei Unboxing Service, and Free Repair shipping and delivery.
