The 5G Era is really here as Huawei officially releases the first 5G smartphone in the Philippines –the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G!
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is now available now at Lazada, and at Huawei concept stores and kiosks starting February 8, 2020. Those ordering from Lazada can get a Free bluetooth speaker + Php500 voucher, while those ordering from offline stores will receive a 50GB of Huawei Cloud Storage for the first 3 months and 1,200 Huawei points.
Currently having the highest score at the DXO mark for photography, the main difference of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is as its name suggests the ability to connect to 5G networks. Currently only Makati and a few areas in Clark have 5G but the roll-out of this next gen tech is expected this year.
Another difference is the slightly faster Kirin 990 5G compared to the regular Kirin 990 in other Mate 30 Pro smartphones. It still retains the same waterfall drop curved screen, and 4500mAh Battery that supports 40W Huawei SuperCharge, 27W Fast Wireless Charging, Reverse Charging, & Reverse Wireless Charging.
The Mate 30 Pro 5G also has the same set of Super Cine Lens Cameras– a 40MP main camera, 40MP ultra-wide camera, 8MP telephoto 5x zoom camera and a 3D TOF camera. For selfies, it has a 32MP selfie camera+ 3D TOF camera.
The Mate 30 Pro 5G still won’t ship with Google Apps, but the Huawei APP Gallery continues to grow with more local apps being added everyday.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is priced at ₱55,990.00 and will only be available in Orange color variant.
