The 5G era is clearly upon us. Recently, Huawei released the very first 5G-enabled device in the Philippines, the brand new Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G.
As the name suggests, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is similar to the Mate 30 Pro that was already in the Philippines for months, except for some minor differences. So if you want to learn more about its performance, camera quality, and more, you can check out our full review.
What’s new here is, obviously, the 5G connectivity. This is enabled by its special Kirin 990 5G processor. This chipset also has higher clock speeds than the standard Kirin 990 processor of the vanilla Mate 30 Pro model.
To set it apart from the 4G-only model, the Mate 30 Pro 5G is exclusively available on in Orange leather. Admittedly, it looks more vibrant and eye-catching than the regular models.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G will be available starting February 8, 2020, with an official price of Php55,990. The first 1,000 units sold will come with free 50GB of Huawei cloud storage for three months. There’s also the free 1,250 Huawei points, which you can use for in-app purchases in Huawei apps.
However, not a lot of people still have access to 5G. If you’re one of those people, you can also get the Mate 30 Pro 4G, which just got a price drop.
