Earlier this month, Huawei opens pre-registrations of interest for the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro in Singapore. Right now, the Chinese smartphone maker has also confirmed that the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro duo will be up for pre-order in Philippine starting October 28th.
Once again, the pricing of the smartphones are considerably lower than what Huawei had announced for the European market during their Berlin launch event. According to Huawei, the Mate 30 will be priced at just PHP 34,990 (US$682), while the Mate 30 Pro will stood at a higher price tag of PHP 50,990 (US$994).
Similar to what we’d saw in Singapore and Malaysia, we do expect Huawei to reward the early birds with a slew of free gifts for those who pre-ordered the device. However, this has yet to be officially confirmed by the company so far.
As usual, the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro sold in Philippines will not be pre-loaded with Google Play apps and services out of the box. However, a recent workaround involving the use of VMOS, an app software based on virtual machine, was discovered and could potentially bring those curcial apps to the device.
If you still remember, there was another workaround previously which involves the installation of a third-party device manager app known as LZ Play. This method however, had became obsolete after the website hosting LZ Play went offline.
