Huawei Mate 30: Specs, features, and price in the Philippines
Pre-order for the Huawei Mate 30 series has begun and those interested in getting the Huawei phone immediately can pre-order theirs from October 28 to November 8, 2019. The pre-order promo includes a Huawei wireless charger and a Huawei wireless car charger.
The Huawei Mate 30 series will be competing with the likes of the Samsung Note10 series and the latest iPhone 11 phones – the Pro version specifically. The base Mate 30's closest competitions, price-wise, include the OPPO Reno2 at P28,990, and the Samsung Galaxy S10e at P39,990. Many are interested in seeing how the new Huawei mobile ecosystem will turn out after the manufacturer lost their Google Android license and key Google services due to a US government order.
At the Huawei Mate 30 launch in the Philippines, Huawei appears to be starting to push for Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) – the ecosystem that will serve as the replacement for Google services should the US issues remain unresolved. George Li, head of Huawei's consumer business division, discussed how HMS is gearing up to cater to the needs of users in the mobile office space, smart home, fitness and health, entertainment, and travel.
He said they'll be bringing in more of these "ecosystem products" to the country. “With HMS at the core of our extensive product lineup, we are gradually building a stronger and smarter ecosystem that fulfills a wide variety of roles depending on the situation," he said.
