Huawei P40 series: Official Malaysian pricing, pre-order details

Huawei Malaysia has taken the wraps off its flagship Huawei P40 and P40 Pro smartphones, just a week after their global debut.

Huawei P40 series pricing

Huawei is offering two models with a single configuration each. The Huawei P40 with 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage goes for MYR2,799 whereas the Huawei P40 Pro with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage retails for MYR3,899.

The two devices will be made available in Malaysia and Brunei first, offered in Deep Sea Blue, Black, Blush Gold, and Silver Frost colourways.

Pre-order details

From 3 April until 10 April 2020, pre-order customers will receive free gifts worth more than MYR1,300 which include Huawei Freebuds 3, 50GB cloud storage, Huawei Care (one-year extended warranty, one-month screen protection), three-month free subscription to Huawei Video, wireless charging case (for P40 only), and wireless car supercharger (for P40 Pro only).

Where to pre-order

You can place a pre-order via Huawei’s official online store, Huawei Flagship Lazada store, as well as Huawei’s telco/retail partners—Celcom Store (P40, P40 Pro), Senheng, and SenQ.

The flagship smartphone series will hit retail channels starting 11 April 2020.

Huawei AppGallery

No GMS, no problem, so it seems with Huawei’s growing app portfolio in its AppGallery. The brand says it now has 90 percent of the most frequently used apps by Malaysians including Facebook, WhatsApp, WeChat, Netflix, Instagram, TikTok, Lazada, and more. The AppGallery boasts four layers of protection that are certified by the highest industry standards. Sideloading apps not recommended, so get them from the AppGallery.

Huawei Video

Huawei Video is the brand’s subscription video service and Huawei Malaysia is offering three months free premium access to all P40 series and MatePad Pro users. Also, all existing Huawei users in Malaysia can also enjoy 1-month free premium access during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period.

Huawei Care 2020

Huawei Care 2020 encompasses three pillars of after sales service, which include a speedy one-hour repair service; one-time screen replacement, one-year extended warranty and monthly Huawei Service Day programme; and O20—its online to offline service. The AI-powered, location-based pick-up and delivery service allows you to make purchases or get your devices repaired or serviced without leaving your home.

New MatePad Pro, Huawei Watch GT2e

Besides the P40 Series, Huawei also unveiled the new MatePad Pro (MYR2,399) and Huawei Watch GT 2e (MYR599). Both will also be up for pre-order starting 3 April. Pre-order freebies worth up to MYR1,000 will be up for grabs.
