Huawei’s groundbreaking P-series may have launched globally a couple of weeks ago (and Malaysia on 3 April), however it has only hit its own home market last week. Sales though, has been off to a scorching start, according to Huawei. How hot?
Huawei did not reveal the breakdown of each model, but regardless, it sure is looking rosy for the tech giant’s new flagship devices.
In China, Huawei offers more hardware options compared to Malaysia. The Huawei P20 is available in 6GB RAM + 64GB storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage options. They costs CNY3,788 and CNY4,288 respectively.
Meanwhile, the Huawei P20 Pro has three variants: 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, 6GB RAM + 128GB storage and 6GB + 256GB storage options. They are priced at CNY4,988, CNY5,488 and CNY6,288 respectively.
Note that both models actually cost more in China compared to Malaysia. As an example, the P20 with 128GB of storage sells for MYR2,599 but retails at CNY4,288 (MYR2,656) in China.
The P20 and P20 Pro boast the most radical redesign in the series since it was introduced. Its long term collaboration with Leica has put it in good stead in the smartphone camera department, claiming the title “the best smartphone camera in the world.”
