Huawei Australia this evening announced Australian pricing and availability for their hugely anticipated P20 Pro.
First, the big news – at $1,099 Huawei has brought the phone to the local market at a killer price. The European launch price of €849 had us concerned that the phone would be priced over $1,300 here.
However, if you’re looking to get in on the action you’ll have to be prepared to shell out all those dollaroos at once – the phone isn’t (at this point) heading to any Australian carriers.
You can expect some great specs for your hard-earned cash though, with the phone sporting 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage – far above similarly high profile phones at the same price point.
The P20 Pro is also the only place you’ll find the triple camera system co-designed by Leica and Huawei. It’s been turning heads with some amazing shots including a brilliant Night mode since the phone’s launch in March.
Be sure to check out our P20 Pro review for an in depth look at the phone, with a big focus on the camera – it really is something special.
The phone’s Twilight finish is stunning, and Ausdroid’s shiny blue review unit is FINE but feels a little less special by comparison.
The wait will soon be over, with the Huawei P20 Pro will be available in stores starting May 18. The phone will be available in Black or Twilight from JB Hi-fi and MobileCiti, while Harvey Norman will be stock the phone in Black. We highly recommend checking it out in person.
