TEKNOKU.me – Some time ago, Huawei introduced Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro in the launch event which was held in Munich, Germany.
In the launch, Huawei announced the official price of the Mate 30 mobile phone line in the range of 799 EUR to 1,099 EUR for the European region.
The price is arguably quite high, especially the Huawei Mate 30 series released without Google services installed on the device, such as Gmail or Google Play Store.
When releasing the cell phone line in China, the price pegged by Huawei turned out to be far lower, up to 40 percent cheaper than in Europe.
Mate 30 smartphones are valued at 555 USD in China, while Mate 30 Pro is sold starting at 822 USD.
Then, the Mate 30 Pro version of 5G in China is sold around 914USD, far different from the price in the Europe region which reaches around 1,266 USD.
The official version of the top, Mate 30 RS Porsche Design, is also at odds, which is equivalent to 1,758 USD in China, compared to around 2,307 USD in Europe.
And Mate 30 RS Porsche is sold at 1,823 USD compared to prices in Europe of 2,316 USD.
Analysts suspect that this price difference is Huawei’s strategy to boost sales.
Huawei indeed claims to have sold more than one million units of Mate 30 line in just one hour after opening the initial order. This might be one of the reasons why Huawei remains the top vendor in the Chinese smartphone market.
Mate 30 cellphone series is expected to sell more than 20 million units by the end of 2019.
Chinese consumers are relatively not too troubled by the absence of Google services because from the beginning it had been blocked there.
