Huawei becomes the first company to officially release a 5G smartphone in the Philippines with the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G!

It’s now available on Lazada Philippines while Huawei concept stores and kiosks will start selling the device on February 8, 2020. There are different freebies in each store which we’ll talk about at the end of the article.

As its name suggests, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G can connect to Globe and Smart’s 5G networks. This is currently limited to a few areas in Clark and Makati but the wider roll-out of the technology should start this year.

The device is powered by the Kirin 990 5G chipset which is slightly faster than the Kirin 990 chipset of the regular Huawei Mate 30 Pro smartphones.Aside from that, it shares virtually the same features such as the quad cameras, curved screen, and battery.

Its quad cameras are composed of a 40MP main camera, 40MP ultra-wide camera, 8MP telephoto 5x zoom camera and a 3D TOF camera. Meanwhile, it also has a 32MP selfie camera paired with a 3D TOF camera.


How about Google Apps?

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G still won’t come with Google Apps pre-installed. Most of the top apps in the Philippines can now be downloaded using the Huawei AppGallery which comes with the device out of the box.

A helpful guide is also published on the company’s website to guide users in installing apps using Phone Clone and other app stores.
