Just a few months after its launch, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro can now be had at a much lower price exclusively for the month of March. Plus, buyers are also getting a free item for every purchase of the flagship.

Now at SG$ 1,398, the Mate 40 Pro is a tempting flagship to get, offering the best features for the money. It comes with a leading-class processor — Kirin 9000 — which offers blazing-fast performance and 5G connectivity. It also has the signature curved AMOLED display that reaches up to 6.76 inches and a 90Hz refresh rate for an unmatched viewing experience.

Of course, the Mate 40 Pro packs in smart features that tie into the Huawei ecosystem. The Huawei Share, for example, enables effortless multi-screen collaboration between the device and a Huawei laptop.

Yet its best feature yet is its versatile camera setup that rivals the best of the best. On the rear is a 50MP wide-angle lens paired with a 12MP telephoto and 20MP ultra-wide-angle lens. Those cameras offer excellent snaps whatever the situation. As a bonus, the telephoto lens captures detailed shots even at 50x zoom.

Free ring light for every purchase

While it has arguably the best cameras in its class, other factors such as lighting affect the overall shots. To help with this, Huawei is giving away a free ring light case for every purchase of the Mate 40 Pro. Worth SG$ 98, it helps users achieve that perfect-looking shots every time.

The Mate 40 Pro can be purchased on all Huawei Experience Stores, consumer electronic stores, and official stores on Lazada and Shopee. The free ring light case is available while stocks last, though.
