Coupled with the company’s new rainy season promo, now is the perfect time to get your hands on a Huawei phone.

The P30 Pro, P30, P30 Lite, Mate 20 Pro and the Y6 Pro 2019 are all in line for discounts with the markdown going as high as up to PHP 5,000. In particular, the P30 series receive significant discounts, making it more compelling to buy than ever before. Just in time for the rainy season, other Huawei smartphones have also been discounted.

Not convinced? Fear not as Huawei has shown strong commitment to its customers by opening new stores in the Philippines. Huawei has no plans of stopping in the country; as a matter of fact, they just recently launched the Y9 Prime as well as 5G in cooperation with Globe.

Furthermore, the Huawei P30 series and Mate 20 Pro offers the best bang for the buck with their stellar cameras and impressive performance. Meanwhile, the Y6 Pro 2019 is a smartphone that ticks all the right boxes for a decent smartphone without breaking the bank.

If you are finally convinced, head to your nearest Huawei experience stores and resellers to avail of the rainy season promo. You better hurry though — the promo is only available from June 21-July 31.
