Huawei P20, P20 Pro, P20 Lite: Prices and availability in the Philippines

More affordable than in most regions

Published

on

Nearly a month after the international launch and two weeks after the release in Singapore, Huawei’s newest lineup of smartphones is finally coming to the Philippines.

The flagship P20 Pro and P20, along with the midrange P20 Lite, will be available beginning April 28.

Being the best of the lineup (and possibly best of all Android handsets at the moment), the P20 Pro will cost you the most. It’ll retail for PhP 44,990 which converts to about EUR 695 — way below the European launch price of EUR 899. The color options are Black, Midnight Blue, and Twilight Purple.

And then we have the P20, which retails for only PhP 34,990 or around EUR 540. This is, again, much cheaper than the EUR 649 price tag in Europe. For now, it’ll come in Black and Midnight Blue — no sign yet of a local Pink Gold release.

Finally, the P20 Lite will arrive with a price of PhP 15,990. This is only slightly higher than what the Nova 2i (viewed as Huawei’s staple midrange offering since last year) was retailing for. You can purchase one in either Klein Blue or Black.

Pre-orders are also being accepted for the P20 Pro and P20 from April 21 to 27. Do so, and you’ll receive a Canon photo printer for free. And if you buy the P20 Lite during the April 28 launch day, you’ll get a free Huawei accessory for its cameras.

Huawei Y6 2018: Price and availability in the Philippines

Huawei’s newest budget-friendly phone!

Published

Huawei’s latest entry-level smartphone, the Y6 2018, has landed in the Philippines with its official price and availability.

Beginning April 28, you can purchase the handset for only PhP 5,990. This formally makes the Y6 2018 Huawei’s most affordable release in the Philippine market this year.

But despite being a budget-friendly offering, it comes with a decent set of hardware and features.

The best bit is the 5.7-inch 18:9 720p display. It’s backed by a Snapdragon 425 processor and 2GB of memory, along with 16GB of expandable storage, and a 3000mAh battery keeps the device alive. The camera setup is simple: a 13-megapixel camera on the back, and 5-megapixel shooter in front.

There’s no fingerprint sensor on either side, but face unlock is built in for faster logins. The feature-rich Android 8.0 Oreo with Huawei’s EMUI 8.0 interface is also on board.

It’ll be available in both blue and black.

ASUS ZenFone 5, 5Z, and 5Q officially launch in the Philippines

Pricing and availability here!

Published

ASUS first announced their newest line of AI-powered smartphones at MWC in Barcelona, and now, they’re coming to Philippine shores. All three variants, the ZenFone 5, ZenFone 5Z, and ZenFone 5Q (or depending on what region you’re in, the ZenFone 5 Lite or ZenFone 5 Selfie) will be on sale.

The ZenFone 5 sports a 6.2-inch notched display with a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 636 processor with AI built in and runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with ZenUI 5.0 out of the box. It has a dual-cam setup on the rear with a 12-megapixel primary shooter and a secondary wide-angle shooter. These cameras are, of course, powered by AI. There’s also an 8-megapixel selfie shooter up front. 

The more premium ZenFone 5Z, on the other hand, is powered by the latest Snapdragon 845 processor which makes it a more capable device. All other specifications, including design, remain the same. They come in two colors: Midnight Blue and Meteor Silver.

Finally, the ZenFone 5Q is a quad-camera handset powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. This device, though, isn’t notched. ASUS claims that this device is “the world’s first globally announced true quad-camera system” as it makes use of all four cameras independently, unlike other smartphones which only utilize secondary shooters for the bokeh effect.

Up front, it’s equipped with a 20-megapixel selfie shooter and a secondary wide-angle camera. On the back, it sports a 16-megapixel camera, also with a secondary wide-angle lens. The 5Q also runs on ZenUI 5.0 and Android Oreo out of the box. Color options include: Moonlight White, Midnight Black, and Rouge Red.

The ZenFone 5 is priced at PhP 19,995 while the more premium ZenFone 5Z will retail for PhP 29,995. The ZenFone 5Q will cost PhP 16,995. The ZenFone 5 and 5Q are in stores starting today and the ZenFone 5Z will be available come July.

The ZenFone Max M1, which is powered by an amazing 4000mAh battery, also launched in the country alongside the ZenFone 5 line. It will retail for PhP 8,995.
