It is no secret that Huawei will not be allowed to do business in the US smartphone market because of seemingly endless trade conflict with China and suspicion of espionage. From then on, when the company unveiled its latest high-end appliances in Paris, we did not get our hopes.
But if the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro are certainly not marketed by major US carriers, a fairly known retailer around these parts already accepts pre-orders for unlocked configurations of both models. Before you get excited, it should be noted that these are explicitly listed as variants designed for use in Latin America. This means that they are technically imported to the United States just like the P20, P20 Pro, Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro units sold at reasonable prices on eBay.
On the positive side, B & H Photo Video guarantees the full 4G LTE support of these bad boys on GSM networks like AT & T and T-Mobile. The Verizon and Sprint CDMA technology is obviously not compatible, and the first users of P30 Pro did not provide any information regarding a US warranty. But surprise, surprise, the non-Pro version includes a 1-year limited warranty for the seller, which will no doubt be valid for the bigger and beefier phone.
The main selling point of the P30 Pro is undeniably the fact that the four camera configuration
All things considered, if you absolutely need to own a Huawei P30 or P30 Pro in the United States, it certainly is a more reliable option than shopping at eBay. Incredibly, the devices are not too expensive either, fetching $ 600 and $ 900 respectively.
At $ 900, the Huawei P30 Pro is directly compatible with an entry-level configuration for the 128GB Galaxy S10 (priced in the US), offering twice as much internal storage while optimizing photography zoom, fast charge and fingerprint scanning on the screen. departments. The 6.5-inch also comes with a beautiful OLED display and a discreet notch, as well as a powerful Kirin 980 processor, 8GB of RAM and a big battery of 4,200 mAh.
The Huawei P30 is certainly not an undesirable element in the photography department
Meanwhile, the Huawei P30 "ordinary", worth $ 600, is significantly lower than the Galaxy S10e at $ 750 and up, with "only" three cameras facing back on the bridge, 128GB of storage space, 8GB of RAM, Kirin 980 horsepower, a 6.1-inch OLED panel, the same sub-screen fingerprint sensor as his big brother and a respectable battery of 3 650 mAh. The P30 and P30 Pro models are both available in black, "crystal" and "aurora" paint from B & H, the old model to be marketed from April 29 and the latter vaguely appearing as "coming soon" at the time of this writing.
Do not wait too long because orders will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis and something tells us that initial supplies may be limited.
