After almost a month of its official announcement, Huawei has, at last, confirmed that it will start selling its Huawei P20 Pro in Australia via "local partners" from the 18 May, this year.
But the bad news is that there are no precise details yet about what the term local partners covers nor anything related to the basic P20 device. Checking out the previous history, Huawei's mobile phones have usually been available through Optus, Harvey Norman, Vodafone, and JB Hi-Fi, etc. Local pricing is still not 100% sure, and we will update you whenever we hear anything specific to that.
Huawei's announcement says that "the regional available P20 Pro will be certified to all applicable certifications and standards in Australia including, safety, warranty, software and radio frequency.
The statement comes only a few days after Ausdroid stated that Amaysim's online storefront had started selling the phone for a straight price of $975, "which is expected to be under the device recommended market price when it officially arrives."
As far as specifications are concerned, both the P20 and P20 Pro flagship devices run on Huawei's Kirin 970 processor chip. The 5.8’’ P20 includes 4GB of RAM while on the other side, the 6.1’’ bigger Pro version comes with extended 6GB of RAM. The Huawei P20 Pro also comprises of a larger 4000mAh battery than the regular P20's 3400mAh capacity battery.
And the most prominent point here is related to P20 Pro’s high-end camera technology. The feature-packed smartphone device comes loaded with a high quality, ultra-advanced, and solid dual-lens camera. P20 Pro mobile phone featuring the world's first triple lens camera. Particularly, it commands a Leica-developed camera configuration consisted of a 40 mega-pixels RGB sensor, a 20 mega-pixels monochrome sensor and an 8 mega-pixels sensor with the telephoto lens. Responding to this, the manufacturer says the P20 Pro smartphone’s super sensitive image sensor shoots low light images with up to ISO 102400.
If you are curious to know Huawei P20 Pro price in Australia, still there is no confirmation about that though, but we can assume that the prices will be in between AU$1000 to AU$1200 while checking out its international prices.
Some direct retailers are already providing international versions of the Huawei P20 Pro at a cheap and discount price tag. If you want to grab a Huawei P20 Pro device as soon as possible, eGlobal and DWI Digital are the two major retailers currently offering P20 Pro for AU$1100 outright.
When it comes to colors availability in Australia, Huawei P20 pro in Australia will only be available in Twilight and midnight Black coloring options. This may not a good news for Huawei lovers around Australia, as flagship device is widely available in four sensational colors internationally.
Another bad news is that there is no confirmation on whether the Huawei P20 is coming in Australia, nor about P20’s color options.
