P30 Pro prices finally drop as Huawei reveals some hugely significant news

The Huawei P30 Pro was launched in March and is certainly a device that has pushed the smartphone boundaries.

This flagship packs a market-leading quadruple rear camera, huge 4,200mAh battery and fully edge-to-edge 6.47-inch display which hides a fingerprint under its glass.

Owners will also be treated to reverse wireless charging and Huawei’s fast Kirin 980 processor.

When the P30 Pro arrived in stores it would have you set you back £899 but a new deal has now dropped that cost.

Debenhams Plus is currently stocking the P30 Pro in Midnight Black for £830 which saves £69.


And that’s not the only deal as Mobiles.co.uk has also recently cut the price of the P30 Pro on contract.

This means Huawei fans can now pop this flagship in their pocket for just £26 per month.


The deal includes 5GB of data plus unlimited calls and texts with the total price, including a £199 upfront fee, costing £823 over two years.

These are clearly good deals and now there’s some more positive news for those thinking of owning a Huawei device.

Over the past few weeks, Huawei been under the spotlight after a blacklist was announced which stops US companies, including Google, dealing with the Chinese firm.

This block has raised concerns that current phones would no longer get access to the Android operating system and future update.

However, Huawei has now responded to the block in a bid to allay concerns.

In a post on its website, Huawei said: “All Huawei smartphones and tablets will continue to receive security patches and Android updates.

“Anyone who has already bought, or is about to buy a Huawei smartphone, can continue to access the world of apps as they have always done.

“All devices continue to be covered by our manufacturer’s warranty and will receive full service support accordingly.

“Our most popular current devices, including the P30 series, will be able to access Android Q. In fact, we have already launched a beta developer programme for Android Q which is running right now on our Mate 20 Pro device.”

This is hugely significant news as it should future-proof devices including the P30 Pro.

Although fans will be relieved to hear this update there is still one thing to remember before buying the P30 Pro.

With all of the worries surrounding Huawei, trade-in prices for devices have plummeted in recent weeks.

On sites such as Music Magpie, the P20 Pro is now worth just £50 and the Mate 20 Pro will only get you £75.

Things aren’t much better for those wanting to hand over their new P30 Pros with this phone currently worth just £100 – that’s £799 less than its standard retail price.

If you’re happy to keep your phone for a few years this won’t be a concern but if you think you might want to swap or sell it within a year it’s worth considering before you order.
