P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro prices crash as Huawei achieves another milestone

Didn’t snap up a new smartphone for Black Friday? No problem. A number of UK retailers are still selling Huawei’s P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro for their lowest prices ever. In particular, Argos is listing the P30 Pro for a mere £649.95, that’s over £250 less than its launch price of £900. For that, you get a handset with a supremely diverse rear camera system, a gorgeous design and blisteringly fast performance.

The deal in question is for the P30 Pro in either its Breathing Crystal, Aurora or Black finishes.

• Huawei P30 Pro | Breathing Crystal | 128GB – £649.95 (was £899)

• Huawei P30 Pro | Aurora | 128GB – £649.95 (was £899)

• Huawei P30 Pro | Black | 128GB – £649.95 (was £899)

Need a bit more storage, or just want the P30 Pro’s dazzling Amber Sunrise finish? Argos has you covered there, too. The retailer has slashed the price of the 512GB handset to £899.95, down from £1,099.95.

• Huawei P30 Pro | Amber Sunrise | 512GB – £899.95 (was £1,099.95)

Argos is also discounting Huawei’s 2018 flagship – the Mate 20 Pro. Although the device recently celebrated its first birthday, it still boasts a number of premium features like a triple-camera system, 2K display and awesome battery life.

• Huawei Mate 20 Pro | Twilight | 128GB – £479.95

• Huawei Mate 20 Pro | Black | 128GB – £479.95

The discounts for the P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro come as Huawei has achieved another milestone. The Chinese tech firm has announced over one million devices have made the jump to its all-singing, all-dancing EMUI 10 operating system. Of course, that number excludes members of its Mate 30 series.

The P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro are surely to credit for much of that figure – both have received upgrades to EMUI 10 based on Android 10. The new software is most noticeable for its updated aesthetic that places the majority of native app content towards the middle and bottom of a phone display to allow for easier one-handed use.

Dark mode has also been souped-up in EMUI 10. The gloomy theme now works with more apps and Huawei has insisted developers should have an easier time conforming their third-party apps to it, too.

But by far the most welcome quality of life improvement introduced by EMUI 10 is a traditional app drawer. Yes that’s right, you’ll no longer need to have a dedicated app drawer button clogging up precious space on your home screen. Instead you can simply swipe up to see your organised drawer of programmes.

There’s also a ton of other new features in EMUI 10 that are worth shouting about, such as new permissions, updated notifications and more.
