We’re quite sure you’ve already got your credit card handy (as you’ve likely been making online purchases since a hair past midnight). But unfortunately Huawei doesn’t have any standalone special prices for handsets this year — only special discounts through service providers.
Key amongst them is one of our favourite devices of 2018, the Huawei P20 Pro. It has a superb camera and a massive battery that can last two days, and it’s currently our favourite non-phablet smartphone.
Sadly, though Huawei’s Black Friday deals include a number of different handsets, its most recent, the Mate 20 Pro, that launched last month is conspicuous in its absence. But the consolation prize is the Huawei Mate 20 Lite, which is pretty much a flagship in sheep’s clothing.
