Finally! South Africans have only been able to buy the latest budget device in the P40 lineup (in the shape of the Huawei P40 Lite). Today Huawei is making the P40 Pro flagship as well as the P40 available to purchase in South Africa. And in an unprecedented move, if you buy one from Huawei’s online store now, you’ll get a P40 Lite free with your P40 Pro or P40 purchase.
Both the P40 Pro and P40 comes 5G ready, which makes them the first 5G devices commercially available in South Africa that you’ll be able to get on contract and for cash. Remember that Huawei smartphones don’t come with Google services, and are equipped with HMS — Huawei’s own mobile system. Luckily, we have a guide on setting up your P40 device using some cool hacks.
The Huawei P40 Pro is priced at R21,000 and the P40 retails at just R17,000. They are available to order now, and you’ll get a free Huawei P40 Lite with it. We don’t know how long this special will last, so we’re recommending you jump on this quickly.
The Huawei website seems under strain, and you may have a problem accessing it. Obvs everyone wants to get to that special offer.
