I was just on the Telkom website and they have the Mate 20 pro for R399 where the P20 pro is 549!!! This is madness!!!!!! This is Sparta!!!

Also, do you really want to get a Huawei right now?

They seem to want to get rid of their huawei stocks with all the uncertainty surrounding the brand at the moment!
But yes, it is probably also because of the launch of newer units.

Mate 30 pro is coming but still doesn't justify such a price drop. Look at the comparison between the P30 and P20 for 799 and 549 each. It just doesn't add up. Either someone messed up with pricing or with orders and stocked the shit out of it or I have no idea 8 months from launch to slice the price 50%

It’s not actually a problem since Huawei are still getting support from Google via a legal loophole that even the tiny hand president has agreed is legal.

Trump is just waging war on the brand because he can and it’s one of the most common Chinese products in the USA, their cars aren’t exactly popular, so he’s throwing his opinion around to try get the American public behind him.

Given that Trump used hacking tactics to get info on Hillary during the elections, it’s hypocritical and currently unfounded as far as I know.

As for the sale of devices, expect massive price cuts as Huawei needs to sell an excess of phones that were destined for the American market but aren’t able to sell.

My main curiosity came from the fact that they haven't dropped the P20 P20 pro and the other close to a year devices as well from Huawei. Only the Mate 20.
