Huawei overtook Apple to become the world’s second-largest smartphone distributor behind Samsung in 2018, making the Chinese brand the first in seven years to split the top two. Today, Huawei announced two new phones for the P30 series: Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro, which are both set to be released on April 5, 2019. Preorder deals on the new phones have also begun and if you’re interested in owning them, I have rounded up all the best SIM-Free and contract deals you can get right now, plus everything else you need to know such as pricing, technical specifications and new accessories from Huawei.  

The new smartphones from the Huawei P30 series are set to be released on April 5, 2019

Pricing and Preorder Deal

The Huawei P30 model price starts at £699.00 and the Huawei P30 Pro model price starts at £899.00.

Of course, it’s now customary for every new smartphone to come with a freebie and Huawei are offering a great one. The Samsung Galaxy S10 that was released earlier this month came with a pair of free pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds (wireless earbuds) which cost £139. Huawei has taken it one step further and is giving everyone who pre-orders the phones before the release date (April 5) a free Sonos One speaker worth £199.
