Huawei’s latest P-series smartphones will be available for purchase in the South African market as of 1 June, the company announced via a livestream on Friday afternoon.

This comes exactly two months after the Chinese technology giant unveiled its high-end smartphones via an online global launch as well. At the global launch, Huawei introduced three new devices – the P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro+.

In SA, the company has unveiled the P40 Pro and P40, which will be available from all mobile operators and its online store.

The smartphone maker also welcomed some local celebrities as new P40 series ambassadors. They include rapper Nasty C, TV personality Thando Thabethe, actor and entrepreneur Nay Maps, former Miss South Africa Tamryn Green and fashion designer David Tlale.

Huawei says its P40 series represents its vision of the future of mobile imaging technology.

“It is a comprehensive upgrade from the previous generation, embodying all conceptual innovations realised by Huawei. The Huawei P40 Series is equipped with Huawei’s most sophisticated camera system to date, capable of producing breath-taking imagery with a lightweight chassis.

“These devices are testament to the fact that Huawei is unafraid to break the rules and to exceed expectations, and it does all of that in style.”

The Huawei P40 Pro will retail for R20 999, while the P40 will retail for R16 999.
