Huawei P20 and P20 Pro: Price, availability, and release date (Updated)
The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro were unveiled in Paris at the end of March following months of rumors. The successors to 2017’s Huawei P10 lineup bring unique, all-new designs, 18.7:9 aspect ratio displays, powerful Kirin 970 chipsets, and either 4 or 6GB of RAM. The P20 Pro even has three rear-facing cameras. Yeah, these phones are hot.
But where can you buy the P20 and P20 Pro? And how much do they cost? Find all you need to know below.

Huawei P20 and P20 Pro price
The Huawei P20 price is £599 (649 euro) for 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the Huawei P20 Pro price is considerably higher at £799 (899 euro) — but that gets you 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. For reference, the P10 retailed for 649 euro when it launched in February 2017, while the Plus model went for 799 euro.
Huawei also announced a device called the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS, continuing the phone company’s partnership with the luxury brand. This high-end phone will cost 1,695 euro for the model with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, while the 6GB/512GB model will go for a whopping 2,095 euro.
Huawei P20 and P20 Pro release date and availability
The Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro were released on Friday, April 6 in the UK and other territories while the Porsche Design Mate RS won’t be available until Thursday, April 12. Huawei isn’t giving away many exact details for the latter yet, but it did say the device would be available “globally.”
The P20 lineup isn’t coming to the United States, and that shouldn’t be much of a surprise — the P10 lineup didn’t either, and Huawei has had multiple failed attempts to bring its phones to the U.S. We can speculate, however, that the P20 and P20 Pro could go on sale in multiple regions in Europe, the U.K., Australia, Africa, China, and more. We will update this section as we learn more about Huawei’s plans.
Huawei P20 and P20 Pro deals UK
EE has possibly the best P20 Pro deal going right now as you can apparently pick it up for £509 instead of £799. To take advantage of this, you’ll need to visit a brick-and-mortar EE store and take out the device on PAYG (£499 for the handset plus a £10 minimum top-up).
This may not be available in all areas, and we’ve no idea how long it will last (the information is based on the user comments on the HotDealsUK), so best call ahead if you’re thinking of taking a trip to a store.
If you live in the U.K. you can buy the P20 or P20 Pro at a number of major retailers. At Carphone Warehouse, you’ll find the devices in Blue and Black SIM-free for their £599 and £799 respective prices.

O2 UK has the Huawei devices on contract starting at £46.00 per month and £9.99 upfront for the P20 and £52.00 per month with £9.99 upfront for the P20 Pro. The handsets come in black and O2 is also offering £100 flight gift cards with purchases until May 9 (find more details at the links below).
