The regular Huawei Mate 20 won't be widely available in Europe
Huawei Mate 20 render based on leaks
Huawei has already confirmed that it will be debuting the new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro on October 16 in London. But despite their European unveiling, it seems just one of the upcoming devices will be widely available across the continent.
According to tipster Roland Quandt, Huawei’s main focus will be the premium Mate 20 Pro rather than the regular model. Because of this, the Pro variant is expected to be available across most Europe and will presumably be the main subject of a big marketing campaign. But unfortunately, the regular model will not receive this same treatment.
Allegedly, the Huawei Mate 20 will be absent from most European markets and will instead be made available to purchase in just a handful of countries that presumably opt for cheaper offerings more often than not. These are expected to include Italy and Spain in the south of Europe, and Scandinavian countries such as Denmark, Finland, and Norway in the north.
This strategy of limiting the release of the cheaper variant could prove to be a big disappointment to certain fans of the company. However, it’s not the first time Huawei has done so. Last year, the Mate 10 was made available in just 15 international markets upon launch. The premium Mate 10 Pro, on the other hand, was initially sold in 24 countries before expanding to more.
