Huawei opened registrations for the Mate 30 5G and Mate 30 Pro 5G ten days ago, but just today it started shipping and selling the smartphones. According to the company, the combined available stock of 100,000 units was sold out in just one minute.
The next flash sale is scheduled for November 5 when a few lucky winners will get free Huawei Watch GT2, a new Mediapad M6 or FreeBuds 3 as a complement to the smartphone.
