Huawei P30 Pro and P30 Lite will be available through eight online and brick-and-mortar (B&M) channels as of May 17, with suggested prices are 2,499 reais ($638) and 5,499 reais ($1,403) respectively.
These retailers include Magazine Luiza, Via Varejo, B2W, Fast Shop and wireless carrier Telefonica Brasil will be among those selling the phones.
“Our first priority is delivering this latest innovation to the Brazilian consumer as fast as we possibly can, but we are hiring people locally to manage the business here and establish what is necessary to ensure our success in Brazil,” Dunagan said.
At the time, she refused to give any specifics on the sales target estimate for P30 series in the country but added that the marketing efforts will be initially focused in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Brasilia.
