But wait. That’s only half the story. Converted, 369 Euros would be 450usd or 23.5K PHP. Too expensive? We think so too. But hear us out.
A few days ago, we analyzed the pricing of Huawei phones in general and found out that the Euro Pricing versus the US Pricing does not follow a direct conversion but rather a direct currency switch.
(Read it here.)
For example, the P20 and P20 Pro were announced to be 699 Euros and 869 Euros and the direct US price will be 699 USD and 869 USD.
This means that the P20 Lite US SRP will be 369 USD. Ultimately, this translates to PHP19,995 which makes all the more sense.
What do you think? Does 19,995 justify the P20 Lite specifications as follows?
