The Kirin 990 5G-powered device supporting the UAE’s local 5G network infrastructure ahead of a January 23 launch at retailers in the region, 9to5Google reported on Thursday.

It is being said that the smartphone, which comes sans Google and its Play services, will fit in pretty well in the region.

Huawei has already opened a Notify Me option on their official website in the region, that should prompt prospective buyers ahead of the official pre-order start date.

Fans will be able to head into selected stores on the January 23 launch to experience the device for themselves. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G will be available in two colour options: Orange and Emerald Green priced at 3899 AED or roughy $1061, the report added.
