Huawei Mate 40 Pro to come with a free iPhone 12 in China

A retailer in China is bundling the Huawei Mate 40 Pro with a free iPhone 12 as a gift.

Huihuibao, a Chinese online store, is offering the unusual promo for its November 26 sale of a special batch of Huawei Mate Mate 40 Pro 8GB + 128GB. The first few customers who orders the smartphone (and manages to activate the published coupons from the online store) will get a free 64GB iPhone 12.

The online store is going to sell the Mate 40 Pro 8GB + 128GB for USD 990. The iPhone 12 64GB, on the other hand, is priced at USD 799.

In China, there is a shortage of Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro+ as Huawei have difficulties keeping up with demand, likely due to a limited supply of its Kirin 9000 chips.

We all know what’s going on with Huawei since the trade ban. Recently, the company sold its Honor sub-brand in an effort to raise funds to keep the company afloat and to “save Honor’s industry chain”.
