Fancy a Huawei Mate 30 or Mate 30 Pro? Well, it looks like you will need to join the back of the queue, as the Chinese company is running an invite-only sale for both devices. You can register your interest now, although this does not guarantee entry into the "exclusive group" that will be offered to purchase a device.

The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro may have already arrived in Europe courtesy of one retailer, but a wider release still seems unlikely. However, Huawei has now taken the strange step in only allowing people to purchase a Mate 30 series device by invitation. Suitably, there are some caveats.

Firstly, the Chinese company is only offering 4G variants of its handsets. You cannot choose which SKU you would like either, with the registration form only giving the option of your preference between Black and Space Silver. You must also disclose what other smartphone brands you use and agree for your data to be "collected and processed by Huawei in this registration for the purpose of promotion of Mate 30 Series".

Finally, the registration process implies that this invitation sale is only open to those living in the Philippines. While the form gives you the choice of living in Cebu, Davao or Manila, we successfully registered by inputting London. You can register your interest here.
