The P20 Pro was possibly one of the very best phones of 2018.
This flagship device brought with it a swathe of extras including a triple rear camera, massive battery and a fingerprint scanner which returned to the front of the phone.
With so many features the P20 Pro was tough not to recommend but in recent months it’s faced some tough times.
Firstly, it was overshadowed by the new P30 Pro which raised the bar to a new level and then came the shock news of a possible Google ban.
This block was announced after the Chinese firm was blacklisted by the US government meaning American firms could face being stopped from working with the smartphone maker.
This news sent P20 Pro resale values into meltdown with the device worth just £50 on some trade-in sites.
However, there could now be some better news on the horizon for owners of the P20 Pro with prices starting to rise again for anyone wanting to sell their phone.
Some sites are now offering over £150 which is a much-improved offer than before.
Even Musicmagpie, which was one of the services offering just £50 for the phone, has now upped this to £75 showing the trend is rising.
Along with getting more cash for your phone, the Google issues have been put on hold for another few months with Wilbur Ross, the US Commerce Secretary, announcing that Huawei would be granted another 90-day extension.
That news should help Huawei push out it’s Android Q update to more devices including the P20 Pro.
In a post on its website, Huawei confirmed: “We are confident that our most popular devices, including the P30 series, will be able to access Android Q.
“We have been working with third parties for many months to ensure devices will be able to receive Android Q updates.
“Technical preparations and testing has already begun for over 17 devices.
“In fact our Mate 20 Pro has already been given approval to receive Android Q as and when it is released by Google.
Here is the list of the products we have submitted to upgrade to Android Q
P30 Pro • P30 • Mate 20 • Mate 20 Pro8 • PORSCHE DESIGN Mate 20 RS • P30 lite • P smart 2019 • P smart+ 2019 • P smart Z • Mate 20 X • Mate 20 X (5G) • P20 Pro • P20 • Mate 10 Pro • PORSCHE DESIGN Mate 10 • Mate 10 • Mate 20 lite.
Finally, there’s more good news with Huawei now unleashing some very enticing P20 Pro, Mate 20 Pro and P30 Pro deals on to the market.
The Chinese firm has begun offering up to £100 cashback to anyone who buys one of these devices.
Along with the flagship P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro, there’s also money back for those buying a P30, P30 Lite.
For the cash to be paid you’ll need you will need to provide the date of purchase, receipt number, IMEI Number and some personal details including your bank account.
This offer means you can currently pick up a P30 Pro for £799 (after £100 reduction) a Mate 20 Pro for £499 (after £100 cashback) or a P20 Pro £439 (after £60 cashback).
