Sales of the new flagships Huawei Mate 50 started today in China. They have been waiting for two years, and this could not but affect the demand: absolutely all versions are sold out.
The Mate 50 RS Porsche Design sold out the fastest, which is understandable: this option has always been offered in limited quantities, and the current generation is no exception to this rule. The second most popular was the Mate 50 Pro. The lowest demand for the base model Mate 50, but it eventually sold out. And in general, the entire line sold out in a matter of minutes. Interestingly, according to insiders, the volume of the first batch of Mate 50 was 4 million pieces. If so, then the Mate 50 is in great demand.
It is not surprising that prices are rising against this background, but everything also depends on the model: for example, the base Mate 50 added $ 140 (at a cost of $ 710), but for the version with Kunlun glass they are already asking for $ 280 more. The premium for the Mate 50 RS Porsche Design goes up to $1,150, more than half the cost of the smartphone itself. Prices, of course, inflated resellers.
