Huawei Mate 30 Malaysian pre-order open—but only if you have a referral code

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro is here in Malaysia, and customers who ordered the flagship smartphone under the Exclusive Ownership Program are set to receive their devices from the 25th of October onwards. Huawei is now opening up a referral program for new customers to pre-order the Huawei Mate 30 series from the 26th of October till the 7th of November. Collection for the smartphones will be available from the 11th of November till the 11th of December.

In a statement by Bill Liu, Country Director of Huawei Malaysia, customers can pre-order any Mate 30 series smartphone with a referral code from an owner of the Mate 30 Pro (from the Exclusive Ownership Program). According to Liu, this is part of Huawei’s plan for consumers to “connect with owners to understand the device”.

That’s largely because the Mate 30 series is Huawei’s first flagship device to come with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS)—the alternative to Google Mobile Services. That’s received its fair share of skepticism, so Huawei’s initial ownership program was targeted towards users who have owned two Huawei Mate devices in the past.

But if you don’t know anyone who’s pre-ordered a Mate 30 Pro to refer you, that’s not an issue, apparently. The Country Director also has his personal referral code (33995) available from the 26th–27th of October, which essentially opens up the availability of the Mate 30 series to everyone for a limited time—not just those that know pre-order customers.

Of course, you might have noticed that 5 pre-order referrals will land customers a free Huawei Watch GT. Liu says that his referral gift will be used in a future campaign as a gift to their customers. In addition to that, Huawei has also set up a dedicated hotline for owners (1800-22-0086), as well as a WhatsApp contact that owners will receive upon collection of their devices.

Customers who pre-order the Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro under the referral program will also be entitled to a Huawei SuperCharge Wireless Car Charger, Huawei PU Back Casing, and Huawei Care (1 year Extended warranty + 6 Month Screen Crack Protection).
