If you’re looking to upgrade to a high-end smart TV with a 4K display, video calling capabilities, and a high 120Hz refresh rate, Huawei Philippines has an offer that you might have a hard time refusing.
The company made the Huawei Vision S smart TV series available through the Globe beyond the mobile plan, which makes it first TV in the local market to be sold through a postpaid program. Interested customers can purchase the 55-inch Huawei Vision S with the Globe Plan Bundle 2499, which includes a Huawei MatePad T10 tablet and 3 GB of monthly GoWiFi access, among others.
There is no upfront charge for the 55in model, but you’ll need to make an upfront payment of P 30,000 (around $ 599 converted) with the same plan for the 65in Huawei Vision S. Until September 30, customers can also claim limited-offer giveaways, including a wireless microphone valued at P 2,999 ($ 60) and a Smart TV box valued at P 3,999 ($ 80 ).
