Thanks to its striking design and triple rear camera setup, the Huawei P20 Pro is easily one of the most unique Android phones to be released so far in 2018.
You can buy the phone in both the United States and Canada, but since Huawei isn't officially selling it in the U.S., doing so there is a bit trickier than in Canada.
In any case, here's how you can get your hands on the phones in the respective countries.
Amazon (Quality Deals Shopping Center)
First on our list, Amazon seller Quality Deals Shopping Center has the P20 Pro listed on the mega-popular shopping site for $842.40. At the time of publishing this article, Quality Deals Shopping Center has a 96% positive rating in the last 12 months with 215 reviews.
That $842.40 price gets you the Midnight Blue color, but if you want to step up to the Twilight or Black options, you'll spend $874.89 and $939.00, respectively,
There's a 30-day return policy upon the arrival of the phone, but it's noted that a 20% restocking fee may apply.

eBay (never-msrp and sobeonline1)
Our friends at Android Police spotted a couple sellers on eBay that are currently running pre-orders for the phone, and for folks that are dead set on using it State-side, this is your best bet for picking it up.
Both sellers have very positive ratings (99.0% for never-msrp and 98.8% for sobeonline1) with never-msrp selling it for $789.99 and sobeoline1 charging $849.99. That's not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but it's also not terrible considering that the phone isn't officially being sold here in the country.
No matter which seller you choose, free shipping is offered.
You'll find 30-day return periods for both sellers, but the way these are handled is slightly different. You'll pay for return shipping no matter which one you choose, but sobeonline1 does note that a 15% restocking fee may apply.
Another eBay seller we recently spotted in jtbcglobal. Jtbcglobal has the P20 Pro going for $879.99, making it one of the most expensive of the bunch.
This is a factory unlocked version of the P20 Pro and comes wiht a 24-month warranty from Huawei. The phone's in new condition, shipping is free, and you've got 30 days to return it for your money back or exchange it for a different item.
As for jtbcglobal's seller rating, they're currently sitting at 92.6% with 693 reviews.

Rogers & Fido
In Canada, Rogers in selling not only the P20 Pro, but the P20 and P20 Lite, too.
Looking specifically at the P20 Pro, the phone costs the following with the carrier's various plans:
- $249 with the two-year Premium+ Tab
- $449 with the two-year Premium Tab
- $599 with the two-year Smart Tab
- $999 with the two-year Talk & Text plan or outright with no plan/tab
If you purchase the P20 or P20 Pro, Rogers has an exclusive offer that'll let you grab a free Huawei MediaPad T3 tablet when you activate the phone on select two-year plans.
If you're buying the P20 Pro at Fido, pricing looks like this:
- $0 down on a two-year Extra Large plan
- $199 down on a two-year Large plan
- $359 down on a two-year Medium plan
- $479 down on a two-year Small plan
- $740 when buying without a plan
Similar to Rogers, Fido is also selling the P20 and P20 Lite.
Telus & Koodo
For Telus customers, you can grab the Huawei P20 Pro for as little as $250 down depending on the plan you choose. If you prefer buying the phone outright, it'll cost you $980.
Telus is also selling the regular P20, but unlike Roers and Fido, you won't find the P20 Lite here.

Moving over to Koodo, you'll also find the P20 and P20 Pro with the P20 Lite being absent once more.
For Koodo's pricing, you're looking at the following:
- $450 with Tab Large plan + $20/month for 24 months
- $ 620 with Tab Medium plan + $15/month for 24 months
- $740 with Tab Small plan + $10/month for 24 months
- $980 without any monthly plan
Last but not least, Bell's selling the P20 Pro, too.
Buying the phone with a 2-year plan w/ at least 1GB of data and $80/month charge per user will let you grab it for just $249. Those same requirements with a $70/month charge per user kicks things up to $449, and buying the P20 Pro without any contract will set you back $1049.
Updated June, 2018: Added new sellers for both the U.S. and Canada that are now carrying the P20 Pro!
No WiFi calling for the us :(
I wouldn’t be able to make or take calls inside my condo
So basically, nowhere. Losing Best Buy as an Authorized Dealer was a big hit for their US market. Good to see a return policy but is there any MFR warranty considering this is the international version? I didn't see anything. That' be my biggest concern spending $900 for an international phone.
You get no warranty on any imported models. You have to buy knowing that there is no warranty and you are on your own.
Well if you have to import, no warranty = no buy, it's that simple. The no best buy deal really killed it let alone AT'T & Verizon. When a phone like the s9+ is handled by all carrier's it's a definite advantage!
I wonder if this is why Google severed ties with Huawei, all this US Government business? Great phone, using my Pixel, but if wasn't on Fi this would be on my shortlist for sure.
And, of course, no warranty. Not the brightest way of connecting.
Does the international warranty excluded the US?
....the device is not being sold in the US. There is no US warranty
This beautiful piece of hardware deserves better.
I'm sure they will do just fine like they always have w/o the US market. But I agree, this probably the best looking phone of 2018 IMHO
The United States is a beautiful country and deserves better than that orange shitgibbon they have has supreme ruler.
Just remember that the P series phones have never been officially sold in the US (except for the occasional "Lite" model). Having to buy it from an importer on eBay doesn't really have anything to do with the recent issues Huawei is having in the US, as you've always had to buy a P series phone that way. On a side note I I thought the P20 Pro was going to be more expensive considering its price tag in Europe.
$883 is crazy cheap. That's only £623 when the cheapest we can buy it in the UK is £799 ($1123)
Does that price include tax?
In Malaysia the official price is 850 USD net. Most shops have sold out the pro model during the launched weekend.
In Mexico, the official price is 870 USD and if you buy it during the first days they are including a P20 lite for free so not bad at all. The Pro model seems to be a hit or they didn't have enough pieces as most of the shops have it sold out.
Will this phone work on Verizon?
Nope, will definitely not work for Verizon or Sprint, it will work for GSM carriers AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS and Cricket as far as i know.
Well, we got the P10 in Canada. Hopefully the P20 pro follows.
I just ordered two of these phones, one for me and one for my girlfriend, I have AT&T so the phone will work perfectly, my girlfriend has MetroPCS which runs off T-Mobile towers, it will also work but the Huawei P20 Pro are missing two LTE bands that T-Mobile use but luckily they're not the main LTE bands. So i shouldn't have anything to worry about, I'm currently using the Essential Phone, which has been a data connection nightmare.
Good luck with the phones, let us know your impressions with the phone overall once you get it.
I just looked at the specs for the one being released in Canada, it has all the tmobile bands 2,4,12
He may be talking about bands 66 and 71.
Since this is not a North American version of this phone, will it suffer from the overly aggressive battery optimization issues that wreak havoc on Huawei notifications?
It's more customizable now.
Fwiw, I picked up an open box Mate 10 Pro, the data works great on Verizon... But no calling or texting even with Google voice. I have not ported the number over. I'm planning to pick this up and dual SIM Verizon and TMobile since my Verizon plan is cheap. Hoping to test the mate 10 pro before my return is up.
while reading it. I got a p20 ad :D
😁😁😁 congs Huawei cares
And in the UK?
Or the other 191 countries that are not American?
I can vouch for never-msrp. I've bought two phones from them and they worked well! (an LG V20 & Galaxy S9+ Exynos)
I follow them on eBay. How's the battery life on your S9+? I'm thinking about getting one from them to use here in NYC once I sell the V30 I've got.
Honest, I wasn't too happy with the battery life compared to my Pixel 2 XL. I ended up selling it to a friend who needed dual sim capability.
So you can now pre-order the P20 Pro on Rogers/Fido in Canada for $999cdn, about $777usd as of today, but only the Black one is available. :(
To no avail. This phone simply can't be bought if you're in the US. Buying something with no warranty that you can't return or possibly get fixed is not worth it.
Warranty is not an issue for me. Living in Detroit, I can just go back south across the border to Windsor . . . :)
How about North to Windsor...and South to home with you new gadget!
Windsor is the one spot in Canada that is actually SOUTH of the Detroit border . . . so I would return NORTH with my P20 Pro (in Twilight or Midnight Blue, preferably ;)
Does anyone know if WiFi Calling will work with it on T-Mobile USA?
I bought a P20 Pro from never msrp a couple of weeks ago for 799.99 works great on att. plus they will sell you a extended warranty covers drops and things like that I don’t
keep phones long enough to worry about that though
Telus/Koodo are offering The P20 Pro for $980, and the P20 for $720. Both include 2 years of Amazon Prime for free.
Only black for telus. DAMN.
On my way this morning to pick up a black 20 pro. I will have it in a case so color really does not matter.
