Choosing your phone’s storage is important because it is very difficult, rather impossible to upgrade it at a later stage. The best thing you can do is to add a microSD card, assuming that your phone supports it in the first place.
However, Huawei has come up with something quite interesting. Alongside the new Huawei P50 series, the company also revealed that they will give users the option to upgrade the storage of their old phones.
The first wave of devices that are eligible for this upgrade are the Mate 9, Mate 10, Mate 20, Mate 30, P10, P20, and P30 series. The program will double the storage of your device. This means that 64 GB phones will become 128 GB, 128 GB will become 256 GB and 256 GB will become 512 GB.
The company will be charging about $57 for the upgrade, which is honestly not too bad. The idea behind this is so that when Huawei releases its own HarmonyOS, people do not have to format and delete files from their devices to make space for it.
This is the first time any smartphone manufacturer is offering an internal storage upgrade. It is still unclear to know how Huawei will be doing this, and the offer seems to be exclusive to China at the moment.
