Huawei on Monday announced the Mate 10 Pro is now available to preorder in the U.S., with shipments set to begin on February 18. You can get one unlocked through Amazon, Best Buy, Microsoft, Newegg, and B&H.
The Mate 10 Pro features a 6-inch OLED display, 4GB of RAM, an octa-core processor, 4,000mAh battery, Android 8.0 Oreo, and up to 128GB of storage. Additionally, the device features a dual-camera setup, with one 20-megapixel color sensor and another 12-megapixel monochrome sensor.
“Huawei prides itself in delivering premium, high-performing devices that are elegant, secure and user-friendly, and the award-winning Huawei Mate 10 Pro embodies all those characteristics and more,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei.
Notably, the device isn’t available through any carrier partners. That’s because AT&T and Verizon, both of which were set to sell the award-winning device, pulled out of deals to offer the Mate 10 Pro following U.S. government pressure. That’s a big blow to the company’s ambitions to expand into the U.S., especially with Samsung gearing to launch the Galaxy S9.
Depending on which storage option you choose, the Mate 10 Pro will cost $799. The good news is between now and February 17, customers will get a $150 gift card from the retailer in which it was purchased. That’s a nice way to garner interest from people unfamiliar with the brand.
In addition to the regular Mate 10 Pro, Huawei will also offer a Porsche Design Mate 10, which will be available starting February 18 through the same retailers mentioned above. That device will cost $1,255.
