Mate 10 Pro already sees price drop in the U.S.

by Justin Herrick | March 20, 2018

The best price yet on the Mate 10 Pro is waiting for you. Huawei’s latest flagship was released in the U.S. last month, but it’s already seeing a major discount hit the price.

Amazon and Best Buy are selling the phone for $700, which is $100 off the list price normally set by these retailers. The discount applies to both the Midnight Blue and Titanium Gray colors that have 128GB of storage.

Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro looked like it would make a grand entrance into the U.S., but the government advised multiple carriers to avoid the Chinese company. It’s believed by some lawmakers that Huawei has been spying on behalf of the Chinese government; therefore, AT&T and Verizon were told not to add the Mate 10 Pro to their lineups. The carriers listened, and now the Mate 10 Pro is available only unlocked.

Despite whatever political hurdles are present, the phone is actually an impressive flagship. Huawei put in a lot to make it compete directly against Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Apple’s iPhone X.

The Mate 10 Pro features a 6-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio, a Kirin 970 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, 12MP and 20MP cameras on the back, an 8MP front-facing camera, a 4000mAh battery, and Android 8.0 Oreo. In terms of design, Huawei went with glass and aluminum to boast a premium vibe.

Originally, the phone did seem a bit overpriced. But the discount makes the Mate 10 Pro much more appealing. At $699, you’re paying slightly less than the price of other flagships but still getting key qualities. If you’re interested, hit one of the links below.
