Huawei Mate 10 Pro Finally Up For Pre-order In US

Despite losing its USA carrier partnerships, Huawei went ahead and announced that it would be bringing the Mate 10 Pro to the states unlocked for $799.

"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 Consumer Business Group. Major U.S. retailers and other sites are even offering discounts toward a purchase of the device.

The Mate 10 Pro is the latest Huawei flagship that features the world's first Kirin Artificial Intelligence (AI) processor, the Kirin 970, as well as sporting a 4000mAh battery and Leica lens for its camera set. That fell apart though at the last minute amidst pressure from USA lawmakers seeking to limit Huawei's participation in the US market on concern of Chinese government spying.

"U.S. security agencies and some lawmakers fear that 5G phones made by companies that may have close ties to the Chinese government could pose a security risk", Bloomberg reports.

Those who will preorder between now and February 17 will even get a $150 gift card from any retailer of their choosing, according to a press release. It must be noted that the phone works only on the GSM network. Retailing for $1,255USD starting February 18th, the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 combines luxury aesthetics with cutting-edge mobile engineering and technology. In terms of functionality, both the regular and Porsche version are nearly the same, but the latter is encased in glass and also expands up to 256 GB. You also have options for 128GB or 64GB SSD. Otherwise, all the specifications are same as the regular Huawei Mate 10 Pro. What's more, Massdrop, a service that slashes the price of a product when a certain number of people order it, is offering a whopping $100 discount on the Mate 10 Pro, which brings the price point to just $700.

In addition, the Mate 10 Pro comes with the dual rear facing cameras - 12-megapixel monochrome sensor, and 20-megapixel color sensor.
