Huawei may not be launching the Mate 10 Pro with a U.S. carrier like previously anticipated, but the company is still bringing its flagship Android phone stateside.
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro will be available for pre-order in the U.S. starting February 4th, with a launch scheduled for February 18th. Pricing will set at $799 for an unlocked phone, and it'll be available from Amazon, B&H, Best Buy, Microsoft, and Newegg. Color options will include Titanium Gray, Mocha Brown, and Midnight Blue.
This unlocked Mate 10 Pro will support GSM networks, meaning it'll work with AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS, Simple Mobile, and TracFone in the U.S.
Huawei has equipped the Mate 10 Pro with a flagship-tier spec list that includes a 6-inch 216x1080 OLED display with slim bezels and an octa-core Kirin 970 processor. There's also a Leica-branded dual rear camera setup with one 20MP monochrome sensor and one 12MP RGB sensor. These cameras can combine to offer features like real-time scene and object recognition and bokeh. The cameras also offer an f/1.6 aperture and dual LED flash.
Inside the Mate 10 Pro's IP67-rated dust and water resistant body lives 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 4,000mAh battery. There's also a fingerprint reader on the back of the device and an 8MP camera with f/2.0 aperture on the front for all of your selfie needs.
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro comes preloaded with Android 8.0 Oreo running below Huawei's custom EMUI 8.0 user interface. That UI offers features like multi-column viewing and a navigation dock that you can place anywhere on the screen for easier one-handed usage.
Huawei says that it'll also bring the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 to the U.S. It'll be available from Amazon, Best Buy, and Microsoft starting February 18th for $1,225.
The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 has a "unique front and back cover design" that's covered in glass and a Diamond Black color. This device is largely similar to the Mate 10 Pro in terms of specs, but it does come with 256GB of built-in storage.
