The new Huawei Mate 10 Pro is now available for pre-order from several different retailers starting today. The new flagship phablet device is $799.99 and will start shipping on February 18.
The phone will be sold unlocked and will work with various GSM carriers here in the US like AT&T, T-Mobile, and Cricket Wireless.
For those that don’t recall, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 970 octa-core processor, comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage on the base model. There is also a 6GB/128GB model. The display is a 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio AMOLED that gives ~402 ppi density. It is protected by Gorilla Glass.
Camera wise, you have a dual configuration consisting of a 12 MP (f/1.6, 27mm, OIS) and a 20 MP (f/1.6, 27mm). Both cameras are built with Leico optics and you have both phase dection and laser autofocus. The front facing selfie camera is an 8MP f/2.0 shooter. Powering all of this is a beefy 4000mAh battery that supports Huawei’s SuperCharge technology for rapid charging.
Finally, the Mate 10 Pro runs the Android Oreo based EMUI 8 build from Huawei with a significant amount of the company’s AI built into it and supported by the AI-centric SoC and other components. Like Google themselves, Huawei is pushing hard into the AI space and is making it a core component of their devices.
If you are interested in ordering, head over to Amazon. And, if you have a few extra hundred dollars to spare, you can go all out and get the Black Diamond Porsche Edition of the Mate 10 Pro. It’ll set you back $1225.
