Huawei's Mate 10 Pro is finally available for pre-order in the US
AT&T and Verizon may have pulled out of selling the Huawei Mate 10 Pro in the US—under a little bit of political pressure—but luckily, you can still get your hands on Huawei's latest flagship smartphone and it's well-reviewed "co-engineered with Leica" dual camera.
The Chinese manufacturer announced that pre-orders for the unlocked version of the Mate 10 Pro are starting in the US today, in-store and online at electronic retailers including Amazon, BestBuy, Microsoft, Newegg, and B&H. The phone will initially be available in Midnight Blue and Titanium Grey. A Mocha Brown variant will make it to the stores in the near future. In addition, the souped-up Porsche Design version of the Mate 10 Pro will be available online starting February 18th.
We spoke to a Huawei spokesperson to confirm, and even though you won't be able to purchase a Mate 10 Pro through a carrier, the unlocked device will operate on GSM networks in the U.S., including: AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS, Simple Mobile and Tracfone. As an added bonus, customers that pre-order between now and February 17th will receive a $150 gift card from the retailer from which it was purchased.
If you are contemplating replacing your current device, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is definitely worth a closer look. Its Leica-co-engineered camera performed very well during our testing, and it's a great device is general use as well. The regular Mate 10 Pro in its various colors goes for $800 unlocked, while the special Porsche Design version will retail for $1,225 when it starts shipping in 12 days' time.
