Pre-order the $800 Huawei Mate 10 Pro in the US: $150 gift card offer included

Huawei Mate 10 Pro is up for pre-sale in the US, comes with $150 gift card

In the US, the new Huawei Mate 10 Pro is already available for preorder from yesterday, February 5th. Major U.S. retailers and other sites are even offering discounts toward a purchase of the device.

Apart from this, the company will also make its premium variant, Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design phone available in the United States very soon. However, a few agencies in the USA are not comfortable with the idea fearing it could mean a security threat for the country as Huawei reportedly has links to the Chinese government.

"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. And if you pre-order the handset before its estimated February 18 ship date, you can receive a $150 Amazon gift card with your purchase.

Unlike the majority of Android handsets that utilize processors sourced from Qualcomm, the Mate 10 Pro uses Huawei's Kirin 970 chipset, silicon developed in-house by the Chinese phone maker specifically for its own devices.

In addition to the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, the new Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 will be available online at major retailers, including Best Buy, Amazon, Microsoft, Newegg, and B&H.

Huawei will start shipping this Mate 10 Pro smartphone on February 18. You also have options for 128GB or 64GB SSD. I have has a play around with the Mate 10 Pro and in my opinion it is the best smartphone in the world.

Although Huawei will sell unlocked versions of the Mate 10 Pro online, the deals with Verizon and AT&T would have raised the company's reputation in the US.

In addition, Huawei has started U.S. pre-orders for its most expensive smartphone model to date - the Mate 10 Porsche Design edition, which is priced at US$1,255. The Huawei Mate 10 comes with a 5.9-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) IPS LCD display, while the Huawei Mate 10 Pro sports a 6-inch fullHD+ AMOLED display, so not only do the two phones sport different display resolutions and aspect ratio, but completely different display technologies as well.
