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.
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.
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.
