Huawei brought its Mate 10 Pro into the American market at CES. But under pressure from Washington, AT&T pulled out at the last minute and decided not to carry the phone. At this time, the Mate 10 Pro is not sold by any mainstream operator.
“It’s a huge loss for Huawei and US operators as well. It is damaging to consumers because it prevents them from making the best choice,” Yu Chengdong, president of Huawei consumer business, said at CES.
But the Mate 10 Pro will still be available from Amazon, Best Buy and other e-commerce providers. Mate 10 Pro is available for pre-order on multiple e-commerce suppliers, including Amazon, Best Buy, B&H and Newegg. It will go on sale on February 18. The handset comes in three colors: mocha gray, black and blue. It is priced $799.99 (5,045 yuan), and will come with a gift card worth $150. Huawei said the Mate 10 Pro is also likely to be sold on the US Microsoft Store.
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro overseas edition will be similar to the Chinese version, equipped with a Kirin 970 processor, 6GB storage, 6-inch OLED screen, FHD+ resolution, rear cameras with 2000+1200 megapixel and a built-in 4000mAh battery. In addition, the overseas version will also have a built-in Google Assistant to make up for EMUI’s lack of localization in the United States.
