Slightly revising their schedules and plans announced at CES 2018, where the Mate 10 Pro was named the best smartphone, pre-orders are being accepted starting today through February 17th. Massdrop, a site that offers group discounts when enough people order a specific item, is offering a $100 discount on the Mate 10 Pro, cutting the price down to $699.
If we talk about its original pricing, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro smartphone is available at $799. Priced at $799.99, Huawei threw in an extra incentive, and you'll get a $150 gift card to whichever retailer that you purchase it from.
The mistrust has meant that USA carriers Verizon and AT&T have buckled under the pressure and decided against selling upcoming Huawei phones, including the Mate 10 Pro, but that doesn't mean US-based consumers won't be able to get their hands on one of the devices if they so choose.
Beyond the aesthetic difference, the Pink Gold Mate 10 Pro is virtually identical to other colour variants of the device. Those devices previously sold on US carriers did not support 5G, but the Mate 10 Pro will. It boasts Huawei's in-house Kirin 970 processor instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the chip typically found on 2017 flagships.

Ironically, this sanction actually provides an element of cover for the lender, which has found growth to be a challenge lately. And they're sticking with cost-cutting targets that include shaving about $4 billion in annual expenses by the end of 2019.
Apart from this, the company will also make its premium variant, Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design phone available in the United States very soon.
Huawei has partnered with Leica again this year for its dual camera setup.
The Mate 10 Pro was launched in November 2017, one of the first phones in Huawei's lineup to sport a almost bezel-less screen.
It's worth mentioning that ordering the Mate 10 Pro has technically been available to U.S. residents for some time now but only in the form of warranty-less worldwide stock.
Initially the Mate 10 Pro will be available in Midnight Blue and Titanium Grey, but Huawei says Mocha Brown will also be an available option in the near future.
