Mate 10 Pro Smartphone retails in the U.S. market for a whopping price of $799 per unit.
Huawei Mate 10 Pro phone was supposed to launch via U.S. carriers, AT&T and Verizon Wireless next month, however it appears that the deals for both carriers has fell through.
Instead, the smartphone is expected to be launched in the U.S. market as an unlocked device with a mouth dropping price tag of $800 per unit. If you have the funds readily available you can pre-order from a number of retailers including Best Buy, Amazon, Microsoft, Newegg, and B&H. The online retailers listed above will start accepting pre-orders starting February 4th to Feb 17th. The handset will be officially launched on Feb 18th.
The news of both carriers backing out from selling the new phone will definitely destroy Huawei sales. Most premium phones sold in the U.S. are done with payment plans through carriers and credit providers. With neither creditor or carrier backing the handset, the sales of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro won’t be worth talking about.
According to various reports, both carriers broke the deal after U.S. lawmakers voiced concern over the deal and urged carriers not to sell the handsets. It is said to be all political, as they are concerned about privacy and Huawei’s ties with the Communist Part and China’s Intelligence agencies.
