The company is offering a $150 gift card with it. Users can get it from the retailer they choose to purchase the phone.

In addition, Huawei has started United States pre-orders for its most expensive smartphone model to date - the Mate 10 Porsche Design edition, which is priced at US$1,255.

Despite losing its USA carrier partnerships, Huawei went ahead and announced that it would be bringing the Mate 10 Pro to the states unlocked for $799. Those retailers include Amazon, Best Buy, Microsoft, Newegg and B&H. And while you might be able to place pre-orders now, the handset will start shipping no sooner than February 18. The device is powered by a Kirin 970 CPU that was developed in-house, comes with a 4,000mAh battery.

"Featuring the world's first AI-enhanced processor with a dedicated Neural Network Processing Unit (NPU) in a smartphone, the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro achieves new breakthroughs in computing capacity to deliver up to 25 times better performance and up to 50 times greater energy efficiency for AI-related tasks", Huawei said in a press release. Being an extra premium smartphone and a special edition device, the Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design carries a price tag of $1,255.

Huawei took a hit in January when AT&T and Verizon both ditched individual deals with Huawei to sell the handset in their stores, allegedly because of pressure from the government.

The Mate 10 Pro, among Phonemantra favourite phones from previous year, is powered by Huawei's very own Kirin 970 processor, which gives performance similar to what you would expect from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835-powered phone like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

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.

On the back are dual cameras - 12 and 20 megapixels - with Leica optics that can record 4K-resolution video at 30 fps. Front 8 megapixel camera with f/2.0.

Huawei has announced this Mate 10 Pro smartphone with three different color options, Midnight Blue, Mocha Brown and Titanium Grey.
