Shortly after Apple announced the iPhone X for the Malaysian market, Huawei Malaysia has also revealed the availability of its high-spec Mate 10 Pro. If you’ve been waiting for this model, you can finally buy the Mate 10 Pro on 24 November which is the same day that the iPhone X is released officially on our shores.
Huawei’s latest 18:9 flagship smartphone is officially priced at RM3,099 and that’s RM300 lower than last year’s Huawei Mate 9 Pro (RRP: RM3,399). As a comparison, the standard Huawei Mate 10 with a 16:9 screen and 64GB of storage is priced at RM2,699.
If you’re interested, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro will be available for pre-order beginning 16 November until 19 November and you can get it in either Midnight Blue or Mocha Brown. As a pre-order offer, Huawei is throwing in a Huawei Body Scale, a Huawei Colour Band A2 and a VIP Service Card which gives you 3 months one-on-one replacement for screen damage, 1-year warranty and door-to-door delivery service.
To recap, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro features a 6.0″ FullHD+ AMOLED display with HDR10 support. It feels narrower in the hands thanks to its 18:9 display aspect ratio and it also comes with IP67 dust and water resistance. Under the hood, you’ll find a top of the line Kirin 970 processor with a built-in NPU and it comes mated with 6GB of RAM and has 128GB of storage.
Unlike the standard Mate 10, you don’t get a headphone jack and microSD card expansion. It still comes with a pair of Leica Dual-Camera system which consists of a 20MP monochrome and a 12MP RGB system. Both lenses have an aperture of f/1.6 and there’s OIS for the primary lens. Over at the front, it comes with an 8MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.
Powering the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is a large 4,000mAh battery which supports Huawei’s SuperCharge feature via USB Type-C. You can charge it from 0-58% in just 30 minutes on the cable. Out of the box, it runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0.
