In addition to the announcement of pre-orders, additional details on the payment options for the two devices were also provided. Rogers announced that the Huawei P10 will be available for an off contract price of $649 CAD. For those who plan to purchase the phone on a plan, the carrier sells the device with upfront payments ranging from $499 CAD on a two-year Talk and Text Plan to zero upfront payment if the subscriber is enrolled in a two-year Premium+ Tab plan. The Huawei P10 will be available in black and prestige gold, with the latter being a Rogers exclusive in Canada.
