Huawei is hosting an event early next week where it is expected that the Huawei Mate 10 will be announced. In fact, it is also expected that as many as four variants may be introduced, consisting of the standard Huawei Mate 10, the Mate 10 Pro, a Mate 10 Lite, and a Mate 10 Porsche Edition. While it is still unclear whether all four of the models will launch, prices for three of the models mentioned have now reportedly leaked online…again.
These prices come from a tipster in China via Weibo and so it does have to be made clear that they are likely to be specific to the Chinese market. How much they will fluctuate from these figures if and when all three models do come to the US or Europe remains to be seen. If nothing else though, they do provide a good oversight as to how much the devices will likely cost and just as importantly, the difference in price between the three models, the Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, and the Mate 10 Porsche Edition, and their respective versions. For example, the tipster states the Huawei Mate 10 with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage will be priced in at 4299 yuan (roughly $653). The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage model will be priced at 4899 yuan (roughly $745), while the 6GB RAM and 256GB storage option will come in at 5599 yuan (roughly $850). Moving to the Mate 10 Pro model and the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant is said to cost 5499 yuan (roughly $835), while the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage model will cost 6199 yuan (roughly $942), and the 6GB RAM and 256GB storage option will be priced at 6899 yuan (roughly $1,048). When it comes to the Mate 10 Porsche Edition, according to the tipster this one will be equipped with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage and will evidently be the most expensive option priced at 7499 yuan (roughly $1,139). Prices which seem to be very much in line with a previous leak that came through about a month ago.
As for the specs, needless to say it is expected that both the standard Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro will be available in different RAM and storage configurations as listed above. Likewise, it is highly likely that the screen sizes will differ across at least some of the models, although it is also expected that all models announced will come powered by the company’s own Kirin 970 octa-core SoC. In addition, all three are very likely to continue the Mate line’s emphasis on sporting a dual rear camera configuration, while Huawei itself seemingly confirmed recently that the Mate 10 (presumably all models) will come running on Android 8.0 (Oreo) at launch.
