Not so long ago the estimated price of Huawei Mate 10 was named by source. According to them, the cost of new items at the time of release will be almost 1100 dollars.
If they are right, then the future Chinese flagship from Huawei will be the most expensive smartphone this year, if you do not take into account special luxury models like Vertu.
For comparison, at least the flagship Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with basic modifications will cost $ 999, which is cheaper than Huawei Mate 10. In general, the creators of the latter promise that their product will be better than any other novelty this fall, including even the Apple iPhone 8.
It is expected that Huawei Mate 10 will be based on the new powerful mobile processor HiSilicon Kirin 970. The amount of RAM in the maximum modification will be as much as 8 GB, and the built-in flash drive – 256 GB. Also, the smartphone will receive an updated dual camera with optics from Leica.
But the main feature of Huawei Mate 10 will be a huge 6-inch screen without frames. What will be its design and how many percent of the frontal surface it will occupy – it is not yet known. According to rumors, Huawei will install a matrix from JDI with a resolution of FullHD + 1080 × 2160 pixels.
Of course, such a high price for Huawei Mate 10 will definitely cut the number of potential buyers of the novelty. For this reason, the company allegedly is preparing a simplified version of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite with a 5.5-inch display and a simpler “iron” (presumably Kirin 965 and 4 GB of RAM).
The cost of Huawei Mate 10 Lite will be half the size of the top version and will be only $ 560 (again, if you believe the Poles). The main markets, where both novelties will begin to be sold first, will be the countries of Europe, the United States and, of course, China itself.
At the moment, Huawei has officially refused to produce cheap smartphones and decided to focus on the production of medium and high-end devices. So the future Mate 10 with its high cost completely fits into this strategy.
According to the company’s official information, the presentation of the new flagship will take place on October 16, 2017 in Munich. It is assumed that the pre-order Huawei Mate 10 will be available the day after the announcement.
