The Huawei Mate 10 Pro to launch in UK on Nov 17 for £699

Huawei took the wraps off of its newest big-screened handsets on October 16th, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. While the Chinese electronics company announced that the Mate 10 Pro would be priced at €799 in Europe, it wasn’t known how much the phone would cost in the UK. Until today.

When it becomes available to order in the UK from mid-November onwards, the Mate 10 Pro will carry a price tag of £699. For a flagship handset that’s a refreshingly accessible price, much unlike say the Galaxy Note 8 with its £869 price tag, or even the LG V30 which somehow costs £799.

£699 is a fantastic price in this age of inflated smartphone pricing, and the Mate 10 Pro gives you a big 6-inch FHD OLED 18:9 display, Kirin 970 processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage (no MicroSD support), 20MP Monochrome +12MP RGB dual rear cameras, 8MP front camera, 4,000mAh battery, and USB Type C. Plus, the AI processor that Huawei says will help the phone’s camera recognize scenes and objects in real-time. The Mate 10 Pro also runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Huawei’s EMUI 8 interface on top.

If you are in the UK, does the Mate 10 Pro’s £699 price tag tempt you into buying one when it launches in the UK on November 17? If you aren’t sure, keep an eye out for our upcoming review of the handset.

    That’s a better price than the rest and, this is the flagship I’m most interested in. I’m still gonna wait until the new year though… see if that price drops a little more.

      It is a nice phone, I’ve had the review unit a few days now. Very impressed with the camera so far.

        Looking forward to the proper reviews coming through (including yours, of course). So far I’ve only really seen first impressions and hands on.

    Where is source for this price?

    I’d expect it to be cheaper than the note 8, it’s missing half the spec and functionality.
