If you are wondering how important the Singapore’s smartphone market is to Huawei, look no further than its recent Mate 10 Series launch. Singapore is the first country in the world to be able to purchase its Mate 10 Pro from Oct 28, just a day after Apple opens the iPhone X pre-order for Singapore (with a Nov 3 availability).
One key differtiating factor of the Huawei Mate 10 series is the company’s Kirin 970 processor – a chip that Huawei is calling the world’s first AI processor. The Huawei Mate 10 will come in 3 variants: Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10 Porsche Design Edition.
HUAWEI MATE 10
Starting at S$888, the Huawei Mate 10 (64GB) comes in two color options: Black and Mocha Brown. The Mate 10 builds on the Huawei Mate 9‘s large display design spotting the same 5.9″ screen size but this time with a barely-there bezel.
HUAWEI MATE 10 PRO
The Mate 10 Pro comes with a slightly larger 6″ Dual LED display, better water resistance rating and larger capacity. Available in Mocha Brown and Midnight Blue, the Mate 10 Pro will retail at S$1,098 from Nov 11 and Nov 25 respectively.
PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI MATE 10
While love don’t cost a thing, your love for the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 will set you back by a cool S$2,298. Available locally on Nov 24, the Porsche Design Mate 10 spots similar specs as the Mate 10 Pro but with a glass uni-body construction and sleek handcrafted exterior chassis. Like the Mate 10 Pro, the Porsche Design Edition does not come with a microSD slot unlike with the Mate 10.
