Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Smartwatch hands-on
Huawei’s just announced intentions to bring the Mate 10 Pro to the U.S. Fast on its heels is the Mate 10 Porsche Design, set to be released in mid-February. The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 revs up specs a bit, while adding some class, and a whole lot of price, at $1,225.
In terms of specs, the key upgrade found on the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 is the bump to 256GB of on-board storage vs 64/128GB on the Mate 10 Pro. That aside, the two phones share the same 6-inch, 18:9 OLED display, the lauded Kirin 970 flagship chipset, 12MP dual camera, and 4000mAh built-in battery.
But the two phones differ aesthetically. The Mate 10 Porsche Design comes in a new color named Diamond Black and features Porsche Design branding. You also get a premium leather case in the set, while the interface has been spiced up with new themes.
While checking out Huawei's luxury handset we also came across the Porsche Design Huawei Smartwatch. The pricey wearable shows some resemblance to the Huawei Watch 2, but comes with a more streamlined ceramic bezel and a diamond-like carbon finish. You also get a hybrid band made of leather and rubber.
