Despite being originally released almost two whole years ago, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro
has made quite a few headlines of late thanks to one of the major retailers that officially carried the 6-inch Android powerhouse in the US back in the day.
Unlike Best Buy or Amazon, Newegg continues to sell an unlocked variant of the Mate 10 Pro
fully compatible with GSM networks nationwide, typically charging $479.99 a pop after enforcing several price cuts for a handset initially available at $799
. That's already pretty affordable, but for a limited time, you can purchase this bad boy in exchange for only $349 with a $50 Newegg promotional gift card included at no extra cost.
The deal is scheduled to end on Monday, August 5, beating all previous special offers
... once you take the e-coupon into consideration. Technically, the Huawei Mate 10
Pro is slightly costlier right now than just a few weeks ago
, but the 50 bucks you can shave off a future Newegg shopping session arguably make this a more compelling deal.
Up for grabs in "Midnight Blue" and "Mocha Brown" colors, the powerful device
is pretty hard to rival in today's sub-$400 unlocked segment in terms of processing speed, premium design, display quality, camera performance, or battery life. With a Kirin 970 SoC, 6GB RAM, 128 gigs of storage space, and a 4,000mAh juicer under the hood, the Mate 10 Pro
defies its advanced age on so many levels, not to mention that it sports a beautiful 6-inch OLED screen with razor-thin bezels and a dual 12 + 20MP rear-facing camera setup with Leica optics.
