Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro Gets Major Optimization Updates

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is not launching with a carrier in the U.S., but that may be a good thing as customers end up with a device free of U.S. carrier bloatware and restrictions on timely software updates. The US version of the Mate 10 Pro will not come with dual-SIM support. Major U.S. retailers and other sites are even offering discounts toward a purchase of the device.

Huawei is introducing a new variant of the Mate 10 Pro in Malaysia.

Apart from this, the company will also make its premium variant, Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design phone available in the United States very soon.

Earlier speculation claimed that USA lawmakers were anxious about the potential ties Huawei might have with the Chinese government.
