Despite Huawei having a strong presence internationally, we don't see a lot of the company in the U.S. That could change soon.
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro may be sold by AT&T in the U.S. The folks at XDA Developers got hold of a firmware named BLA-A09-att-us, which is similar to the BLA-L09 firmware used on the international Huawei Mate 10 Pro, save for the addition of "att-us" at the end.
Unsurprisingly, this firmware leak doesn't include any details about when AT&T might launch the Huawei Mate 10 Pro or how much it'll cost when it does. A recent report from The Information did say that Huawei is working with AT&T to launch a flagship smartphone in the first half of 2018, though, and today's leak seems to back up that rumor.
When it comes to price, Huawei said that the Mate 10 Pro would cost €799 ($943 USD) when it announced the device last month. Launching on AT&T would help consumers buy the Mate 10 Pro since AT&T would presumably offer it with monthly payments.
Huawei makes some nice devices, and the Mate 10 Pro looks like one of them. It's a flagship-tier device with a 6-inch 2160x1080 OLED display, dual rear cameras (one 12MP RGB sensor, one 20MP monochrome sensor), 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, IP67 water and dust resistance, and a 4,000mAh battery. It would be great to see the Mate 10 Pro offered by a U.S. carrier, both because having more choice is always a good thing and because the option of buying one with monthly payments would give more people the opportunity to try the device.
If AT&T does launch the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, will you consider buying it?
