After making its grand debut in October last month, the highly anticipated Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design finally goes on sale in China today, alongside the Mate 10 Pro. As expected, the luxury handset indeed comes with a mind-boggling price tag of 8,999 Yuan ($1357), surpassing the already hefty $999 price tag of the iPhone X.
Although the Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design cost considerably more than the Mate 10 Pro, there are in fact really subtle differences between the two handsets. Other than the bumped up internal storage space from 128GB to 256GB, the biggest difference will perhaps be the prestige of having the ‘Porsche Design’ logo at the front of the device. Of course, the $1357 unit also comes pre-loaded with some limited edition Porsche themes for its UI if you want to count that in.
For the benefits of those who’re rich enough to spend their money on this handset, here’s a quick round up of its key specs: 6″ AMOLED display with 1080×2160 pixels resolution, Kirin 970 SoC, 6GB of RAM, 256GB internal storage space, 20MP+12MP dual main snapper, 8MP front-facing selfie cam, 4,000mAh non-removable battery, as well as EMUI 8.0 running atop the latest Android 8.0 Oreo.
