This one was announced so quietly it almost slipped us by unnoticed. But, while our Android Central pals were out at CES 2018 they learned that Microsoft will indeed be selling another phone on the Store: The Huawei Mate 10 Pro.
The news faded into the background amid the press reports on how Huawei's big ambitions with U.S. carriers had been shot down. But hidden in plain sight in the Android Central report was the news that Microsoft will be helping Huawei sell unlocked in the American market. At least part of the reason Microsoft is getting involved in sales has to do with the Mate 10 Pro's onboard AI and translation capabilities are powered by Microsoft tech, allowing it to perform difficult translations on whole blocks of text in seconds.
The Mate 10 Pro is a pretty good phone to have on the shelves, too. Its dual-cameras proudly bear the Leica badge, it's got a great display, powerful internals, a nice design and mad battery life. Huawei also has its own Continuum-alike desktop mode with the Mate 10 Pro, so if you were looking for a replacement, this might be it.
It'll cost $799, which is quite a lot, or if you're feeling flush the special Porsche Design edition will also be on sale for $1,225. If you're spending a grand on a phone may as well get one with a designer logo attached, right?
Sales are set to begin on February 18. If you're interested, be sure to check out Android Central's full review.
