The Mate 10 Pro launched in the United States for $800 three months ago, but it can now be purchased for $150 less through major online retailers like Amazon, Newegg, and B&H. Huawei's mid-range MateBook D laptop will also be $200 cheaper for only this upcoming week. The temporary price cuts aim to bolster sales in the backdrop of U.S. surveillance and suspicion of Chinese-branded telecommunication devices.

Huawei has been getting the cold shoulder from the United States government for what the country claims to be espionage and security concerns related to wireless devices made by the Chinese manufacturer. The controversy has been at least partly responsible for major outlets like AT&T and Best Buy dropping Huawei smartphones from their brick and mortar locations. Ever since then, the manufacturer has been slashing prices off its flagship Mate 10 Pro to encourage more sales.

This month is no different as Huawei will be temporarily cutting the price of its flagship smartphone once again. In honor of Mother's Day, the Mate 10 Pro will be $650 USD online from now until May 19th for a price drop of $150 USD. The manufacturer will also be introducing a new Mocha Brown color exclusively through Amazon to accompany the existing Blue and Black colors options.

Outside of the smartphone promotion, the entry-level MateBook D laptop will also be cheaper from $700 down to $500. However, this deal will only be running until the 13th whereas the Mate 10 Pro sale will last an entire week longer.

Huawei is set to launch its P20 Pro smartphone worldwide and its second generation MateBook X laptop in the coming weeks. Whether or not Huawei will pullout completely from the U.S. market in the near future remains to be seen.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
