It's only been one week since Huawei's last promotion on the Mate 10 Pro and now the manufacturer is bringing it back but with a deeper $150 discount. The news follows on the footsteps of Best Buy's plan to drop all Huawei devices because of U.S. Intelligence intervention.

The biggest smartphone maker in China is being constantly snubbed in the U.S. market for what the government claims to be a cybersecurity risk related to foreign smartphones. As a result of this suspicion and fear, popular U.S. carriers like AT&T or Verizon do not stock any Huawei smartphones in any of their stores even if the devices are otherwise fully compatible with local networks. The move is proving to be a huge splinter in Huawei's plans to penetrate the North American market where Samsung and Apple reign supreme.

To combat the negative PR, Huawei will be dropping the price of the well-received Mate 10 Pro yet again for a limited time. The smartphone was already made cheaper last week temporarily by $100 because of the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, but the savings will be even more at $150 on this latest promotion. The final price of $650 for Huawei's current flagship smartphone may be enough to persuade those on the fence.

The new price will be in effect for two weeks from April 1st to April 14th through major online retailers like Amazon, Newegg, and Best Buy. The latter store, however, will soon stop selling Huawei products altogether due to the aforementioned security concerns. It wouldn't be surprising to see Huawei roll out yet another "temporary" price cut following this one should retailers continue to turn a blind eye towards Chinese smartphones.

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.
