Vodafone announces Huawei Mate 10 pre-order pricing

Grab Huawei's latest premium handset from today starting at just $67.45 per month.

Vodafone has just opened up pre-orders for the Huawei Mate 10, the Chinese maker's latest premium phone. In Australia, the Mate 10 will be exclusive to Vodafone, while the upscale Huawei Mate 10 Pro will be an Optus phone, but that handset's not due to arrive until December. Expected availability for the Mate 10 through Vodafone should be from 15 November (when you'll also be able to buy it outright through JB Hi-Fi). Pre-orders through Vodafone will also score a bonus Huawei 360 Panoramic VR camera.

As has been its style of late, Vodafone decouples the Mate 10's handset repayments from the actual plan, with options to repay the phone cost over 12, 24 or 36 months. This does give you flexibility, but also means that there's no particular "discount" on the handset repayments on higher plan tiers.

Here's what Vodafone will charge for the Huawei Mate 10 over 24 months. Vodafone lists minimum prices based on just the handset plus 1 month (and that is, to be fair, the absolute minimum you'd pay), but we've calculated out against the entire cost over 24 months staying on the same plan.

While Vodafone doesn't tie the phone handset repayments to the contract, you do have to remain a Vodafone customer for the full term of your handset repayment contract, or pay the entire balance out when you cancel your plan.
