In comparison, the price of its rival iPhone X on e-commerce websites was roughly similar or even lower than its official price tag.

A Beijing-based retailer on Taobao.com, who sells Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 at a price of 18,500 yuan, said that the high price is due to the limited supplies of the device. “A lot of people have made enquires, but very few have made the purchases,” he added.

With a diamond black appearance and a custom Porsche Design interface, the 256-GB handset, as part of Mate 10 series, is targeted mainly at high-end consumers. It also boasts a slate of fancy artificial intelligence features such as intelligent photography.

“The ultimate reason is that there is an acute shortage of the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 handsets. The device uses an active-matrix organic light-emitting diode display screen from Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. The short supply of such screens may pose challenges for Huawei as it tries to catch up with the top smartphone firms,” said Jia Mo, an analyst at market research company Canalys.

Unveiled just a few weeks before the much-expected shipment date of Apple’s iPhone X, Mate 10 series marks the company’s efforts to challenge Apple in the premium segment.

“Given that the competition has just started, it does not mean that the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 will sell better than the iPhone X in the fourth quarter,” he added.
