Just yesterday we found out that Chinese phone maker – Meiigoo – is working on their next big hit named Meiigoo Mate10. As the name suggests, the Meiigoo Mate10 will be inspired by the Huawei Mate10, becoming a much cheaper alternative to the expensive Huawei flagship phone.
Today, the company released pretty much all the specs we’ll be finding on the Meiigoo Mate10, so we can have a detailed comparison with Huawei’s counterpart.
Gizchina News of the week

|Battery||3500mAh battery||4000mAh battery|

Based on the data above, we see that both phones seem to have some similarities, such as the dual rear camera setup, amount of RAM and storage, and – according to renders – a curved glass back cover. Obviously the Meiigoo Mate10 is not trying to fully compete with the sheer processing power of the Huawei Mate10, but rather bringing a cheaper yet still fairly powerful alternative.
Other than the CPU, another big difference is the price. The Huawei Mate10 does indeed sell for almost $825, meanwhile the Meiigoo Mate10 will costs around a third of that with a price tag of $239.99. Launch and presale dates are yet to be revealed, if interested, you can check out the company’s official website to learn more.
