Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro could be priced ~RM2998 and ~RM3993 due to rising component costs?

While we previously covered Huawei Mate 10 pricing direct from Huawei as being below RM3K, news of rising component costs has hinted that the Huawei Mate 10 could be priced at 599 euros (~RM2998). The Mate 10 Pro on the other hand might see a jump as high as 799 euros (about RM4000). Tech specs like the Kirin 970 processor with dedicated Artificial Intelligence Neural Processing Unit, 6.2-inch bezel-free display, a 3D front lens for face unlocking, Leica dual rear cameras and a 4000 mAh battery are expected to remain the same though.

Would you still buy the Huawei Mate 10 or Mate 10 Pro if such a price increase happened? Considering that the Apple iPhone X is expected to go for RM4999 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is priced at RM3999, these are still very well-priced flagship smartphones. Nonetheless, do take this with a pinch of salt as it is mostly still a rumour and European prices tend to be inflated somewhat anyway. What do you think?
