Specs for Premium Version of Huawei Mate 9 Leak Ahead of Launch


So, we all know that Huawei is gearing up for its biggest device launch in recent months in a few days’ time. November 3rd to be specific. We’ve seen and heard so much about the device we expect to see at that event on Thursday. However, as is usually the case, the finer details usually arrive a few days or even hours to the unveiling.

True to that form, we have what are purported to be specifications of the premium version of the Huawei Mate 9 since at this point it is nearly a given that there will be at least two variants of the device.

The 5.9-inch device’s display will be a Quad HD panel (2560 x 1440 pixels), the new Kirin 960 processor backed by a Mali G71 MP8 GPU, 6GB RAM, 256GB internal storage as well as a dual-camera setup at the back with one camera having a 20-megapixel sensor and the other a 12-megapixel sensor, courtesy of Huawei’s partner Leica, of course.

The Mate 9 will be Huawei’s first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat. However, that is already dated since there is Android 7.1. The company is expected to provide a timeline for when it will be upgrading the device to Android 7.1 which the new Pixel smartphones from Google run on.

The standard version of the Mate 9 may sport a full HD display and 4GB RAM with either 128GB or 256GB onboard storage.
