Huawei will announce a new flagship device on November 3, possibly the Mate 9
Huawei today invited us to an exclusive press conference that will take place on November 3 in Munich, Germany. On that day, the company will officially unveil "a new flagship device."

Huawei didn't provide specific details about its upcoming device, but it's very likely that this is the rumored Mate 9.

The Huawei Mate 9 will be a pretty large smartphone - which isn't surprising, since it's succeeding the 6-inch Mate 8. It's said that the Mate 9 will sport a 5.9-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) screen, offering an all-metal design, and a Leica-branded dual rear camera. The new handset is expected to be powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor, further featuring a 4000 mAh battery, up to 6 GB of RAM, and up to 256 GB of storage space.

We liked the Mate 8 for its design and battery life, but we weren't impressed with its display, user interface, and cameras. Let's hope the Mate 9 will bring improvements on all fronts. Until we hear more about this, you can check out a series of alleged Huawei Mate 9 renders in the slideshow below (right now, we can't be sure that this is what the real device will look like).

Huawei put a lot more into advertising than they do into their phones.

Ugly?

If THAT'S ugly then I've no idea what BEAUTY is...!

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder...

And...

Better hear this out, toy might mean something...

Ugliness lies in the heart of the beholder...

Think about it...

G'Day!

"toy might mean something."

Sigh... Darn keyboard, totally ruined the 'moment'...

I meant to say;

"You might learn something..."

The Kirin 960 is Artemis arm Cortex A73 architechture. The people who say that is Cortex A72 are totally wrong. Please search in the net and confirm. It's A73.

Oh, it will. IPhonearena will not let any phone score higher than their mighty iPhone 7 and 7 plus.
