Huawei Mate 9: 20MP, 12MP rear Leica cameras; battery charges to 50% of capacity in 5 minutes

First, there is speculation that the Mate 9 will feature a dual camera setup in back. Like the rear cameras on the Huawei P9, the optics on the Mate 9 will be manufactured by Leica. One camera is expected to be 20MP while the other will weigh in at 12MP. An 8MP front-facing camera will handle selfies and video chats.
All of these specs are coming from Weibo posts. which means that they need to be taken with a grain of salt. That includes the reported Super Charge Technology on the phone that will allegedly charge the battery to 50% of capacity in only five minutes. Rumors about the size of the display have been scarce, but the latest one calls for a 5.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920.
We expect that there will be three variants of the Huawei Mate 9. One with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash storage will be priced as low as $480 USD, and will be available in three colors. Another with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage will come in five hues, priced at the equivalent of $585 USD. And the premium model with 6GB of RAM will be equipped with 256GB of native storage and will fetch a price of $705 USD.
The Huawei Mate 9 should be released some time in the middle of next month.

Stylus is a joke and worthless, QHD eats battery life and performance for nothing, some high end and even mid range huawei phone has a good dac, emui is better en better every year, the p9's camera is one of the best in sunlight . NEXT.

Too big display - 5.9" means brick size. Fingerprint on the back?!? Come on! It is useless there. Put it in front or side loke Sony. How you'll unlock your phone if it is laying on the table? Not my taste.

Doesn't come with the gpu that you think. Inside of the Kirin 960 will come a octo core gpu based in the Mali-G71. It will have a lot more performance than the gpu inside of Kirin 950/55. Search in the net to confirm these gpu specs.

64GB is more than enough for me.:)

I hope the "Super" charging tech is a safe one. No one wants another company's phone blowing up due to faulty battery or faulty battery charging tech. That being said I wonder how they're going to implement 20mp and 12mp camera. I'm curious......

My interest are definitely piqued concerning this handset, especially the chipset and cameras.

It'll be definitely interesting to see how well that Soc performs. I'm waiting to see hands on reviews of the new pixels as well as the Dtek60. Really hoping Blackberry can pull off a hit with this upcoming phone and may just pick one up if made available before the end of the year.

Android Central just reported a new incident. In Minnesota. A young girl's Note 7 burned up. A replacement unit they said. Surprise PA hasn't reported anything yet.

a) Aren't all new explosions currently 'alleged' only, none have been verified, no matter how rabid the fanboys on this site like to be? But yeah, that hasn't stopped PA from reporting the 'news'. b) You're in a Huawei Mate 9 article.

Ahhhh that's what I thought, there's no denying they're Note 7s, however I didn't think that anyone has officially said why some are still going boom. Still, there's been, what... maybe 3 or 4 of these reports after the recall? I guess it can't be too much longer before we find out.

If the battery drains as fast as it charges then I would wait for this new technology to get even better. But dam 50% in 5 minutes is just insane. The trickle charge might be extremely slow to reduce heat I assume. Still pretty dam impressive
