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.
