Huawei Mate 9 unboxing


We highly doubt that any other manufacturer will announce a phone that is as high-spec'd as the Mate 9 - announced just yesterday, Huawei's latest phone is a 5.9-inch high-end phablet that might not make it to the USA, but definitely deserves a mention. The intriguing dual-camera phone arrives with Huawei's home-baked Kirin 960 chip along with 4GB of RAM, as well as potentially great battery life thanks to the 4,000mAh juicer keeping the lights on. 

Intrigued by the device, we have taken it upon ourselves to come up with a review soon, but we can't do that without sharing the phone's unboxing with you. As we love giving you sneak peeks at the unboxings we make, we are going to share the Huawei Mate 9's one with you.

You can check our video of the unboxing process right above; you will find a gallery with some notable beauty shots in the gallery right below. In case you want to learn more about the phone itself, follow the links right beneath.

Yea, cause they all had really good GPUs capable of 4K video recording and dual camera on the back.

Why do you care if it "makes it to the USA" or not when it already comes with all the LTE bands anyone could want for use in the US? Just import it from China, I have done that with a number of phones using DHL, never had a problem with any of them.

So you are saying I can get it from their website and it is going to work in the US with Att? It is just scary to import and take the risk of being disappointed if it doesn't work when it gets here.

If Huawei had any sense they would"Americanize" it and formally bring it to the US. I've used a Mate 8 since last February on AT&T and for the most part it works well once you set it up properly and substitute some apps that aren't compatibke, (texting for example). But since it had the bands ehybin the world can't Huawei go that final mile with software, so that it shows LTE rather than just 4 G, and include a us charger and warranty. I'm hoping that they will... finally. Since of us would like a flagship caliber big phone, and this is the only one around

For the past few months, I've been praising Huawei for being the only OEM currently making dual camera phones where the camera sits flush with the body and isn't protruding with an ugly raised frame around it.... Looks like they've jumped ship to having both an small hump, as well as the black frame around the cameras. Huawei's Honor 8 has the pinnacle of gorgeous dual camera setup. Should've taken design cues from that.

Any chance we can get a size comparison? Better yet, added to the size compare tool?
