Huawei quietly puts Mate 9 with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage for sale

While the company has made no announcements in regards to the 6GB Mate 9, the seller on Amazon is specified as none other than Huawei itself, and then there's a second reputable retailer selling the device. So chances are the 6GB RAM / 128GB storage Mate 9 is, indeed, the real deal.
Memory aside, core specs remain the same, but the price has been bumped significantly. While the base model remains at $600, the souped-up version goes for $880. The considerable price premium probably won't do Huawei any favors, as specs enthusiasts will also consider the $480 OnePlus 3T – another 6GB RAM / 128GB storage phone with competitive performance and features for $400 less.

Exactly what I had in mind. Huawei isn't doing itself any favorswith such premium price tag of $880. Might as well just get a OnePlus 3T... easier that way.

I saw the link on amazon. That was supposed to be the mate 9 pro. They just put the wrong picture. The specs even show it.
