Huawei's Mate 9 flagship spotted in numerous colors with dual Leica cameras
The current Huawei Mate 8
ichangezone may finally offer a legitimate look at what Huawei has in the pipeline. While smartphones are known to arrive in different shades to suit consumer tastes -- Huawei's handsets very much included -- it's relatively unheard that a company should roll out so many different options. This leak depicts eight different colors, but some appear quite similar to others. Whether Huawei plans to lay on such a broad choice remains to be seen, but we certainly won't complain if the Mate 9 is offered in so many hues.Renders leaked via Weibo user

The device will likely feature Huawei's to-be-announced HiSilicon Kirin 960 64-bit chip, which is expected to pack eight cores. As is vogue for handsets of the flagship variety, a model with 6 GB of RAM could be on offer, though a cheaper variant with just the 4 GB RAM is also expected.
With a proposed 4000 mAh battery set to be squeezed under the hood, the Mate 9 could be quite something. We don't know precisely when the device will materialize, though Huawei has said it'll be unveiled before the end of this year.
It should be noted that this is merely a leak, so should be taken with the usual dose of salt for the time being. That said, do take a peek through the gallery, and be sure to let us know what you make of the Mate 9's purported form factor in the comments below.
