Kirin 960 powered Huawei Mate 9 to be released by the end of the year?
According to analyst Pan Jiutang, we could see the Huawei Mate 9 released before the end of this year. Jiutang says that the phone will be powered by a new high-end chipset designed by Huawei, the Kirin 960. The chipset will be produced using the 16nm process. The CPU will use ARM's next generation Artemis cores, and the SoC will be equipped with an octa-core GPU. The chip will support LTE Cat.12 connectivity and CDMA networks.

The Huawei P9 was recently launched with a dual camera setup. One 12MP snapper takes color shots, while the other shoots in monochrome. The second camera helps provide more accurate lighting information to help take better shots, and also snaps black and white photos. According to Jiutang, the Mate 9 will also feature a dual camera set up, but those cameras will come with 20MP sensors.

Other specs, including information about the screen, RAM and native storage, are left to our imagination for the time being. Considering that this phone might not be released for some time, there is plenty of opportunity for some leaks to surface in the future.

Huawei has said that it will be releasing a flagship phone for the U.S. later this year. While many have figured that this would be the Huawei P9, perhaps it will be the Mate 9 heading to the states instead.
