Latest rumored specs of the Huawei Mate 9 surface
One of the most eagerly anticipated handsets expected to be unveiled before the year ends is the Huawei Mate 9. In fact, Huawei has already invited us to attend an exclusive event in Munich on November 3rd. The manufacturer told us to expect the introduction of a new flagship phone during this event. That dovetails with reports of an early November introduction of the Mate 9 that we passed along to you last month.
The latest rumored specs for the Mate 9 include a 5.9-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Making its debut on the Huawei Mate 9 is the Kirin 960 chipset, designed by Huawei. 4GB/6GB of RAM is inside (more on that later) and up to 256GB of flash storage is on board. A dual camera setup using Leica optics is on back (20MP + 12MP), with an aperture of f/2.0. Android 7.0 is pre-installed with Huawei's Emotion UI 5 running on top. While we don't know the capacity of the battery, there will be a fast charge feature for rapid charging. A fingerprint scanner is located under the dual cameras on back.
Late last month we showed you a leaked promo revealing that there will be a version of the Mate 9 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. This variant should be available in three colors for the equivalent of $480-$510 USD. The Mate 9 with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage is expected to be offered in five colors for $585 USD. And the top-of-the-line Huawei Mate 9 will come with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of flash memory for $705 USD. There are six color options available with this version of the phone.
As we get closer to November 3rd, we should start to see some more leaks pertaining to the Huawei Mate 9. Feel free to check in often.
