New Huawei Mate 9 photos reveal curved and regular variants of the phone
Huawei will announce a new flagship smartphone on November 3, and we're all expecting this device to be the Mate 9. According to Venture Beat, the Huawei Mate 9 will have two distinct variants: one with a regular display (codenamed Manhattan), and one with a dual-curve screen (codenamed Long Island).

Venture Beat has it that these previously leaked renders that allegedly show the Mate 9 are not exactly accurate. Instead, the Mate 9 should look like in the images included below. As you can see, the curved Mate 9 bears a strong resemblance to the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

The curved Huawei Mate 9 is expected to sport a 5.9-inch Quad HD display, and might be released only in China (which kind of makes sense, as it resembles Samsung's Note 7 way too much not to raise some eyebrows if it's launched in the US and other markets around the world). The flat variant of the new smartphone should come with a Full HD screen of similar size. It's said that both the curved and regular Mate 9 are powered by octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 960 processors, having many common features, including dual rear cameras, up to 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space, and quick charging batteries.

Prices for the Huawei Mate 9 could start at around $500, though we're pretty sure that the dual curve model will cost more. The new phone might run Android Nougat out of the box. Do you think this handset will be of interest to you once it hits shelves?
