Will the Huawei Mate 9 utilize the manufacturer's Super Charge battery and charging system?

Back in April, Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang suggested that we could see the Huawei Mate 9 launch before the end of this year. Jiutang says that the phone will feature dual 20MP cameras on the back, and adds that the home grown Kirin 960 SoC will be under the hood. The chip will allegedly use ARM's next-gen Artemis cores, and employ an octa-core GPU. It also should support LTE Cat. 12 speed.

The Huawei Mate 8 was powered by a 4000mAh battery, and not only could we see a similarly well endowed juicer on the Mate 9, the latter handset could be equipped with Huawei's rapid battery charging technology. A patent has been applied for in the EU, seeking protection for the Huawei Super Charge name.

Back in November we told you that the Super Charge process requires not only a special charger, but also employs a special lithium-ion battery. In testing, the battery was 48% charged after just 5-minutes. Constant charging of the cell does not lower the life of the battery, or reduce its capacity in any way.

Nine months ago, Huawei Super Charge was not yet ready for prime time. Perhaps by now, Huawei has streamlined it to the point where it might appear on the Huawei Mate 9. The phone could be unveiled sometime before the end of this year.

Once Huawei puts all of their great features together in one phone they will finally have a dagger!

I dont understand why Huawei isnt putting a much comparable Graphic chip to match their powerful CPU? that is the only bottleneck i can see from their over all performance -_-

sure... once they find a way to make smaller version of that brick, and make it possible to charge via cable.. can't they just use Qualcomm's quickcharge? oh wait, they stuck with kirin, lol..

Kirin 960 most likely just higher clocked version of Kirin 955, and not "new gen Artemis cores", which instead most likely be released with Huawei P10 in 2017.
