Description

Unlike the standard Mate 9 that sports a 5.9-inch full HD (1080p) display, the Huawei Mate 9 Pro comes with a smaller 5.5-inch dual edge curved display that supports a better Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. Furthermore, the fingerprint sensor on the back of the regular Mate 9 has been moved to the front in the Mate 9 Pro model. The rest of the phone's specs remain the same, including the Kirin 960 chipset, dual-camera setup, amount of RAM and battery size (4,000 mAh). However, the Mate 9 Pro will cost slightly more than the standard model.

Display

  • Display size:
    • 5.5 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1440 x 2560 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 534 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    • AMOLED
  • Screen-to-body ratio:

    Screen-to-body ratio - Shows what part of the frontal area of a phone its screen occupies.

    • 73.27 %
  • Features:

      • Optical image stabilization, Laser and Phase detection autofocus, CMOS image sensor, Back-illuminated sensor (BSI)
    • Specifications:
      • Aperture size:

        Aperture size - The aperture of a camera is the opening through which light travels before it reaches the camera sensor. The smaller the number is, the bigger this opening is, allowing for more light to pass.

        F2.2; Focal length:

        Focal length - The lower (shorter) the focal length number, the wider the shot will be. Conversely, longer focal length cameras produce narrower frames, which can be used for telephoto (zoomed-in) purposes.

        27 mm; Sensor size:

        Sensor size - A bigger camera sensor is able to capture more light, and thus produce better photos.

        1/2.9"; Pixel size:

        Pixel size - The size of an individual pixel on a camera's sensor. The bigger, the better.

Hardware & Performance

  • System chip:

    System chip - Most modern handsets use an advanced chip that includes many of the device’s hardware modules like the processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and sometimes even the wireless radio. This field shows what particular system chip (or System-on-a-Chip) is used in the phone.

    • HiSilicon Kirin 960
  • Processor:

    Processor - The processor is the main computing component of a phone and is a major factor when it comes to the overall speed of the device. Some more powerful smartphones use dual-core and quad-core processors designed to deliver greater performance.
