Huawei Announces The HUAWEI Mate 9
In a dedicated launch event in Germany, Huawei announced its brand new flagship- the Huawei Mate 9. The new Mate 9 is a significant improvement in almost every aspect compared to previous phones launched by the company.
One of the things Huawei has chosen not to change is its display. It has a huge 5.9’’ screen with the same old IPS LCD display at Full HD resolution and is covered with 2.5D glass. It is powered by Hisilicon Kirin 960 SoC with Mali-G71 MP8 GPU. Since Huawei itself manufactured the new SoC, it is better optimized for the Mate 9. This will most likely result in fluid performance like we see on Apple’s iPhones or so the company claims. According to Huawei, a machine learning system has been implemented to analyze user’s app usage that allows the processors to be used efficiently.
Mate 9 offers improved camera performance with Leica branded dual camera (20 MP+ 12 MP) with Optical Image Stabilization(OIS). The camera is capable of taking 4K videos. There is also a dual tone dual LED flash included. It has a 4000mAh battery with ‘Super Charge’. The phone is supposed to provide 3.5 hours of playback with only 10 minutes of charging.
HIGHLIGHTS OF MATE 9:
- 5.9’’ IPS LCD display, 1080X1920 resolution(373 ppi)
- Kirin 960 SoC( 4 Coretex-A73 cores, 4 Coretex-A53 cores) with Mali-G71 MP8 GPU
- 4GB LPDDR4 RAM + 64GB UFS 2.1 storage (Expandable)
- Rear Dual Cameras (20 MP +12 MP) f/2.2, OIS, dual LED flash
- 8 MP front facing camera, f/1.9, autofocus
- 4000mAh battery, SuperCharge

- Fingerprint sensor
The phone will be available in Black, Space Gray, Moonlight Silver, Champagne Gold, Mocha Brown and Ceramic White. Huawei Mate 9 will cost €699 ($776) and will be available in number of Asian and European countries. So sooner or later, we can expect Huawei Mate 9 in Nepal as well 🙂
