Say hello to the new Hauwei Mate 9,reports have it that this new design is "most impressive things Huawei has done over the years."
The Mate 9 comes with an enormous 5.9-inch, 1080p LCD screen. The Mate 9 is also light too and therefore has the ability to fit into a Daydream VR-compatible headset comfortably.
The device camera is said to take some decent photos though, and covering the monochrome sensor does lead to a poorer and less color-balanced snap, the camera definitely produces good image processing and quality enhancement on board thanks to having two lenses on the Mate 9.
It's an octa-core affair paired with 4GB of RAM and an octa-core Mali graphics processor. The smartphone bears a dual rear camera setup designed in collaboration with Leica, which is certainly the highlight feature.
The new Huawei Mate 9 interface looks really clean/neat and is also easy to understand. It is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 960 octa-core SoC with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.4GHz, and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz.
Looking at the back, the fingerprint scanner rests nicely where your digit lands, and the sharp combination of metal and glass that makes up the frame of the new Mate feels pretty solid in the hand.Huawei Mate 9 SpecificationDIMENSIONS:
