That being said, a new leak just popped up, and it gives us more info when it comes to Mate 9 variants and the phone’s pricing. If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll get to see a number of different variants of the Huawei Mate 9 (all of which leaked yesterday), and along with that, the image also reveals what spec combo will be included with each color variants. It seems like three different Huawei Mate 9 variants will be available, the 4GB RAM model will come in both 64GB and 128GB storage flavors, while the 6GB RAM variant will ship with 256GB of internal storage, and that will be the highest-end model.
