The Huawei Mate 9 is Huawei’s upcoming flagship phablet, and a direct successor to the Huawei Mate 8 which was introduced back in November last year. That being said, we’ve seen tons of Huawei Mate 9 rumors and leaks already, though some of those leaks surfaced a couple of months ago, so we wonder how accurate they are. Well, a new Huawei Mate 9 rumor just surfaced, and it does seem plausible, though we’ll let you be the judge of that, read on.
According to this rumor, the Huawei Mate 9 will be introduced on November 8th in China. In addition to that, this rumor also says that four variants of this phablet will be available. The two basic versions of the Huawei Mate 9 will, allegedly, ship with 4GB of RAM, the more affordable one will offer 64GB of internal storage, while the more expensive one will ship with 128GB of native storage. These two models are said to cost 3,399 Yuan and 3,899 Yuan, respectively. Now, the high-end model will utilize 6GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage, while it is said to cost 4,699 Yuan. That being said, it seems like the fourth variant Huawei will sell is going to come bundled with the Huawei Watch, and that variant of the Mate 9 will also ship with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Considering that a Huawei Watch will be a part of this offering, Huawei will, allegedly, ask you to pay 7,388 Yuan here.
The Huawei Mate 9 is rumored to become available in 9 color variants, Amber Gold, Amber Gray, Ceramic White, Champagne Gold, Enamel Gloss Black, Mocha Gold, Moonlight Silver, Rose Gold and Sky Gray. Android 7.0 Nougat is expected to ship out of the box, and on top of it, you’ll get Huawei Emotion UI (EMUI) 5. Pressure sensitive display is also a possibility here, and the device is expected to sport an all-metal design. Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 960 64-bit octa-core SoC is probably going to fuel all the aforementioned Huawei Mate 9 variants, while we still don’t know what camera sensors to expect on the Mate 9, though Leica’s lense(s) will probably be utilized here, as per Huawei’s partnership with the company.
