Huawei has been quite busy lately, the company had introduced three new flagship devices recently, the Huawei Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Design Mate 9. The Huawei Mate 9 and Porsche Design Mate 9 will be available in both China and internationally, while the Mate 9 Pro had been announced for the Chinese market only, though there’s still a chance it might roll out in some additional countries. In any case, all of these three smartphones are high-end devices, though the regular Huawei Mate 9 is probably the best-known one and the one that will sell the most, despite the fact the other two devices are quite interesting as well.
Having that in mind, the first Huawei Mate 9 teardown just surfaced online, courtesy of LaptopMain. First and foremost, it is worth mentioning that you’ll need a screwdriver, tweezers, small crowbar-like tool, suction cup and a guitar pick to disassemble Huawei’s new flagship phablet. The whole process starts by removing the SIM card tray, after which you’ll need to remove the two screws on the bottom of the phone, after which you should be able to open the phone using a suction cup. Next step is disconnecting the fingerprint module which is connected to the phone’s back cover, and from that point on you have access to the battery (which is built-in), and the rest of the Huawei Mate 9 internals. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see the whole teardown process in images, and if you need to disassemble the Huawei Mate 9 for whatever reason and need step-by-step instructions on how to do it, follow the source link down below.
The Huawei Mate 9 features a 5.9-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) IPS LCD display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. The phone is fueled by the HiSilicon Kirin 960 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 4,000mAh battery is included on the inside. There are two cameras available on the back of this phablet, 20-megapixel and 12-megapixel snappers with Leica’s lenses on top of them. Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed on the Huawei Mate 9, and on top of it, you get Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 5.0 skin. The device measures 156.9 x 78.9 x 7.9mm, while it weighs 190 grams.
