As you probably already know by now, Huawei has just introduced two new flagship phablets, the Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Porsche Design. We already have plenty of content on the site, including the announcements of both devices, their specs, etc. That being said, the company teased great battery life on their new devices a couple of days ago, they’ve actually released a promo video in which they interviewed people to see how important battery life is to them, and at the end of that video they dropped a Mate 9 battery teaser. So, what do these two devices have to offer in terms of battery? Well, let’s find out, shall we.
These two devices are rather big, especially the Huawei Mate 9 which ships with a 5.9-inch panel. The Huawei Mate 9 comes with a 5.9-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, while the Mate 9 Porsche Design features a 5.5 QHD (2560 x 1440) curved AMOLED display. Huawei did not include a larger battery in the Mate 9 Porsche Design because its display is smaller than the one on the Mate 9, even though it is much sharper. Both of these smartphones come with a 4,000mAh battery, and it's worth noting that the battery packs are not removable. Now, both of these devices also offer what Huawei calls ‘SuperCharge’, which is a fast charging technology, of course. According to the company, SuperCharge can charge up the Huawei Mate 9 devices from 0% to 100% in 90 minutes, and the two devices actually use a Type-C USB 2.1 port on the bottom in order to connect to the charger.
The Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Porsche Design are fueled by the HiSilicon Kirin 960 64-bit octa-core processor, which is Huawei’s in-house chip. This processor was recently introduced, and it ships with the Mali-G71 MP8 GPU. The 20-megapixel (Monochrome) and 12-megapixel (RGB) camera sensors are placed on the back of the Mate 9, and they come with Leica’s lenses on top, just like the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus handsets. The Huawei Mate 9 packs in 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, while the Mate 9 Porsche Design comes in a 6GB RAM + 128GB storage combo, and is also a limited edition smartphone, unlike the Huawei Mate 9.
