The Huawei Mate 9 has been leaking out for quite some time now. The company’s flagship phablet has been long awaited by quite a few people who are looking to upgrade from the Huawei Mate 8 (or even the company's P9 devices), even though that’s still quite a capable smartphone. Judging by all the leaks that we’ve seen in the last couple of days, the Huawei Mate 9 will resemble its predecessor quite a bit, though there will be some changes included in this design, and it is possible that a second variant will be introduced as well, the so-called Huawei Mate 9 Pro, which we’ll talk about in a minute.
In any case, the company’s press event in Munich is about to start soon, and we have good news for those of you who want to follow what’s going on, as the company has decided to livestream the whole thing. If you take a look down below this article, you’ll notice that we’ve embedded a YouTube link where you can watch the Huawei Mate 9’s announcement live. The event is in Munich, Germany, but this is a global announcement event, so you can expect the whole event to be in English, which should make it possible for every one of you to follow the happenings. Now, we do have a pretty good idea as to what Huawei might introduce today, so let’s quickly go over it, shall we.
Both the Huawei Mate 9 and its ‘Pro’ variant had leaked quite recently. The two devices are actually rumored to ship with an almost identical spec sheet, but the ‘Pro’ model is said to sport a curved display, unlike the regular Mate 9 variant, and they’ll probably also look a bit different considering that the ‘Pro’ variant had leaked with a home button below the display, unlike the based Mate 9 model. Both devices are said to ship with a 5.9-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 6GB of RAM and more than one internal storage variant. Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 960 64-bit octa-core SoC will fuel the two devices, and you can expect to see two camera sensors on the back of the Mate 9 (Pro), 20-megapixel and 12-megapixel snappers.
