The Mate 9 from Huawei was officially unveiled this morning in Germany, bringing an end to the numerous
leaks and rumors we've heard swirling around. It features a 5.9″ FHD display and Android 7.0 “Nougat,” this could be a better alternative for Galaxy Note 7 owners who got burnt by the recall.
For specifications, beyond its huge display and operating system, the Mate 9 runs on a Kirin 960 octa-
core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage,
microSD slot, dual-band WiFi connectivity, fingerprint
reader, dual rear-facing Leica-branded cameras (20 megapixel monochrome + 12 megapixel RGB, F2.2,
OIS), 4,000mAh battery, and EMUI 5.0.
Looking past the specs, the software on Huawei’s latest
device has been upgraded, thanks to the introduction of EMUI 5.0. Not only are features changed, but the
overall look of the skin has been cleaned up. According to Huawei, “Through tireless research and testing, we
identified many scenarios in which it was easy for users to accidentally press the wrong thing, but with our slick new interface, these little glitches are a thing
of the past.”
Now, as for availability, the Mate 9 will be made available in China and Europe first, it should get to Africa in a few weeks . Huawei has not provided a specific date on when we might expect it here though .
