Huawei Mate 9 to Launch with Kirin 960 SoC & Android 7.0 Nougat



Huawei will be launching its new premium smartphone, Huawei Mate 9 on November 3rd in Germany. The device will come in two variants – Mate 9 with flat panel display and Mate 9 Pro with a curved display. Now the latest leaks all over from China revealed a bit more information about the device. The Mate 9 is said to sport a 5.88-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution while the Mate 9 Pro might come with a 5.5-inch AMOLED curved display. The devices will be running on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with customized EMUI laid on top.

The official teasers almost confirmed the device to be powered by the Kirin 960 octa-core processor which was recently announced in China. It is built on 16nm FinFET process with four Cortex A73 cores clocked at 2.4GHz  and four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. Coming to the graphics performance, the ARM’s Mali G71 MP8 GPU takes care of the gaming and animations on the device. The earlier leaked image by Evan Blass confirmed the Leica branded dual rear cameras. Now the latest infomration is that, the company is using a 12MP and 20MP sensors on the back of the device.

The cameras on the back are assisted by dual tone LED flash and laser autofocus. While the device will be available in different storage capacities with 4GB and 6GB RAM options, the below screenshots suggests the 6GB RAM variant to come with a whooping 256GB of storage. One variant of the recently announced Xiaomi Mi MIX also came with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. There is no information about the battery caapctiy of the device, butwe guess Huawei to come with its own fast charging technology. If the rumors are to be believed, the package includes a power adpater with 5V/8A output.


It comes with USB Type-C port and might include stereo speakers on the bottom edge. Though the fingerprint sensor is placed on back of both the devices, there is a physical home button on the front of Mate 9 Pro but missing on the Mate 9. The device offers dual SIM dual standby with 4G VoLTE support. The Kirin 960 SoC by default supports Cat.12 and Cat.13 LTE along with CDMA. With the quad carrier aggregation (4CA) on Kirin 960, the device might reach download speeds upto 600 Mbps. Take this details with a pinch of salt as the company is yet to official confirm all these information.

Last week, the company has launched its affordable smartphone p priced at 1299 Yuan (approx  $192 / Rs. 12,800). It came with a 5-inch HD AMOLED display and came with MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. The device comes packed with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. There is a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front with wide-angle lens. The Enjoy 6 is backed by a 4,100mAh battery that is mentioned to give 22 hours of talk time. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and might receive the Nougat update by the end of this year. With the fingerprint sensor and NFC, the Enjoy 6 can be used for authorizing mobile payments.
