Huawei Mate 9 Lite official w/ dual rear cameras

Huawei’s latest flagship, the Mate 9, is an impressive yet expensive smartphone. Just like with the P9, the company also made a “Lite” variant of their new flagship and they kept the dual rear cameras.


The Huawei Mate 9 Lite silently made it through the company’s website. It’s listed with mid-range specs as expected including a full metal construction, 5.5-inch Full HD display topped with 2.5D curved glass, Kirin 655 octa-core chipset, fingerprint scanner, and a 3,340mAh battery. It runs Huawei’s EMUI 4.1 that is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.



Interestingly, Mate 9 Lite still has a dual rear camera setup just like its parent phone. Of course, it’s downgraded to keep the cost low. It has a 12MP + 2MP sensors with the main sensor having a phase detection autofocus and 1.25nm pixels. The secondary sensor will help create depth to the photo for bokeh effect.

    Masyadong magimik yang 2-camera set up na yan kung sa depth of field lang ung purpose. Bakit yung camera option ng zenfone 6 pixelmaster camera, kaya ang depth of field ng isa lang camera. Tapos nakita ko ung sample ng Mate 9, hndi maganda ang results. Kita ang editing between sa focused subject at blurred background.
