Huawei has just announced two smartphones in Munich, Germany and they are the Mate 9 and Mate 9 Porsche Design. Although, as rumored before, there should be a Mate 9 Pro on the way but we didn’t see that — until today.
The Huawei Mate 9 Pro has just been launched in China and it is basically a Porsche Design on the inside.
Huawei Mate 9 Pro specs:
5.5-inch Quad HD display @ 2560 x 1440 resolution
2.5D curved glass
Kirin 960 octa-core processor
64GB/128GB internal storage
Expandable via microSD
Dual Leica rear cameras (20MP monochrome/12MP RGB sensors) with F2.2 aperture, OIS
8MP front camera with F1.9 aperture
Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.0
Gold, Rose Gold, Gray, Silver
Just like the Porsche Design, the Mate 9 Pro has a Quad HD display measuring 5.5 inches which is smaller than the Mate 9’s. Comparing the two, you can basically think about the same model just without the Porsche branding and premium price tag.
The Mate 9 Pro is priced at CNY4,699 for the 4GB/64GB option and CNY5,299 for the 6GB/128GB variant. As of its launch, it’s only limited to China with no word on outside availability.
