Huawei Mate 9 Unveiled, 5.9" Display and 4,000mAh Battery, Will Hit US Market


The Mate 9 from Huawei was made official this morning in Germany, bringing an end to the numerous leaks and rumors swirling around. The device, which should see a US launch at some point the future, is very large. Featuring a 5.9″ FHD display and Android 7.0 “Nougat,” this could be a solid option for phone-less Galaxy Note 7 owners who got burnt by the recall. 

For specifications beyond its huge display and operating system, the Mate 9 features 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. Detailed by 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, with US availability to follow at a later time. Huawei has not provided specifics on when we might expect it. For pricing, Huawei only provided the Euro price, which is €699.

Once Huawei announces specific US plans, we will update you.
