The upcoming flagship Mate phablet from the house of Huawei has been leaked and it seems that the company is stepping up its dual camera game. Yes, the first official teaser image of the Huawei Mate 9 has made its way to the Internet.
Mate 9 is the successor of the Mate 8, that was announced almost a year back. It was one of the best phablets by Huawei but was mainly sold in European countries. It didn’t even make it to India.
If we look at the above teaser image closely, then we can say that the upcoming Huawei Mate 9 will retain the Mate 8 design but will come with even smaller bezels, but it may not be so as Mate 8 had a class leading screen-to-body ratio of 78%.
The Mate 9 should also feature a 6-inch display but whether it will be the same Full HD panel or Huawei will go for a Quad HD display remains to be seen. The back panel also remains identical but this it will feature a dual camera setup, just like the Huawei P9 series and Honor 8. It will supposedly come with a dual 20 megapixel rear camera with dual-tone LED flash. The fingerprint sensor will also remain at the back but will be moved a bit lower so that the dual camera system can rest comfortably.
When it comes to the processing prowess of the Huawei Mate 9, it will be powered by the latest Kirin 960 chipset that should be at par with the likes of Snapdragon 821 and other flagship processors. We can expect 6 GB of RAM as well, if Huawei goes into an aggressive mode. In terms of connectivity, there will be a USB Type-C as most of the modern smartphones have adapted to this new standard. Lastly, we can expect the Mate 9 to rock a 4000 mAh battery or a battery with higher capacity under its hood.
Since, the promotional image of the Huawei Mate 9 has been leaked, we can expect the company to launch it in the next month or two.
