Huawei has released a teaser image which seems to confirm the launch of their new phablet, the Mate 9, during the Huawei event in Munich on November 3rd. Although the Mate 9 is not announced on the teaser we are almost sure that the Mate 9 will officially see the light outside China.
In the last weeks, rumors about the built-in hardware have increasingly been leaked, so we know already about what to expect from the Mate 9. The Mate 9 will come most likely in two versions on the market. Besides the Mate 9, a Mate 9 Pro is also planned. The Pro is designed to provide a higher screen resolution with qHD support. It is unclear at this stage yet whether the company will offer the Pro version outside the Asian market. According to rumors, the high-end superduper version of the Mate 9 Pro will have a pricetag of $1300.
Inside the Huawei Mate 9 a Kirin 960 SoC is expected to being used, which can rely on up to 6 GB of memory depending on the configuration that has been chosen. The internal memory will be available up to 256 GB. Also expected is the dual camera setup that Huawei has made together with Leica. This setup should support four times of optical zoom. Unfortunately no information about the maximum resolution has been shared. The front camera is designed to provide 8 MP.
