During their event today, Huawei unveiled the successor to the Mate 8, the Huawei Mate 9.

The device is one for the love of the big screen, featuring a massive 5.9-inch screen that sports a 1,080 x 1,920 pixel resolution, and around 373 pixels per inch.

The device itself has a curved backing, and is a little thick at 7.9 mm, however, that curve is said to make it more comfortable to hold.


On the back of the device, you’ll also find a fouth-generation high-speed finger printer reader that sits just below a pair of cameras that use the same Lecia technology as the Huawei P9 and other smartphones in Huawei’s range. These back cameras are made up of a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor for capturing the definition in black and white and another 12-megapixel sensor for getting the colour data for the image.

However, the Mate 9 does have some other camera tricks up its sleeve with face-detecting focus, optical image stabilisation, and 4K video capture.


It also comes with a massive 4,000mAh battery, 64GB of storage, a microSD card slot for expanding upon that storage, and 4GB of RAM that goes alongside Huawei’s self-built octa-core processor.

The Mate 9 will also run on Android Nougat with Huawei’s Emotional UI on top.

The Huawei Mate 9 will be priced at €699 (around £630) when it launches, however, we don’t yet know when that launch date will be.
