Earlier today, Huawei unveiled their new Huawei Mate 9 smartphone, which builds upon the Mate 8 and adds a number of new features.

But they weren’t done there. They also made the surprise announcement of a Porsche Design version of the Huawei Mate 9, which will change a lot of the design elements of the Mate 9 and will move some features around a bit.

The design of the Mate 9 is very sleek, featuring an almost all-metal design, but with some plastic panels at the top and the bottom of the device. It also features a curved design, with curved edges on both sides of the screen.

One of the biggest differences between the normal model and the Porsche Design version is that this plating comes with a black finish, it also moves the fingerprint scanner from the back to the front of the device, just below the screen.

Porsche has also moved the LED flash and laser autofocus sensors to below the camera and they have added their own “pd” branding to the back of the device.

The rest of the specs are pretty much the same as the normal version.

The Porsche Design model of the Huawei Mate 9 will be priced at €1395 (around £1255) when it launches, however, it will only be available in limited numbers.
