Huawei Mate 9 To Launch At 2016 IFA Event; In-Depth Review
Huawei is said to be joining IFA which would be coming the first week of September. There is much speculation that the company would be launching the Huawei Mate 9 on that event. Already a teaser is out about the Mate 9, which indicates that its release would be quite near.
IFA 2016 would be happening on September 2 in Berlin this year. Before the said event, Huawei will likely unveil its new smart phone, the Mate 9. The unveiling will happen on September 1 at 10:30 am CEST, according to Phone Arena. In the U.S. that would be 4:30 am ET.
What would be coming to the Huawei Mate 9 is of much interest. Analyst Pan Jiutang speculates that the new Huawei smart phone will likely have the Kirin 960 processor. A benchmark of the Mate 9 at AnTuTu seems to confirm this. In the benchmark it reveals that the Mate 9 will have an octa-core CPU, which is what the Kirin 960 is.
GSM Arena also reports that the Huawei Mate 9 will likely have 64GB internal storage and 4GB RAM. It will also have Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Its rear camera is slightly unclear though, as a benchmark says that it will be 12MP though a rumor says it will likely have 20 MP. 12MP was the camera resolution of the Huawei P9, so the Mate 9 might just follow that.
Leaked renders show that the Mate 9 will have a rear fingerprint scanner. The rear camera will have LED flash and laser autofocus. On the front it will have an 8MP camera. Specs of the Huawei Mate 9 might still change though prior to its release.
Aside from the Mate 9, Huawei is also said to be unveiling a sub-brand aimed for the mid-range market, as Science World Report says. Huawei Executive Kevin Ho has said that this sub-brand would cater more to the mid-range segment, which is where most consumers are from. This segment is also the most lucrative one in the smart phone industry. Huawei does have a sub-brand already in the Honor line of smart phones.
People are eagerly anticipating what Huawei would be bringing out on September 1. Huawei aims to be a major player in the smart phone industry and is aggressively targeting the important mid-range market. The Huawei Mate 9 hopes to capture at least part of the large smart phone market and bring Huawei closer to the industry's big players.
