We’re starting the final stretch of the year, and Chinese manufacturer Huawei has yet to unveil a new flagship to power their hi-end sales well into the holidays. That’s set to change in the next few weeks, if reliable tipster Evan Blass and tech site Venturebeat is to be believed though – the company is gearing up to release not one, but two flagship phones.
The Mate 9 will be Huawei’s next big thing, and there will be two versions of the new flagship – Standard and Pro. The regular version will come with a flat, full HD 5.9-inch display, along with a premium metal body, dual cameras with Leica branding, a Kirin 960 chipset along with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage.
The Mate 9 Pro, on the other hand, will have a 5.9-inch QHD display that has a curved side. It’ll still be powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 960 silicon, and will have dual Leica-branded cameras just like the standard version. There’s rumors of a version that’ll sport 6GB of RAM and 256GB of expandable storage, but just like everything in this article, take that particular rumor with a grain of salt. No solid date yet when the new phones will make an apperance, but expect Huawei to make a big splash to capitalize on their Korean rival’s mistake ASAP.
