The new Huawei Mate 9 is finally out and Huawei fans are delighted to see the device meeting the standards of its predecessors. Coming from a place where competitive specs met affordable prices, Huawei has risen in the smartphone market and is now a force to be reckon with when it comes to device manufacturers. That is why the Mate 9 is released as a potential contender for the best handset of its generation.

Design and Display

The names for the different colors available for the device are quite extravagant, as users can choose from Space Grey, Moonlight Silver, Ceramic White, Champagne Gold and Mocha Brown.

The size of this device is probably meant to match the level of anticipation that surrounded it. Other than that, users can expect a very good build that gives off a premium vibe thanks to the full body metal design which is also nice to grip and doesn’t slip out of your hand.

The size of the handset is justified by the size of its screen. With a 5.9 inch 1080p display, the Huawei Mate 9 has no option but to be rather large. The size of the unit is still far from daunting however, as most people will be able to manage it.


The Mate 9 isn’t just looks. It hosts a 2.4 GHz octa core processor. The unit is a Kirin 960 and is coupled with 4 GB of RAM. In terms of internal storage space, the phone offers 64 GB but can be extended through a mciroSD. In terms of graphics processing, it uses the Mali-G71 chip.

The device is built around offering performance without heavy impact on the battery, which is a 4000 mAH unit. Performance and endurance are also enhanced by the OS, which is Google’s Android Nougat skinned with Huawei’s EMUI.
