Huawei's current flagship phablet, the Mate 8, was launched in November 2015 and even though it's been a while since then, the device is still considered pretty powerful. With this in mind, the Huawei Mate 9 has been popping up in high number of online reports over the last couple of months, and has been even more present in the last two weeks, and this due to the fact that it won't be much longer until it officially sees the light of day. The company shared some teasers of the phone, and it additionally said that the Mate 9 will be launched on the 3rd of November during an event that will take place in Munich.
We've already stumbled upon some real life images showcasing the Huawei Mate 9. Now, there is a new image that appeared online, which comes alongside some extra details concerning the terminal. We're talking about a leaked render of the device, which actually shows nothing new because it has the same design we've seen so far. The smartphone is manufactured out of metal material, and you can notice the Huawei logo underneath the screen. The power button and volume rocker are both located on the right side of the phone, while the SIM tray is positioned on the left side.
Apart from the provided image, the source also mentions that the device will sport with a display that will surprisingly measure 5.9 inches instead of 5.7 inches, which is the size that has been rumored until now. In the software section, it looks like the Huawei Mate 9 will be running Android 7.0 Nougat right from the start, and the OS will be tweaked with the EMUI custom skin. When it comes to optics, the handset will most likely boast a 20 MP main camera according to the rumors, and today's source confirms the information.
Powering the Huawei Mate 9 will most likely be the manufacturers home made Kirin 960 CPU, which is the best processor ever produced by the Chinese company. Last but definitely not least, one of the teasers Huwei published a couple of days ago was focusing on the phone's battery life, so we expect a rather large battery capacity.
