According to a couple of promotional posters, pre-sales for the Huawei Mate 9 are expected to begin November 4th in China. We expect to see the phone unveiled as soon as today in three variations. Those include 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage, and the top-of-the-line model with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
The Huawei Mate 9 is rumored to feature a 5.9-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The home-grown Kirin 960 chipset is under the hood, and we should see a Leica built dual camera setup (20MP and a 12MP) on the back of the phone. Android 7.0 will be pre-installed, with Huawei’s Emotion UI 5 running on top.

The unit carrying 4GB RAM/128GB of flash storage is said to sell for the equivalent of $585 USD. The top price of $705 USD is expected for the model with 6GB RAM/256GB of flash storage.
