Huawei Mate 9 Is Coming To The US, High Sales Anticipated

Huawei has unveiled its latest flagship, the Mate 9, and it will be coming to the U.S. The new flagship from the Chinese smartphone maker appears to be a smarter smartphone.

The Verge reports that the Mate 9 is Huawei's new top-of-the-line product and is pitched to customers who are looking to get the most out of their phone. The Mate 9 features a 5.9-inch full HD display with a rear dual-camera system, a fingerprint sensor, and 4GB of RAM.

The latest flagship also comes with 64GB internal memory, 4,000 mAh battery, USB Type-C, and Huawei's own Kirin 960 processor. The Mate 9 also has a sleek and solid unibody metal design that makes it feel like a high-end device.

According to Engadget, Huawei has made smart moves in designing the Mate 9. Chief among those is the streamlining of its custom interface, thanks to the hiring of a former Apple director to design its phone software.

Though the Mate 9 is a big phone, it feels smaller and light, making it manageable to hold. It also has bright and punchy screen, which is good considering the smartphone is also Daydream VR-compatible.

One smart feature that the Mate 9 has is that Huawei is using a machine-learning algorithm to prevent the smartphone from running slowly over time. The algorithm would look for patterns in how the user uses the Mate 9 and the smartphone will adjust accordingly.

Huawei said the Mate 9 also uses a specific kind of storage system that keeps saved bits from getting fragmented. This will also help in better performance down the road.

Huawei will also be launching the Mate 9 with a luxury variant, the Porsche Design Mate 9. The limited edition device features better specs with 6GB of RAM, 256GB internal memory, and a 2K resolution screen.

The Porsche Design Mate 9 is also curved, like Samsung's Galaxy Edge series. The luxury variant is priced at €1,395 ($1,549) while the Mate 9 is priced at €699 ($776).

The Mate 9 will first launch in several Europe and Asian markets. The flagship phone will be launched in the U.S. as well sometime in the future.
