The Huawei Mate 9 Pro was rumoured even before the official unveiling of the Mate 9 and Porsche Design Mate 9 in Munich, but alas, it wasn’t introduced alongside these two devices. Now, however, Huawei has finally unveiled the Mate 9 Pro. In essence, it’s a more affordable alternative to the premium Porsche Design Mate 9.
Much like the Porsche Design Mate 9, the Mate 9 Pro has a 5.5-inch dual-curved 1440p AMOLED display, but it doesn’t have as much storage as the former, which packs a whopping 256GB storage. The Mate 9 Pro, on the other hand, comes with two storage options: 64GB and 128GB.
Other specifications of the Mate 9 Pro include a HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor paired with 4GB or 6GB of storage, a 4,000mAh battery, as well as a front-facing fingerprint sensor. Naturally, the Mate 9 Pro also has the Leica-certified dual-camera system on the back, which consists of a 20MP monochrome sensor and a 12MP RGB shooter. There’s an 8MP camera on the front of the device as well.
Then we have the retail prices of the Huawei Mate 9 Pro. The 64GB base model with 4GB of RAM goes for 4,699 Chinese yuan (about RM2,970) while the highest-end 128GB model with 6GB of RAM goes for 5,299 yuan (approximately RM3,345). As usual, it remains to be seen if the Mate 9 Pro will be launched in Malaysia.
