Huawei Teases Mate 9 Pro Capabilities With 35 Second Video Teaser
Huawei’s Mate 9 Pro is going to be unveiled during the first week of November in Germany, and to prep viewers on what they are in store for, the manufacturer has decided to provide a teaser video to showcase the improved capabilities of the smartphone.
Huawei Mate 9 Pro Teaser Video Places Emphases on Moving Forward
Compared to the previous family of smartphones, Mate 9 Pro is expected to pick up things where the Note 7 left off. Apart from running the company’s in-house Kirin 960, it is also the first SoC to feature Cortex-A73 cores and the first to be running ARM’s Mail-G71, which is also expected to be present inside the Exynos variant of Galaxy S8.
Minus the stylus, Mate 9 Pro is expected to come with a dual-curved edge display and a Type-C USB port to give you the impression that this is the phablet replacement you were looking for. In addition, the combination of powerful internals is evidence that Huawei Mate 9 Pro will be Daydream compatible, although to enjoy VR content, you will still have to purchase the $79 headset. The 5.9-inch screen size will be resonating a QHD display, but it’s not been detailed which form of underlying technology will be present in the display. Hopefully this time, the Mate 9 Pro will make a transition to AMOLED displays.
If you recall, Huawei always said that incorporating a QHD panel was useless, but it looks like the company might be swallowing its own works, most likely for the sake of VR. The large screen size will be able to accommodate a massive battery capacity, and the smartphone is said to be available in the 64GB-256GB internal storage variants. The highest configured model is also going to feature 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, but that is just overkill in my book.
Most importantly, Huawei Mate 9 Pro is going to feature the dual-camera sensor present in the company’s P9 and P9 Plus lineup of devices. So what’s going to be the price tag? Sources claim that it will retail for a whopping $1,299, but I believe that’s a farfetched statement.
