Huawei’s new Mate 9 Pro is shaping up to be priced outrageously


Huawei’s flagship “Mate” lineup of devices may be seeing two new additions in the near future. Rumors have started cropping up which suggest the Huawei Mate 9 won’t be the only new smartphone announced, as the Huawei Mate 9 Pro is also expected to arrive on the market.

VentureBeats is reporting that the devices will feature the same specs except for the displays. Both the Mate 9 (codenamed Manhattan) and the Mate 9 Pro (codenamed Long Island), will feature a 5.9-inch display, the HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor, 4GB of RAM, and will include storage options between 64GB and 256GB. Additionally, both devices are expected to feature 4x optical zoom and a dual-lens camera that was included on the Huawei P9.


The difference in displays comes in regards to the Mate 9 Pro possibly featuring a curved display, similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge. The Mate 9 Pro will also feature a 1440 x 2560 QHD display, while the Mate 9 will feature a FHD display. That’s not where the differences between these two devices stop, however, as only the Mate 9 Pro is also expected to be Daydream-ready.


You’re probably reading along thinking that the Mate 9 Pro is probably the way to go, but there may be a bit of a catch. @evleaks has revealed that the Mate 9 Pro may be priced at $1,300. That alone is enough to scare everyone away, but we’ll have to wait and see how everything plays out to see if Huawei follows through with this.
