Excitement seems to be at an all-time high regarding Huawei's upcoming Mate 9 flagship and understandably so, since it is expected to launch in an hour. To sweeten the deal even further, a couple of banners were spotted on the streets of China, stating that the eagerly-anticipated device will go up for pre-sale as early as tomorrow.

This probably relates only to the local market, likely leaving us folks over in the western markets with at least some waiting to do./p>
Powering the Mate 9 will likely be the home-grown HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC. Memory configurations are said to include a basic 4GB plus 64GB one, a 4GB plus 128GB and a top tier 6GB plus 256GB one. Preliminary prices suggest something in the ballpark of $480, $510 and $705, respectively.
