Huawei unveiled the Huawei Mate 9 and Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design only recently. Both devices feature AMOLED screens, Kirin 960 chips, and the second-generation Leica dual-camera setup. The Mate 9 packs a 5.9" flat screen of 1080p resolution, while the Porsche model has a smaller but higher-res 5.5" curved OLED screen of 1440p.
Just a day after the Mate 9 duo premiere we got a confirmation that another Mate 9 model is in the works - the Mate 9 Pro. It was indeed rumored even before the official premiere, but it never appeared on the stage in Munich.
Today, at a dedicated launch event in China, Huawei finally introduced the Huawei Mate 9 Pro side by side with the regular Mate 9 and Mate 9 Porsche Design. The Mate 9 Pro is exactly what has leaked before and what the fans hoped for - the Porsche Edition without the premium clothing and price tag.
The Mate 9 Pro, as expected, packs a curved 5.5" AMOLED screen of Quad HD resolution. It runs on the same Kirin 960 chip with either 4GB or 6GB RAM, and offers the second-gen Leica dual-camera setup. The phone also puts the fingerprint scanner on the front, just like the Porsche model.
It is yet to be determined whether the Mate 9 Pro has a hybrid dual-SIM/microSD slot or whether it won't take memory cards like its Porsche sibling.
The Mate 9 Pro is currently available for order in China only and there the fans can have it in gold, rose gold, gray, and silver. The price is set at CNY 4,699 ($686) for the 4GB+64GB flavor, which is about $110 more expensive than the regular Mate 9 with 4GB+64GB storage. Mate 9 Pro with 6GB RAM + 128GB storage costs CNY 5,299 or $775, once again $110 up from the Mate 9 with 6GB+128GB option.
There is still no information on the international availability and pricing, but we'll keep you in the loop if the situation changes.
