There was an earlier rumor about Mate 9 pricing that had more realistic prices (~$7xx for the top-end model), but also had a much higher price (maybe ~12xx) for a bundle that included their new smartwatch. This $1300 price HAS to be a bundle. No way they'd more than double the price from last year's Mate.
Cool down the price is wrong and never be official confirmed don't believe me? You will see in the very next days how right I was cheers
No smartphone should cost as much as this. Well IF this is the price, i'm hoping for a ridiculous high end spec sheet. 256 GB storage, 8 GB RAM, Dual 20 mp cam, 16 mp front cam, waterproof, 4k display or any other things. Feel free to add more to the list.
Cheap Chinese company trying to become premium brand and charge a whopping USD1300?
Better get lost.
Huawei doesn't have any idea what they are doing.
nik.007, 24 Oct 20162016- the year of exorbitant & ridiculous pricing (Xperia X, Zenfone, HTC Desire 10, Pi... moreAlso the year of flagship like phones like the incredible Oneplus 3 that is pretty much the same as those flagships but costs only ÂÂÂ€399 lol...best phone 2016 price/performance/quality.

Me: "Hey, I just bought a $1300 phone"
Frd: "What is it?"
Me: "It's a Har...weee. Wait...Hua Wai, whatever the name"

2016- the year of exorbitant & ridiculous pricing (Xperia X, Zenfone, HTC Desire 10, Pixels, Mi Note 2, and now this)
1300$ for 2x specimens ? It will have bigger camera sensor then Nokia 808 ?
41 megapixel 1/1.2 in (10.67 × 8 mm)sensor... I know new phones with Nokia brand...it will not be truly Nokia...but i hope they use Carl Zeiss, xenon, big removable battery, good touch interface (or MeeGo :p).
Unfortunately, no matter how expensive an item is, there will always be a consumers with play money to spend.
Unbelievable! The pricing on the mate9 doesn't make sense to most or may be all of us, but believe me it is going to sell like hot cakes in China.... Move along apple/ iphone, you dont have any prestige value anymore....
Dang i can buy a a freaking car for this amount of money or Iphone 7 plus 256 gb variant.
