Huawei’s much rumored Mate 9 will be releasing in December if media reports are to be believed. Meanwhile, an alleged teaser of the Huawei Mate 9 has also surfaced on Weibo as per which the phone will feature HiSilicon’s Kirin 960 SoC and dual 20 megapixel rear-facing cameras. The cameras could also have OIS (optical image stabilisation) feature.
However, some claimed that the poster is a fake one as it carries an image of Mate 8.
If true, Huawei’s Mate 9 could be among the first devices to be powered by HiSilicon’s Kirin 960 SoC. The Kirin 960 chipset is said to consist of four Cortex-A73 cores and four low-power Cortex-A53 cores. The chip is also expected to be manufactured using the 16nm process, just like its predecessor, Huawei Mate 8.
Recently, reports of Huawei Mate 9 surfaced online which claimed that the Mate 9 is coming with a dual camera setup with sensors made by Leica. The dual camera setup on the Mate 9 is expected to come with optical image stabilization (OIS), laser autofocus and analog zoom.
