Huawei in November launched its high-end smartphone - Huawei Mate 9 - at an event in Munich. At the time of launch, the Chinese mobile company had revealed only the 4GB RAM option with 64GB of inbuilt storage. Apart from that no other storage variant was revealed by Huawei. Now it seems that the company has started selling another Huawei Mate 9 variant that houses 6GB of RAM along with 128GB of inbuilt storage, as it has been listed on multiple third-party retailers.

Unlike the original Mate 9, this version of the smartphone does not sport the colossal 5.9-inch FHD display but a 5.5-inch Curved AMOLED screen per Amazon's listing. Interestingly, the resolution of the handset sees an improvement and is 2560 x 1440 pixels, vis-à-vis the original version's 1920 x 1080 pixels.

the Mate 9 is powered by the high-performing smartphone processor Kirin 960 chipset. This is fitted with an ARM Cortex-A73/A53 Octa-Core CPU and Mali G71 Octa-core GPU. The Mate 9 also uses Huawei’s Machine Learning Algorithm, and the EMUI 5.0 user interface, which streamlines user interaction with the OS. All these features combined allow for the optimization of the Mate 9’s software and hardware systems. This in turn makes it possible for the device to adapt to everyday phone usage behaviors, accelerating the processor so that the phone becomes faster and more efficient as time progresses.

There’s no word yet from Huawei in regards to an Australian release of the slightly smaller Huawei Mate 9 Pro, which packs in a dual curved edge screen with 2K resolution, and puts the fingerprint scanner on the front rather than the back.
