A new Huawei handset has allegedly joined the company's lineup of phones that will sport a dual-camera setup for its main snapper located at the back. This new flagship, according to Pan Jiutang, a tech analyst from China, is going to be the Huawei Mate 9.

It gets even better as the latest rumors claim that the company is also working on a successor to the magnificent Huawei Mate 8. Dubbed the Huawei Mate 9, this device will pick up from where the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus left as far as the camera specs and processor are concerned, this time featuring a dual-camera setup with a massive 20MP sensor as well as a newer Kirin 960 SoC.

As it turns out, this may not be the case for the next chipset. Jiutang explained that the Cores inside the Kirin 960, specifically the Cortex A72, will be replaced by the next model Artemis Cores. This means the chipset will feature a combination of Cortex A53 and Artemis cores in an octa-core architecture.

As mentioned earlier, the recently announced Huawei P9 and P9 Plus have some amazing camera technology in the shape of dual-camera. Technically, the two have two 12MP sensors on the rear that ensure users get the best shots possible. Now, for the upcoming Huawei Mate 9, it is said that the Chinese OEM will stick to the dual camera setup, but step up the megapixel count to 20MP.

It is important to take note, though, that the details available right now are yet to be confirmed. With that in mind, it's best to just wait for further announcements coming from Huawei regarding the upcoming Mate 9 flagship.
