Huawei Mobile is gearing up for what could be the Chinese company’s biggest release yet. The Huawei Mate 9 will allegedly feature an iris scanner, a pair of powerful rear cameras and plenty of power under the hood, according to a new report out of China.

The device is expected to come in three variants. Two models will have 4GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB storage options, and one top model will come with 6GB RAM and 256 GB storage. It was also said that the Huawei Mate 9 is likely to include a USB Type-C support.

The gist of the Mate 9 story so far can be seen in yesterday's article on the matter. Along with the iris-scanning capabilities, it is also rumored that the top-end Mate 9 and Huawei Mate S2 with the Kirin 960 SoC, 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB storage may ship with the second-gen Huawei Watch in tow for 7,388 Yuan ($1,107) in China. This is quite a hike on the purported $705 price tag on the maxed-out variant sans the wearable. Since the original Huawei Watch is one of the better-looking examples to have graced the wearable market, though, here's hoping the Huawei Watch 2 will bring more excitement and elegance to the table.

The Huawei Mate 9 is apparently set to make its debut on November 8 so we’re still over a month away from an official unveiling. It’s also unclear if this device will make it to the U.S., though Huawei still seems content to focus on America’s mid-range market instead.
