An alleged Huawei Mate 9 prototype has been caught on the GFXBench benchmark database, revealing an unannounced Kirin SoC under the hood.

As per the listing on GFXBench, the Huawei phone has a 5.9-inch display that has full HD (1920x1080 pixels) resolution and 5 finger gesture support. Besides as per the listing, it has HiSilicon Hi3660 (Cortex A53) 2.6 GHz octa-core processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage out of which 52GB is reserved for the users, ARM Mali T880 GPU and Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. In the listing there is no information about its battery or expandable memory, but the standard features are there — accelerometer, barometer, Bluetooth, compass, GPS, gyroscope, lightsensor, NFC, pedometer, proximity, and WiFi. We’re assuming phone will be 4G LTE ready but we’ll know for sure on release date.

After unveiling the Huawei Mate S2 with pressure sensitive display, Huawei also launched the Huawei Mate 8 in November last year. The device came with flagship specifications build into an Aluminum build body. It is the first device to be powered by the in-house Kirin 950 octa-core processor. While the Mate 9 can be expected to launch in the second half of 2016, now the latest rumors reveal few specifications of the device.

While the Kirin 950 lacks the enough power to compete against the Snapdragon 820 & Exynos 8890 chipsets, we expect the Huawei to do better with the upcoming Kirin 960 chipset. The device also comes equipped with 20MP dual rear cameras. Recently launched Huawei P9 and P9 Plus came with 12MP dual rear camera. The upcoming Huawei Honor 8 also sports 12MP dual rear cameras.

While some reports suggested earlier this year that the Mate 9 would be unveiled at Huawei’s IFA press conference, more recent reports claim this is not going to be the case.
