Huawei is preparing to announce its latest Mate lineup, complete with a Huawei Mate 9 Pro model that features a curved dual-edge display. Huawei is going to hold its launch even on November 3 in China and it has released a teaser poster on its official Weibo page.

Huawei is believed to offer two versions of the smartphone: a standard Mate 9 and dual-edge curved Mate 9 Pro.

Huawei Mate 9 will feature a 5.9-inch 1080p screen, USB-C port interface, and said to come in two memory configurations with the higher one up to 6GB of RAM with up to 256GB of internal storage. There's also a dual camera setup with 4X optical zoom.

Of course there will be cheaper models in the series, and these still look set to come with the dual rear camera configuration, an 8 megapixel front camera, a fingerprint scanner, 3.5mm audio jack, ‘SuperCharge‘ fast battery charging, Android 7.0 Nougat on board coated with Emotion UI 5 on top, and support for Google's Daydream VR platform.

With the Galaxy Note 7 now out of the running and the Huawei Mate 9 Pro packing in plenty of cutting edge technology, there's likely to be plenty of demand for Huawei's phablet range this year. Although we hope that the pricing for the smaller memory Mate 9 Pro models is a little more reasonable.
