New rumours suggest Huawei’s upcoming Mate 9, we’d reported on earlier, will launch on the 8th of November, 2016. The rumour reveals pricing information for the three variants of the phone that seem to be in the offing.
The top of the line variant, featuring 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, is expected to be priced at RMB 4,699 (USD 700). Two other variants of the phone are also expected – one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, and another with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage is expected to carry a price tag of RMB 3199 (USD 475) or RMB 3,399 (USD 505), depending on whether it is a Carrier edition or a phone which supports Chinese networks. The variant with 128GB of internal storage is expected to set you back by RMB 3,899 (USD 580 or approximately INR 38837).
Other key specifications, also revealed in rumours earlier, suggest the Huawei Mate 9 will be powered by the company’s own HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC. GizmoChina (via Weibo) had earlier reported Huawei was working with optics firm Leica to include a dual-camera setup on the Mate 9 and the Mate S2, with dual-OIS, laser autofocus, and optical zoom. The Huawei P9 has been talked about a lot, primarily owing to German camera manufacturer, Leica’s apparent involvement, in engineering the phone’s camera module.
