After a very long wait and a seemingly infinite number of leaks the Huawei Mate 9 has finally been made official.

As we all expected the new Huawei smartphone comes with a dual camera design on the rear in a larger 5.9-inch phablet design than their previous Huawei P9 model. In addition to the larger size the new Mate 9 features improved rear cameras with a single 20 megapixel sensor backed up by a second 12 mega-pixel sensor. With the two cameras the phone offers a 2 x optical zoom, along with the usual depth features.

The powerful rear camera design also has OIS and a hybrid autofocus system. It’s pretty much the perfect camera set up for a smartphone. Also on the rear is a fingerprint scanner, and 2 x LED flash.

As mentioned above the display is a 5.9-inch panel and get a front facing 8 mega-pixel F1.9 front camera just above it.

    Price is out of scale, but “if samsung or apple can, why shouldn’t we?”. It sounds high compared to usual chinese prices, but that’s a normal price for a premium international device… And, damn! It is one indeed! I would have liked they’d add something on the battery side, that’s the only thing unchanged during those 3 years, but whatever… Everything else really looks on point, also really curious to see how the camera performs, that different sensors size sounds a bit odd… Maybe I’ll consider it when the price drops, let’s say in 2 years or so ?
