China’s Huawei announced at the ongoing CES 2017 that the Mate 9 would be made available in the US market. The phone will come with Leica branded dual lens cameras.

As for the pricing, the Mate 9 will go for $600 apiece. While it’s something you don’t expect to pay for an Android flagship these days, it’s the camera tech that Huawei are betting big on… and thus the asking price.
