The Huawei Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro and Mate 9 Porsche Design were all released in China yesterday. While we had seen the duo of Mate 9 and Mate 9 Porsche Design earlier on when they both went official in Germany, the Mate 9 Pro was a new addition which was outed for the first time. We have got beautiful images of the Mate 9 Ceramic white and Mate 9 Pro Rose gold versions courtesy the guys at iT168.
The Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro are not similar in most aspects but the Mate 9 Pro and Mate 9 Porsche Design has a number of similarities. In simple terms, the Mate 9 Pro is a cheaper version of the Porsche Design, same design but lacking the Porsche branded logo. The Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro comes in different display sizes. While the Mate 9 has a bigger 5.9-inch 1080 pixel flat AMOLED display, the Mate 9 Pro features a 5.5-inch curved AMOLED display with a higher 2K resolution.
However one feature which stands out on both devices are the narrow black borders at the edge of the display. The borders are very much visible on the white ceramic version of the Mate 9 and Rose gold version of the Mate 9 Pro both on display here. That is because both versions come in white colors on the front panel.
If you think the black borders are a turn-off or deal breaker, then perhaps you should stick with the black variant of either the Mate 9 or Mate 9 Pro. The black borders won’t be very obvious since the front panel is black as well. That doesn’t in anyway reduce the beautiful, sleek designs of the Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro, though.
