A new image of Huawei’s upcoming Mate 9 has been leaked online, revealing a different camera setup from what was previously leaked.
This new image shows a dual camera setup with a single piece of glass covering both lens. The phone’s LED flash is also circular unlike the first leaked image. Another difference is the lack of laser focus which was present on the previously leaked image. The only feature common to both images is the position of the fingerprint scanner.
The leak also says the Mate 9 may likely launch with Huawei’s Kirin 960 processor. The Kirin 960 is an octa-core chip that uses the big.LITTLE architecture which will be made up of 4 Cortex A-73 cores and 4 Cortex A-53 cores. The Kirin 960 will have LTE Cat. 12 and support CDMA networks, making it the second kirin chip other than the Kirin 650 to have full network support. Its GPU will be the latest Mali-G71.
Other details mentioned says the Mate 9 will feature a 6” 2K display, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of built-in storage. It is said to launch with EMUI 5.0 which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
There is still no news on the pixels of the cameras and how they’ll work. We also have no idea of how much it will cost but the leak says date of launch may be October.
