Huawei Mate 9 Rumours: 20MP & 12MP Dual Leica Cameras and 50% Charge in 5 Minutes

by Habeeb Onawole 4

The Huawei Mate 9 is one of the most anticipated phones from Huawei before the year runs out and for several weeks now we’ve been getting tons of leaks. Today is no different, as new details of the flagship emerge.

The main detail consumers want to know about is the dual camera setup on the Mate 9. A previous leak revealed that the phone will feature 20MP dual cameras supplied by Leica, but the latest leak says it will be a 20MP and 12MP combo. This means that it’s either the official poster leaked online in the article is a fake or this new detail isn’t true as well. The info which was posted on Weibo also mentions that the front shooter will be an 8 megapixel sensor.

Alongside the info for the camera comes news of Huawei’s Supercharge Technology in the Mate 9 reported to be able to charge the phone to 50% battery capacity in only 5-minutes!!! The insanely fast charging technology was first announced last year with a video demo and the last we heard of it was when the Chinese manufacturer applied for a trademark in Europe.

The Huawei Mate 9 is expected to come in multiple variants. One is said to feature 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM, have 3 colour options and cost $480; another version will have the same RAM but double the storage and have 5 colours options. It will be priced at $585. A premium version with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of phone storage will cost $705.

Do remember that all these are rumours, hence they should be taken with a grain of salt.
