No Curved Screen Version of Mate 9?

by Habeeb Onawole 0

The Huawei Mate 9 launch event is happening next week and the rumours and leaks have hinted that we will be getting a curved screen variant as well. However, a post on Weibo by an analyst detailing the suppliers of the displays and their sizes appears to indicate that there will be no curved screen variant.

Mate 9 Display

Sun Changxu says the Huawei Mate 9 will have a 5.88-inch Full HD LCD display supplied by JDI and LG. He also mentions that another screen, OLED to be specific, and with a 5.5” size will be supplied by Samsung. There is no mention of a supplier for a curved display fitting the screen size of the Mate 9 and the 5.5” OLED display is rumoured to be for the Mate S2 which we have not heard any details about.


So where did all the curved-display rumour come from? We’ll have to wait for the launch event to confirm if it has indeed been cancelled.

Renders of the curved variant, called the Mate 9 Pro have been ridiculed for looking like a Galaxy Note 7 rip off. But the Galaxy Note 7 is resting in peace now, so if another company decides to make something similar that doesn’t explode, shouldn’t we all be happy?
