Leaked information about Huawei's Mate 9 phone suggest that it is set to take the place of Samsung's Note7.
(CCM) — On Wednesday, images of Huawei's forthcoming Mate 9 phone made their way online — and it seems the smartphone is poised to fill the void left in the wake of Samsung's Note7 fiasco. The Chinese tech company is gearing up for the big reveal of the flagship phone at an event in Munich, Germany on Nov. 3, where it is expected to show off two distinct body styles for the device.
Spec details, which also leaked online, have been confirmed by sources close to the matter but not by the company itself. These include a 64-bit, eight-core HiSilicon Kirin 960 system-on-a-chip, a 5.9-inch screen, and advanced memory features, which go all the way up to 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB storage capacity. The main camera is reportedly a dual-lens, dual-sensor Leica design, with the lenses and sensors set to see improvements at f/2.0 and 20 megapixels, respectively. One of the devices is even rumored to feature a curved display — reminiscent of Samsung's doomed smartphone — and QHD resolution to support Android's Daydream VR capabilities. The catch appears to be that this fully-loaded device may only see a Chinese launch by the company, whereas the second planned device will be released internationally.
