Huawei Consumer Business Group has unveiled its newest addition to the Mate series, the Huawei Mate 9, in Dubai.
In an event, held at the Westin Mina Seyahi, David Wang, Huawei CBG UAE country manager, revealed the Huawei Mate 9, which inherited a similar design to other devices in the Mate series. The device shows a 5.9in" display with a 1080p resolution and it is 7.5mm thick, plus it holds 64GB of storage, a fingerprint scanner on the back and a dual-SIM slot.
Wang highlighted that the device promises a revolutionary Android experience, along with fast computing performance, safety features and new SuperCharge technology.
The Huawei Mate 9 includes a 4000mAh high-density battery that is linked to the promoted Supercharge technology. This technology increases battery life to provide over two days of uninterrupted performance, plus it supports 5A fast charging where 20 minutes of charge will bring enough power to watch two full movies.
With smartphone safety making recent headlines, Huawei has included Super Safe 5-gate protection, which monitors voltage, current and temperate in real-time to eliminate any potential hazards.
Building on the success of Huawei's Mate 8 and P9, the Mate 9 features the premium Kirin 960 chipset along with Huawei's Machine Learning Algorithm, which Huawei aims to deliver an ongoing fast experience even after 18 months of continuous use.
With the Kirin 960, the CPU delivers multi-core performance among all smartphone SoCs, while reducing power consumption by 15% and the GPU boats a 180% performance uplift, and a 40% improvement in energy efficiency compared to its predecessor.
Huawei has also reimagined the Android experience with the introduction of EMUI 5.0, with this, the device becomes more intelligence and efficient as it gradually understands its users behavioural patterns. This in return will ensure that the most used applications are given priority concerning system resources.
