Huawei Mate 9, the latest flagship phablet from the company has been also launched at an event in Germany alongside the limited edition Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9. Lets find out its features below.

Unlike the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9, the standard Mate 9 is a more practical phone which the consumers can purchase. In the camera department, two Leica SUMMARIT lenses at the back – a 20 megapixel monochrome camera and a 12 megapixel RGB camera. It brings Huawei’s ISP into play and comes with Hybrid Zoom technology via which we can get 2x magnification. It has an octa-core Hisilicon Kirin 960 chipset clocked at 2.4 GHz along with IntelliSense i6 sensor hub and Mali-G71 MP8 GPU.
