Another leak has made its way to the web. Thanks to Evan Blass, we are able to see renders of Huawei’s new Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro.

This is a pretty intense week in terms of leaks. This time we got our hands (kind of) on two renders of Huawei’s upcoming smartphones – the Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro, that are going to be announced on November 3rd in Germany.
Both new smartphones will be made of metal, something that Huawei is making us used to in their high-end models. Comparing the two devices, it is visible that the Mate 9 Pro has a curved screen, some kind of home button below the screen and a different placement of the elements on the front. Thankfully, Huawei is not getting rid of the 3,5mm headphone jack, which is clearly visible on both renders, with an IR blaster next to it. On the back are the dual cameras, a fingerprint scanner, a microphone, a dual tone flash and the laser auto-focus unit. On the bottom is the USB Type-C connector and two speaker grills (hopefully with two speakers). All of this will be available in 6 different colour versions.
Both devices will feature Huawei’s Kirin 960 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM (the latter only available in the 256GB version) and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. The phones have 5,9″ displays with Full HD in the cheaper model and QHD in the more expensive one. On the camera side, the devices are rumoured to feature the same dual camera unit as the Huawei P9 (some sources suggest a higher resolution and optical zoom). The phones are expected to come with Android 7.0 Nougat preloaded, skinned with Huawei’s Emotion UI. Also, the Mate 9 Pro will support Google’s Daydream VR.
