IFA 2016 is happening a few weeks from now and we know that a lot of companies will be launching their latest products. One brand anticipated to introduce its newest flagship device is Huawei with the Mate 9. A press event is already set and we’re with those many groups anticipating for a new Mate phone. Will we see a new Mate or a new P9 variant? We’re leaning more on a new Mate series phone.
Specs of the upcoming phone were recently sighted on GFXBench. The database has a listing of a new Huawei phone complete with a 5.9-inch display screen, 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, Mali-T880 GPU, HiSilicon Hi3660 octa-core processor, 64GB internal storage, 4GB RAM, 12MP camera, and an 8MP selfie cam. There’s no mention of battery size but the standard features are there_—accelerometer, barometer, Bluetooth, compass, GPS, gyroscope, lightsensor, NFC, pedometer, proximity, and WiFi. We’re assuming phone will be 4G LTE ready but we’ll know for sure on release date.
Listed on GFXBench is Android 7.0 Nougat and Google Play Edition running on the new Huawei phone. We hope to confirm everything on the list while in Berlin at the IFA event on September 1. GFXBench is a good source but it’s not always reliable. The specs listed on the page aren’t always final so they’re sometimes different at launch. We’ll let you know soon.
