The Marvellous Huawei Mate 9

Huawei

Chinese electronics manufacturer, Huawei recently launched the Mate 9 smartphone, an upgrade to the Mate 8 device that was released last year. While you may think that the two phones are quite similar thanks to the design, the Mate 9 has taken a big step up with some great new features. Here’s a look at everything you can expect from Huawei’s new smartphone.

Sporting a full-HD IPS touchscreen display of 5.9 inches, with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels, the Mate 9 is without a doubt visually stunning. The 2.5D glass has curved edges as well. The metal body is sleek and has buttons for power and volume placed on the right.

Driven by a 1.8GHz Kirin 960 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM and a Mali-G71 MP8 GPU (graphics processing unit), this phone is certainly powerful. A user will be able to comfortably multi-task and switch between gaming, browsing the internet and watching movies. Heavier android games like the Asphalt 8 should also perform smoothly and without any lag.

Placed on the top centre of the back panel is dual lens primary camera that is developed by Leica. With one a 12MP lens that has an aperture of f/2.2 and a second monochrome 20MP lens, this camera will produce stellar images that have crisp details. With features like wide aperture, bokeh, phase detection and a good depth of field, users will enjoy capturing images with this phone. There is also a secondary camera placed on the front, which is of 8MP and is sufficient for selfies and even voice calling.

Packed with 64GB of internal storage, this device has enough space for games, apps, photographs and even movies. For those who require more space, the memory can be expanded using an external microSD card of up to 256GB.

This device has a battery that has a capacity of 4000mAh and offers a battery life of easily two days with regular usage. However if you use 4G browsing, the battery will be cut down to approximately 20 hours. The Mate 9 has a quick charging capability and can deliver around 60 percent battery with just 30 minutes of charging, using a USB-Type C charger.

Connectivity options for this dual-SIM phone include Bluetooth, NFC, 3G, 4G, GPS and WiFi. There are also several sensors built into the device, such as a Proximity sensor, gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, magnetometer and an ambient light sensor.

The Huawei Mate 9 comes with the latest Android v7.0 Nougat OS. It is available in a range of colours including Champagne Gold, Black, Moonlight Silver, Space Gray, Ceramic White and Mocha Brown. Priced at approximately Rs. 52,000, this is undoubtedly a premium smartphone. While it is currently only available in China, the device is expected to launch in India very soon.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
