Huawei Mate 9 Pro, Huawei Brings The Display Curve Series Matt at a Reasonable Price
Earlier this month, Huawei held an event to announce the renewal of its range of phablets with the new Huawei Mate 9. However the terminal did not only, he did it in the hand of the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design, a limited edition with screen curve in the purest style dual-edge of Samsung that It will cost a whopping 1,400 euros.
Obviously Huawei knows that its Porsche Edition is not for everyone and so has wanted to bring the Mate series with a new curved screen more affordable model that have called Huawei Mate 9 Pro. We tell you all the news about the new smartphone from Huawei and compared to the other models of the range.
Curved screen to take advantage of the absence of Note 7
When Huawei presented the duo Matt 9 we talked about if he had managed to take advantage of the gap left after the withdrawal of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and the truth is that with a matte 9 of panel plane and a Mate 9 Porsche Design at a prohibitive price none of the models approached enough to the rugged phablet of Koreans.
Now that Matt 9 series has become a trio, Huawei Mate 9 Pro is the model that is closest to the Note 7 thanks to the curved panel, Although he would still add software features and the stylus to get to emulate the proposal, but in any case, it is the only one who could replace the Samsung team, both in design and price, a detail which we will see later.
In addition to the distinctive curved dual-edge of models Samsung, Huawei Mate 9 Pro screen measures 5.5-inch diagonal and provides resolution QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels), which ranks it at the same level as the Mate 9 Porsche Design.
Also resembles the more expensive model in the range by the placement of the Start button with detector of footprints on the front, but in this case the finish of their housing does not have that black tone metallic, if you will not arrive in dorado, oro-rosa, silver and dark grey.
Thus it is with the new Huawei Mate 9 Pro series
Huawei did not want to make distinctions in terms of power and the three models assembled HiSilicon Kirin 960 with GPU Mali T720 chip, but what if there are differences in memory. The new Huawei Mate 9 Pro will come in two versions, to choose between 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB (same as the basic matte 9) internal memory and 128 GB with 6 GB of RAM, next to the Porsche Design, although with half capacity.
The cameras are also kept and Huawei bet on the combination of 12/20 megapixel rear Hybrid auto-focus, lens f/2.2 and videos 4K, while the front sensor stays with 8 megapixel camera and lens f/1.9.
Similarities are maintained in the operating system with 7.0 Android Nougat and Emotion 5.0 UI, the profile of connections and the 4,000 mAh with SuperCharge battery.

Huawei Mate 9 Pro, price and availability
As we said, the third member of the newly announced Mate series arrives to offer the curve display at a much more reasonable price than we saw with stamped Porsche Design Edition, and incidentally make this model still less sense.
Huawei Mate 9 Pro has been announced in China, where it will cost the equivalent of 639 EUR for 4/64 GB memory version, While the model of 6/128 GB will go up to 720 euros. Meanwhile the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design does a whopping 1.395 euros, but seeing the technical profile of the new Mate 9 Pro differences are reduced to the internal memory (256 GB) and a different finishing.
Currently Huawei Mate 9 Pro has been on sale in China, but its launch in more countries is not excluded. It is very likely that its price increases when landing on European soil, but certainly it will not arrive or to reach out to the Porsche Design.
