Not to be outdone by fellow Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi, Huawei is expected to release their flagship phablet, the Huawei Mate 9, on November 8, just over a month after the unveiling of the premium Mi 5S phone.
Aside from the supposed unveiling date, rumored variants of the Mate 9 phablet were posted on Weibo, detailing several RAM and internal storage configurations.
Unbox reported a week ago that the Huawei Mate 9 might be delayed until the last month of 2016, according to a Chinese industry analyst. Fortunately, for Huawei fans, the premium phablet’s unwrapping has been supposedly bumped a month earlier.
