The cats out of the bag if you saw our post about the local availability of the Huawei GR5 2017. Yes, it’s higher spec’d sibling, the Huawei Mate 9, has come along with it and is now being sold in the Philippines. The news comes from a Facebook post from Mr. Marlon Geronimo who took to our social media platform of choice to share the news. Here’s a quick refresher for the specs of the Huawei Mate 9.
Huawei Mate 9 Specs
- Kirin 960 Octa-Core Processor
- 4GB RAM
- 64GB internal storage, expandable via microSD
- 5.9-inch Full HD display, 1920 x 1080

Just like the highly successful Huawei P9 and P9 Plus, the Mate 9 will rock dual cameras that have been co-engineered by Leica with a slight upgrade to megalixel count. The Huawei Mate 9 is priced at Php 31,990. We will, of course, be trying to get our hands on a unit as soon as possible to give you our thoughts on Huawei’s latest flagship device.
Again a bug thank you to Mr. Marlon Geronimo for sharing this on Facebook.
