Huawei announced its latest flagship called the Huawei Mate 9 probably a month ago and it has gained a lot of appreciation and love from all over the world. Being the Third largest Smartphone Manufacturer worldwide, Huawei definitely needs to bring any of its latest device to US and India soon as possible because of the tremendous market here!
Although we received a report last week stating that the handset’s launch would be “rocky” due to carrier challenges, we are now getting word from the famed leaker, Evan Blass, that the Mate 9 will be available for purchase stateside on January 6…
The Huawei Mate 9’s base model is packing the Kirin 960 processor, a dual rear-facing camera system, 4,000 mAh battery, 64GB of onboard storage, 4GB of RAM, and running Huawei’s skinned version of Nougat called EMUI 5.0. Additionally, the device is rather large as it has a 5.9-inch 1080p display.

As Huawei has had difficulty working with major US carriers in the past, it is most likely that an unlocked GSM version of the Mate 9 will be the only option available for purchase in the US. If true, the handset would only be compatible with AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s networks.
In it, you will find that we are rather fond of the device and believe that it is worth purchasing. There is currently no official word on pricing for the US model but the phone is currently available in Europe for €700, which equates to roughly $750. That lands it in direct competition with devices such as the Pixel, Galaxy S7 Edge, and the iPhone.
The Huawei Mate 9 never fails to impress you in the first look and soon after, you fall in love with it. Huawei is all set for the announcement and all we can do right now is wait till then and relax! Also TekhDecoded made a comeback today after almost 2.5months of in-activity!
