With being one of the first handsets to be powered by Android 7, the Huawei Mate 9 might be the answer to those who are still trying to find a new phone after returning their Samsung Galaxy Note 7 due to its battery issue. The new Huawei Mate 9 has a 1080p full HD display and comes in two designs. A Porsche-branded edition was also announced which was speculated to have nearly twice the resolution, according to BBC.

The Mate 9 has a 5.9-inch display into an all-metal body. Its screen resolution may be a little bit under than the Note 7 but it is evident that there will be enough pixels on the phone's screen to make the test look nice and crisp. Based on CNET's report, the phone also runs an octa-core Kirin 960 processor which the Chinese company claims to be the "fastest processor" the company has built. The company has also discussed about improving the phone's software so it will not have the tendency to slow down overtime.

With the company's attempt to get n line with others that are ahead of them like Samsung, one expert still thinks that Western consumers are still uncertain about the brand. Ben Wood from the CCS Insight consultancy said that Huawei's brand still does not have the status of Samsung yet and it's still trying to blend its brand with others with partnering with Leica for its camera and Porsche for its limited edition phone like Blackberry.

Since the Mate 9 has been announced, reports have been linking it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 since it also features a supercharging battery technology. Analysts also said that the Mate 9 is "best placed to benefit from Samsung's setback," as reported by BBC. The mate 9's standard edition will start at $774 price while the Porsche Design will cost $1,545. The phone can be fitted with a microSD card and four built-in microphones. Mr. Wood stated that the most significant change was with the phone's software which is designed to reduce the number of the number of taps needed to reach the phone's features.
