|New Huawei Mate 9 with Dual-Rear Camera Setup Arrives in PH for Php31,990|
After about two months of waiting since its global unveiling, the new Huawei Mate 9 has finally arrived in the Philippines.
The Mate 9 was first announced in November 2016, eight months after its predecessor, the Mate 8, had its local launch, and just a couple of days after the Huawei GR5 2017 arrived in the country. Now, without further delay, Huawei has brought its latest gem to the Philippine market.
Same with the Mate 8, it comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, but with a higher 2.4GHz HiSilicon Kirin 960 octa-core chipset than Mate 8's 2.3GHz Kirin 950. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS with Emotion UI 5.0.
Huawei's latest flagship device now sports a dual-rear camera setup that combines 20-megapixel monochrome and 12-megapixel RGB sensors with f/2.2, dual-tone LED and OIS. It's the same camera setup that is found on the P9 and P9 Plus. Meanwhile, at the front is an 8-megapixel snapper with f/1.9.
