Speculated Huawei Mate 9 announcement moves up to November 3 in Germany
The world’s third most popular smartphone vendor, though China-based, is getting big across Europe and North America too, seemingly taking a particular liking to German press events after unveiling the mid-range Nova and Nova Plus at IFA 2016 in Berlin.
Munich, the nation’s third largest city, and the capital of Bavaria, will apparently host Huawei’s next big product announcement, confirmed to take place on November 3 as opposed to the 8th, starting at 2pm CET.
While we have every reason to believe the date and venue are the real deal, and the highly anticipated Huawei Mate 9 is clearly the prime suspect for a release in time for the holiday season, we’ve seen no actual event invites to corroborate intensifying gossip, and the phone’s identity obviously remains under wraps.
In other words, nothing’s certain until it’s certain, but if you’re wondering why Huawei might return to Germany already, it’s probably to officially extend and build up that high-profile Leica partnership.
In addition to an even better dual rear-facing camera than P9’s snapper, the gargantuan Mate 8 sequel should also stand out courtesy of an all-new Kirin 960 processor, massive battery, super-high-res screen, relatively low starting price, up to 6GB RAM, and a top-shelf 256GB storage configuration.
