Ever since the release of the Google Nexus 6P, Huawei has grown in stature as a brand and as for now, the device that is dominating the rumor mills is the Huawei Mate 9.
A successor to the Huawei Mate 8, the Mate 9 is expected to be unveiled somewhere in the coming weeks, probably before the end of next month. In fact, the Chinese OEM could be ready to announce the device at its coming event to be held on November 3rd in Munich, Germany. Of course, it is just the expectations of many that is leading to the raveling of many leaks associated with the Huawei Mate 9.
Huawei has not yet confirmed anything regarding this new Mate 9 rumor, however, the numerous leaks doing rounds can confirm that the device is indeed coming, especially if the sources of the leaks are observed. Recently, famous leaker Evan Blass came in with images of what he thinks are two variants of the Huawei Mate 9 – a flat screen model and a curved dual-edge variant like what you see with the likes of Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy Note 7.
Now, new images of the same phone have once again surfaced, but this time showcasing the rear of the two models. According to the images, there are two color variants of gold and rose gold. For starters, the rose gold variant is smaller in size than its gold counterpart. In addition, the camera module and fingerprint scanner appear more rounded on the larger model as opposed to the rectangular-shaped designs on the smaller Huawei Mate 9 variant.
The gold model also has the LED flash on the right side of the lens while the same appears on the left side of the lens for the smaller model. Another difference is the location of the laser autofocus, where it has been combined together with the LED flash on the rose gold variant while the gold variant has it on the left side. In case you hadn’t noticed, the images also show a difference in the logo of the phones, where the larger model has the full Huawei logo while the smaller version has the “Huawei” name alone.
Whether or not Huawei Mate 9 will take a similar approach as to what Samsung did with the Galaxy S7, where the smaller variant has a flat screen as compared to the larger S7 Edge that comes with a curved dual-edge screen, is still unknown. But what is quite clear is that the Mate 9 will indeed come in two variants.
