Huawei’s Mate 9 Finally Gets A Solid Release Date For Oz

Chinese smartphone player Huawei have nailed down the release date and availability of their latest flagship phablet, the Mate 9, for Australian customers.

Back in December, the company had the Mate 9 pegged for launch in Q1 of 2017. They’ve since narrowed that window down to February 7th.

The Mate 9 comes pretty heavily-equipped, boasting a Kirin 960 chipset, 4000mAh battery and dual-lens Lieca camera.

According to Huawei’s Richard Yu, “In developing the HUAWEI Mate 9, we started with a simple question – how can we improve every element of the smartphone experience?”

“We know that for today’s business users, a fast and functional smartphone is just the beginning. Consumers also want a gorgeous design and intuitive features, so we created new devices at the forefront of hardware and software innovation. The result is a device that is breathtakingly new, inside and out,” he says.

If you’re one of those burned by Samsung and on the look for a high-end phablet, it may be just what you’re looking for.

According to Trusted Reviews, “Fantastic battery life and Huawei’s best software to date make for an enticing phablet, but there remains areas where it can do better.”

Look for ChannelNews’ own review in the near-future.

It’ll be available from JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Optus and other participating retailers at an RRP of $999.
