Initially we were a bit puzzled by Huawei’s choice to launch the new Mate 9 phablet in Munich, Germany, but the firm’s November 3 event revealed a special variant of the device which explains everything; the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design.
We’ve seen phone collaborations with Porsche Design before, the specialised branch of the German car manufacturer has collaborated with BlackBerry on multiple models featuring some pretty striking industrial design. However, this is the first time it has teamed up with Huawei specifically, and the results are pretty interesting to say the least; not only for the different visual design, but also because this model packs in some extra premium features.
So for starters, the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design is a bit smaller than the main model phablet, featuring a curved 5.5in display which uses AMOLED technology rather than the flat-screen IPS seen on the regular edition. It also has a QHD resolution instead of the regular Mate 9’s 1080p HD setup, giving a sharper 534ppi pixel density against the Mate 9’s 373ppi. While the Porsche Design edition retains the hefty 4,000mAh battery of its sibling, it has a thinner and lighter body at 7.5mm thick and a weight of 169g.
The internal hardware starts off similar, with the same Kirin 960 octa-core processor, however, the RAM is upped from 4GB to 6GB, and the onboard storage gets a boost from the regular edition’s 64GB up to 256GB – the only downside is it lacks the microSD slot of its stable-mate. On the software side it’s the same Android Nougat and Huawei Emotion UI package.
Meanwhile, the camera technology is exactly the same as the regular Mate 9; the second-generation dual-camera hardware from Huawei’s collaboration with another German brand; Leica. It uses a 20MP f/2.0 monochrome sensor paired with a 12MP f/2.2 colour sensor, an advanced image signal processor, dual-tone dual-LED flash, quad-hybrid autofocus, and hybrid 2x digital lossless zoom, while supporting 4K video.
Understandably this souped-up edition doesn’t come cheap. The handset, like its stable-mate, doesn’t have solid release dates confirmed yet but will be hitting retail later this year. It will be stocked by Porsche Design stores in Europe some time in late December with a price tag of €1,395. Porsche Design stores in other world regions (not the US though), and Huawei stores in Europe and Asia will have it in January 2017.
