New Leaked Render Shows the Mate 9’s Purported Back


Now that we have seen the Mate 9’s front, what about that back?

Here it is:


Even though this is an unconfirmed render and the Mate 9 may as well end up looking different, at this point, it is almost a given that the dual cameras at the back won’t be going anywhere in addition to the device having an all-metal premium build (read: no glass at the back).

The device is said to arrive in two variants, a standard model codenamed Manhattan and a “more premium” model with a Galaxy S7 Edge-like curved display codenamed Long Island. The device is also set to have out of the box support for Google’s Daydream mobile virtual reality platform as well as a QHD display, a first for a Huawei smartphone. The Chinese company has so far resisted joining the pixel race by sticking to 1080p panels on its flagship devices but that is now expected to change.
