Huawei has been rather active lately, having just introduced two new smartphones not so long ago. The two smartphones launched by Huawei, are the Huawei Mate 9 and the luxury edition Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design. The standard model of the Huawei Mate 9 is the company’s flagship phablet. The Porsche Design edition is a luxury version of the device and it costs €1,395. Even though Huawei has just launched these brand new phones, reportedly they still have another device that’s going to be launched, the Huawei Mate 9 Lite.
There have been reports to show us that the new Huawei Mate 9 Lite has just passed its FCC certification. Huawei did the same thing with their Huawei Mate 7 Lite and Huawei Mate 8 Lite. They did not announce their products beforehand and just surprised us with their launch. It seems they are keeping the tradition and going the same route with the Huawei Mate 9 Lite. The FCC report showed that the device has the BLL-L23 FCC ID. Reports are also stating that the new upcoming device is going to ship with a 5.5-inch display, being considerably smaller than the original Huawei Mate 9 (5.9-inch). Worth mentioning is that the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design has the same 5.5-inch display size, the difference being is that it is curved.
The new Huawei Mate 9 Lite is going to be just like a smaller version of Huawei Mate 9. The device is going to sport the same dual camera setup on the rear side, the difference might be that it will not get as many sensors. Rumors are also pointing out that the device is going to be equipped with 3GB of RAM, a Kirin-branded SoC, we still need to wait to find out which SoC. A rear facing fingerprint scanner and a single LED flash sensor placed also on the back side of the smartphone. The Mate 9 Lite versions is surely going to also come with dual SIM card slots.
