Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design (SIM Free/UK)
Huawei is developing some incredible smartphones, truly challenging the premium end of the market with powerful and beautiful products.
The standard Mate 9 is such a phone, including high-class camera sensors, processing power and fingerprint recognition, all packaged into their updated EMUI interface.
This Porsche Design model takes the Mate 9 and makes some subtle changes. The casing has been reworked into a limited edition finish that includes Porsche branding. A physical home button has also been added to the base of the phone.
Huawei has also streamlined the design; the phone is physically smaller and lighter, featuring a 5.5" QHD screen, rather than the standard Mate 9's 5.9" FHD screen.

Huawei is pushing the boundaries of Android smartphones. Be it design, construction, photography or user interface, the Mate 9 Porsche Design is an example of a modern smartphone that makes no compromises.
Every specification is reaching for excellence in an attempt to be the most desirable device you'll lay your eyes on.
The first thing you'll notice is the incredible screen. The Mate 9 Porsche Design showcases a truly stunning 5.5" display with Quad HD (2K) resolution. This is encased in a super-svelte chassis that's only 7.5mm thin.
Slim bezels and 2.5D curved glass that seamlessly transitions to the metal edging, make for a phone that hides its size by being a dream to hold. Polished aluminium edges contrast with the glossy rears for a contemporary finish.
The circular fingerprint sensor can be found centre-mounted on the reverse of the phone, just below the cameras. This can be set up just for unlocking the screen, or for accessing secure areas of the phone and authorising online payments.
The speaker and microphone systems have also seen an improvement since earlier Huawei Mate phones. There are now 4 noise-cancelling mics for ultra-clear call quality and audio capture during video recording.
Two Brilliant Cameras
Why have one camera when you can have two? Dual-camera systems are fast becoming the way to challenge the perceptions of mobile photography.
Both of the Mate 9 Porsche Design's dual cameras use Leica lens technology. The main camera is a traditional 12MP colour sensor, complemented by a 20MP monochrome (black and white) module.
By combining the images taken by these two sensors, stunning results are created. The standard RGB sensor captures a deep colour range, whilst the monochrome sensor is able to discern fine details and contrasts.
You also have the option to produce stunning native black and white photography, without resorting to a post-production filter.
Another neat effect of using two sensors simultaneously is simulating depth of field. Huawei's advanced camera application allows you to modify the virtual focal length and achieve incredible Bokeh and Zoom effects previously unattainable on smartphone cameras.
It's not all about the back though - the Mate 9 also provides a powerful 8MP selfie camera with autofocus and automatic shutter modes.
Speed & Performance
With their size and prominence, Huawei has been able to develop their own range of powerful processors. The HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor is one of the most advanced mobile chips available today.
An octa-core unit, the Kirin 960 has a high-speed 2.4 GHz four-core and complementary 1.8 GHz four-core CPU. Supporting DDR4 RAM and utilising the incredible new Mali-G71 GPU for graphics, the Mate 9 Porsche Design can handle anything the modern world of mobile computing and gaming can throw at it.
Huawei has also implemented a new Machine Learning algorithm. This runs continuously in the background, monitoring your usage habits. This takes information on the apps you regularly use and is constantly optimising CPU, RAM and ROM resources in the background.
This is known as Smart Resource Allocation. Memory intensive background apps are automatically closed. Fine-grained scheduling maximises CPU efficiency. RAM resources are automatically recycled, so there is more memory for priority apps. Even the ROM is improved: an exclusive channel of Storage I/O makes the apps you use the most work faster by retrieving and saving data more quickly.
The result is a phone that responds as fast as possible, with improved battery life.
User interface - EMUI 5.0
Huawei's EMUI is an example of how to modify the Android system into something almost completely different. All of the core Android elements are available, styled into a fresh and unique experience.
Messages, Alerts, Photos and Notifications are all easier to interact with thanks to the EMUI modifications.
