Huawei, the Chinese tech-giant, launched their high-end phablet Huawei Mate 9 globally in Germany earlier this month with possible availability starting from Europe and Asia. We believe Pakistan is going to be one of the first markets Huawei is about to bring its latest venture.

Huawei Pakistan is all set to hold a countrywide launch event for Huawei Mate 9 in Pakistan on December 7, 2016. The Chinese manufacturer has already started taking pre-orders for the phablet with additional gifts offerings. The retail pre-booking process will last for 10 days, from November 24 to December 7, 2016.

You can start placing pre-orders by visiting your closest Huawei brand outlets and providing your address and other relevant contact information. You will obtain a Huawei voucher from the retailer after making the security deposit that will be entertained in the form of a gift as well as priority service. The Gift box includes limited edition Huawei Goodies and a super-fast charger.

Expected Price Tag

Huawei pricing in Pakistan is similar to other markets or even lower, the new Huawei Mate 9 is also being reported to have lower price than the one announced in Germany earlier this month.

According to sources, the Mate 9 will get a price tag of around PKR 70,000 in Pakistan. Make sure, It is not an authentic price which can be changed at the launch. But considering the pricing model of the company, the said price is most likely to be around the official price.

5 Reasons to go with Huawei Mate 9 in Pakistan

We have gathered top five reasons you would consider Huawei Mate 9 as your ultimate choice, leaving iPhone 7 Plus or Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. There might be more motives you may mention in the comment box at the end of this article.

1. The Largest Smartphone

We must say the Huawei Mate 9 is a genuine phablet, offering an enormous 5.9-inch screen. The Mate 9 is a clear break in the market, and will thrill those users who are on the lookout for a big smartphone. Competitors like the OnePlus 3T, the Galaxy S7 Edge or even the iPhone 7 Plus only offer smaller 5.5 inch screens.


The final nail in its competitor’s coffins, the Mate 9 is an elegant, seductive smartphone. With its classic design, it will invite those business customers who want an modest mobile. The finishes are excellent and the metal is pleasant to the touch. In short, the Mate 9 will not disappoint.

2. Great Camera

With the P9, Huawei had inaugurated its partnership with Leica, the iconic camera manufacturer. The brand also benefited from its new dual sensor system. The Mate 9 is an opportunity for Huawei to go even further.

You’ll find a 12-megapixel color sensor (RGB), paired with a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor. The result is exceptional. The Mate 9’s strength is in its contrast levels and the camera capabilities in poor lighting conditions. If you like black and white photos, it’s one of the best smartphones.


Finally, the video facility hasn’t been forgotten. You can film in 4K. There is simply no optical stabilizer. It’s the digital stabilizer that does all the work.

3. Excellent Performance

Inside the Mate 9 you’ll find the latest HiSilicon processor, from Huawei’s subsidiary, specifically the Kirin 960 with 4GB of RAM. This SoC has a traditional quad core Cortex-A53 which works at a maximum frequency of 1.8 GHz and more importantly, the new ARM quad core Cortex-A73 that runs at a maximum frequency of 2.4 GHz.

According to Huawei, this processor offers an automatic learning algorithm, that ensures a quick and flawless experience even after 18 months of continuous use. As for graphics, you’ll no longer be left behind with the Vulkan compatible Mali G71 MP8 chip.


In practice, the Mate 9 is a delight to use. The multitasking facility is very quick and the benchmark test scores place it among the best out there. Have a look at our test for more details.

4. Android Nougat

While the latest Android update may have been official since the end of August, only a few smartphones can currently benefit from it. With the Mate 9, you won’t be disappointed since the smartphone already offers Android 7.0 and also the latest EMUI 5.0 version. You’ll have access to all the latest Nougat updates and from the simplicity of a Huawei user interface.


Over time, the Chinese manufacturer appeared to have ditched its similarities to iOS to move more and more towards Android. The smartphone even allows you to install an application drawer. This is proof that there is still some hope for Asian manufacturers.

5. Extended Battery Life

Its predecessor, the Mate 8, was already having a strong name for its hardware. The Mate 9 successfully picked up that torch. The most recent Huawei phablet has a 4000 mAh battery capable of easily ensuring a day of intensive usage. If you are a more moderate user, it’s possible to get two days of battery life out of the device.


Fast charging is also available. The Mate 9 uses “SuperCharge” technology that offers 5A fast charging, a 50% increase from the previous device. Enough battery to last you all day can be achieved after being connected to the terminal for around 90 minutes.
