According to Pocket Lint, the camera design will be much different from the P9:
“The dual camera system will sit near the top, with the two lenses sitting vertically, rather than side-by-side horizontally like the P9 and P9 Plus. On either side of the camera system, there’s a dual LED flash and a laser sensor for autofocusing, while the round fingerprint scanner sits underneath.”
The Weibo leaks also suggest that the Mate 9 will come in multiple colors or different shades of the popular gold color such as Amber Gold, Ceramic White, Amber Grey, Rose Gold, Moonlight Silver, Sky Grey, Mocha Gold, Champagne Gold and Enamel Gloss Black.
The screen will be large and will take up most of the front end of the phone with the fingerprint scanner at the bottom. The power and volume buttons are on the right, according to the leaked images and this is consistent with other Huawei phones.
Huawei P9 and P9 Plus are the best phones you can get from the manufacturer; however, Mate 9 is expected to be much better.
Mate 9 is expected to be the first phone from Huawei to feature the Kirin 960 chipset. The processor is rumored to use four Cortex-A73 cores along with four Cortex-A53 cores, according to Digital Trends.
One of the most talked about features of the Mate 9 is the camera. Digital Trends reports on the rumored camera:
“The camera will also be a highly powerful one, according to the rumor. In fact, it will boast two massive 20-megapixel sensors. It’s unknown why there will be two sensors and if one of the sensors will be monochrome, as was the case in the dual-sensor in the Huawei P9. The most recent leak from Weibo also suggests that the Mate 9 will have Leica branding, as the camera company’s logo can be seen between the dual lenses. Reports suggest the camera will boast an aperture of f/2.0.”
