Maximised Performance and Speed with Kirin 960
The Kirin 960 is the world’s first chipset to feature an ARM Cortex-A73/A53 Octa-core CPU and Mali G71 Octa-core GPU. The CPU reduces power consumption by 15%, with its GPU boosting energy efficiency by 40% as compared to its predecessor. Graphics performance is also improved by up to 400%.
The Android Experience Reimagined
The newest iteration of Huawei’s EMUI interface reimagines the Android operating system to improve the Mate 9’s aesthetics and functionality. With EMUI 5.0, the Huawei Mate 9 becomes more intelligent and efficient over time by understanding consumers’ behaviour patterns, and ensures that highest priority applications are given preference subject to system resources.
A Safe, Faster-Charging Battery
The Huawei Mate 9 incorporates a 4,000 mAh battery with Huawei’s new SuperCharge technology, delivering over two days of uninterrupted performance. This includes a 20% increase in gaming time and a 40% increase in call time.
The Huawei Mate 9’s Super-Charge technology enables a 50% improvement over the previous generation, providing enough battery power to watch two movies from 10 minutes on charge, or a full day’s use within only 20 minutes.
