While we are still awaiting the next device in the Huawei Mate series, the Huawei Mate 9, another Huawei smartphone render has surfaced on the internet and this one is said to be the Huawei Mate 9 Pro.
Since the Mate 9 has not been released, it is safe to say that both the Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro would be released together, leaving users to pick whichever suits their needs.
The Huawei Mate 9 Pro sports some advanced features over the standard Mate 9 in aspects like software, hardware and display resolution. However, most of the specifications remain the same.
