Huawei Announces Three Mate 9 Variations In Less Than Two Weeks

Huawei announced no less than three Mate 9 variations in less than two weeks, so the fact that it's just silently released another one won't surprise anyone. After announcing the regular Mate 9 forerunner and the superior Porsche Design Mate 9, the handset creator rolled out the Mate 9 Pro model in China, according to Gadgets360. This model is worthy for all those who don't want to lavish a great deal of money on a lighter smartphone, depending on the market.
