As Chinese smartphone manufacturers such as Huawei Technologies and Xiaomi Inc. are starting to take the world by storm, it wouldn't be too shocking to see that these firms are now infiltrating in perhaps the biggest market — the United States. The latter may still be technically in its planning stage but the former is now on all fours in launching one of its most critically and commercially massive of an iteration, Huawei Mate 9.

Reliable tipster Evan Blass has revealed that Huawei Mate 9 is scheduled to go on sale in the U.S. on January 6. In his official Twitter account, Blass shared a render of Mate 9 which is shown to be sporting a typical marketing strategy in which the utilization of its on-screen time and date are indicating its launch date. As such, the time and date indicated on the post are 9AM on January 6 in Las Vegas. A CES announcement is highly likely to introduce the smartphone as the device has already been launched internationally. Alongside this, there might be some carrier news that could be dragged into this launching.

Meanwhile, Huawei Mate 9 U.S.' release date might also go with a pattern similar to that of the previous Huawei entries, notably the "unlocked availability online" through Huawei's U.S. online store. Likewise, the anticipaton on Mate 9 is quite unprecedented as the device is being pushed to be an alternative to Samsung's infamous Galaxy Note 7.

Huawei Mate 9 comes with a massive 5.9-inch display with fullHD resolution. It is powered by Huawei's proprietary Hisilicon Kirin 960 and has Mali-G71 MP8 on board. It is supported by an equally reliable 4GB of random access memory (RAM) and 64GB of native storage.

Optically, Huawei Mate 9 boasts a Leica-produced set of dual-cameras on its rear. The dual 20MP and 12MP comes with f/2.2 aperture along with optical image stabilization (OIS), phase detection and laser autofocus. Its front-facing snapper is armed with an 8MP camera and f/1.9 aperture.

Huawei Mate 9 runs the latest Android 7.0 Nougat along with Huawei's Emotion skin. It comes in a variety of color variants such as Space Gray,Moonlight Silver, Champagne Gold, Mocha Brown, Black and Ceramic White.
