A device to keep you ahead. Equipped with the Kirin 960 processor, the Huawei Mate 9 is the Android phone with blistering performance to run apps, videos and HD games seamlessly.
Say goodbye to lagging performance. Huawei’s cutting-edge Machine Learning algorithm delivers consistent performance by automatically prioritising CPU, RAM and ROM resources based on user habits.
The Huawei Mate 9 automatically learns user habits to build app priority. The system anticipates the user’s next moves to prepare resources in advance.
This process is run on the phone, not the cloud for better performance and privacy protection.
Smart resource allocation
The Huawei Mate 9 automatically manages resources by prioritizing CPU, RAM and ROM for optimal performance and closes memory intensive background apps. Within the CPU, fine-grained scheduling maximizes computing efficiency. For RAM, it automatically recycles memory resources, creating more memory for priority apps and enabling stutter-free performance. And for ROM, it opens an exclusive channel of Storage I/O making the apps you use the most work even faster.
Android core components optimization
The new F2FS file system improves the I/O storage performance. This speeds up the database engine allowing pictures to load more smoothly. The optimized performance of the rendering engine gives better control and a faster reaction to your touch.
The Huawei Mate 9 offers a truly revolutionary battery life. With its large 4000mAh battery and smart power-saving technology, you can enjoy two days’ usage*. State-of-the-art HUAWEI SuperCharge technology safely charges the device for a full day’s power* in 20 minutes.
