On Sunday, a picture that claims to show the chassis for the Mate 9, opened up a box of possible specs for the device. Earlier this year, Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang said that the Mate 9 would be equipped with a pair of 20MP cameras on back of the device. The image of the leaked chassis displayed the two cameras on the back cover, along with a fingerprint scanner
Jiutang also said that the Mate 9 would be powered by the home grown Kirin 960 chipset. The component, built using the 16nm process, will reportedly contain an octa-core CPU using ARM's new Artemis cores. The chip supports LTE Cat. 12 and CDMA networks.
Once the phone is certified by TENAA (China's equivalent to the FCC) we should get a good look at the unit's specs. A recent visit to GFXBench credited the Mate 9 with specs that obviously belonged to a different handset.
