Huawei Mate 9 pro vs Huawei Mate 9:
Okay, so what’s changed? Well the most notable change in the two devices is the display technology. Huawei mate 9 has a Phab-let sized screen (5.9-inches) while the pro version is considerably smaller. It features a 5.5-inched screen with dual curved edges, like the Samsung Galaxy s7 edge and the Note 7. Further more, the display technology has also been changed. Mate 9 pro features AMOLED Quad HD display unlike the Mate 9 which has an IPS LCD supporting only HD display (1080 x 1920 pixels).
Huawei has also changed the position of the Fingerprint scanner, and has moved it from the back to the front so some of the users might find it easy to use this feature now.
Apart from the above changes, Huawei Mate 9 pro shares the same specification as the Mate 9 but with a less expensive price tag, which is a good thing, right?
The Mate 9 pro is only available in China and the phone will retail at at 4699 yuan ($685) for the 4GB/64GB model and 5299 yuan ($775) for the 6GB/128GB model. The only problem is that, Huawei still hasn’t confirmed about this phones availability outside China just yet and it remains to be seen what will be the price of this phone when it comes to Pakistan. As far as we think, the phone might be priced around 70,000 Rupees for the 64GB model , and for the 128GB model 78,000 Rupees might be charged.
