A powerful processor

With the tagline “A Step Ahead”, Huawei Mate 9 comes with the Hisilicon Kirin 960, which is an intelligent and faster processor. The Kirin 960 is 30% quicker than the Kirin 950 because it uses the Cortex-A73 cores while the Kirin 950 uses Cortex-A72 cores, so the new processor is an upgraded version.

The 20MP sensor will capture the photos in the monochrome format while the other will capture in the RGB format. Other features of the camera include the phase detection function, laser autofocus, and dual LED.
