Huawei Mobile officially launches Mate 9 in the Kenyan market


Huawei Mobile has officially launched its Mate 9 in the Kenyan market following its global launch early in November. Available in all Huawei retail outlets across the country, the KES69,999 Huawei Mate 9 is a predecessor the Mate 8, which was launched earlier in the year under the Mate series.

The launch of the Mate 9 comes months after unveiling the Huawei P9 in the local market.

So far the device has received much traction in the Kenyan market with over 90% pre-orders made across the region in the past two weeks. According to Mark Hemaobin, Managing Director, Huawei Mobile – Kenya.

Android smartphones face a common flaw – over time, they lose their speed, responsiveness and momentum, in what we refer to as performance erosion. With the Mate 9, Huawei is introducing a dynamic interplay of industry-leading hardware and advanced software that works together to bring consumers a new kind of Smartphone experience that gets smarter and more efficient the more you use it.

The HUAWEI Mate 9’s Kirin 960 chipset puts faster computing at your fingertips, and its innovative, intuitive EMUI 5.0 learns and adapts to your usage behaviors, optimizing performance throughout the lifetime of the device, while also offering breakthrough battery power.
