Other than the standard and expected Mate 9 smartphone, Huawei also took the stage in Germany to announce an unexpected premium and limited edition smartphone Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design. As the name suggests, Huawei has partnered with Germany-based Porsche Design, a subsidiary of Porsche with the focus on designing luxury and limited edition products.
As a result, you can see that the Mate 9 Porsche Design features design completely different from any of the previous Huawei smartphones. It has been priced at €1395 (Rs. 1,03,553/$1551) and will be available from European Porsche Design Stores starting this December. The availability will expand to Huawei retail stores and worldwide Porsche Design Stores across Asia, Middle East, and Europe from January 2017.
