  • Dual- rear cameras
  • Supports USB Type- C, instead of microUSB v2.0
  • Has potential to surpass the Mate 8, since its newer in the market

Huawei Mate 8

  • Offers the same options in RAM and ROM
  • Bigger 16MP rear shooter
  • Similar fingerprint scanner positioning (back)
  • More premium-looking design
  • Should be more affordable than the P9

It should be noted that the Huawei Mate 8 has a straight Kirin 955 while the Huawei P9 has a modified version of Kirin 955 though difference on the two chips isn’t exactly established yet.
