Huawei recently unveiled the Huawei Mate 9 flagship at CES 2017 and it has been garnering a lot of news, thanks to its Amazon Alexa integration. The $599 smartphone comes with top-notch specs and the latest Android 7.0. The phone runs on Huawei’s custom Octa-core Kirin 960 processor, packs in 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and a dual-lens 20 MP+ 12 MP Leica camera module.
