Can The New Huawei Phone Give iPhones a Big Challenge?

Huawei's Mate 9
Huawei has just launched their own version on an iPhone-killer, the Mate 9. This is a high-spec, high-price smartphone which could see the China-based company square up to market leaders Apple and Samsung.

The latest device in Huawei's Mate series boasts a 5.9 inch full HD screen, inviting comparison with Apple's iPhone 7 Plus and the now discontinued Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

The manufacturer is making a big play on the handset's processing power, which Huawei said made it the "most powerful smartphone in the world." According to Huawei's testing, software in the Mate 9 performed 80 percent better than major competitors after one year of use.

However, Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics, was not overly impressed by these claims, describing the product as merely "another big screen smartphone." But, Mawston, speaking to CNBC on the phone, did concede that the Mate 9 was a "nice incremental improvement" and that the release did a good job of "filling the Note 7 gap, at a lower price point than Apple."
