While the Huawei Mate 9 and Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9 arrived with plenty of fanfare, Huawei have quietly listed the Huawei Mate 9 Lite on their global site. Featuring a dual rear camera, it appears that Huawei are reserving the monochrome mode for the higher-end versions as the 12MP + 2MP rear cameras instead focus on wide aperture or "bokeh" mode much like the Honor 8. The overall design is the same though but the Leica branding is gone as well. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet.
