The Mate 9's camera setup includes two rear-facing Leica shooters: a 20MP monochrome sensor and a 12MP color sensor. An 8MP selfie camera is also on board. Bluetooth 4.2 can be used for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices. 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi is also integrated for high-speed Internet connectivity. NFC allows you to instantly connect to other NFC-enabled devices for content sharing, simply by tapping the two devices together. A-GPS with GLONASS is also available for using Google Location and Maps services. Additionally, the Huawei Mate 9 features a 4000mAh battery which can be quickly recharged with the reversible USB Type-C connector.

Leica Dual Camera

The back of the Mate 9 features a pair of Leica cameras. The f/2.2 20MP monochrome and 12MP RGB color cameras shoot simultaneously, and their images are combined for bright colors without sacrificing detail. The Hybrid Zoom function lets you zoom in 2x while retaining sharpness. Dual-camera pixel-binning technology provides brighter images in low light, and optical image stabilization reduces shake and vibration. The dual cameras also enable bokeh and refocusing. 4K recording with h.265 compression lets you take high-resolution video. Dual-LED, dual-tone flash improves lighting, and three types of auto-focus (phase detection, laser, and contrast detection) reduce unwanted blur.

At the front of the device, an 8MP f/1.9 camera with autofocus takes self-portraits and shoots FHD 1080p video. It can take a shot with a touch of the fingerprint reader or when it senses a smile.

Alexa

Turn your Mate 9 into a personal assistant with the Amazon Alexa app. The app lets you manage your smart home, ask questions, shop with Amazon and other connected establishments and retailers, hear the news, and work out. Just open the app and press the mic button to launch Alexa.

Once your SIM cards are installed, you will be able to receive phone calls and text messages from either without needing to manually choose which one is active.

question

Can it be used in Israel and what is the cost of insurance/warranty in Israel?
Asked by: Barry R.
On the home screen it will say Huawei.us which means that it was designed to operate in the U.S. with it's particular bandwidth, you can go onto the Huawei U.S. website and check the bands and see if any match your country, but I strongly suggest you do this because it can be a huge issue since it's a great phone but if you don't have the proper bands it makes the purchase redundant. Hope this helps and yes the phone is worth the little investigating
