Huawei’s latest flagship device, Mate 9 was launched in Pakistan last month. It is currently available in 6 color palette, including Space Gray, Moonlight Silver, Champagne Gold, Mocha Brown and Ceramic White.

Today Huawei has sent a press release regarding special edition “Obsidian Black Mate 9”, that will soon hit the markets. Although Huawei Pakistan is marketing it as “Matte Black”.

Do keep in mind that aside from color, this black Mate 9 is similar to the previous variants in terms of hardware and price.

If you remember almost 5-6 years ago, majority of the phones were black. However, when the manufacturers made a shift to metal bodies, they preferred gold and silver colors – as they looked more premium.

However, preferences change quickly and now black is the new gold. Apple, OPPO, Huawei, Xiaomi and all other major smartphones brands are exclusively marketing “Black Editions”.

Mate 9 Black Color Availability:

Huawei is currently running a teaser campaign on its social media channels about the black edition and pre-booking has started on Daraz and all Huawei brand shops.

This new black edition is not to be confused with “Porsche Edition” Mate 9 as these two are not the same, neither in terms of hardware nor the price.
