Huawei Picks Continental Markets Ahead of UK For Mate 9 Release

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Huawei has just launched the Mate 9, an all-metal Android that feels very promising indeed. It's also rather large, featuring a finger-stretching 5.9-inch display. We've spent some quality time with it, and you can find our first impressions here.

Unexpectedly, however, the company appears to be delaying the Mate 9's UK release.

The press release lists France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain among its "first-wave" launch markets, but leaves out the UK. Completely. This despite execs saying that only the grey and silver models of the phone would be available to British consumers... so it's still likely to come here at some point... probably.

Huawei hasn't mentioned any specific dates yet, and we've asked them to shed more light on the UK situation.
