Huawei Mate 11 could be a threat for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Samsung’s next big thing that is the Galaxy Note 9 will be upcoming later this year is said to have the same design similar to its predecessor. The device will pack Qualcomm’s top-end silicon that’s the Snapdragon 845 6GB RAM and will use the same camera’s as the Galaxy S9/S9+ with variable aperture technology while keeping the S-pen as its unique selling point which is more of a gimmick nowadays. As per many leakers, the Galaxy Note 9 will be a larger Galaxy S9/S9+ with a stylus, and there’s nothing special going on with it.

Huawei, on the other hand,�might surprise us at the time of Galaxy Note 9’s launch as the Chinese Telecom giant is planning to launch the Mate 11 smartphone which will be one hell of a package and well-known insiders perceive it as the real threat to the Galaxy Note 9. The Huawei Mate 11 will be powered by a Hi-Silicon�Kirin 980 chip, which will be much more powerful and terrific in performance and efficiency and will spank the Galaxy Note 9 and it’s Snapdragon 845�processor.

Other than that the tweet of the Chinese leaker also suggests that the Mate 11 will sport a far better camera than Huawei’s own P20 Pro which is it’s latest 2018 flagship with a 40 MP shooter and 3x zoom. So, a camera better than the P20 Pro, while the Galaxy Note 9’s same GalaxyS9/S9 Plus camera tech will feel the heat from Huawei’s Mate 11.

Now the only way Samsung could tackle the Mate 11 is with an In-display fingerprint scanner or a better version of faceID, both of which are possible but aren’t good enough as these are still Gen 1 tech. Samsung will be looking ahead to pack in a more refined version of the under the display fingerprint reader and also shrink down on bezels to take on the Mate 11.
