Today’s Deal – Huawei Mate 9 and Band 2 Bundle for $399

Today’s Deal is on the fantastic phablet from Huawei, the Huawei Mate 9 that is bundled with the Huawei Band 2 fitness tracker.  Today only, on Amazon,  you can pick up the 5.9″ phone with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and the Band 2 for $399.  That’s $200 off the original $599 price tag for the phone alone.   I reviewed the Mate 9 earlier this year and it is an outstanding device with an awesome display, great battery life and excellent cameras.  At this price, it is well worth considering.

So what does $399 get you in the Huawei Mate 9?  A lot frankly.  It is a 5.9″ phone running Android Nougat, an octa-core processor running at 2.4GHz and Leica optics dual-camera setup shooting at 20MP and 12MP respectively with OIS.  The front facing selfie camera is 8MP shooter.  You also have 64GB of built-in storage that can be expanded up to an additional  256GB thanks to the MicroSD slot.  Finally, it comes with a US warranty so you are not buying an international version of the phone.

The Mate 9 is being sold unlocked so the question is always carrier compatibility.  For those of you on GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, you are good-to-go.  For those on Sprint and Verizon, the phone is CDMA compatible too. Here are the range of frequencies supported:

  • GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
  • CDMA 800 / 1900
  • HSDPA 800 / 850 / 900 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 / 2100
  • CDMA2000 1xEV-DO & TD-SCDMA
  • LTE band 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 9(1800), 12(700), 17(700), 18(800), 19(800), 20(800), 26(850), 28(700), 29(700), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500)

Those frequencies are going to cover every carrier here in the United States but as always, double-check with your carrier before ordering.

Like other phones in their current lineup, the Huawei Mate 9 will be receiving an update to Android Oreo at some point in the future, likely the first quarter of 2018.

As for the Huawei Band 2, here are a rundown on the specs:

  • Scientific sleep tracking: keep track of light, deep and REM sleep stages to make your sleep truly restful
  • Heart rate monitoring: dynamic heart rate monitoring, continuous, automatic heart rate monitoring
  • 5ATM water-resistance: support all day wear, rain, and even a swim in the pool, which allows you to dive into becoming a better you
  • Professional running Coach: One press to start the workout app instantly and get workout data such as recovery time and Vo2 Max
  • Long battery life: a single charge gives you 21 days of normal usage.

Head over to Amazon to take a look and order yours.  The sale price is while supplies last.
