We have seen the first broken Xiaomi Mi Mix, Mi Note 2 and Mi 6. But losing $350 or $550 isn’t that much sorrowful until or unless you are speaking. Witnessing the waste of $1300 smartphone is the most dreadful thing a tech enthusiast can imagine. Yes, we are talking about the 8,999 yuan ($1300) flagship ‘Huawei Mate 9 Porsche’. Moreover, because of the limited stock, its price goes up to 10,000 yuan.
The design and configuration of Mate 9 Porsche and Mate 9 Pro are almost the same. Only the difference is the memory upgrade 6GB + 256GB, along with the luxurious Porsche logo. These two highlights allow the smartphone to sell way expensive than other variants of Mate 9. It should be noted that Porsche Design was originally an industrial design luxury brand, created by the Porsche Auto 911 designer, Ferdinand Alexander Porsche in 1972. The band isn’t related with Porsche anyways.
However, getting back to the point, the president of Communication World ‘Xiang Ligang’ posted the first drop picture of his own Huawei Mate 9 Porsche. He said:
A careless, my Mate 9 Porsche fell like this, the glass surface broken, opened, and miserable condition
Looking at the picture, the phone dropped and hit the floor vertically, the bottom side made the first contact with the surface. The whole glass is cracked at the bottom. In order to repair, the whole screen must be replaced. But, even the price of the screen (4688 yuan/$680) is more than the standard and Pro version of Mate 9. So think before you buy one of the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche.
