Just recently, very convincing images of the Huawei P9 have been leaked. Coincidentally, Huawei has also announced that it will be holding an event on the 9th of March; could this be the launch event of the P9? Well, not exactly.
Despite the fact that many believe Huawei will be unveiling the P9 on the 9th of March next week, this simply isn’t the case. According to TechRadar (who has spoken with a spokesperson of Huawei), the event next week is…just a small gathering.
Unfortunately, there won’t be any new device unveiled by Huawei next week, which explains why the teaser is simply an image of beer being poured into a glass. Regardless, the Huawei P9 is definitely an interesting smartphone with very respectable specifications, although these hardware have not been confirmed yet.
One of the most interesting features of the upcoming P9 is its dual-camera system; this was revealed by Evan Blass aka @evleaks, who has a good track record of being accurate with his information. According to Blass, the lens of the P9’s two 12MP rear cameras is made by Leica, which will be the first time the German camera manufacturer is working with Huawei ever since their partnership was formed.
Other leaked specifications of the Huawei P9 include a Kirin 950 processor (the same one powering the Huawei Mate 8), 32GB of internal storage, 3GB of RAM, a generous 3,900mAh battery, and a rear fingerprint sensor. There are also rumours that the P9 will come in as many as four different variants.
As of the time of this writing, Huawei has not revealed any specific launch date for the Huawei P9. Although the Chinese company has confirmed with TechRadar that the 9th of March “event” is simply a small gathering, there’s still a chance that the P9 will be unveiled there, albeit a very slim chance.
