Huawei P9 Tipped for April 6th Unveiling


Huawei may finally reveal its 2016 flagship smartphone, the P9 soon. How soon? The first week of April. April 6th to be exact. This is according to Evan Blass who has been very accurate in the past regarding leaks of various devices.

We had previously heard that Huawei may launch the P9 on March 9th but with that date fast approaching and not many details being available, anything goes.

The Huawei P9 is expected to be available in at least four variants and pack several upgraded features and specifications over last year’s P8. While Huawei will likely be retaining the full HD panel we have seen in its devices over the last 18 months including the P8, Mate S and Mate 8, it will be incorporating some Leica optics in the 12-megapixel P9 camera which will be a dual-camera setup. A fingerprint sensor, a bigger (3,900mAh) battery, Android Marshmallow and the powerful Kirin 950/955 are also expected on board.
