Huawei-1

If the numerous rumors that we have seen so far turn out to be correct, then we already have a pretty good idea about what we can expect from the upcoming Huawei P9 flagship. Just to reaffirm a lot of the earlier leaked pictures, a new set has appeared online capturing the P9 out in the wild.

The pictures appear to show the Huawei P9 out for a spin with one of the company’s presidents. As before, we can spot the same dual rear camera configuration, along with an LED flash and space for a sensor that could also be the laser auto-focusing system that has been alluded to in some spec leaks. The P9 appears to retain a rear fingerprint scanner placement, rather than opting for a home button alternative, and looks set to come with a metal uni-body build.

One of the other major talking points about the smartphone is that it is rumored to come in three variants, each with slightly different specifications. The Huawei P9 Max is said to be a larger handset with additional RAM and a QHD display, while the P9 Lite is a more affordable 1080p handset with just 2GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 650 processor. The regular P9 sits between these two in terms of price and hardware.

The Huawei P9 looks set for an April 6th launch, so there isn’t long left to wait for all of the official details.
