Huawei P9 oppomart pic

We are gradually closing in on the Huawei P9’s April 6th launch date and today Oppomart appears to have leaked the smartphone’s hardware specifications rather early. Not only that, but the leak seemingly confirms the existence of the P9 Max and P9 Lite versions of the handset as well.

According to the listings there will be three handsets in the Huawei P9 range, each targeting slightly different price brackets in the market. This strategy would allow Huawei to cater to multiple market segments and regions with a single flagship range. The Huawei P9 looks to be the all-rounder model, boasting a 5.2-inch 1080p display, octa-core Kirin 950 processor, and a reasonable $499 expected price tag. Although we should stress that Oppomart’s import prices won’t necessarily reflect Huawei’s actual target prices.

The P9 Max is the highest end model in the series, boasting a 6.2-inch QHD display, extra storage and RAM, as well as a slightly more powerful Kirin 955 processor. The P9 Lite cuts off a portion of the RAM and internal memory while opting for a hexa-core Snapdragon 650 processor, in order to substantially cut the handset’s price tag. The Lite model probably fits more into the super-mid-range section of the market, where value for money is the key factor.

All three of the Huawei P9 handsets are said to come 4G FDD-LTE connectivity, a dual-SIM tray, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow installed out of the box. The software will be based on Huawei’s own EMUI version of Marshmallow. The spec sheets also state that all three of the models will feature the dual-rear camera technology that we have seen leaked a number of times and that Huawei made references too in its launch event teaser.

Of course, this leak comes quite some time ahead of the expected official launch event and might not necessarily reflect final hardware. Still, what would you think about the Huawei P9 range if these specs turn out to be accurate?

    it’s already been seen in FCC docs that the P9 has a 2700mAh battery… don’t get why Oppomart even gets a single mention for making up all this **** or putting together previously rumored specs.

    • Leaks. They’re always different. Until the official release, nothing is sure. So please chill.

      • Andras

        I have seen other leaks from yesterday that confirmed a 3900 mah battery

  • RG

    Only 3000mah for the p9 Max? Not sure about that.


    I’d get the P9 Max strictly for the “laster focus”

    • Kanoosh

      must be some super exclusive tech ;)

  • SaRPeR

    P9 max’s battery info seems low to me.

    • Steven Fox

      Pretty sure that was wrong, as maybe the same cameras on all phones. Sounds too dreamy for the P9 Lite to have the same flagship camera that the P9 and Max have.

  • King_Android

    Huawei makes some awesome phones. Will definitely replace Samsung if they continue this trend.

    • Major Sceptic

      I don’t know about awesome just yet cheap perhaps?

  • Fornavn Etternavn

    Lol, 5,2 and 6,2 inch phone with same battery size

  • Easy

    Packing small batteries to make the phones lighter is a horrible trade-off in my opinion. The phones should last at least a day and a half, similarly to how the Nexus 6P does.


      God I wish my 6p lasted a day and a half..

  • Steven Fox

    WoW! That P9Lite is a killer! SD650 with the same dual camera, at 299$ – that’s got to be the phone to get!

  • Josh Pizzy

    Please let the P9 Max have a bigger battery than that … What’s the point of having a phone bigger than the Mate 8 with more power hungry components and a 25% smaller battery?!

  • Doug Steinberg

    3000mah? seems awful low for a flagship…

    • Novage

      So what do you think of the 2800mah of the G5 ?

      • Doug Steinberg

        Too low for me. My Nexus 5 was 2800 or so and that couldn’t get me through half a day of heavy use, but the G5 is swappable at least so you can pop in a fresh one and ru

        • Andre Senge

          Lol 3000 is to low for you then go look for something with a 6000Mah then, they exist.

  • Chris N

    The max also seems a bit light at 144 grams??

  • Josh Gilman

    Oooo, oooo, ooo….P9 MAX! YES!

  • pa pa

    Want this phone P9MAX!!

  • Major Sceptic

    Design looks better in some ways than the 6p, they did not put side buttons on the middle of the phone, so that’s a plus,
    the battery size if it is correct sounds a bit lack lustre.
    Fit and finish looks a bit average , about on par with the 6p, hopefully that is not a finished product.

  • Jack_Package

    I wouldn’t think for a second to buy it, if the P9 had the same screen, SOC and RAM as the Max…but then again, my Sony Z2, has similar specs, and works perfectly. The only reason I’m considering replacing it is the fresher OS, and the camera…what I’m really curious about this phone is the Leica involvement, although the P8 had already a pretty good shooter. Can’t wait for the first reviews.
