Huawei is currently running a very teasing ad campaign regarding the upcoming P9, which isn’t slated to be officially revealed until April 6. However, enough images have been leaked of the device so far that we already have a pretty decent idea of what the handset will look like. Unless this is an elaborate ruse on an unprecedented scale, it looks like we’ve gotten another glimpse of the P9 in the hands of Huawei’s president.

What do we know so far about the Huawei P9? First and foremost, the dual camera riding on the back seems to be cause for celebration among the brand’s fans. We can’t wait to actually get our hands on the device and see how well the dual 12MP cameras do in terms of image quality. That’s a rumored spec, of course, but there are many other rumored specs for the P9 running around. For instance, we believe it will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box, and that it’s powered by 3GB of RAM and a Kirin 950 chipset. The screen is a delightful 5.2-inch 1080p screen by all accounts, and we’d be very surprised to find it’s packing anything other than a 3,000mAh battery. The selfie snapper? Word on the street is 5MP.

What do you think of the Huawei’s latest flagship? Excited to see it finally unveiled two weeks from now? Let us know your opinion in the comments below!

    Nice, I hope i can buy it right after April 6th

    Kirin 950’s GPU is so weak that it lags behind last year’s SD810 and Exynos7420. It’s about a third as powerful as SD820.

    • Novage

      No you are wrong. Kirin 950 is better than s810 and 7420 in game

    • Jake

      Are you kidding me? Didn’t you see the performance comparison between the Kirin 950 against the Snapdragon 810 and Exynos 7420? It smoked them in terms performance and I won’t be surprised if it manages to do the same against the Snapdragon 820.

        I am talking about GPU performance, not CPU.
        Last gen Adreno smokes this gen Kirin GPU.

          Lol look the french website frandroid. Kirin 950 manage to do 60fps in real racing 3 by far better than 7420 with only 45

    Why is it in the press render of the suppose to be fingerprint scanner at the not the same. In the press render it seems the shape is squarish while the actual photo is more of a rounded one. It might however not be the P9 were supposed to believe.

    • Josh Pizzy

      The press render is wrong, Huawei officially showed a picture of the fingerprint scanner and it’s more squarish.

  • Kunal Narang

    I like Huawei’s devices. I recently bought the Honor 5X and I love it. The P9 will be no exception as well.

  • Arman

    With those specs it wouldn’t be anything special
