Leaked Huawei P9 pics show off dual-camera setup in closer detail

by: Jimmy WestenbergMarch 1, 2016


The Huawei P9 has been shown off in a few leaked images here and there over the past couple weeks, and today we’re getting a look at some more photos. The new photos, which come from VentureBeat’s Evan Blass, give us a closer look at the 2016 flagship’s dual rear-facing camera setup, as well as a clear look at the front of the device.

According to VB’s source who had some hands-on time with the device, the P9 is expected to launch in the first half of 2016 with a 5.2-inch Full HD display. It’s also slated to come with a Kirin 950 processor, Mali-T880 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. There’s also mention of potential 64 and 128GB variants of the device, though the source claimed that there’s no viable information to substantiate that claim. Given the slender size of the device, one would assume the battery size would be nothing to write home about. However, the leak mentions the P9 will come with a big 3900mAh cell, which is quite large compared to other flagships of this size.

Moreover, the Huawei P9 will supposedly come with a USB Type-C port, a fingerprint sensor on the back and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board.

When it comes to the cameras, the report claims the P9 will come with a pair of 12 megapixel camera sensors and Leica-made lenses. The dual camera setup should be able to provide some unique capturing capabilities, though nothing specific was mentioned in the report. The LG G5 just recently launched with dual rear-facing cameras as well, which enables the device to take wide-angle shots.

Pricing and availability information has yet to be revealed, though rumor has it we should be expecting the device to launch sometime in Q2 2016.

      I think it’s more like 5.36′, and perhaps the battery is somewhere around 3500mAh(which is still great, considering this will be a 1080p display)and also the Kirin 950 is very power efficient so this should last you two days with heavy usage.

      it’s probably the angle. look at how the photograph is being taken, from below. it’s like people legs look longer if the camera is at a lower angle facing upwards.

  • s2weden2000

    that’s right!

  • Johan

    What is up with OEMs thinking that it is acceptable to FAKE a minimal bezel design by just making part of the bezel black, so that when the screen is off, the bezel blends in with the screen, making it APPEAR as if it is all screen real estate?

    It just makes me wonder what other flaws these OEMs are trying to hide in their products…
