Following recent rumors and leaks suggesting Huawei will announced its next smartphone in April, the company today sent out invitations to an event taking place in London on April 6th. Although the exact time hasn’t been confirmed yet, Huawei will hold a press event at some point in the afternoon of that day. We’re expecting the Chinese smartphone maker to announce the P9 during the event, alongside the rest of its family.
As we saw in a redacted leak yesterday, the Huawei P9 isn’t explicitly mentioned, but the “#OO” and “change the way you see the world” very much hints at a dual camera setup, which has been shown off in previously leaked real-life images of the smartphone. The images showed a device with the aforementioned rear cameras, square fingerprint sensor, laser autofocus and dual LED flash plus a USB Type C port on the bottom.
Other rumored specifications include a Kirin 950 processor and 3GB RAM (955 and 4GB in the Premium model) as well as a 1080p resolution 5.2-inch display built in to an all-metal body with slim bezels. We’re also expecting to see a huge ‘Max’ phablet, and a more affordable Lite model of the P9.
Last year, Huawei chose the exact same venue and a similar timescale to announce the P8 to the world, and we’ll be in Battersea Park on April 6th to bring you coverage of the follow-up device being unveiled.
