Besides the flagship P9, Huawei is also expected to release a smaller P9 Lite and phablet P9 Max at its April 6 event in London. Today, renders of the P9 Lite purportedly show off the device for the first time and several new images have surfaced of the P9 being used in the wild…
According to OnLeaks, the P9 Lite has a 5.2-inch display and is 7.6mm thin. Like its larger sibling, the device will reportedly have a metal body and a somewhat Nexus 6P-like camera visor. Additionally, the device has supposedly forgone USB Type-C for microUSB and has a rear fingerprint sensor.
Notably, this display size and single camera is different from a previous online listing that said the P9 Lite would only have a 5-inch 1080p display and the same dual-camera setup as the P9.
The P9 is expected to be the more powerful device of the two with a 1080p 5.2-inch display, Kirin 950 processor, 32GB of storage, and 3GB of RAM. Its large 3,900 mAh battery is charged via USB Type-C and has a 12MP dual-camera with OIS. The device is expected to run Android 6.0.1 with Huawei’s EMUI skin on top.
Users on Chinese social media have captured images of the device supposedly being used by a Huawei executive, which we find believable as our own Stephen Hall saw an executive using a dual-camera phone at CES earlier this year, but was unable to catch a photo in time. This device looks very similar — if not identical — to the one that we saw.
