Recently, we’ve hearing a lot about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7, but what about other flagships made by other manufacturers like the upcoming Huawei P9? The Chinese smartphone maker launched the Huawei P8 back in April, but we’ve heard little about its successor, until now.
Dual camera setup?
According to a new report from Mobipicker, the Huawei is planning something new with the Huawei P9. According to the report, the yet to be announced smartphone will rock a dual camera setup, if a leaked photo (see above) showing the part of the labeling for the rear camera is to believed.
The photo shows us the labeling of the rear-facing camera. It shows that the device will be available in an “LTE” version and “Deluxe” version. Additionally, it reveals two colour options of the Huawei P9, which is white and gold. More importantly, the part shows two holes for the camera, suggesting that it will sport a dual camera setup. Past reports, if accurate, reveal that the smartphone will sport a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation.
Other rumoured specs include a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD), which works out to a pixel density of 424 ppi. Under the hood is said to be a Huawei-made Kirin 950 SoC, which is an octa-core processor that offers four Cortex-A72 cores, four Cortex-A57 cores, and a Mali-T880 GPU to handle graphics. It is also said to rock 4 GB of RAM. Going back to the Kirin 950, a past benchmark result showed that it beat the already impressive Samsung Exynos 7420, which can be found under the hood of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. This said, expect the Huawei P9 to excel when it comes to performance.
So when do we get to see the Huawei P9 in the flesh? According to previous reports, Huawei could launch its new flagship before the end of 2015, which means it could be available during the holidays.
