Huawei has been extremely successful last year. The company has managed to sell 108 million smartphones, and they’ve also managed to become world’s third largest smartphone manufacturer. Huawei managed to sell quite a few devices in the first and second quarter of this year, and they haven’t even announced a higher-end phone in 2016. Well, that’s about to change soon, the company has started sending out invites for their April 6th event in London, and they will almost certainly going to roll out a new line of ‘P’ devices at the event, read on.
The company is expected to announce the Huawei P9, P9 Lite and P9Max in London, as direct successors to the P8 line which was also introduced in London back in April 2015. We’ve already seen quite a few leaks and rumors regarding mainly the Huawei P9, and now we have some additional info to share with you, and it regards all three of these phones. Specification info surfaced on OppoMart, a Chinese reseller which tends to out smartphone specs before they’re even announced. Keep in mind that OppoMart was wrong when it comes to specs before, but on the other hand, they’re sometimes completely right, so… we’ll let you be the judge here, and see if you believe this info to be true. Anyhow, let’s get started, shall we.
According to OppoMart, the Huawei P9 will sport a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 950 64-bit octa-core SoC will fuel this handset, and a 12-megapixel Dual Camera setup will be available on the back, along with a dual-LED flash. The Huawei P9 Lite, on the other hand, will be a mid-ranger it seems. The phone is said to sport a 5-inch fullHD display, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. This handset will be fueled by the Snapdragon 650 64-bit octa-core SoC, which is Qualcomm’s mid-range chip.
And last, but not least, the Huawei P9Max. This will be Huawei’s new phablet, and according to the source, it will ship with a 6.2-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. The phone will be fueled by the Kirin 955 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 12-megapixel Dual Camera setup will also be available here, just like on the Huawei P9. All of these phones will be made out of metal, and will sport a fingerprint scanner on the back. Take this info with a grain of salt, as always, though chances are these specs are at least partially correct.
