Huawei has been the most successful China-based company in the mobile space last year. Huawei managed to become world's third-largest smartphone manufacturer, and has also released a number of compelling devices, including the Nexus 6P, Huawei P8, Mate 8 and the Huawei Watch. That being said, Huawei's sales are still quite strong, at least they were in January this year, and the company is yet to announce their first high-end smartphone this year. As you probably already know, the Huawei P9 is expected to arrive soon, read on.
The Huawei P9 rumors and leaks have been surfacing for quite some time now, and yesterday's leak actually shared quite a bit of info when it comes to this smartphone, which we'll talk more about in a second. Let's first tackle the news that just came in, Huawei P9's release date. The company's official invite surfaced online, and it reveals that the Huawei P9 will be introduced on March 9th, in Berlin. The image itself is quite revealing, it clearly states the city and the date, and the image of the beer kind of hints at the number '9', as in P9, not to mention that the date is March '9' as well. This is almost certainly Huawei's P9 teaser, even though we cannot be 100% sure, of course. The company will, quite probably, introduce the Huawei P9 Lite and P9 Max alongside the Huawei P9 on said date.
Now, according to the leaked material, the Huawei P9 will sport a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, just like its predecessor. The device will be fueled by the Kirin 950 64-bit octa-core SoC, and 3GB of RAM will be included on the inside. The 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras (dual camera) have also been mentioned, and the device will be made out of metal. The Huawei P9 is likely to ship with 32GB of internal storage, and the Type-C USB port is going to be available on the back of the device. The Huawei P9 Max, on the other hand, is expected to ship with 4GB of RAM on the inside, and the company's Kirin 955 64-bit octa-core chip will fuel it. That is pretty much it for now, stay tuned for further details.
