Huawei upcoming flagship P9 smartphone will be officially unveiled this week, Wednesday April 6th at an event in London. However, yesterday, the Huawei P9 made a surprise visit to the GFXBench’s website, revealing most of its specifications.
Specs and images of the forthcoming flagship smartphone have already been circulating online for a while. However, the GFXBench listing only confirms what we already know. According to the site, the Huawei P9 will be powered by Huawei’s own octa-core processor; HiSilicon Kirin 955 clocked at 2.5GHz and paired with ARM Mali-T880 GPU for graphics, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be supplemented by a microSD card.
The 5.1-inch smartphone will have a 1080p Full HD touch screen and a 12-Megapixel main camera, presumably a dual lens camera made by Leica Camera, as previously reported. At the front, the P9 will be equipped with a generous 8-Megapixel secondary camera. Unfortunately, based on the listing, the Huawei P9 can’t capture 4K Ultra-HD videos. Both cameras only offer a Full HD video recording option.
The Huawei P9 will also come with a rear fingerprint scanner, NFC, USB Type-C port and a decent size battery to power Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system and Huawei’s EMUI custom made user interface. When it goes on sale, the Huawei P9 is expected to ship in silver, gold and rose gold metallic colours. Huawei is also rumoured to launch a few variants of the P9 smartphone; P9 Lite and P9 Max are expected to become official at the same time.
