huawei p9 leak

Purported press images show the final design of the new Huawei P9 with dual camera design, metal body and fingerprint scanner.

Huawei are likely to launch the new Huawei P9 after MWC sometime this month (or early next), but they seem to be finding it hard to keep the phone a secret as press images of the phone have shown up in various colours.

The images show the all metal phone in gold, white, pink and grey colour options, all versions showing off a dual camera design with dual LED flash and laser auto focus. The metal chassis also has a fingerprint scanner in the rear.

From the front the images show that Huawei will remain true to their onscreen Android navigation, and that the system will be once again based on Huawei’s own Emotion UI.

Specifications for the Huawei P9 include a 5.2-inch FHD display (the same size as the Xiaomi Mi5), 4GB RAM, 8 mega-pixel front camera, dual 12 mega-pixel rear cameras, 2900mAh battery and powerful Kirin 955 chipset.

Pricing is likely to start at around 1999 Yuan for a basic version with China Mobile support and 16GB memory, while a top of the range version with full network support and more memory (poss 128GB) is going to cost considerably more.

    Really nice looking! Looks like a combination of iPhone 6 and Huawei Mate 8

        Iphone 5 the top and bottom panels were the same color.

          The iPhone 6 is a mix of the iPhone 5 and the iPod Touch.

          Believing that Apple copies the design of HTC is ridiculous.

            No it’s factual. Apple copies a lot of things from Android.

              You are broadening the subject.

              So
              1 the iPhone 6 is a mix of the 5 and Touch

              2 the only thing Apple copied from Google is the notification tray. And Google basically copied everything to change Android when the iPhone came out so…

              HTC One M7 + Desire 613 = Iphone 6.

              If you think the only thing Apple copied was notifications you are one of the most diehard iSheep I have ever come across and you live in severe denial.

              End of discussion because you’re wrong lol.

              Actually the notification feature was published in Cydia AppStore (Jailbreak AppStore), afterwards Android implemented in their OS.
              Basically you’ll find many Android features in Cydia.

              Never said you wouldn’t Android copies a lot, Apple copies a lot, Samsung copies a lot. It’s Industry wide.

              What notification feature?

            • alan4195
              February 16, 2016

              I think you’re both partly right. Apple obviously set out to adopt the contours of the iPod Touch, but when choosing the antenna design they opted for something decidedly HTC.

              Let’s face it, Apple didn’t have to make the color difference between the plastic antenna bands and metal body so stark. After all, the color of the plastic doesn’t affect the antenna’s performance.

              At the end of the day, who cares who copied what from who? The important thing is that both platforms have benefited greatly from borrowing and trying to improve upon each’s good ideas. That’s good for folks in both camps.

    yesss dual 12 mp cameras!!! the duoscopic camera TIme is hereeee

    • VMortens

      With the camera being as bright, as in Honor 6, but with more mature firmware as in Honor 7, it will certainly be an interesting phone. Could be a bit too pricey though.
      BTW. It’s hight time for Chinese producers to start using OIS in their phones, as Samsung uses it now even for it’s midrange (see: Galaxy A5). I doubt this one will have it.

        The Mate 8 has ois

      • balcobomber25
        February 16, 2016

        I would hope Samsung includes it in the A series seeing as they charge over $300 for phones that would cost under $150 in China.

        There have been phones already from Lenovo/Zuk, Huawei, Vivo, LeTV and Gionee with OIS.

      • Cpaun

        Huawei has OIS for many models. Mate series, P8, etc. Dual cameras with OIS might be tricky.

      While we’re at it, why not bring back the glasses-free 3D display? 😛

    Love the design and I love where Huweii is headed. But I hate the UI and the price will be twice as much as a Mi5.

    Honor 6 plus’s dual camera was top class .
    I am highly optimistic about the dual 12 MP camera .
    Disign looks ok. But it’s just a render , I believe the original will be eye catching beauty .
    “MAKE IT POSSIBLE”. . . . . .
