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.
