Huawei recently announced a strategic tie-up with camera maker Leica. Rumours, leaks, and logic point at the Huawei P9 as the first phone to benefit from the partnership, but will it?
We should know soon. How soon though, is a question that these fresh leaks attempt to answer. According to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), the phone will launch next month.
Gizchina News of the week
April 6th is when @evleaks suggests the P9 will see light of day. Although now a near-household name, Huawei was late in joining in on the smartphone party, and despite that has managed to scale up at impressive rates in the recent past. So much so that the Chinese brand is now eyeing Korea’s Samsung and US’s Apple.
Huawei’s mid-range phones continue to do well across markets. The brand is also helped a great deal by the presence of its sibling brand Honor, which deals with online buyers for the most part.
With not a lot to go before the launch of the P9, Huawei will have a lot of hopes pegged on to the phone.
