After unveiling the Huawei Mate 8 last year, we haven’t heard about a new flagship smartphone from the company yet. Thanks to the recent rumors and leaks, we know that the next flagship will probably be the Huawei P9. Now, a new set of live pictures of the flagship have leaked online, revealing the device in all its glory.
The Huawei P9 will reportedly focus on its camera capability. There will be a dual camera setup at the back with laser focus and dual LED flash, as confirmed by the pictures. Further, we can see a fingerprint sensor at the back. As for the body, the P9 features an all metal unibody metal design, which is used by many flagships these days.
As for the front, the phone seems to come with 2.5D glass. The borders around the display are visible and thicker than some devices, but on a dark background, it manages to blend in. Also, the company seems to be going with on-screen buttons instead of capacitive ones. Finally, all the ports seem to be located at the bottom. So, you get your headphone jack, USB Type-C port, speakers and microphone at the bottom.
This seems to be the one of the four versions of the Huawei P9 that will be announced in the coming weeks. This model, code named Eva, will feature a 5.2-inch full HD display. Other variants include a P9 Lite version with budget-friendly specs, P9 Max model sporting a much larger display and the P9 Premium model with better hardware.

This particular Huawei P9 variant will reportedly come with Kirin 950 (and not Kirin 955 as previously rumored) along with Mali-T880 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Under the hood, there is a large 3900mAh battery.
As for the rear cameras, it will be a pair of 12MP sensors and Leica-made lenses. The phone will reportedly be using the second generation version of the technology that was first used in the Honor 6 Plus.
As for the release date, the source didn’t mention anything about it. However, earlier rumors state that the phone should be released sometime in the Q2 2016. [source]
