It seems that the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which was hosted in January, was just the beginning for Huawei. The Chinese company is all set for the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February to launch a new device. Only a chosen few from the IT circuit were given the coveted press invites.
Not much is mentioned in the invites, but it indicated that the Huawei P9 device is slated to appear during the MWC event in Barcelona. The invites also read, “Come see how Huawei continues to meet the demands of the next generation of mobile innovation.” Last month, the company announced the US-focused Honor 5X and the Mate 8 during the CES event.
The announcement of the Huawei P9 flagship by the Shenzhen-based company suggest that the device will go up against the likes of LG and Samsung, who are expected to unveil flagship models at the February conference, reported Independent. If specs are to be considered, the Huawei P9, which is a sequel to the Huawei P8, is likely to feature a full HD display. The device is rumored to have a 5-inch screen. The corners are expected to be rounded rendering a soft appeal. A notable physical difference with the P8 is that the P9 will probably have a physical home button on it. Of the most interesting specs, the P9 is said to include a whopping 6GB of RAM and will house the Kirin 950 processor.
Huawei’s other two variants of the P9, the P9 Lite and P9 Max are rumored to come with 5.2-inch display and 6.8-inch display, respectively, reported Android Pit. In another report by VentureBeat, a fourth device is expected to join the brigade, which is rumored to be the ‘feature-enhanced’ model. It is expected to carry the largest screen along with more storage and RAM. The camera configuration includes a dual-sensor and a dual-lens camera. Other camera features include post-capture refocus, filter application and simulated aperture adjustment.
