Huawei president photographed with dual-camera handset; it looks like the Huawei P9
Incredibly, it was back in October when labels leaked indicating that the Huawei P9 would contain a dual camera set-up. Since then, every subsequent leak confirmed that the phone would have two lenses on the back. Today, photographs out of China show a president of the manufacturer using a handset with dual cameras on the back. Could this be the P9?

We will know for sure when Huawei holds its next media event on April 6th. Invitations show a hashtag #oo used on the invite, which is a clue hinting about the dual camera set-up on back. A new series of teasers for the phone also uses the same hashtag #oo to promote the dual cameras that we should find on the back of all four P9 variations.

The image certainly matches what we've seen before, even down to the fingerprint scanner on the back. We expect to see four different versions of the phone. The Huawei P9 Lite will carry a 5-inch screen carrying a Snapdragon 650 SoC, 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM. The Huawei P9 features a 5.2-inch display. The Kirin 950 SoC is under the hood with 3GB RAM/32GB ROM. A 5.8-inch display will be found on the Huawei P9, Special Enhanced version, which will be powered by the Kirin 955 chipset. 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM will come with the phone. Lastly, the Huawei P9 Max will carry a huge 6.8-inch display, and will also be powered by the Kirin 955 chipset. It features 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of ROM.

Richard Yu, chairman of Huawei Devices and CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, said last month that the company will pass Samsung and Apple over the next five years to become the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Is this a realistic objective for Huawei?


Thanks for the tip!

It's always nice to comfort yourself kid, just don't look into the mirror and you'll live a happy life, even though I don't have such a problem. :)

Really? You don't have such problem?
Then explain your comment - Ugly phone for ugly people...
It is a matter taste. Point of view.
For me P8 was one of the most sleek devices - especially in black.
P9 also looks very nice and I hope to get one in black.
What you'll comment when Apple comes with dual back camera? Ohhh it is the best in the world!
You're kid or at least acting like one.

Huawei is nothing but crap. Buggy software, bad camera, ios copy software.

Played with my friend's huawei phone and hated it.

Even he regrets getting one.

I hope this huawei president isn't using an iPhone or Galaxy himself privately.

Yes, it's unpleasant to use but it's never bad. But the camera is terrible, I approve that. Especially the selfie cam. Colours seem to be washed out every time.

Once a Chinese phone gets highlighted, Everyone seems to go nuts. A very nice hint of apprehension. The silliest ones are, 'copycat', 'clone software' and 'nothing but crap'. You know that these can be proven to be wrong, right?

They are fans of big named brands .
But now they are given a tough time by the Chinese who were once popular with cheap quality products .
This is why they can't accept it .
And trying to give them a bad name

Because they always tend to be clones. OnePlus is an exception. Look at Huawei,Meizu,Oppo, Xiaomi etc Their software is very much like iOS. Sometimes Hardware is similar too.

Hardware similar to iOS?!?
Do you know what you talking about?
Do you ever hold P8 for example? It is one of the best designed phones. Also camera is pretty decent and works well. All reviewers give P8 high score. If you don't like it, please do not blame for copycat. The only similarity with iOS is absence of app launcher, but everyone decide for himself. Personally - looks nice.

No, you're wrong

'they always tend to be clones'

They aren't, well there are many clones from China, but the brands you mentioned are not clones.

'software is very much like iOS'

Every software is very much like iOS, if you said those phones' software are 'very much like'

'Sometimes Hardware is similar'

No, it's not. And, it doesn't matter.

There is a common wrong belief in many countries that China only copy and clone stuff from the world, might be true a couple of years ago. But these days, the fact says otherwise, there are still many clones, but those brands you mentioned are not one of them.

As a dual sim user I hate hybrid sim tray, knowing the P8 has no dedicated slot for microsd so I dont expect it to be on the P9 as well..
I'll probably just wait for the next Moto or the next Asus Zenphone.
