New images show us what the Huawei P9 could look like

We've been hearing rumors regarding the upcoming Huawei P9 for a while now — so far, reports claim a March launch, dual camera setup, and an impressive performance from its processor. An alleged leaked schematic suggested that Huawei might do away with its signature fingerprint scanner placement on the back and incorporate it with a hardware home button — similar to Samsung's own solution. However, a number of new leaked pictures, which allegedly depict the P9's design, show us that this may not be the case.

The images are reportedly official press renders, though we'd still take them with a grain of salt. They show us the P9 in 5 different finishes – black, grey, white, gold, and — of course — pink. We can see the dual camera setup, which we've heard rumors about before. How exactly Huawei is going to use two sensors is yet unclear – back when it made the honor 6 Plus, the two sensors were symmetrical 8 MP ones and worked in conjunction to achieve fast focus and supposed better nighttime performance. It's quite possible that the alleged dual camera of the P9 would be the same.

As far as design goes, we see a lot of Huawei's metallic DNA in the renders, with the fingerprint scanner sticking to the back, and no hardware navigation buttons on the front. There is a dual-tone LED flash placed a bit weirdly on the phone's back – further from the cameras than conventional.

As far as hardware goes, the rumor mill says a 5.2-inch display, a 64-bit, Huawei-made Kirin 950 SoC, 4 GB of RAM, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Reports say that there will be four different P9 variants – a phablet P9max, a more compact P9 lite, the regular P9, and a supposed premium, high-power edition of the P9. We don't expect to see the smartphone at the MWC 2016 next week, but hey – who knows?

Huawei will probably ruin the phone with their terrible EMUI.

I don't know about that...
People are not talking about P9 because there is nothing to talk about. There have not been any real leaks so far!
Personally, I am pretty happy with my P8 and I will definately consider the P9.
If only it came with a more Stock-Android-Firmware or a way to flash CyanogenMod...

You can't put cyanogenmod on it? Go find the cyanogenmod installer apk app somewhere and try using that.

Huawei's P series does follow an iPhone/HTC One design language but it is far from a copy.

Tired of all the people saying ohhh looking like an iPhone 6, no it does not, a f*cling iPhone doesn't have the fingerprint scanner on the back nor dual cameras. I think the design looks amazing, to me it looks like the Nexus 6p from the back with that black strip. My next phone if its thin enough.

The P8 was a darn good looking phone. What is this overly rounded corners abomination?!

It's just an image
I think the the real phone will look even better .
Looking at the image 4 , it looks like a very thin phone just like all P-series .
This one may have a bit rounded corners then straight ones like P8 .
