Charcoal gray Huawei P9 spotted ahead of today's unveiling

After a boatload of leaks and rumors, the Huawei P9 is just hours away from its official unveiling. Set to pack a slew of high-end hardware throughout, one of the marquee features will be the dual rear-facing camera setup, which photography specialist Leica has helped to build. The handset has been snapped several times in silver over the past couple of weeks, and as the finish line approaches, a black / gray variant has been spotted in the wild. 

Whilst the design of the P9 hasn't been in question for a while now, this new leak shared by GizmoChina appears to confirm the existence of a darker model. The new image is fairly low-resolution, which is always a little bit suspect, though perhaps Huawei has purposely kept the sharper images wrapped up for the big showcasing. 

Along with the silver and this new black / charcoal gray color option, we also have a pretty good idea of the P9's specs thanks to a recent GFXBench leak. Under the hood, expect to find the octa-core Kirin 955 chipset clocked at 2.5 GHz, along with 3 GB of RAM. The device will also carry 32 GB of storage, and according to previous info, there will be a 2900 mAh battery to keep it running. 

The two 12-megapixel rear cameras are of particular interest, mainly because of Leica's aforementioned involvement. Plenty of firms talk up the shooters of their unreleased handsets, though the end product often disappoints. With Leica on board, here's hoping the P9's cameras manage to live up to the hype.

Looks like a cheap 6P. That back glass should be kept minimal like the 6p, not destroyed by writing on it and covering the camera contours with metal. That just looks inconsistent.

for me, the writing on the side makes the design asymmetrical balance not leaving empty space when you look at it. hopefully the camera performs well.

The P9 is just like the 6p Ugly in the begging (leak etc) and more and more beautiful
