First official glimpse at Huawei P9: dual-cam confirmed

The Huawei P9 is about to get unveiled in some two weeks, on April 6th, but we've already seen it leak out once in the hands of Huawei president Richard Yu, and now, Huawei has published the first official teaser pictures of its upcoming flagship.

These latest pictures of the Huawei P9 confirm that it will indeed come with a novel, dual-camera system on the back, a metal back plate with a fingerprint scanner on the back and carefully chamfered edges for a more comfortable feel.

The Huawei P9 is expected to be the central announcement on April 6th, but not the only one: Huawei is actually said to be working on releasing three new phones within the P9 family: the P9 that we've just talked about, the P9 Max, a larger phablet with a massive 6.2" display, and an affordable 5" P9 Lite.

We have seen earlier the alleged specs for these devices appear on some Chinese phone re-sellers, and here's what's expected in each one of them:
