Succeeding the Ascend P6 and Ascend P7, the Huawei P8 (pictured above) was released in April this year as a thin smartphone made out of premium materials. Not long after its launch, we heard that Huawei was already working on a successor, which should be called Huawei P9.
While some rumors had it that the P9 would be released before the end of 2015, that's not going to happen. According to Chinese website Mobile-dad, Huawei intends to launch the P9 in March 2016 - thus almost one year after the P8.
It's said that the Huawei P9 will sport a 5.2-inch display (just like the P8, though we don't know what pixel resolution the new screen will have), while offering a "curved design." It's not clear if the display itself will be curved. The upcoming smartphone should be powered by Huawei's own octa-core Kirin 950 processor, possibly featuring a fingerprint scanner, 4 GB of RAM, and a dual rear camera with laser auto focus.
A Huawei P9 Max (sporting a 6.2-inch Quad HD screen) could also be introduced sometime next year, but we don't know if Huawei is planning to unveil it at the same time with the 5.2-inch P9.
